Lviv seems to be lagging behind worldwide Asian food hype. There are not many places to enjoy a traditional Asian cuisine dinner. The Chinese fast-food places list is pretty short as well. «Destinations» tries to narrow down top places to have Asian food in Lviv.
Chinese restaurants and takeaways are among the most popular eating options worldwide.
Traditional Chinese restaurants, set-price pan-Asian buffets, modernized, specialist Chinese restaurants, the selection of places to enjoy a good Asian food in European cities usually cater to most elaborate foodies’ tastes.

It seems like Beijing restaurant has been in Lviv forever. Honestly, this place has over 20 years history and is the pioneer of Chinese gastro scene in Lviv. Centrally located on Hrushevskoho street, this place offers endless parking opportunities by Lviv standards and cozy summer terrace under shady trees. It underwent major renovation in its interior design recently. Beijing offers Sichuan and northern Chinese menu, the mix of plate glass and ersatz Old Beijing decor and hard chairs. Now this is a classic Chinese restaurant with a sufficient menu and drinks list. All food in Beijing is cooked by Chinese chef. There's a lengthy selection of authentic, home-style Sichuan, Hunan and northern dishes served with uncommonly friendly service.
Address: 8, Grushevskoho street, Lviv.
Pan Tao restaurant may bring somewhat mixed feelings when attending for the first time. Located outside city center, this place may be a bit challenging to find, so we suggest to take a cab to get here in order to save time. Pan Tao occupies the ground floor of soviet multi-floored building, however its lavish design will hardly let you look above to notice the communist era architecture. The food here is an authentic mixture of pan-asian cuisines. There’s Cantonese dim sum, classic Beijing-style roast duck, spicy Sichuan cuisine and plenty more to choose from Pan Tao menu.
