Favourite Chinese & Taiwanese food spots

Berlin is home to some amazing Chinese food. Right now seems like the perfect time to gather with friends and share a hot pot, have some warm Taiwanese noodles or some deliciously flavoured broths. We've listed some of the places we most love, and some hints on what to order. Some places are best enjoyed with friends or bigger groups, whilst others are even nicer to pop into on your own. 

1. Lon-Men's Noodle House
Kantstraße 33, 10625 - Charlottenburg
+49 (0) 30 31519678 | More Info
Monday to Sunday 12:00 - 23:00
Anytime is a good time to come to Lon-Men's! But, when I'm in the area, I am usually here for lunch. It's a lovely spot, but fast-paced, meaning, it's not the place for slow dining! Best experienced on your own or with a friend or two (it's tiny, so not good for big groups) and popping in for a quick bite. Later, you can save some time to have a coffee one of many charming cafés on Savigny Platz.

2. Selig
Kantstraße 51, 10625 - Charlottenburg                                                                                               +49 30 91493669 | More Info
Sunday to Thursday 12:00 - 22:30, Friday & Saturday 12:00 - 23:00
Szechuan at its finest! Order the water spinach and mapotofu (spicy pork and tofu dish), and a hot pot that takes your fancy. It's also on Kantstr., not far from Selig and Aroma. Selig is best enjoyed with a couple of friends, as the dishes are nicer to share, and they are bigger portions! The food is spicy, so make sure to check how many pepper there are next to the dish on the menu. 

3. Aroma
Kantstraße 35, 10625 - Charlottenburg
+49 30 37591628 | More Info
Monday to Sunday 11:00 - 21:00
Order the soup dumplings, dim sum, radish cakes and Chinese greens. Aroma is also great for big groups, as they have a lot of space and large round tables. The food is fresh, aromatic and better for sharing. 

4. The Tree
Brunnenstraße 167, 10119 - Mitte
+49 30 67961848 | Website
Monday 12:00 - 23:00, Tuesday to Friday 09:00 - 23:00, Saturday & Sunday 10:00 - 23:00
The Tree is a lovely spot, tucked away in Mitte, they serve lovely noodles and noodle soups which have clean and invigorating flavours. It also wins for atmosphere, a very cosy, organic and peaceful environment which resembles a flower shop. This is a great place to come alone, with a friend, or for perhaps a date. They do great lunch specials too. 

5. Tian Fu / Tianfuzius
Tian Fu | Uhlandstraße 142, 10719 (+49 30 8613015)
Tianfuzius | Regensburger Str. 1, 10777 (+49 30 91539833)                                                             
Monday to Friday 12 - 15:30, 17:30 – 23, Saturday & Sunday 12:00 - 23:00
Tianfuzius is a vegetarian (vegan-friendly) sister restaurant of Tian Fu, both Sichuan cuisine. TianFu has 2 branches, and is know for their (non-vegetarian) hot pots. Both sister restaurants have changing lunch specials and serve delicious, authentic food. It's possible to book tables, and all restaurants are great for groups! The food is fresh and well prepared, worthy of a feast. 

6. Da Jia Le
Goebenstraße 23, 10783 - Kreuzberg
+49 30 21459745 | Website
Monday to Friday 12:00 - 23:00
The Location and decor can be a bit off putting, but this Northern Chinese Restaurant serves really authentic, delicious food.  Good for people that like spicy and non spicy food. It is perfect for groups, but maybe not the most romantic location for a date, due to the Green colored walls and decor.  Another plus is that its easy to book a table.
