I stopped by with a friend to have a quick dinner, hoping that food quality could be over the average of nearby similar places. We were absolutely wrong. The cheap food isn't fresh at all. It's overcooked and overheated in those display counters. Plus, it is really low quality. My pechinese soup seemed glue. My friend's noodles were glue as... More

If you need to eat something (not the main meal of the day), don't want to spend much and wish to sit a bit... then China Express is good for you. The quality of food is medium, rather industrial actually, but the place is cosy and rather central. Good prices. Popular

It's very cheap for sure, you can have a lot of different dishes from starter to main dishes, or even a all you can eat buffet. But the quality is not that great, and the vegetables were barely unfrozen...very wet...Too bad

I was hungry at the end of an afternoon's sight-seeing in Munich so popped into China Express. I steered clear of the all-you-can-eat buffet (…are these cheap buffets ever any good?) and opted for one of the set meal deals - soup, main dish (fried noodles and chicken) and a nice pot of jasmine tea for less than €6. Quick,... More

Great collection of Asian food for budget seekers. Nice Asian environment and tasty food and good budget offers for both working days and weekends.

The place was clean and the food was ok. We didn't choose the buffet but ordered from the menu instead. The food is very cheap so you can't expect anything special.

Its cheap and that is what enticed us in but there turned out to be a reason as to why it was so cheap. There was very little selection here. What there was is generic greasy chinese food. I did feel that I could cook better at home. Although I did find it funny when someone loaded their plate with... More

My mom and I were trying to find a place to eat and I figured we'd give this place a try. My mom had the Pho Ho Tieu and I had the Bun Bo Hue. The portions are similar to what we get in the states and the flavors of both soups were delicious and the noodles and meat were... More

This eatery is not bad to have a quick bite in the middle of strolling Munich city center. That was what I did. Price is quite reasonable too.
