Are strangers welcome? I am interested in meeting with fellow English speakers.

You're only a stranger the first few minutes.

Of course! The aim of the dinner club is to welcome newcomers to Bern! Just sign up and turn up on Wednesday.

One more call for the Asian dinner date Tuesday evening. This is one of the best Asian restaurants in Bern, the Thai ambassador eats here.

Re: Bern dinner club, Chinese at the Boky

I'll be there - just booked my train tickets; locked in, because they are both tariffs degriffes.

The train pulls in at 18h56. Boky doesn't appear to be far from the station at all, but apologies in advance if I amble in late.

This will be interesting. I haven't had a good Chinese in CH before (or at least one which I was happy to hand over the amount of money that I did).

Table reserved for 8 people, ask the waiter for the "English Club".

Re: Bern dinner club, Chinese at the Boky

Did you already set a time? Seems like it might be around 7 PM, but I'm still not sure. Anyway, I'm within walking distance so it's not too important to me.

Bern station has 2 entrances. When you get off the train, walk back along the platform, and then go up the steps or escalator. Then walk along the top and past platform 1. Leave the station walking right and walk down the hill. At the cross roads you should see the Boky, it is along the street from Starbucks, Heilsarmee, Visana.

Re: Bern dinner club, Chinese at the Boky

Well had to happen some time to the best of us.

Traffic and miscellaneous public transport delays caused me to miss my train. It was a supersaver so I'm also out a wasted ticket.

Next service is 18h20. Best to start without me and I'll catch up.
