Description: Le Tse-Fung restaurant transports you to the other side of the world: Traditional Chinese and Asian cuisine, crispy duck, dim sum... Red velvet, black lacquer and silk decor take you at once to a Shanghai palace in the 30's. Under delicately wrought lanterns, the most divine treasures of Chinese cuisine... With the help of a predominantly Asian kitchen staff, the Tse Fung's cuisine perpetuates the noble art of authentic Chinese and Asian gastronomy, offered between Lake Leman and the Mont-Blanc. Steamed specialties with the famous dim sum, grand classics made of fish, sea food or poultry... The marriage of textures and the fragrance of rare spices offer amazing culinary experiences, to be tasted in the quiet peace of private rooms or on the terrace, with a view over the lake and the mountains. Le Tsé Fung got awarded 1 Michelin Star in 2016.

We ordered one of the fixed meals. Each course was exquisite but the overall meal was extremely expensive for Chinese. We walked in with no reservation but on the early side a bit before 8pm and even though they were fully booked on a Friday night they seated us with the pitch that after nine would be difficult. They brought out our courses a bit faster then usual but the food was excellent. Awfully expensive even for Geneve.

We had looked in the day before and opted instead for Floor Two (don't bother) across the street and decided to give it a try. We did not have a reservation, but were welcomed and given a table by the window. The view is pleasant, and Jet d' eau is certainly the focal point, but the second floor perspective adds nothing you can't see walking along the street.

The room was lively, with most tables occupied. Keep in mind that Geneva is a city of business travel, and it was clear the two couples at the next table were couples only because the men had contracted the women for the evening.

The three of us shared two appetizers and each of us had a main dish. Service was prompt. The food was quite good, but no better than you would expect at any Chinese restaurant that is not a buffet and caters to a sit down clientele.

The only truly outstanding thing about the whole experience was the bill. A similar dining experience is the US, with a modestly priced bottle of wine, would run in the neighborhood of $80 to $100. When the check was presented it came to $300, an outrageous sum for an average meal.

The unsettling thing is that this is not uncommon. Nice restaurants in Geneva are heavily patronized by businessmen and government employees on expense accounts. The restaurants are fully aware of this and take every advantage.

So, the bottom line is that if you choose to go, you can expect to have a fine time. You will enjoy the food, the service, and the view, as long as you are spending someone else's money.

Its a really one of the best Chinese restraunts in Switzerland. Must to gone. Kitchen is fantastic! But service is not so good. We have ordered a bottle of vine. The waiter poured the wine in 3 glasses. In 30 min I asked waiter to serve us with the wine but he told that the wine is finished... But then he "found" our bottle...

Good food, formal setting and service. La reserve hotel and restaurants is a top-end geneva experience if you feel like spending some money. One of the best quality chinese restaurants in Geneva area, if not the best, but not very "chinese"
