Adding to the list, why not try this Singapore Restaurant for dinner?
Because the thread is about authentic Chinese food?

Re: Authentic Chinese restaurant in Zurich?

As a person who comes from Hong Kong, I have tried all the mentioned ones (the ones still open) but none suits the title of authentic I am afraid...
I gave up hope and cook at home if I want authentic Chinese food, though not many ingredients can be bought here, the Asia shops have helped a lot already.

True, i don't think there's a market for an authentic Chinese restaurant. All the restaurants have adapted some local preferences to fit in better into their local markets and get more customers. Same reason why for example something simple like a Döner Kebab is different in almost every country.

In my home country they also are non-existing, i could get authentic if i asked for it at one restaurant for which we also maintained their installations and we've become friends over the years, so they'd be more than willing to take the extra effort, and serve us what they themselves would eat.

That's awesome!!

You know when I first came here, I was so surprised by how similar the settings of restaurants are: table clothes a must, thick napkins, candles, etc, whether in the traditional Swiss restaurants, Thai restaurants or other restaurants. To me this seems a bit boring as they lack of their local personalities, not to mention the authenticities of food. I really hope to see more restaurants could stand their ground (hire people from their countries maybe?) and cook more decent authentic food. At the same time I too hope more locals (they are the majority here after all!) could open up and accept the way what the dishes should be.

I thought your home country is the Netherlands... there is very authentic Chinese food in every major city, especially the Randstadt. We (my Chinese wife and I) just had some Dim Sum in Den Haag that's just as in HK...
