For a city with no china town or sizeable Chinese Population it is always going to be a tough call to get decent Chinese food. However search no further than bang in the middle of the Reeperbahn. The first good sign is that Chinese people are also customers. Dont apply the same rule for where European people eat though! As with all authentic chinese Restaurants, there is basic simple decor.

Service is very fast. Smiling could be better but that is part of the authenticity.

The food is probably the best you will eat in any Chinese Restaurant in mainland Europe. A bold statement.

Try a few dim sums as starters . The thai octopus salad, fish with ginger and leak are fantastic. Keep it spicey and light then go and have fun on the famous Reeps until sunrise. Think small but vareity and dont go for one big plate with a mountain of bland food.

Oh and possible to get change out of 50 euros for two

Very clean and nice restaurant with delicious dishes. I have ordered Pekin soup, Vegetable Duplings and sweet and sour souce duck. It was melting in mouth. The service was pleasant and did not impose themselves on clients. I can truly recommend the restaurant and I am sure I will come back there when I am in Hamburg again.

They recognize me even though there are occasionally many months between visits, and the quality of the food always remains tops. This is REAL Chinese food, not peas and carrots spiced with soy sauce, and you'll always see Asians dining during your visit. The food is not really fancy, either, and neither are the prices. I LOVE the way they do the veggies, and will always return!

We visit Man Wah on most trips to Hamburg. The location aside the Reeperbahn is "cult", the ambience of the restaurant is practical and sober, the service is friendly and helpful. But the reason to come back always is the authenticity and the quality of the food. Man Wah represents the closest to Cantonese cooking you can get outside Hongkong. They offer dishes and ingredients not usually on the menu in "westernized" Chinese restaurants. Guests who look for the "real thing" or are just adventurous eaters will enjoy the choices. Try the dim sum and the steamed fish. Prices are ok.
