Shanghai 3, across the road from the National hotel is about the most upmarket Chinese restaurant in Lucerne, a city not known for its abundant supply of Asian restaurant. The food is authentic, in as far as the owners are Vietnamese Chinese and hire a pretty good chef. They've put a lot of effort in the decor, stone lions at the entrance, waist high feng shui statues in the lobby and an impressive aquarium of exotic tropical fish.
The menu is fairly extensive but the a la carte items can be expensive - 36 to 42 Swiss francs for a dish. But for lunch on weekdays, they offer a special lunch menu, priced between 21 and 28 francs for a main course, starter (spring rolls or soup) and dessert (fruit salad or ice cream). Still a bit more expensive than in neighbouring Germany where lunch specials typically cost less than 20 Euros, but this is no greasy spoon Chinese. Unless it is a really special occasion and there is a group of friends to go with, I would not go there for dinner because for the price, there are better places in town. But for the lunch special, for the ambience and the quality of food, Shanghai 3 is a good bet
