Ask the waiter for the Chinese menu, and order lambs ribs with glass noodles. The portion is huge, it's enough for 2. The homemade noodle is sublime. You can also ask the waiter for a recommendation from the list of the Chinese menu. Friendly staff, clean restaurant, delicious, authentic Chinese food, with great price. Highly recommended.

The food wasn't not very tasty for Chinese, it reminds me the european flavor. Not a lot of dishes. Modest atmosphere.

We ordered chicken with peanut sauce for starters, and chicken and prawn sizzlers for mains (with rice and noodles respectively). Food was good, I'd say 7.5/10. My partner often visits it for lunch and finds the mittag menu great value for money. We arrived at 10PM, and the service for compromised. We weren't attended to as would have been preferred...

It's definitely the best one we had in Cologne. The Peking duck and noodles is really recommendable. Very fresh food, modern decorations and good location.

I was in town at an exhibition and ate here 2 nights, the food was great, I can recommend the Beijing Duck. On the first night there was a bus full of Chinese people eating in the restaurant so I guessed I was in the right place.

I came by at the end of a long day traveling to my hotel in Media Park - thanks for Tripadvisor's reviews pointing me to LeiLei. The duck wrapped in dough s a starter was perfect, followed by 'Roter Drache' with noodles. Red Dragon isa chicken with vegetables and spicy sauce - very good. Staff was friendly, spoke good English.... More

The restaurant is very nice but lacks a bit of atmosphere. Service was efficient and the level of English was extremely good. We enjoyed all the dishes, especially the spinach starter...just beware of hidden spicy peppers.

This place has two menus. One in German and one in Chinese. The chinese menu has dishes, the German one does not list. So either bring somebody able to speak Mandarin, or ask for the following: pancakes filled with duck as an appetizer, spicy potatoes, and one of the noodle dishes. The chef makes his own noodles fresh in the... More

Food was very good and the service was friendly and attentive. The waiter spoke English and was happy to help an American who knows no German.
