“Thai-In berlin?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

When our tour guide recommended this place, my first reaction was to say, " Thai, in Berlin? That's like having Mexican in France." Yet, my partner made a good point: In any large metropolitan city you'll find excellent international food. This is no exception!
First off- I'd recommend reservations, we went on a sat and had to wait 45 minutes for a table. The best way to describe this place is a Thai tapas place. The portions are smallish and meant to be shared between everyone. You'll enter into a journey of flavours ranging for the spicy to sweet to the tangy. This place is definitely worth a stop in your stay in Berlin. Its pocket friendly, trendy, well located, and best of all delicious.

“Fun, funky - and filling”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

Just a short stroll from the Circus Hotel, this place was always busy, whenever we went past. After we'd eaten there one night, we understood why. It's a sort of Thai tapas bar, where you order several small dishes at 3 euros, and share them. Make sure you also order either rice or noodles (1 euro) as well, or you may well still be hungry. Brilliant prawns with avocado, loads of meat dishes. They do a few bigger dishes, but almost everyone gorges on all the small ones. We ordered six bowls, plus one of rice and one of noodles, and it was exactly the right sort of amount. Most of the tables are long trestle ones, which you have to share, but it's all part of the fun. We were sitting at the end of a trestle and the waitress asked us if we would move to a smaller table for two, so they could accommodate a party of five which had just arrived. Luckily by then we had finished our food and were just having drinks, but otherwise I would have found that slightly off-putting, if we'd had to march across the full restaurant carrying our bowls and chopsticks.But perhaps that's just the way they do it here. Whatever, it was a good meal, with a certain modern buzz about the place; well worth a visit. The ginger ale drink (I think it was called Gorgeous Ginger was very nice, as was the mango milkshake).

“Thai/Indonesian flavours in the heart of Berlin – Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

If you are looking for a nice, fresh, healthy but quick meal in Berlin Mitte, Transit might be one of the best options in the area. Heck, compared to some other places we’ve tried, maybe one of the best in town. Casual but modern Asian dining, Transit offers a fantastic value for money to guests of all ages.

We highly recommend making a reservation a few days in advance to avoid queuing for a table. The place seems to be extremely popular with locals and tourists alike. Once you get seated and get a chance to try the food, you will understand why. Their home-made drinks or non alchoholic cocktails are also yummy and nicely presented (loved the mango shake!). With delicious dishes and prices like 3 euro / tapas-style starter bowl and 8 euro / main, it is definitely worth a visit!!
