As we are staying just across the road, we thought we would give it a try although we are not great Chinese eaters. We picked the set menu for 26 Euro which provided a lovely selection with a solid hint of kick. Service was rapid and attentive enough for us.

I ordered spicy Sichuan boiled fish and paired it with medium dry, sweet Riesling. The pairing was superb. Sichuan boiled fish had quality ingredients - very good fish, fresh cabbage and brocolli. It was not too oily and was adequately spicy. However, it lacked the "umami" or "oomph" that other restaurants might have better offered. In fact, the dish itself... More

This place has some terrific authentic Chinese food. The soups are so tasty and the mains are to die for. The fried duck is one of my favorite dishes there and the kung pao chicken has very large pieces of chicken. We also got some fried wontons last time and were very good. The location is not any a very... More

My favourite Chinese Restaurant in Berlin and the best one I know out of China. What ever I ate, and I was there a couple of times, it was just delicious. They have a great selection of wine and got a price for their selection. Easy to get a place for two, but you need to take a reservation if... More

I have lived around the corner for 12 years and walked into the Hot Spot by accident, as the whole place looks like your regular Chinese joint, very unassuming. The service by the staff is fairly straightforward (except for those evenings, when you are being served personally by the owners, Mr. and Mrs. Wu), and the interior design is nothing... More

At the restaurant the food was average chinese food, as you can expect of at least in a place/price like this. So no bad word about food. But the service was quite awfull. All the time that we spend at the restaurant waitresses were rude. Just for example when we, at the end, pay our couple hundred pill: not a... More

Mr. Wu's cooking is legendary and rightly so. Try chairman Mao's favorit, red pork belly! The wine list is exceptional for a chinese restaurant, too. The service depends on who you get and how they feel, can be really bad... The interior is plain. Definitely an experience not to miss if great food is what you are looking for!

Disappointing chicken - both the mild with curry and pineapple (no taste of either) and the gong-bao, in which only a few flakes of chili were hot. Sweet-sour sauce ok, term also describes waitress. Pass it by, go truly Italian 500 m down the same road.

Full disclosure: I come from Singapore and I like my food really spicy. We arrived in Berlin on a Saturday evening and were craving Asian food. I had read about Hot Spot in a UK newspaper—the writer declared it authentic and super spicy and that sounded about right! We made reservations just in case. I'd read that it can get... More
