Next door to the Ritz Carlton, where we were staying, in Potsdamer Platz, but with a 3 year old we wanted somewhere not too formal and child friendly and this restaurant met those criteria and so we visited it twice during our 4-day break in Berlin.

I must say it wasn't the best Asian food we've had, but it was good and the service was very quick. Cocktails were good. Our daughter loved the kiddy box with the toys in it, and the childrens portions were very generous in size and had plenty of vegetables in them (first day we had a noodle one, and next day a rice one).

First visit we just wanted a quick supper, and so just had a main course for 2 adults, a kiddy box and 3 drinks and it came to about 30 Euros. Then next day, we were hungrier so had a mixed platter starter and cocktails in addition to 2 main courses and a kiddy box and bill was about 60 Euros.

Restaurant was very clean - and toilets were clean too (which I think is a good sign that they take care to make sure all areas are clean).

Staff on both visits were extremely helpful and courteous and spoke English well.

So for convenience of the location, cleanness, value and, most importantly, the quality of the food, we give it the 5 star rating.

was looking for some high quality asian fusion but this only was ok. Will do if you have a craving for curry but the sauces were unfortunately soupy and thick.

Let's face it. German menu is awfully heavy. This is a good choice if visiting the museums and heading somewhere. Close to U-bahn and major bus stops. Food is tasty, reasonable prices. A good choice for the Sony Center eateries. I had wok with tofu, duck breast, pak choi, noodles and a class of wine. Ended up around 12 euros. Ritz-Carlton next door might fool you. Take a look at the prices, it is a good bargain, if you like veggie style.

COA stands for Cuisine of Asia, but to cut to the chase, the dishes we ordered unfortunately have not much of an Asian taste that I know of, whatsoever. I ordered, for appetizer, a "mixed dim sum" dish, with 4 pieces of dim sum, one "prawn package", one "pork & prawn meeting", one "sweet & creamy fusion", and one "basil the chicken" (for 4 euros - one euro for each of the above), one "Hanoi's Beef Please" (for 9.90 euros), and my wife ordered a "japan's chicken teriyaki" (for 8.50 euros). The dim sum, basically fried and steamed dumplings, are tasteless. The "hanoi's beef please", basically the famous Vietnamese "Pho" (beef or chicken noodle soup), tastes like nothing I have ever tried in my life! It's definitely not the Pho I tried countless times in Vietnam, in California, in Houston, Texas, or in, you name it ... The best dish of the three we tried, which saved our lunch, is the chicken teriyaki, if you can call it "chicken teriyaki". Sorry if I sound so far a little harsh but to sell those dishes and call them Asian is like selling Moroccan couscous and call it Chinese fried rice!? It's not whether it's good or bad, because at the end the day, taste is in the tongue of the beholder, but it is about the authenticity for the taste of the dish itself. To sum up, with regard to the food from COA, if you ever tried any so called Asian food (or Vietnamese Pho or Chinese dim sum for that matter) in your life, then the dishes mentioned above could be considered as "eatable", but if you have tried, and appreciated the taste of, Asian food almost anywhere else in the world, then you would go: "wow, what is this!?".
COA has nice decor and atmosphere. It looks elegant and clean, and its staff is nice and courteous. Unfortunately, their food is not at par at all with their service. I'd not recommend COA as an Asian food stop.
