Lonely Friday night and I tag along with my dealer (wine merchant) and fatherly friend Hartwig to attend the Tsun Gai. Hunger has struck and I‘ve never been to the Tsun Gai before, so I gladly join Jutta, Adolf, Hartwig, Lars and Alex for a dim sum dinner.

 

Passing it many times I know exactly where it is but I have to admit that it‘s smaller than I expected. Next to the entrance there are two aquariums of which I‘m not sure what the use is. A big bar is right next to the entrance but since the whole party is sitting right at the table in front of me, I don‘t take a closer look around. It‘s all neat and clean but nothing that stands out or makes you look twice.

 

It‘s Dim Sum time and we order a couple of rounds of different dishes which are pretty authentic in taste and well-made. Solid dim sums that are very traditional and helped this little restaurant to 13 points in the Gault Millau for several years in a row. There‘s nothing that kicks you out of this world but very decent and tasty dim sums. However I cannot help but feel that they do utilize flavor enhancers at least to some degree. I didn‘t take a closer look at the menu, so I‘m not sure. Needless to say that I am not a fan of these little helpers.

 

Service is a catastrophe. A smile? Missing in action. The only thing they haven‘t done is to actually throw the dishes onto the table. And desperately looking for a very punctual closing. I always thought that was more of a German trait. While I can neglect bad service at times in some places because their food is too damn good, I doubt that I will come here frequently in the future. It‘s good but not that good.
