“Best Chinese restaurant in Ljubljana”
Reviewed December 13, 2013

The best Chinese restaurant in Ljubljana. One thing you should definitely try - duck in a lemon sauce (very different from "lemon sauces" in other Chinese restaurants" - delicious).

“More authentic than any other "kitajska" in Slovenia”
Reviewed May 30, 2012

At last the place which serves different type of "European Chinese" in Slovenia. "Ants climbing up the tree", which seems to be mandatory for Chinese restaurants in Slovenia is also on the menu, but other than that one can find some variety including numerous dumplings (steamed, fried). Good "butterflied shrimps with garlic". Nice garden. Worth a trip to the city outskirts if you want it Chinese.

“The only authentic Chinese restaurant in Slovenia”
Reviewed February 27, 2012

Kitajski vrt is a large Chinese restaurant in Dravlje, close to the bowling centre.

I am a huge fan of Asian food and I must say that Kitajski vrt is probably the only Slovenian restaurant with authentic Chinese food.

I usually start with dim-sums. Their eggplants filled with shrimps in black bean sauce are superb. Also, the pot-stickers (guo tie) and the steamed dumplings are fantastic.

Their version of gun bao chicken is certainly the best I've ever eaten anywhere in the world (the only good approximation is my home-made version following Fuchsia Dunlop's recipe) . I also adore their duck with two tastes and the beef in pepper sauce.

Their steamed buns filled with red bean paste covered with cocoa-nut flour are delicious.

I also tried their Beijing duck menu and liked it a lot - you do have to order the duck at least two days in advance. Also, even four healthy man are usually not able to cope with the huge amounts of food.

If you are lucky, you will enjoy Sabina's service. She's one of the kindest and most professional waiters I have ever met. Their Chinese waiters are very attentive, however, they often cause a complete chaos due to their poor knowledge of Slovene language.

Their prices are reasonable and the restaurant is very clean (including the toilets).
