We have been a couple times to the restaurant, because it is one of the rather reasonable restaurants in Lausanne. Even though it is definitely over priced compared to Chinese restaurants in other cities....it is Switzerland and therefore kind of reasonable. The food during Chinese New Year is very recommendable, we had a meal and it was pretty Chinese. The service is nice and usually good. Only a few times and especially after they just opened its not yet perfect, but a warm up phase may be granted. Even though they are good I would not recommend the shrimp dumplings, because they are just frozen products from China which you would just know if you have lived there. Also the sweet-sour soup is not really recommenable.

Au Canard Pekinois is definitely the place to go to for good chinese food in Lausanne. Its a bit pricey but well worth it for the delicious dishes. The staff is also really friendly and go out of their way to accommodate you. Once, when my husband and I arrived almost at closing time, they were still extremely gracious and sat us down and didn't rush us through our meal. This is really rare to find in Switzerland from what I've seen. I'd highly recommend the basil chicken to anyone visiting the restaurant.
