Great Chinese restaurant right on the promenade along Lake Lucerne

Excellent food and service in a covered outdoor patio by Lake Lucerne with spectacular views of Mount Pilatus and other mountains (indoor seating in colder months?)

Reservations recommended. Very popular with the upper class crowd. Very expensive but worth the experience and the food was excellent.

Especially recommended - fried mushrooms! We never had anything like that.

Be sure to ask for the vegan menu.

Pros: Great vegan choices , Amazing location by the lakeside, Wonderful waiter with great suggestions

Cons: Expensive but great experience

Besides the original menu they have a fully vegan menu. Just ask for it, if it‘s not provided in the beginning. After a delicious glass noodle salad and dim sum, they absolutely surprised us with a fantastic vegan duck and vegan chicken. If you are around lucerne, you should definetely pass by and enjoy real personal service and an amazing lake view!

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Kind personal service, Delicious and well portioned

Flavor town

Delicious and fresh vegan options which are clearly labeled on the menu. The service was a little slow, maybe understaffed due to covid but the kitchen was fast and made up for it!

Pros: Friendly staff, Clearly labeled vegan options

Delicious vegan option restaurant

We visited this place with two friends of us and had a really good dinner. They have some really good vegan options, also starters you can share and you need to try the Jackfruit.

Pros: Many vegan options, Jackfruit

Cons: „Small“ portions

gutes Restaurant

Essen war sehr gut und auch mehr als es zuerst scheinte. Vegane Menus sind gut ersichtlich auf der Speisekarte. Bei den Hauptgängen gab es eine grosse vegane Auswahl beim Dessert nur eine kleine.

Pros: Viele vegane Menus, Leckeres Essen, Sehr nettes Personal

Cons: etwas teuer, Im Restaurant wird auch Fleisch angeboten

Nice Chinese

We didn't find it at first, outdoor seating is towards the water.

Went there for dinner and had the warm platter starter which was simply great, the gong pao tofu and the seitan which were good but less exciting.

Pros: Nice and friendly staff, Great outdoor seating, Starter was great

Amazing tasteful food!

Had the Gongbao tofu, spring rolls, dim sims and fried rice. It was all amazing and so full of flavour. The only problem I had was that they gave me the vegan menu and I ordered the fried rice but it came with egg in it so my partner had to eat it. So if you order the fried rice make sure you double check there is no egg. I could eat here over and over again!
A little expensive but really worth it if you can afford it.

Pros: Complimentary rice

Had a really nice time there

The vegan menu offers many options. I had the mushroom pan, which was well made. The starters platter for 2 is also recommendable. It has a nice combination of different starters.
The staff was courteous and friendly. The ambience was typical for a chinese restaurant.

Pros: Big vegan menu card, Friendly staff, Authentic and qualitative high experience

Cons: Food is good but not that astounding
