I can absolutely recommend to try the Tom Yam Gung (Shrimp Soup with Tamarind, Lemon Grass, Galangal, etc. ) if you're a fan of spicy, fragrant Thai food. Unlike many other restaurants the chefs here do not use instant ingredients for the browth - they cook it from scratch. (Which is also why you might find huge pieces of spices... More

It took several hours for this meal, and we had 2 children. I think 2 dishes were forgotten since they came much longer after the food for the kids. I asked to pay when we were done, and there was a lost key of some kind. The bill had to be hand written out - we paid a full 20... More

I tried this place with a friend and we got average food but the service lacked concentration. We had to wait too long for the dishes and it took also a while to pay the bill.

We entered the empty restaurant (save for a single table with two people) last week during launch. We sat down and the waitress literally threw the menu on our table, then disappeared in the kitchen. After literally 20 minutes of waiting for the waitress to took our orders in the empty restaurant (while hearing continuous laughter coming from what I... More

They homamade even thai drinks and they are delicious. First we choose to share a selection of staters with 3 sauces and is was quite big even for 2 (12... More

Usually I go to the restaurant near by, but I decided to give it a try. The area is packed with Asian restaurants, only around there are four other Thai places, and they claim to be also a cooking school, so you can't go wrong, right? I ordered the most common Thai dish, chicken with chilli, garlic and Thai basil... More

Really well prepared Thai food. The Massaman and green curries are excellent, lots of vegetarian choices and they will prepare to the heat you want. The drinks are reasonably priced and the service is always with a smile.

We visited Dao's restaurant three times whilst we were in Berlin due to the fact that the food was so good. The first meal was for four people (one of whom was Thai) and we ate dinner. Although the prices of the dishes are expensive (relatively speaking), I would make a comment that a main dish could be shared between... More

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighbourhood Profile
Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which lends its name to this well-heeled neighbourhood. Here you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city: upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop down Kurfürstendamm, the most renowned high-end shopping street in Berlin, where you can find all the big designer names. In the evening, visit one of the old theatres close by Zoo Station which were nightlife hot spots in the 1920s, or dine in one of the many international restaurants around Savignyplatz before heading to other parts of town for a night out.
