“Hip place, great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

Yes, I know, Asian food in Berlin... but consider that Berlin is a thriving and diverse cosmopolitan city and you realise that you might find a gem of any ethnic food restaurant in this city, among which we count this one! From the outside it looks nondescript but inside the place is a buzz with packed tables, diverse clientele, hip servers and yummy smells. Go for the small plates, that's what they do best. For two people we ordered 7 small plates, one order of noodles and one order of rice. It was actually too much food but what the heck, small plates are 3 euros each and come out of the kitchen fast so if you don't like one order another and if you are still hungry just keep ordering! Along with two beers and one glass of wine our dinner for two came to 40 euros... you can't beat that!

Definitely make reservations and don't be late! We were a half hour late because we misjudged rush hour and luckily they still had out seat but it just meant we had less time as we were told before hand that we only had the table for an hour and a half.

“VERY busy, Great Asian food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

I booked a table earlier in the day when the restaurant was empty. When we arrived we were squashed onto a table that was only 4 inches from the ones either side. Service was very swift, as was the foods arrival but I can't say it was a really relaxing meal. It all seemed loud, fast and cramped.

The food itself was great, we had 5 dishes and 2 rice between two of us and it was plentiful. We only managed 2 quick drinks before the end of the meal so the total bill was €29

It's definately worth a visit but only if you like hustle and bustle.

“Loved the food...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

We tried this restaurant the second night we were in Berlin. It was incredibly busy, but they were able to fit us in. The tapas style dining was fun and allowed us to try a lot of different thai dishes. Great experience!

“The best asian restaurant ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

Great service !!
We came 2 days ago at about 22:30 (rush hour) and the staff quickly arranged us a table and even replaced a dish that we have chosen by mistake.

Wonderful taste!!
It is a cuisin who combined asian food in small tapas dishes, so u can enjoy from a big varity of tastes and flavores.
I recommend also to try their unique drinks and the choclate musse desert.
;-)

“Yummy Asian food at an excellent price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

I decided to check this restaurant because I saw it was very popular on Foursquare and relatively close to the hotel we were staying. We went there without reservations and I think we got lucky. In 10 minutes we were sitting on a table on the outside balcony but the place was packed!

We ordered several €3 bowls to share and they were all supper yummy. We almost went for a second round but decided to try their desserts instead (I think the dessert I had was called Pirates of the Caribbean a chocolate mousse with passion fruit, I really recommend it).

It was the best and least expensive meal we had in Berlin. The atmosphere of the place is also super cool. Service was okay but none of the restaurants in Berlin impressed me by their service.

I would definitely go back to eat here again.
