I'm from Asia myself, but I have say the Asian food in Switzerland is quite disappointing.
Understatement of the century I miss yum cha and chop chop noodles etc.... roast duck, rice and plum sauce.

There is an excellent chop-chop takeaway/cheap dinein at Brunngasse Bern in the old town map here.

It's just past the Restaurant Zimmerman (towards) the bear pits end of town / away from Bahnhof end. Two people can eat well for less than 40CHF with appetiser and a bottle of Coke. Owner is Chinese. Enjoy - report back.

Re: Asian grocery stores and restaurant in Bern?

There's also a Swiss Asia Market in Ostermundigen with a takeaway restaurant attached. If you take the nr. 10 bus to Ostermundigen and get off at Zollgasse, walk a little further in the same direction as the bus and you'll find it next to Denner. I think they have a "decent" range of Korean, Japanese, Chinese ingredients. I generally only go there for Korean ingredients as larger establishments like Ah Chau and TNT (both on the same bus 17 route to Köniz) have much more to offer. I often find that going to Loeb Lebensmittel is enough for me to get by once I have the pantry staples and basics.

When I REALLY crave specialty Japanese/Korean ingredients I take a deep breath and haul my ass all the way to Zurich for them.

I am myself however Malaysian and I make do with whatever Thai/Vietnamese/Indian stuff I can find here in Bern, plus care packages from home. Rarely eat out though... I find the quality of Asian cuisine in Bern not worth my francs. Apparently Zurich is a complete other matter... not that I've actually tried any of the restaurants there.

Oh wow, if you find bubble tea let me know!!
As far as I know, the only bubble tea place in Switzerland is in Lausanne.

It is called Kony, and is at 1, ave de Beaulieu. About three bus stops from the station.

Have you tried the chop-chop place in my last post, its cheap (CH standards) and good.

Re: Asian grocery stores and restaurant in Bern?

Hello

Does anyone came up with something new in Bern?

I'm swiss and I really like to cook asian food, especially thai. I also found Ah chau in Liebefeld and Asian star on Bubenbergplatz, but I'm still looking for other shops as I miss some things like green Papaya.

I'm so jealous, in Zürich, there are like 10 big asian stores.

Best wishes!

No chance - Yum Cha in Bern, not in a thousand years!

The only place that vaguely resembles Cantonese style food is the small chop chop restaurant in my earlier post, it is owned and operated by a native Hong Kong family. Go there.
