Description: Good day, land of the rising sun! But with atypical furnishings and without the classic China chic. Many find the blue covered chairs behind glass fronts subtly elegant. Unity during Chinese dining: Everything is very fresh. The staff make a great effort with the language. An 'l' sometimes slips out instead of an 'r'. It's rather sweet! The team is very fast and attentive. This boasts an amazing wine selection for an Asian restaurant - guests can choose from 30 eastern and western wines. A positive overall impression.

Staff was friendly. Not the kind of Chinese Dim Sum restaurant we were looking for as the only Dim sum they serve was dumpling. The roast duck we ordered was actually deep fried rather than the Chinese type roast as stated on menu. Dishes were a bit salty and one can tell that the effort was put more on the presentation than the taste of the food itself.

Sweet and sour soup was okay though not fantastic. The good thing is the portion perhaps. But that's normally the case for most Chinese restaurant in Europe.

Suitable for biz lunch as their biz lunch menu which we took would be better only if we were there on business.

The interieur us nor me typical Chinese, very pragmatic but ok. The food is very good and the portions are very big. You easily can share the main dish if you habe a starter. Definitely a place to eat very well.

We attended a family function here. The food was plentiful and delicious. Service good too. I would most certainly go back again.

We actually got to "Ni Hao" by accident. We wanted to try another Chinese restaurant, but the taxy driver convinced us that Ni Hao is the one to check out. We weren't disappointed. We ordered a Tasting menu for two, which included cold appetizers (mostly vegtables), fantastic, mouth watering Dim Sum, 4 main dishes (which were at the same time familiar but with exotic twists). A wonderful fried vegtables dish and an excellent Peking style duck (alas, sans pancakes) were special highlights. In the end, we got a clear chicken and vegtable soup, which was good but I have to confess felt wierd to eat that late at the meal. The service was a little slow, but mostly helpful. Beware some very spicy dishes, and a weak desert menu. Ultimately, an unusual, tasty, and reasonably priced experience.
