“Excellent food and ambiance. A must to visit.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

Last week we were in Lucerne. We were already 10 days away from our homeland Indonesia and we all were craving to death for some asian food. After circling the area, we found this beautiful and great restaurant just right under our Astoria Hotel. We ordered 4 dishes (the ribs, the fried rice, the tamarind duck and the chicken vegetables). The food were fantastic, the taste were close to the real one and Yes! we adored the ribs until the last bite. Compliment to the Chef!

“average food, great ambiance”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

We love Asian food and reading about this restaurant on tripadvisor it was the obvious choice for our first dinner in Lucerne. The ambiance is great so is the service. The food though was below expectations. We ordered the calamari with wasabi mayonnaise and there was no trace of wasabi or any Asian flavor. The Vietnamese soup was fairly good but the ribs really mediocre with a lot of sauce but not really marinated in the sauce (I think that s the proper way to do it).it s not that it was bad but I don't believe it deserves to be #1 in luzerne.

“great restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

My girlfriend and I booked a table on the website the day before, and everything went smooth. We were very surprised first, because the restaurant is kind of hidden in the Astoria hotel. As soon as we entered the the atmosphere felt very comfortable.
The service was excellent and so was the food. The prices were not too high on a "swiss basis". I will definitely come back !
