“Amazing duck dish”
Review of Jialu National

Jialu National
Ranked #23 of 450 Restaurants in Lucerne
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: US$16 - US$69
Description: There aren't any Chinese Restaurants like China Restaurant jialu anywhere else in town. We take great care in choosing only the best and if possible locally sourced products for our kitchen. We celebrate the authentic Northern and Sichuan cuisine of China. Our dishes are prepared with only natural and original ingredients and we refuse to use any msg or other food enhancers. Visit jialu and dive into a different world full of flavours and impressions like you would only find it in the Middle Kingdom itself. The restaurant's interior design was inspired by the traditional restaurants of Beijing as well as a modern touch as you would find it in Shanghai or Hong Kong. The restaurant itself is right at the lakeside and in summer has even sitting outside directly at the lake where you can marvel at the breathtaking scenery whilst enjoying a delicate meal.

Arrived just as it opened and managed to get a riverside table. We had 3 dishes for 2 adults & W children which was plenty. Kids loved the coca-cola chicken. The roasted duck was fantastic - although I thought it was a bit cheeky to have to pay extra for the pancakes, cucumber& sauces. Highly recommend a visit.

A perfect place to eat and watch the people around the river and the traffic on it.
This was by far the best Chinese meal that we had eaten for some years and cooked to perfection by the chefs.
It is not obvious at first as to how you access the restaurant from the street ; better to walk along the esplanade beside Haldenstrasse.
It was very busy when we visited and we had booked in case it was full ; probably a wise precaution.
We paid CHF 177 for dinner for two plus cocktails before and a good bottle of wine to go with the meal : not excessive by Luzern standards.
We would visit again if in the area.

One of the good chinees restaurant in Lucerne, must visit once if you are starving for chinees cusine. Undoubtedly Service was also good and specially there was an Indian girl who took care of us though it was busy.

I was for dinner with a friend and to avoid a surprising rain shower. Luckily we were placed at a window table and had a spectacular view on the lake lucerne and deep dark clouds outside in the sky.
We were warmly welcomed by the manager itself. Also the chinese waitress was very friendly with good service thinking.
Ordered a cola chicken. Served with steamed rice. The food was well presented in chinese style and ambiente. It was very tasty and before we finished, we decided to come back again for sure.

This was amazing, authentic Asain food in Lucerne. We sat outside, which was gorgeous with a lakeside view. My boyfriend and I split a crispy chicken, vegetable and rice entree and there was enough food for us both (given we weren't both super hungry). They were even accommodating and served spicy sauces on the side because I am sensitive to spice! The food was cooked to perfection - some of the best Asain chicken we've ever had. Great service, great food, and great location. Would 100% return when in Lucerne!
