The food is fantastic and the staff excellent! I can highly recommend their duck dishes. The food is quite authentic and prices are reasonable. Nice for all kinds of diners!

I had the won ton soup and the Peking duck and shrimp combo. Both were excellent with great flavor and looked great, too.

Service was very friendly and prompt. I had a noodle dish and my wife had a curry. Both were excellent. Decent atmosphere. Very close to Radisson Blu and the "Fish Tank" :). Went there in 2009 and will return on my next visit to Berlin.

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
