A COOL PLACE FOR SEXY ASIAN FOOD. THEY'VE GOT FAIRY LIGHTS, PROPER COCKTAILS, SASHIMI AND VERY RICH, SPICY COCO-NUTTY CURRY. SOLD.
WHERE: On a foodie street in Mitte, Rosa-Luxemburg-Straße 9–11.
THE DEAL: At Prince you can look sexy while you eat awesome food - win f***ing win. Flattering low lighting, candles and fairy lights set the scene for the Asian feast that awaits. Add on great cocktails and some of the nicest waiters we've ever encountered and you've got an epic evening sorted.
THE FOOD: Everything is delicious. There is literally nothing on the menu that isn't good. For starters the Salmon "Raw cubes" marinaded in lime and chilli were fresh and zingy. The "Green hornet" prawns with wasabi were bomb (if a little stingy on the portion). "Broken duck salad" was the only slight disappointment. It was a sizeable dish but according to M it made for a slightly odd combination of hot duck on cold crunchy bean sprouts. Not a disaster, just not ideal. For mains the green and red curries were delicious. Like I could happily drink the curry sauce all day kind of good. Very rich and very saucy. Choose from tofu, chicken, beef or tiger prawns and every curry dish comes with complimentary steamed sticky rice. They also have a milder yellow curry and nuttier phanaeng curry for those precious flowers who are adverse to spice. Other main courses include the "Lemongrass chicken" which was a harmless but nonetheless enjoyable dish of chicken, rice and veg. More exotic dishes include the "Duck and ducker" ½ grilled duck, 5 spices dish and a lamb dish with plum sauce. Both dishes were the perfect balance of good quality meat, cooked well with epic sauces to jazz them up. We would love to tell you about dessert but we were too f***ing greedy for our own good so had no room for it.
THE PRICE: Prices aren't bad if you order strategically. Cocktails will set you back around €8-12. Starters are all over the place price-wise. Small bites like the 'Chicken little' crispy chicken skin (€5) or Papaya party-girl salad (€5.50) seem cheap but the portions reflect that. The "Broken duck salad" is €11.50 and "Raw cubes" is €9. For mains you can get the very reasonable "Lemongrass chicken" for €13. Otherwise prices climb up towards €20 or so - the "Duck and Ducker" and "Plum lamb" are both €19. Curries all start at €13 if you have it with tofu and then slowly creep up depending on what your choice of meat is (black tiger prawns are the most expensive at €24).
PAY BY: €ash and card.
BEST FOR: Sex appeal, good asian food and the best service in town. This is perfect date night or girls night out material.
