That is a specialty. I think those may have to be ordered 1 or 2 days in advance. At least that's how it was in popular restaurants in our Chinatowns.

Nope - walk in and order then enjoy - I told you this place rocks

Our guests can enjoy Peking Duck without ordering in advance or long waiting times.

The Stars, and strips, is also an American bar, with fantastic food, they do a fantastic starter plate with very good chips, and salsa nothing like you can buy in the coop, chicken wings, onion rings, pickles, and another dip

I make a very nice Pico de Gallo salsa. Perhaps I may have to bring my own?

Re: Chinese restaurants in Zurich

For great Chinese food , which is also cheap , we go across the border to Germany .... You can also get a cheap haircut and groceries at the same time .... The restaurant is called Restaurant Panda in Jestetten , Germany . Not very far from us in Kloten ( Actually on the way to Schaffhausen ) .... Every night , they do a Mongolian BBQ (all you can eat) for EUR 14.90 , including starter buffet and desert buffet . We go there every week .

Oh yes please we can sneak it in, and hide it under the table .

I love duck yummy yummy, we often go to the chinese restaurant in Austria at lunch time, they have a buffet all you can eat including salads, duck, sweet, and sour, chips, veg, chicken, and lots more, and also fruit cocktail for dessert, for 1 adult it costs 7.50 euro, and a child is 3.50 euro, and you can eat as much as you like

Re: Chinese restaurants in Zurich

For Malaysiab-Singaporean-Chinese, the restaurant Singapore isn't so bad and if you had a dish you really want, they'll usually make it for you.

Singapore
Badenerstrasse 530
8048 Zürich Kreis 9 (Altstetten)


It's right by one of the end stops for tram 2.

Decent malaysian/thai food can be found also at Tiffin's (near Bellevue) or at Lily's (Langstrasse), the price is even reasonable (quite rare here.....) and they have Tiger beer.

Re: Chinese restaurants in Zurich

No, I don't mind. But when I spoke to Anthony a while ago he said that they really didn't want anymore publicity.

They are at max capacity in their little place ... which is why I didn't want to make it search-able.


I know they're already featured in many places - but given that I've spoken to him about it, I feel I ought to respect his wishes.

Well like I said I haven't had it but my friend who recommended the place had it and says it is great and authentic.

We did have the peking duck, which consisted of a first course of very crispy duck skin served with soem yummy fresh stuff that you could roll in these awesome tortilla like very thin rice pan-cakes and dip in sauce - this alone basically filled me up - then they serve the duck meat in one of three styles as a second ... I am hungry just thinking of it...



Peking Duck in two courses 北京片皮鴨
(For 2 or more persons, prepared to order)

Our guests can enjoy Peking Duck without ordering in advance or long waiting times.
We prepare it daily and serve it – while supplies last.

Starter:

Crispy duck skin served with
pancakes, leeks, cucumbers and Soya bean sauce Main course:You may choose one of three varieties.
1. Duck with eight delicacies (hot and spicy)
2. Duck with pineapple (sweet-sour)
3. Duck with bean sprouts (light)
So has anyone been to Zen to get some dim sum? How was it?

Judging by this:

The Master Chef
Kin Chuen Li left his parents’ farm in the south of China at the age of 13 and began a career as cook in Hong Kong. At the age of twenty, he was already well known as the “King of Dim Sum” and much sought after by the very best restaurants. His career in Europe started at the well-known restaurant “Trois Bonheures” in Geneva. Further positions include the “Dragon City” and the “Oriental Pearl” in Zurich.

and my friend's recommendation it should be good. I believe they do dim sum brunches on Sundays. I have yet to go, because every time we make it out there we get the Peking duck - it is quite awesome....

Hi
Not yet, but we're planning to go for dim sum lunch this Sunday (15 June) and will let you know how we find it...

Re: Chinese restaurants in Zurich

Here is my feedback on dim sum lunch as Zen rstaurant in Adliwil. We went on on Sunday and for 4 people incl. child we ordered:

- Steamed prawn dumpling, Shanghai fried pork dumpling, steamed pork rice roll, 2 steamed BBQ pork buns, fried prawn wonton, vietnamese pring rolls, plate of noodles with beanspouts.

Was nice to have dim sum lunch for a change and the food was good (except for one dish -spring rolls which were very crunchy) but all in all the food was lacking a bit of sophistication. For this reason I wouldnt say the food was exceptional just a basic dium sum lunch. You get around 3 or 4 dumplings per order at Sfr12 per plate try it if you have a craving or just to compare but I've had better....

Mind if I ask what your bill totalled for 4+1 child?

You mean we'll have to bring our imagination? Or fall back plan on the duck?

Competition! This place needs competition.
