The waiters were friendly, although it took a while with bringing the order.
The food was ok, but nothing very special regarding the price niveau!
I liked the sauces they brought us in jars.. They were good though.

Thank Joe K

Food was tasty but we waited for 40 min even if the restaurant was empty. Wаitresс been extremely unpleasant, he didn't come to explain why food is late, after we got food he did not check on us, even when he brought us a bill he didn't ask if everything was ok? Droping food on table, not opening our drinks and so on... As someone who did that job I am deeply disappointed and even mad because we spent time and money without at least average service. If u visit place, skip bold tall waitress!!

We went the four of us for diner on a Saturday at 17.30. There were plenty of seats available.
Service was nice and there was a nice menu to chose from.
We had summerrolls, one vegetarian, very nice and fresh, the other summerroll with shrimps, which turned out to be the same roll with a little bir of shrimp added. Nice and tasty.
Two had the choice of 10 dim sums(count them, because one basket had only nine), choice of/or mix of chicken, salmon and fish. Chicken was very good, salmon nice, fish soso.
Then another had the small pho bo, nice, fresh herbs, and a small vegetarian salad with mango, good and tasty.
One of us had the Thai xchili lemon chicken with rice, the chicken was too sour, a real pity.
All food was freshly made.
The price is according to the food you get.

I was told it's a great new place so we went. The restaurant decor is very nice and pleasant and the menu looks promising.
We had to wait 15 minutes until a waiter paid attention to us. They have no english menu (HELLO it's 2017!!!!) which made the ordering a bit difficult.
A plate of Dim Sum arrived in the bamboo basket. I could see they were fresh and probably good but the problem was that they were cold !!!!! And why? because they had a very cold plate inside the basket which was put there and obviously was not there during the cooking process. The soup and other dishes came at the same time so you had to eat quickly in order not to have a cold meal.
The food in general was OK but really nothing more.
So yes the place is new but it's there already few months enough time to improve the service and give proper food.
I don't think they'll see me again

Ate here while in Essen for Business. Service was a little slow to start with and the place was not overly busy but it soon got better. Had a noodle dish with beef which was really tasty and also a dish called Lions Head which is basically meat balls in a sauce but it was super tasty and I would recommend both to anyone who goes. It is also great that you can sit out and enjoy the outside. Good value for money and the Service was OK after a shaky start.
