I was told that from here I can find the authentic Chinese food. I must say that the food was too spicy and expensive. Mao's pork was apparently popular, but it was in my opinion only sweet and fat meat. It was also expensive and take long time to arrive. Rice was not hot either. The restaurant's decor was also...

This is quite authentic chinese restaurant. It is spicy also - more like sichuan style. The place is not so chinese and the air-conditioning is not good. Food is different than in other chinese restaurants in Helsinki.

The food is good but not mind-blowing. Everything is ok and the service is good but there could be more flavor in everything. Food is prepared quite fast and I haven't had trouble getting a table without a reservation.

Skip this place and go to Mei Lin instead. No comparison. I'm Chinese and the food was not good. Too sweet and too oily. I don't mind spending money for good food, but it's not worth the money at all.

I would say they had the best Chinese in town. Closer to Cantonese flavour. Must try are the lamb with cumin seeds and a fried chicken drumsticks. Tram 9 stops right outside the place. Great for families and business lunches. Staff are Chinese and they are very friendly.

Been a very regular visitor here since 2009, and been "hobbying" chinese food everywhere I go. I still keep Dong bei hu as one of the top5 sichuan restaurant i've ever experienced in the whole world. Ask for specialities, ask for recommendations:)

Among my favorite and top Chinese places in Helsinki. I was told by a friend who spent few years in China that the food here is more closer to food in north of China. Great service.

Sunday in Helsinki for restaurants doesn't offer the greatest choice, that said Dong Bei Hu gives a good impression and serves up decent food. Personally i didn't think it was expensive (£94 for 4 people, including two beers, coke and green tea). The recommendation for the starter wasn't all that, should've stuck with choice of spring rolls, but mains were... More

A bit hidden restaurant but a great find. Very tasty and good Chinese dishes (don't know the region...), lots of Chinese customers too :-)
