“Too much MSG”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013 via mobile

I've got "china restaurant syndrome" after eating there. The taste is delicious but after that I was very thirsty(My body is very sensitive of this thing). I am sure that they put much MSG on the food. There's lunch buffet everday and cost not so expensive. But I go there not for the food, just when I want to gather with friends, coz the place is a little bigger and the atsmosphere is good.

“Great Buffet, lovely decor”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

Fancied some Chinese food on a Monday night in the middle of moving house. This place seemed to be the closest.
It's a large restaurant, but even on a Monday night there were quite a few diners and a pleasant hum of conversation.
The evening buffet was on special for 10,90 Euros, normally 14,90, for all you can eat. This included two choices of soup, plain rice, fried rice and noodles, and a good selection of stirfry type dishes, with some deep fried items (prawns, calamari, vegetables) and some crispy duck. It also included a help-yourself icecream freezer!
The decor was very tasteful, with a lovely ambience. The service was friendly, and more prompt than a lot of other German restaurants.
Another table ordered a selection of dishes from the a la carte menu, which looked delicious as they came past our table.
A good selection of beer, wine, tea and other non-alcoholic beverages was also available.
We'll definitely be dining here in the future.

“Fun find with Buffet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

Fun find, with a buffet and some excellent quality food. Price was reasonable and very good service. They also do Teppanyaki style but I didn't bother, there were plenty of other choices. Tea was very good also.

It was quite crowded, but service was impeccable.

“Simply marvelous!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2011

What a lovely place this is. Great ambiance, excellent service and the food is varied and delicious. Lunch is 6.95 and dinner is 13,95 Euros. Dinner comes with Mongolian cooking. Fresh sushi is included. Take your time, you are never rushed. A menu is also offered with a hot plate at your table if you wish. The street car stop is right across the street and it is within easy walking distance from the Crown Plaza and other hotels around Bismarkplatz.
