This busy crowded little restaurant in Lausanne offers substantial serves of the best of Chinese food. It really lets you enjoy home cooked spicy Shechuan food presented simply avoiding over presentation. Been there three times always busy a cacophany of conversation. Best to book but they always seem to cope with the crowd. Not the place to look in your... More

The food is terrific, the portions are the biggest I have ever seen in Switzerland, and it is really great value for money. The restaurant is very basic, chaotic and busy. You can sometimes wait even when you reserve. The weekends are crazy with people queuing outside to get in. The food is worth the wait though. The leftovers are... More

Please be hungry when you go there, as the portions are quite big and delicious. When a dish is considered spicy ... be aware, it is spicy. I love their Jasmine tee too.

Not a place to go for a romantic dinner but if you want good authentic Chinese food then this is the best in the area that we have found. The food isn't fancy either in style or presentation but generally it's simple tasty food at a reasonable price. One of our favorites.

I am so happy that I found this amazing restaurant in Lausanne. I love sechuan food and Chez Xu does not disappoint. Always cramped and noisy, but outstanding food at lowest prices I have seen in Switzerland. Will come back.

Looks like familial business. Staffs are not speaking very well french nor english but they understand the basics and are very nice. The seats are small and not so that confortable.

The taste is authentic, with big portions, and a small price. I come here every month or so and I have never found a better place for asian food in Lausanne. But remember that this place is really authentic, all the workers are asian and do not speak really well english nor french (although the menu is translated). The place... More

Been living in Lausanne for the past 8 years. This is by far the best Chinese food in town, both in terms of quality and quantity for money.

The dishes are considered authentic chinese cuisine and portions are generous for a restaurant located in Switzerland. Service is quick and staff are friendly. A must try for travellers who miss Chinese food. You will be satisfied.
