An absolute must place to eat

One of the best eateries I have been to anywhere in Europe. Odd to find a place in middle of the Baltic that serves traditional Chinese provincial dishes. The servers were beyond helpful on their recommendations and service. If you are coming to this island destination this is a must place to eat... read more

So weird to find a outstanding Szechuan kitchen on an island in the Baltic sea. But it is real. And the food is just absolutely fantastic. The tofu, spare ribs... and the "meet heaven chicken in red chili" will make you grasp for air and order another serving. Highly recommended.

Sichuan spiced food is rather unusual in Sweden, but very tasty. This restaurant started about six years ago and is extremely popular. You need to make a reservation in advance. The menue offers a good selection of different meals with very different and unusual tastes. It is definitely not expensive and you should order 2-3 different items. Each one is... More

Definitely not your usual Chinese restaurant starting by the name.The place has a few Asian items in it's decor but it is mostly a lively, trendy relaxed atmosphere and music. The menu is short (always a good sign) but the 6 dishes we tasted were absolutely delicious except one pork dish that I found horribly salty. ( We barely touched... More

I had an excellent dinner with a couple of friends at Surfers. The staff was great and assisted us in selecting seven or eight very good dishes. Everyting tasted great and I will surely visit Surfers again when returning to Visby!

I miss the amazing sichuan food you can get in Vancouver. When I saw this listed in my TripAdvisor app, I had to give it a try. I chose the sweet and crispy fish, shrimp balls (my server told me they are also called "lucky balls" because they are served at weddings), and ginger scented tofu. The best thing? not... More

The waitress is very nice and she introduced and explained every dishes we ordered. The food here tastes really good! I am a Chinese and I have to say the taste of the food is excellent. It makes me think of home. The price is a little bit high - 80 sek per dish. But I think it is still... More
