Fred's Restaurant (L'Entrecôte) Mitte
French,  specials, Credit cards. M +++ ++++
Chinese and Indian Überall und Everywhere
There may be a really good Cantonese (or other) chinese rest. in Berlin, I haven't found one yet that combines authenticity with good service and ambience.
Good Friends- ok
Aroma- can be good, once disappointed
Noodle House (Lon Men?) good but simple
Ming Dynasty (Jannowitzbrücke)- good
Indian-same only worse- get a glass of Patak's spice mix and follow the instructions, steam some rice, make raita from yoghurt with cucumber grated and salted to remove much of its water (like with tsatsiki)- add roast cumin seeds (Kreuzkümmel)- a few seconds in a dry frying pan then grind and cayenne and a bottle of beer and you're going to have better food than pretty well any indian in town. Have some chutney and lime pickle on the side. I have asked for these and sometimes restaurants here didn't have any. Make another side dish with chopped tomatoes, onions, coriander leaves, lemon juice, cumin, chili. Papadoms as starter are ok if you're quick before they burn. Doing it at home: P ++++++ +++++
