This establishment offers a unique mixture of the Parisian Bistro, the Viennese Kaffeehaus and the Roman restaurant not uncommon to Berlin. Manzini is owned by partners Marina Mittmann, Carsten Weimann and Johannes Lehye. To have a superb cappuccino, served with a glass of fresh water, to enjoy the range of good food from the exceptional Wiener Schnitzel to a state-of-the-art Risotto, or to delight in the consummate sweet dish, the Austrian Kaiserschmarrn, makes each visit to Manzini worthwhile. The interior is inviting, with its wood and leather furnishings and pastel walls. Whether you settle down for an early breakfast, complete with international newspapers, or meet with business friends for a drink, you will always find it comfortable, quiet and in good style. Manzini offers two excellent dishes each weekday for their business lunch. Manzini is open almost round the clock; opening at 8am, they are open till 2am next morning. It is one of the places where you can settle down from shopping and relax, while the friendly and professional staff take your orders. And make sure you get a place on the sidewalk on a summer evening!

Just a leisurely walk of two minutes from the Ludwigkirchstraße to the Meier-Otto-Straße off Fasanenplatz you will be rewarded by a very extraordinary Thai restaurant. Mao Thai is owned by Norbert Frankenstein, who also runs several other Thai restaurants in Berlin. Norbert lived in Japan, teaching at a university, when he visited Thailand for the first time and fell in love with the country and its cuisine, especially in the poor northeastern region. Since those days he has had the desire to "export" the truly Siamese cuisine to Berlin. His chefs are from Thailand and the quality of the food is beyond question. But Norbert has given his business an underlying philosophy which is unique. Seeing the poverty in the North East of Thailand, he decided to initiate his own personal contribution for Third World. He regularly brings over staff from Thailand, giving them the chance to earn more money to invest in their future than they could ever expect in rural Thailand while supporting their families at home. A part of the profits from Mao Thai are being used in Thailand to support poor farmers or talented youths, who otherwise could not afford a good education. Norbert will be happy to chat with you and explain his concept. A wonderful interior and a truly authentic Siamese dinner will make your visit memorable.

Pizzeria Amigo
Joachimstaler Str. 39/40, 10623 Berlin - Charlottenburg | Tel: 882 25 49, Fax: no fax | U9 Kurfürstendamm | Sun-Thu 11.00-1.00, Fri+Sat 11.00-2.00 | Prices: Large pizza from DM5.90, Mains from DM9.90.
Fancy a pizza after trawling the Ku'Damm's golden mile? Located less than a minute's walk away, diagonally opposite Karstadt Sport, Amigo and his friendly staff will serve you well. They offer a large selection of wonderful Italian dishes at good prices. This place is popular with locals and tourists alike, both of whom can be found relaxing in the spacious room at the back. The menu is available in English as well as German.

Restaurant Udagawa
Kantstr. 118, 10625 Berlin - Charlottenburg | Tel: 312 30 14, Fax: no fax | U7 Wilmersdorfer Str. |
A genuine family-run Japanese greasy spoon on the western fringe of what is destined to be Berlin´s first Chinatown. The section at the front is self-service, you´ll pay a little more for service in the back room. Forgo the sushi for once and dip into the delectable tori udon, crispy smoky chicken thighs in robust greasy broth and home made udon noodles, sprinkle a little shichimi (Japanese 7-pepper mix) - magnificent. Other favorites are the katsu (deep fried crispy chicken with gravy on rice) and the yaki udon (fried noodle). Great flavor and value, no pretence.

Ristorante Borbone
Windscheidstr. 14,, 10627 Berlin - Charlottenburg | Tel: 323 83 05,, Fax: 324 71 61 | S-Bahn Charlottenburg or U7 Wilmersdorferstr | Mains - 30+ | Credit
cards: AmEx, EC, Visa, MC | Times: Daily, 12-24 h
If you want to impress or treat somebody, then this fine old establishment is the place.

The Borbone has been run by Guiseppe Lapone and his Sicilian family for 24 years. They take pride in greeting all guests personally and offering friendly service. Regulars don't even bother asking for the menu, but are advised by the staff of the day's specials. The wine list is arguably the best in the city for Italian vintages.

One of the restaurant's specialities is fish and seafood. Choice meat dishes such as lamb in rosemary and white wine sauce are also recommended.

With the cosy atmosphere, surrounded by wine bottles and oak, is a pleasant place to spend a whole evening. Different puddings are on display each day, but the winners are definitely the chocolate mousse and the panacotta (the tiramisu is a tad disappointing). A little off the beaten track, Borbone is certainly not sceny, yet it promises quality, and just a couple of visits bring customer recognition otherwise rare in Berlin.
