This is The City

Restaurant The City is located in the center of Eindhoven. A restaurant where you can enjoy Asian cuisine with an international twist for lunch or even a late night dinner. Whether you want to dine extensively, have a quick bite to eat or host a business lunch or dinner.

"We want our guests to feel at home here and enjoy good food", says owner Mara Chan. “Our restaurant has the international vibe that you often see abroad. A casual and relaxed atmosphere. If you come in at 21:30, you can still sit down and have a bite to eat.”

International setting

“My roots are in Zwolle where my parents owned a Chinese restaurant. After high school, I wanted to study Industrial Engineering and I chose the university of Eindhoven. I lost my heart to this city. After I graduated I travelled a lot and also lived and worked abroad. I was an expat in China and Singapore. There, I enjoyed the food and the atmosphere so much. After years of working for Philips, Royal IHC and Vanderlande, I decided that I wanted something completely different in terms of work. I wanted to go back to the hospitality industry and create an atmosphere in which that pleasant international setting would prevail. Of course in the city of Eindhoven, because I love this city.”

Sunny rooftop terrace

Mara stumbled upon the available building of The City by accident. “There have been restaurants at this location before, but in a different price category than The City. We want to be accessible to everyone, with personal attention and great service.” There is something for everyone when it comes to the seating in the restaurant. From cosy tables for two to all kinds of options for larger groups. The space on the second floor of the restaurant is perfect for a business meeting. Upstairs you will also find The City's best-kept secret: a delightful rooftop terrace! “This is such a nice spot. A hidden terrace, an oasis of peace right in the city center.”

Many options

The menu is inspired by authentic Asian cuisine with a hint of European fusion. “The dishes are prepared in the pan, teppanyaki or in our Spanish Josper charcoal oven. You can combine everything on the menu the way you want it and of course, you can share. We also have Asian beers, whiskeys and cocktails on our menu to complete the experience. For our business guests, we can put together a menu in advance so they can focus on their meeting. We advise everyone to share their wishes with us because we always look at what we can do for you.”
