Description: Swede & Kraut, owned by a German citizen for many years (more than 10 years) is an institution in Nanjing for German food: it's the best and most authentic German food you can get.

We spent 9 months in Nanging and the Swede & Kraut was a main staple in our weekly dining. Highly recommend the schnitzel & pan fried potatoes. The beer is always cold and the staff are friendly & efficent.
