Crispy duck was good, but other food (pho, tofu) were too salty to my liking. Waitress seems to be overwhelmed, hence it took a while to get her attention to place order . She also demanded 10% service charge for her tips , which we...More

We visited on a cooler May evening but sat outside nonetheless. It was quite nice and the blankets provided the extra warmth necessary. The drinks were good, the looked Japanese food great, and the sushi even better. My son had the crispy duck which was...More

My husband and I ate there after the aquarium visit and it was really good. He wanted to go back there for dinner, but I said we should try something different as we're only in Berlin for a couple of days. Excellent tofu stir fry!

We went to Berlin for a day trip. Before heading back to our hotel in Hamburg, we looked for a nice restaurant serving Asian dishes for dinner. My husband and I are both Asians, and after trying the local foods wherever we travel, we would...More

Busy when we arrived but only one waiter. After 20 mins we had no food. After 40 still no food. Finally admitted they forgot to put order through after two reminders from us. No apology. We left. Shame as food looked lovely.

The restaurant was not particularly busy when we visited. It took 15 minutes before we eventually asked someone to come and serve us (we should have walked then!). Although the waiter was perfectly pleasant, my husband had his food and had finished before I received...More

It's a good place to get decent amounts of tasty Asian food and to relax after a museum visit. Service could be a bit faster, but is very friendly. And it's fully wheelchair-accessible. The home made teas are excellent.

We found this restaurant by chance, and we were delighted with the food. We had red curry prawns, crispy duck and mango smoothies. The place is a combo between Vietnamese and Japanese sushi-style, so it is kind of Asian fusion. We liked it so much...More

The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights
like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum
Island. The central location makes this one of the
city's most expensive places to live. It is here the
oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence
of some significant transformations, as well. The
gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets
between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given
