“"Cheap" Lunch for Lucerne”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

My wife and I had nearly given up in finding a restaurant where we could have a reasonably priced lunch. We were surprised by the high prices in Switzerland compared to what we had experienced in Italy and France during the first month of our vacation. We finally found this restaurant where the prices were less high than the other places we had seen. Although the food was good, the portions were not too large and we ate a lot o rice to fill ourselves.

“Good (but not mind blowing) Chinese”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

Beggars can't be choosers, and in the Asian food desert of Luzern, this will do but you will pay for it. That being said, I would return for the duck pancakes, cos they were good and I don't know where else in Switzerland to get them, and also for perfect Asian vegetables. I would not return for the fried shredded beef, as the crunchy oily strands bore no resemblance to meat any more. The ambiance outside was pleasant to watch the world go by, and service was friendly with some inefficiencies due to language barriers (where neither German or English seemed to work). We are used to bill shock but 3 dishes and 2 drinks each for 142 francs is still rich, but if I need a duck fix, I will save up!

“Ok Chinese Restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

I had dinner at this restaurant while on a two-week business trip to Lucerne. The service was ok as was the food. I most enjoyed eating in the outdoor courtyard, it was very comfortable. I would probably give this restaurant another try if visiting Lucerne again in the future.

“So - So”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

Friendly service and nice ambience. But the food we ordered wasn't too well. But maybe we just ordered the wrong dishes. The waitress forgot one dish, so we had to wait quite some time.
Also on the bill was a mistake.
I'm living in Lucerne ... but wouldn't go there again.

“Good food - but beware of the heat!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

The enjoyed a nice outside dinner here. The food was quite good and reasonably priced for Lucerne. Beware of the heat markings - 2 chili peppers = very hot here!
