Description: Berns Salonger, a hotel, conference facility and nightclub, are situated in the heart of Stockholm in 19th century splendour. This is also where you'll find Berns Asiatiska, the city's first Chinese restaurant, which opened in 1944, when it was honoured with a visit from the Chinese embassy. Berns Asiatiska still strives to be an international meeting place which introduces new flavours. These days you can enjoy dishes from all the regions of Asia. At weekends an enormous brunch buffet is served and in the afternoons, you can pop in for ?yum cha? (Chinese tea) which includes dumplings and a fantastic desserts buffet. What's more, you can always watch the skilled sushi chefs at work ?live? in the restaurant.

Had an early lunch meeting with clients and they suggested Berns Asiatiska.

Venue: inside a stunning old ballroom with a huge mirrored wall and chandeliers to match. Not what I was expecting for Asian food

Food: We all opted for the Bento box and it changes every week. This one was a combo of 6 dishes (+rice). A cod and asparagus dish, Beef and Sweet potato, peanut chicken, Miso noodle soup, Sushi and stir fried prawns. All were very decent. Then a dessert buffet.

Value: Bento box was good value as it was lunch only water and coffee as drinks. All considered was pretty fairly priced at around 30 GBP a head

The décor is magnificient, probably the best feature of the restaurant. I have been there several times, usually with guests who visit Stockholm for the first time. All of the times I was there the service was excellent.
They had very good "bao" before but the ones I had last night was cold (!). You would expect them to be steaming hot. The Thai meatball was very good but pickled carrot in curry?, hmmm. So I will go there again but not for the food, from an Asian point of view.

Probably one of the most famous establishments in Stockholm and the first to serve Asian cuisine in Sweden back in the 1940is 60 years of experience is definitely showing in the dishes and they do deserve there fame.

Located in a beautiful building the dining hall is tastefully decorated with large mirrors and chandeliers. This might sound odd for a Asian restaurant but it all comes to gather in a beautiful harmony.

Stop reading and go eat, now!

Only 3 points and that was very much due to slow service and bad planned delivery of food. One of main courses came >20 minutes before the sushis. So when two of us started with the sushis, the third person had finalised his meal.... had to remind the staff about one of the drinks before dinner as well. Skip the pavlova for dessert. Sushis and Thai meat balls were superb though.
