“A Favorite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

My boyfriend and I are regulars here--we rarely go more than a week or so without coming in for a delicious healthy (and cheap) bowl of noodle soup. The atmosphere is very casual and often crowded, but they serve some of the best simple Asian food in Berlin and the prices are unbeatable. Handmade noodles, handmade dumplings, hearty broth, homemade fried chili oil to kick up the spice factor, lots of side dishes like homemade dim sum, perfectly cooked bok choy or the lightly sesame flavored seaweed salad (another favorite). They also have other mains besides the noodle soups but we've never been able to try them because we just can't go there and not get the soup. Great place!

“A dream for all Soup Noodle Lovers from East Asia ...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

Large steaming bowls of Soup Noodle (Don't even think of inverting this!) in all types of tastes and ingredients are served in this noon-to-midnight 7/7 noodle heaven while some of the Asian connoisseurs are already salivating. Even vegetarians get their version - and even the broth is vegetarian!
On almost 10 visits, ingredients have always been fresh, side dishes [dim-sum ("Maultaschen", in German) etc. abundant], soft drinks, Tsing-Tao and Bitburger beer available.
My Chinese and some Japanese friends tell me this restaurant should not be reviewed in TripAdvisor lest it becomes too full. I'm contributing my review anyway because one of the best Soup Noodle houses in Europe is served by the owner's husband, who was, for eight years, the maître d' in one of Berlin's 5-star hotels.
Bon appétit!

“The best and probably the only Taiwanese restaurant in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

Authentic Taiwanese noodles, just a little bit hot, as I love them, Huge portions and great quality for very little money. Let's say funny service, like they are trying to impersonate angry Chinese personnel from American comedy series, but with a fun personal note. Definitely recommend.

“very good little asian eatery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

We were in the area recently and stumbled into this place wandering around. Looked quite promising with asians eating there, prices looked pretty fair so we gave it a shot. And boy, we did not regret it. We had a nice Wan Tan soup, dim sums and duck with noodles. Everything was tasty, service was so friendly and efficient. We returned the next day which was our last day in Berlin and the owner did remember us and all :) I really recommend this place for noodle soups, dim sums, and noodle or rice foods.

“Taiwanese food in Berlin”

This cafe is full of Asian people which is always a good sign. It is not fancy but it's cheap, very tasty & the portions are generous. Great dumplings & dips. Taiwanese tea is very good. Large helpings of noodles & soups. Open late.
