“Good food, terrible service”
Reviewed 28 February 2012

This restaurant is run / owned by Asian people and it shows. The food is very good but in good tradition they try to safe money on hiring the absolute minimum staff possible. The result is 30min wait for drinks, no attention to detail, constant repeat of the question if we´ve received everything we ordered and a long wait for the bill.

They said it was only this bad this evening so we will try it one more time, hopefully the impression next time is better.

“My favorite restaurant in Bonn”
Reviewed 31 October 2011

The ideas in his chef's surprise menu are excellent. In particular, the cross-over components of the dishes with Chinese and Italian dishes are a delight

“perfect place for lunch in modern style”
Reviewed 24 January 2011

Had a lunch with my best friend from Bonn in this trendy restaurant. Even it was almost full during the lunch, we had a quite table in the dinning room. They offer many kinds of fresh salads with perfect sause. Hope that I will visit this great restaurant in summer and have a glass of their quality wines on the terrace.

“Pleasant atmosphere”
Reviewed 18 August 2010

I visited this restaurant for lunch with a friend who is a regular guest here. Although the place was packed with a lot of people from the surrounding offices, the service was good. We were not hurried in any way, and took our time reading the interesting menu with its variety of fusion dishes. I had a nicely presented salad which was very crisp and fresh with a delicious sauce. The wine list was good, we had a glass of open wine which was not overpriced. The restaurant stays open late in the evening and generally seems to be quite busy. The atmosphere was friendly and cheerful, the decor modern. In summer they have tables outside on the terrace.

“Cool Fusion”
Reviewed 8 August 2009

A great modern fusion menu that caters well for vegetarians, fish eaters and carnivores alike. (The Malaysian tofu curry is worth having as respite from German meat-based cuisine even if you're a carnivore.) Try the 5 course surprise menu. Pineapple carpaccio to die for. Great cocktails (but you may die waiting for them to arrive). Good local red Spaetburgunder (Pinot Noir). Terrace for hot weather. Book on a Friday or Saturday (when the locals come, and there's live music.)
