Description: A warm and cosy contemporary Asian-style decor: high vaulted ceiling, large windows,decoratively revealed fragments of brickwork, laconic dark wood tables (the larger ones,of course, equipped with a revolving central part) sans tablecloths, a stylised stupa andsakura branches on one side of the room. Authentic chairs (imported from China),impressive Zen-style loos built in antique medieval vaults. The central niche with its twored and gold-painted trees is reminiscent of the splendid landscapes in Hero, the fi lm bythe Chinese director Zhang Yimou.

“Wonderful food and great service”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

If you want to get really good food and great service in cozy atmosphere in Tallinn old town, then this is the place to be. Be sure to oder duck salad and passion desert. All the other food is very good also. Bon a petit!

“Food is great but the service is below any tolerance.”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

After my second visit to Chedi my opinion has changed quite a bit. The food was still seriously delicious but the service was so lousy that I doubt I'll return or recommend the place to anyone. We had a reservation yet had to wait for 15 minutes in the hall until anyone came, the waiters were so busy they ignored our approaches (the place calls itself a fine dining restaurant and so far I've never had to wait in any other restaurant, not even for a minute).

When ordering food I chose an appetizer, main course and red wine for both of the dishes (both were duck). Then I receive the appetizer but not wine! I waited for a while and then asked the waitress to bring the wine, too. The wine bottle came but the waitress didn't let me taste it at all.... We drank the wines but no one came to offer any more wine.

The service is probably the most unprofessional ever. I've been to other fine dining restaurants in Tallinn where the service is seriously the best, this place IS NOT among them!

“It's all true, great food, good service, but overpriced.”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

This restaurant, for better or worse, is owned by the same group that owns Tchaikovsky, Bocca, O, and some other highend restaurants. So, as is their standard plan, it has great atmosphere(but is loud, even by American standards), great service, great food, and overpriced(3Euros for water that's free everywhere else). The chef is from Singapore and as residents of Tallinn it was excellent because unlike most ethnic restaurants in the Tallinn, the food was not "Estonianized" which makes the flavors that would be very good in other countries excellent and unique here.

The Crispy Duck Salad was excellent, and would highly reccomend it, and the dim sum very good, (but if you eat a lot of it like I do, isn't your standard flavors, so expect a little twist on it). We also ordered main courses, one was very good(Stir Fry Ribeye Beef) and one was good(Scallops) but, when we go back we will probably order different starters and skip the main course, as they were less expensive and seemed to be more unique and different.

If you travel a lot it is a very good restaurant, if you live in the Baltics, it is excellent. and either way would reccomend it, if price is not a big concern.

“overpriced but good food”
Reviewed December 7, 2012

The food was good. The restaurant looked good but did not feel the part. Service was poor with uneducated staff. Overall the price was not worth the experience.

Reviewed November 22, 2012

I visited Chedi during my last visit to Tallinn. The service was very good and the food was excellent, problably one of the best restaurants I have ever been to. The duck salad was delicious and the pork for main course was also very good.
