Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Fresh ingredients, good variety and efficient service (we had to wait a little because it was so busy). We tried various dim sum to start and then shared a few dishes, no one to give any negative comment on: the kung pao chicken was spiced...just well, the peking duck was how it should be and the beef in oyster sauce on green vegetables very juicy. Every fried rice was freshly made. Wonderful!More

Stopped for lunch on our way back into the old town from Bratislava castle. The exterior is a bit tired and uninspiring but inside it is very chic and smart. We had the lunch special for €9.90, Kung Bao chicken for me, beef with chilli...and green beans for my other half. Lunch included a generous bowl of soup, hot and sour for me, chicken for hubby, both fresh and delicious. Main dishes were served with rice and a refreshing salad of kimchi and radish. Portions were very generous and delicious. Service was friendly and attentive. A brilliant deal and a nice change from the heartier Slovak cuisine which we predominantly ate during our Bratislava break.More

Lovely atmosphere. Wine options good for a Chinese restaurant-we shared a bottle f the Dunaj which at 23 euro a bottle was resonable, for a Christmas treat. We had the satay chicken and tempura prawns to start. The tempura was fantastic, crispy and perfectly coked....The satay was a disappointment-not a peanut in sight. The sauce, served cold on the side, was more of a weird mustard concoction. But edible. For main we had the peking duck. It was perfect, plenty of hoisin sauce and hte pancakes were soft and delicious. Would have liked a bit more cucumber and spring onion but overall it was fantastic. Probably the best duck I have ever had. Service was quiet and non-invasive. It got pretty full quickly and the staff managed well. Could have checked that the mea was OK for us but given the amount of staff to customers, it was no big deal that they didn't. Besides, it was great. Will definitely visit again!More

Are here yesterday with a friend. Saw some good reviews about the restaurant so we decided to eat here. Unfortunately it took very long for the staff to bring our food and I guess we were not the only one at least waiting for half...an hour. The food was average and I didn’t felt really well after dinner. I don’t think I will recommend this restaurant..More

Simply put: when it comes to Asian food in Bratislava, currently Jasmin is the best restaurant in town. The restaurant is in the city centre, nested in the area of the city below the castle where the old Jewish getto was. Easily reachable by foot,...it gets really difficult to get there by car. The place: the restaurant is an institution in the city, being open since the ’90. It undertook a complete renovation several years ago together with the implementation of a new concept of Asian food (mostly Chinese cuisine). The renovation was a great success, mixing industrial interior design with clear elements recalling the Asian origins and theme of the place. The result is a cosy and warm place where the guests feel welcome and comfortable. The restaurant also have an outside space (quite a large terrace), that would be perfect if it wasn’t facing one of the main traffic artery of the city centre, making it not ideal. The service: the service is always nice and professional. Sometimes it can be a bit slow (when the place is packed), but the staff is smiling and great. The food: the restaurant offers a menu predominantly Chinese with some Vietnamese elements and more recently some Japanese dishes (among all a good sushi for the standards of the city). The Chinese food is overall fantastic. It’s good, but also quite authentic. Portions are always more than fair. A special mention goes to the Dim Sum that is really good. The only downside is that sometimes the food lacks consistency. Not in terms of quality, but simply in terms of taste, like if they were following different receipes depending on the day. Sushi is good but not superlative (still have to find a superlative one in Bratislava). Prices went up after the Covid shut down, noticeably (in the order of 20% I would say), but is still in an acceptable range of price considering quality and quantity of the dishes. Conclusions: I have been to the restaurant many times and tried half the menu. Dim Sum is really good. Hot plate dishes are great. Sushi is good. I’m waiting for a cold winter night to try the hot pot. Jasmin is a restaurant where I go regularly and always with great pleasure.More

The red chill oil food with chicken/beef is always good, others are just soso. The quality of the food varies in different days.

Restaurant is ideal for tourists visiting castle hill. However, tourists may prefer other than Chinese cuisine while in Slovakia. But anyway, they offer good Chinese cuisine of Sichuan style. Pros: - genuine Chinese foods without any compromises - focus on details in service - very...experienced staff Cons: - difficult parkingMore
