Very nice restaurant. Cosy ambiance, very good food. We had a menu it was wonderful. The only problem was that we had to learn how to use the sticks 😀. But hopefully they gave us knife and fork. Book first and be punctual because they have 2 service one begging at 19, and the other at 21h if you are... More

We turned up to the fully booked restaurant without reservation so we ordered some food to go. the lady who took our order was very impatient with us (for no reason) and felt like she didnt want us in the restaurant at all. She even gave us three pairs of chopsticks when she knew we had four people. the portions... More

Dear dumbdumbgoldfishie, our business is not ment to be a takeawayplace in the first place. If time allows it, we do offer that service. As you mentioned yourself, we were fully booked, so that might have been the reason for not being very patient - sorry for that. The food is the same quality and size we serve inside the... More

Booked here for New Year's Day and had a great meal. One of our party was vegetarian, but this posed no problems. We ordered a mix of veg and meat dishes and shared around. Best dish for me was crispy duck in cep sauce, absolutely packed with flavour. Quantities served were generous, and a good selection of wine is on... More

This is my favourite restaurant in Zermatt, the food here always tastes great. The staff are very pleasant and on my last occasion I visited, the Polish lady that works there went above and beyond her call of duty to ensure that everything was superb. Very well priced restaurant that I would recommend and will visit again.

Conveniently located near town center. The menu has a variety of options, food was very good and great atmosphere. We definitely appreciated the change of pace on the food. We tried the pork, chicken and beef and loved them all. Spice levels for every palette. Definitely recommend a visit.

This is quite simply, great Chinese. And the only Chinese in Zermatt! Once you've indulged in all things Swiss/German/Italian and you're searching for other flavours... China Garden is the place. We are big Chinese fans, and after some pretty hit/miss places in Paris before heading to Zermatt for some snowboarding, it was great to get some fantastic, authentic Chinese food... More

I loved this restaurant. Anyone looking for Peking Duck or other Anglicised culinary cliche, or the gloopy sauces in which some British deep fried takeaway food swims, will be dissapointed. The chicken I ordered was fresh, with light and appropriately delicate flavours. Noodles held sesame flavours. Asparagus and cashews were delicious and expertly cooked. Service was efficient but discreet. I... More

Nice restaurant decor and setting but the food isn't great. The beef in oyster sauce is particularly awful. Wouldn't go back.

We ordered crispy duck in spicy sauce and mapo tofu. The duck was very crispy though I can't find it spicy. The mapo tofu was great as well.

Dear Nattinee P, thank you for your nice critic... Spicy does not mean the same for everybody....so we have to keep it eatable spicy for most of the people... If you asked, we would have made a more spicy sauce especially for you though... More

Sorry for your disappointment... yes, if not everybody on the table is having another drink, we will charge for a jug of tap water (1 litre) 5 sfr. Actually most of the restaurants in Zermatt will charge you or don't even serve it. In terms of our prices, I can assure you, that between all the asian restaurants in Zermatt... More
