I order 1 big platter of zur bierstube specialties. The taste was so terrible. The pork knuckle was so salty The sausage is just so so far from the rating on tripadvisor. If you already eat paulaner, you're going to be dissapointed. When i saw the rating, i hope that i can taste the real german taste. Note for the... More

After you've eaten all the Chinese food you can tolerate, you may be lucky enough to stumble across Zur Bierstube in Qingdao, China. Qingdao was a German colony from 1891 - 1922, and some of the German culture still survives. The waitstaff all speak fluent Mandarin, English, and German. The food was ausgezeichnet. My Jaegerschnitzel was wonderful, and the gravy... More

Good German food and beer. Value for money. Service bit slow and seems having lack of menu knowledge. It s worthy another try, though. Try to improve the service. Where there is a will there is a way. ,

I've gone in a few times to eat and its always been very tasty, Very good burgers and sausages. Service like most all restaurants in China has to be yelled for. The philly Cheese Steak far from Philly but pretty good lacks enough beef and at least in the two I've tried could be gristly and tough to chew. They... More

Although the Zur Bierstube is located a little too far out for most tourists to stumble upon it, it can easily be combined with some sightseeing. Shilaoren beach is 200 meters away, adjacent is the marvelous Grand Theater and otherwise it's on the way to or from Laoshan. The restaurant brings a welcome western option in Qingdao, where non-Asian eateries... More

In Qindao there are two Bierstube Restaurants. One is in the old german part of the city and one is next to the beer festival area somwhere more to the east. We visited both. The eastern restaurant looks a little industrial but its still cozy. The restaurant in the german part fits a little better into the context and its... More

We ate at this restaurant in August after visiting the beer festival,it was very busy but we were served fairly quickly. The food is typical German fare and fairly calorific although we did have salads for starters. We didn't have the pork knuckle as we had a small child with us and it would have been too long to wait.... More

We encountered "Zur Bierstube" in the German street, which seems to be the newer location of the two. The food was good. Best German sausages we had so far in China. The staff is nice but they have difficulty getting the order right. We ordered as side dishes mashed potatoes and sauerkraut but got potato salad instead. We decided to... More

Went here with friends after church on Sunday. Wanted to try the famed pork knuckle. We were invited to pick our own seats, "anywhere in the restaurant", friendly staff that spoke pretty decent english. The menu had pictures and english and chinese, which was a nice touch. We ordered a pork knuckle and each tried the pea soup. If you... More
