I was here on a Sunday noon for lunch and took the buffet. There is a Mongolian buffet as well meaning you chose your items and than it is grilled in the wok in front of you all fresh. Besides that there are also prepared dishes to choose from. You find everything from soup, spring rolls, main dished with duck, chicken, vegetables as well as desserts incl. fried banana, ice cream. I was more food for the masses rather than class. The restaurant is large and you can go here with big groups. I have had a much better Mongolian buffet in Frankfurt before for about the same price, I have to say. This felt more like they were trying to feed lots of people rather than provide a good experience and a great taste pleasure.
The food was not authentic Asian or Chinese rather made for German tongue.
And the restaurant is quiete loud too. With lots of small kids around us.

Just like one other reviewer said earlier, if you like German food that tastes like Chinese, you'll probably be OK.
I had the buffet, which was filled with greasy, deep fried items that didn't taste all that good. I didn't touch the sushi, and only had a little bit of the chow mein, some of the deep fried beef stuff (really not that good at all) and a dumpling that was so bad that I took a bite and set it aside.
The only great thing was the dessert of fried bananas. The cake was a German Bienenstich, which was dry and maybe frozen prior. Overall, tasteless and super unhealthy food.
The service was also not the greatest. The waitress was rude and dismissive.
I've had great Chinese food in Germany before, but this wasn't part of that.

We were invited to here lunch and had the buffet. Most of the food was either deep-fried or drowning in over MSG'd sauces. To be fair, they had a sign over the buffet that clearly stated they use flavoring (Geschmacksversträrker). Also, if you're inclined to eat Chinese food modified for German tastebuds, this might be OK, although we've heard from others that there are much better options around town. Sushi doesn't have fish in it, soup was flavorless. We could go on. Suffice it to say: if you like real Chinese food, you probably should go somewhere else. On the other hand, it was only about 8EURO pp.
