Very friendly staff and great view. Too bad the food was not good. Dragon Eggplant was far too fat and too salt. Curry patatoes over coocked and not Well spiced. Good place for a cols drink.

I do not know what the hostel is like to stay in, we only ate here one night, I got food poisoning from eating here and was sick for three days. The whole service was not great, we were unable to order more rice, for some reason and when we asked for chopsticks and a bowl instead of being expected... More

We didn't stay here, but only had dinner one night. The terrace is really nice for enjoying a relaxed evening. The food portions were rather small, we had burgers at first, but had to order another dishes as we were left hungry. The food isn't bad per se, but there wasn't any specific taste in it either. I would recommend... More

We had many meals here over our week's stay and the quality and service was fantastic. Can recommend the sizzling beef and the broccoli and garlic stir fry. Good cheap cold Tsing Tao!

I loved the burger with the belgian fries, the real Heinz tomato ketchup and the belgian beers! Also really good was the Chinese food, sweet and sour pork for example! And what about the pizza or the other food? Fabulous! The restaurant has a really nice and relaxing vibe with nice music (not too loud) and a great view at... More

Food at Trippers was really surprising. Every single thing I tried was delicious, very big portions of very good food. One of my main reasons travelling to China, apart from the sightseeing, was the food and I have to say that the highlight was here at Trippers. They have a very wide selection of food, also set menus, which include... More
