So-So Food. Very different from Beijing's Paulaner

If you've been to the Paulaner in Beijing then I recommend you skip this one as you will be disappointed. To start with, they do not give you the complimentary bread basket. Instead we ordered the "pretzel tree" which comes with 4 (or so) dried out pretzels, a little tub of mediocre liver pate, a... read more

Had a corporate dinner to fill our stomachs with German beer. (Possible dislikes) 1) dishes are OK but lack a sensitive "touch". Potatoes, sausages, pork knuckles etc are all acceptable but none of the dishes hit me as "impressive" 2) The band was too loud. (Possible likes) 1) very quick waiters/waitresses. They accepted and served the beers orders very quickly... More

I've visited here on three occasions. I always have the schnitzel, which is real veal. It's is fairly close to what you'd be served in Germany. The downside; the meals always vary. The forget the nuances. For example, the first time it was served with lemon wedges and capers, the second visit, no capers, the third visit, no lemon wedges.... More

As I think of writing this review I wonder what on earth possess one to go to a German restaurant in China??? Then I remember, I had promised the sales team I work when I am there that I would take them to a place of their choice... And this was what they decided for. The place I would say... More

Stopped in for a beer and dinner. I had the wheat beer, it was OK. I had the salmon steak, it was ok. And the service was ok. Nothing to brag about.

Went there twice just to make sure, i was expecting much better quality and more choices. I got a gulash soup, very watery and little taste, got then the 8 saussages dish, what to say accetable, unfortunately half of those were cold and brought over mash potatoes, would have preferred the staple "sauerkraut". Overall a nice ambiance but average and... More

I really liked the atmosphere and the layout from the restaurant. We ordered two beers and some food. The food part was a German cold cut platter with cheese, 3 different sausages with sauerkraut and potato salad as well a Schnitzel with French fries. Everything was served at once accompanied with bread. The presentation of the food was ok for... More

Good attention, reasonable prices, tasty food. Recommendable, within the many offer surrounding this restaurant. At night, there's a musical show. Nice place.

Came here for dinner on 12/13/14. Arrived and was immediately taken to smoking section, and then asked if we wanted non-smoking. Asked for non-smoking and then taken to one table in the non-smoking section. Sat down and then two minutes later, asked to move to a different table, that was located by the beer tap room. Beer tap room was... More

We were sightseeing and decided to stop at a non-Asian restaurant for a change. This was a good choice. I ordered seafood pasta which was excellent. The clams were tender and flavorful. My brother had a huge order of schnitzel and he ate all of it. Beer and wine was good. All four of us were pleased. Plus it was... More
