Description: Out of China is a Chinese restaurant, located in the center of Barcelona, ​​specializing in handmade dim sum and traditional Chinese cuisine.
Reviewed March 8, 2018

The place is nice and waiters speak Spanish English and Catalan, that will definitively be a plus the the less adventurous patrons. But the dim sum was tasteless and rough. And the lacquered duck... was not laquered at all... it had been roasted in whole breasts, sliced thick and served. Which is NOT how Peking duck or lacquered duck has to be prepared. At 16 EUR per serving they could have paid more attention and been more authentic. Go instead to the Pato Pekin at the Port Olimpic for a cheaper version of a real (modest) Peking duck, or to Mr Kao for a high end (30 EUR, small serving) version. If you want real Chinese stuff ... go elsewhere.

A group of colleagues decided upon this restaurant, as one of the group loved and grew up in beautiful Barcelona. She had been here before, and loved it.

In short, we all did too.

The food was amazing: perfectly prepared, expertly served and with delicate flavors that all of us felt were superior. I would strongly recommend the dumplings. We had several types, and each was superb.

It's a busy place; it's smart to consider making a reservation. You will be glad you did.

We are two sisters and we came from Mallorca. We wanted to try something different and delicious from our daily routine. The service and food are very good. Highly recommended. Thank you.

Delicious meals, friendly service and welcoming restaurant. Thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Out of China - the taste was authentic and the kitchen was going like the clappers all the time we were there. Also lots of Chinese diners (a good sign!).

Really enjoyed our meal there, and so nice to enjoy jasmine tea after chinese food (recommend it instead of coffee)
