High ceilings, noble grey walls with colourful manga paintings, discreetly placed neon lights and a convivial atmosphere: These are the first impressions when entering Nu Restaurant in Charlottenburg, where versatile pan-Asian cuisine is served.

Nu Restaurant is not a newcomer. It already opened its doors in 2004 in Schlüterstraße, not far from Savignyplatz and thus in a highly competitive area for Asian restaurants. Nowhere else in the city are more Asian restaurants than in nearby Kantstraße. And so Nu Restaurant had to assert itself individually and continues to do so today with fine fast food and conviviality.

Family-style dining is the order of the day here. Instead of small individual tables, there are long tables and large group tables where guests are seated together. "We have many couples who met at our place and still come," restaurant manager Yim tells us. Freely according to the motto "eat, drink, man, woman".

After the takeover by Vinotharan Inparajah, who also runs Mr. Chai Wala on Kantstraße, Nu Restaurant was renovated and modernised, but the original character was preserved. The menu is still multicultural: there are classics of Vietnamese, Thai and Japanese cuisine, but also dishes like burgers, ceviche, tartar or steak - always with an Asian twist.

True to the sharing concept, we try our way through the menu. The sake ceviche with marinated salmon, sweet potatoes, red onions and chilli are fresh and juicy. Just right for the start. The bao buns filled with veal, coriander and onions are reminiscent of the Asian version of tacos and are ideal finger food.

We enjoy the homemade lemonade and a fruity cucumber-ginger-lychee martini, which we have never had before. It will not be the last.

Also very tasty and very umami is the crispy duck on seasonal vegetables, especially spicy thanks to the house whisky sauce. A little milder is the Black Tiger Truffle Bowl from the current seasonal menu, which changes about every six weeks. The thick, baked black tiger prawns complement the truffle ponzu vinaigrette beautifully. They are served with rice, salad and avocado.

Regarding vegetables, Nu Restaurant pays attention to regionality and seasonality. This is not the case with seafood, but shrimp fans get their money's worth: black tiger prawns are also available fried as a whole or half kilo with various side dishes. Truly a highlight for which there is not enough hunger this time.

However, dessert is always on the menu, so we enjoy the chocolate lava cake with white chocolate and banana mousse and vanilla ice cream. Since we can't resist the pan-Asian charm, we end our visit to Nu Restaurant with a mochi filled with pistachio. Delicious!

Whether in whole groups, as a couple or at the large mixed tables, the atmosphere at Nu Restaurant is exuberant, and with its skilful pan-Asian cuisine, it has lost none of its charm.
