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.

“Simply perfect!”
Reviewed March 27, 2014

One of the reason why I decided to have a dinner in Chedi was due to the fact that person with whom I was, had a birthday that day. I don't have any bad things to say about this restaurant. Everything was beyond great. Modern and classic interior, cozy atmosphere, amazing food, professional yet friendly service and even better company with whom to enjoy it.

We ordered Dim Sum platter with prawn-bamboo and prawn-scallop filling, crispy duck salad with pomelo pine nuts and shallot, grilled salmon in Chef's special sauce and of course chocolate souffle with vanilla ice-cream. And oh my gosh how tasteful everything was. Portions were quite big and unfortunately we did not manage to eat all of it. Food was beyond great and tasteful. Best part was when lovely waiter brought dessert with one candle. Simplicity rocks.

Overall I definitely recommend that place, not just because of the food but because of atmosphere and service as well. I really do not remember the name of that waiter but she was simply professional and very friends. Many thanks and keep up the good work.

“Rude waiter but heavenly food”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

Our crew is familiar with Finnish Gaijing and Farang, so we are eager to try what Asian cuisine Chedi can offer.

We had a very impatient waiter who disappeared on us (came to take our order, got frustrated by 4 questions including what he would recommend and left abruptly without asking what we want for drinks). Even risking the wrath of the waiter (and whatever revenge they might come up in the kitchen), we asked him why didn't he take our order, to which he said that he doesn't have time, he has many customers, can't we see (so clearly it is our fault).

So we just ordered using our imagination and waited 30 minutes for the food.
2 different dim sum platters, fried soft shell crab, crispy duck salad, jasmine tea smoked pork ribs, seared Atlantic scallops, honey pork with sesame.

Dim sum with prawn was heavenly, plump and juicy prawns wrapped in translucent pockets, taking us back to the better dim sum restaurants in Hong Kong. Fried soft shell crab were addictively tasty, crispy duck salad was perfect combination of tiny bits of crunchy salad and deep fried duck. Pork ribs were tender, honey pork was just like from Hong Kong as well, only Atlantic scallops were lacking the wow factor.

Our waiter warmed up to us after seeing our excitement (and placing more orders and drinks). He recommended golden friend squid, but we were too full - and we wanted those crabs- so we must try that next time and study the menu before coming to the restaurant.

The restaurant was half empty when we came arond 20:00 and filled up as we were there.

“Best restaurant in Tallin”
Reviewed February 23, 2014

One of the best meals we've had in a long time. Perfect Asian fusion, service more than excellent, all the dishes we tried were 100 %. It was truly a pleasant surprise.
