Description: Restaurant Waipo on Drottninggatan in the heart of Stockholm offers an extremely affordable Chinese fine dining. We serve authentic flavored Chinese cuisine with an international touch. In China a restaurant visit is a social event – you meet many others, eat different dishes and remain for a long time. We want to show our guests what social dining can be like. Our dishes are served in tapas format to make it easier for two people to share the food and dine more socially. Waipo (waeipo) means grandmother in Chinese, which fits very well with our concept. It should feel like coming home to grandma at the family dinner. Restaurant Waipo is listed in the food guide Sweden’s Best Tables and was named Sweden’s best Chinese restaurant at the Asian Curry Awards in 2013.

“Tasty asian food”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

Waipo is basically the high end offering of Pong and the food is much better. They do now offer a buffé for lunch. Not being a "buffé-lover" I would recommend ordering dishes instead as they are very tasty.

“Super pleased”
Reviewed July 23, 2014

Me and my wife had the tasting menu. 8 different courses + a choice of free dessert. The best part was the clam and the dumplings and the weakest part of the menu was the chicken. However I am very happy with my experience at the restaurant as the food actually tasted the way asian food is supposed to taste.

“Great food, problematic service”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

I've been to Waipo several times because of the food, but every time except the last one there has been problem with the service. Orders getting mixed up and the worst one was when they forgot about us until we had to remind them. They offered us free coffee as compensation, but since neither of us there drinks coffee we didn't get any compensation at all.

Go there for the excellent food, but be prepared for bad service.

“Chinese food Tapas style”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

Finding a good restaurant which is reasonably priced in a tourist area is quite rare. Waipo which is situated in one of the main tourist street (Drottninggatan) is certainly one of them. I visited this restaurant on a Saturday evening and it was very full. My impressions:

Good:
- Excellent Chinese food served tapas style so you can try out several different. Tried several and all of them were great but special mention to Jin Si Xia (Giant prawns served wrapped in Sweet potato chips), Waipo Kao Rou (Pork) and Piao Xian Ya (Crispy fried duck).
- The Chinese beer (Beijing Gold) I tried was really nice.
- Service was good and flowed well.
- Restaurant was nicely done and clean.
- Reasonably priced and that in Stockholm is always a plus.

Not so good:
- There was a table for 4 seated quite close to the swinging toliet door and not very practical.

I know how difficult it is as a tourist to find a restaurant that is reasonable in price and offers great food in tourist areas. I can strongly recommend this restaurant.

“Great eatery at a touristy street”
Reviewed February 21, 2014

Lunch menu at 95 SEK was a decent catch. They have just one vegetarian choice in their lunch menu but they offered to make vegetarian dumplings. It was almost 2 pm so only 2-3 tables were occupied. There was a small buffet of salad included in the menu. This was amazingly delicious ; consisting of glass noodles, green beans and green salad with dressings and bread rolls. Dumplings were very fresh but a bit overcooked. In Stockholm, getting water on the table is quite the norm. The place has a good atmosphere, decently decorated and with a hygienic bathroom.
