“Excellent Sunday Brunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2009

Went there on the first Sunday of July 2008 for the roughguide recommended €8 Sunday Brunch (many Berlin restaurants/cafés offer Sunday brunch for around €10), we turned up as it opened and were one of only two tables at the time but that did not affect the attitude of the very sweet and attentive owner/waitress nor the quality of the food. It's a single choice (except for the main which has about four options, I plucked for sweet and sour fish) five course (some larger than others) menu, which indeed tastes more fresh than the stodgy Chinese most of us are used to. Even if one or two of the small introductory courses aren't to your taste, there should be enough that is to make Sunday brunch here more than satisfying.

Building on the theme of traditional Chinese fare, the chef tries to modernise the Middle Kingdom's cuisine by reducing the fat and adding som un-Chinese aromas. Chinese patrons have been missing some more MSG though
