Wow, so this place rocks! It was recommended to me by some friends who used to live in Hamburg and I am so glad they did - but also sad they did because now I will forever crave the delicious goodness they sell there.
I live in Munich, currently, and the only All-You-Can-Eat mainly comes in the form of running sushi; for whatever reason I am pretty put off by the idea of running sushi. Anyway, Mr. Cherngs is a GEM, a diamond in the rough (if you will). This place is All-You-Can-Eat, does not involve running sushi; however to my delight, DOES involve fresh delicious sushi, DOES involve Mongolian BBQ, DOES involve salad bar, DOES involve an array of Chinese dishes, DOES have desert and all for the awesome price of 16€ (approximately).
I could not have been more impressed with the quality, quantity and tastiness of the food at Mr. Cherngs - especially given how inexpensive it is.
If you ever find yourself in Hamburg this place is a MUST go.
DO RESERVATIONS BEFORE YOU COME!
Quantity over quality. Well of course AYCE (ALL YOU CAN EAT) always comes with a lack of quality.
Sushi: Of course It's not original Sushi with original japanese rice, but nowdays people don't give a fuck, because it's cheap. Real Sushi like those you get in Japan or other parts of Asia will make you moan load. It's like orgasm. But you don't get those things here in Germany. And all Sushi places are ran by chinese or vietnamese.
It's ok but it's fake. And people accept the fake :D It's ok as well.
Well Mr. Cherng is not that bad compared to all the other Sushi places in Hamburg.
But let's put it simple and easy together.
Do you want quality and the real japanese thing? There are some very traditionals in Hamburg, but you pay maybe 30€ for 10 pieces of Sushi.
Or do you just wanna eat whatever it's cheaper and more popular? Then come here.
But I feel like the quality at Mr. Cherng was way way way BETTER in the past.
Still haven't managed to try the buffet, but the à la carte sushi worked out great.
The portions aren't huge --- I ate the "A8 Sushi for Two" after a too-long workday --- but the prices are reasonable. Great nigiri (fish on rice), but the maki (rolls) were a little rice-heavy for my taste. Good solid salmon and tuna, and the eel was good (if a little less savory than I usually like).
Definitely fills up on a Friday night, but it's much easier to get in midweek; open reasonably late as well, which is nice.
Another one I have been to several times, usually over the week end with visiting friends or a get together to kick off the night.
As usual, I will go through good points and room for improvements that justify my rating
- Price: it's an all-you-can--eat buffet for 16.9EUR which is quite appropriate when you look at the amount and the kind of food they serve, speaking of which...
-Food: variety and quality is quite impressive
Salad Bar (++ Kimchi & white beans)
Sushi: very diverse and delicious, essentials are there tamago, maguro, ebi, avocado, sake
Wok prepared with dressing of your choice (about 10) and with ingredients that you've choosen, which means plenty of vegetables, varied seafood, multiple kind of meat and Tofu (++ for vegetarians)
Desserts: fruits & ice cream
Staff : efficient & friendly
-Location : city, easily reachable from Monckerbergstr
The bads/room for improvements & Tips
-Tip#1 Food: the prepared woks tend to bath in oil, which from the first plate feels sickening, make sure to ask the cook to go easy on it. I mean really!
-Tip #2 Atmosphere: I wouldn't put it on the dating restaurant list
All in all, great and I would recommend it again and again, anyone can find something to eat!
When you hear 'all you can eat Asian' generally your stomach does a backflip. But good ol' Mr. Cherng is setting the record straight on good and plentiful Oriental grub.
Hard to believe, but this place dishes out an unlimited buffet of fresh sushi, Chinese favorites like bao, lo mein and more, as well as choose-your-ingredients Mongolian style wok -- all at the same time and all with remarkable quality.
And it's good. The place was packed when we stopped in on a Sunday night. At around 17 euro for AYCE, it's a helluva deal. And chances are it's better than your local sushi, Chinese or Mongo place.
God bless you, Mr. Cherng.
Asian-style buffet restaurants are a dime-a-dozen in central Hamburg. it seems like if you've been to one, you've been to them all. Mr. Cherng, however, is completely different. The food is fresh and of high quality, the variety of dishes is vast, there's fresh sushi alongside the rest of the dishes and the all-you-can-eat lunch price of 8.90eu is very fair for what you get on your plate.
I especially liked their tofu dish as well as the potato croquettes and deep-fried banana for dessert. I was happy to see fresh fruit being served with a happy abundance of melon.
Open buffet for 15EUR including sushi!
You also have the chance to design your own meal: raw meat, fish with vegetables then give it to the cook, ask for a specific sauce and 5 minutes later u got a delicious dish!
However they have a funny rule, every sushi that remains uneaten on your plate would cost you an extra 1EUR!
I presume they don't want people to attack the sushi buffet as if their life depended on it!
The waiters are really friendly and nice.
Highly recommendable for a group of friends
We had a great time here. All-you-can-eat buffet style was nicely and invitingly explained. Sushi, warm stir-fry and rice balls with bean paste for 14,90. The service was friendly, fast and very helpful. They were always aware of when our crowd was getting bigger, bringing more tables and chairs without us even asking! The interior is really pleasant with nice lighting and well arranged. The restaurant is very large, but each party has the feeling of being 'to themselves'. I look forward to going again!
very reasonable for the price and location 5 stars for the all-you-can+eat at lunchtime
