Just as at its sister restaurant in Visby, Gotland, Surfers brings a taste of Chinese food culture to Stockholm. The menu includes small dishes with flavours from all over China, along with colourful cocktails and cold beers. At Surfers, it's summer all year round. If you want an extra experience, book in a tea ceremony or a drinks tasting of Chinese spirits.

You'll find Surfers in Nosh and Chow's elegant premises on Norrlandsgatan, a stone's throw from Stureplan. The restaurant is famous for their Sichuan flavours and popular dishes. There are small dishes to suit all tastes and diets, whether you're vegan, vegetarian, eat fish and seafood, chicken or meat. Bang Bang chicken and ginger-fried tofu are two of their most talked-about dishes.

Accompany your meal with something tasty to drink - beer on tap or by the bottle, selected wines and expertly-mixed cocktails from their own cocktail menu. Sip on a Pepperquest lemonade, Spicy Garden or Surfing Hainan, or perhaps a drink based on Chinese rice wine?

In addition to the bar and restaurant, Surfers also offers drinks tastings. Taste drinks such as baijiu and Shaoxing - China's bestselling spirits - and learn more about China. Or choose an experience in the Temple bar, with an authentic kung fu-style tea ceremony.

Surfers is a round trip to China, via an elegant English-style townhouse.

Hade en grym kväll med ett kompisgäng på 7 pers. Bordet var perfekt storlek, så man kunde prata alla tillsammans utan att skrika!

Personalen trevlig, maten god, nice lokal och läge. Kommer absolut tillbaka!

Was there o ate with the family on a Thursday night.
When you come in, it's a very nice interior, you feel the Chinese atmosphere. Very nicely set on the tables!

When it came to the menu, it was very difficult to understand what the dishes were, so it took time before you felt sa... Show full »

Great vibe, really nice staff, especially Ludde the Chinese spirits sommelier - what a legend. The food is great as well. I don't know what they put in the spinach, but it's amazing - I don't even like spinach otherwise, but this was bomb.

Surfers är alltid en bra idé. Perfekt för en drink, snacks samt middag. Maten är jätte god och personalen är trevlig! Miljön är mörk men fin inredning.

Enligt mig en av de bästa asiatiska i stan! Kinesisk Sichuan at its best! Missa inte räkbollarna, friterad tofu och bangbangen. Ta också en shot baiju!

I have previously visited Surfers in Visby, and have since loved their food. They have really made me love Chinese and Sichuan. Now It was a visit to Stockholm, where they camped in the Bumblebee during the summer (not on the Government Street) but with all the same concept.

So good. We had the fortune of grabbing a couple of the open seats by the bar (we hadn’t booked - on a Wednesday night) and we were met with a fantastic service with a barman who knew as much about the food as he did about the wine. We left the food choice to him. And he proposed 3 wines to ch... Show full »

Här blir man alltid lika nöjd, vare sig om man vill ta en drink, sätta sig i luckan för en mindre middag eller komma som ett stort sällskap. Maten känns genuin, men ändå nytänkande och man går aldrig ifrån där hungrig.

Starts with the best, clearly the service. Sick nice waiter in a good way. The food was also good but no jaw-dropping unfortunately. Baozi good but a little tasteless. Stir-fried green neutral and very generous, more flavor than expected. Dandan noodles good balance and sichuan sneaks on with its nu... Show full »

Fun place, special and pleasant atmosphere. Food-wise, it was both highs and lows, but in summary it can be said that it is of course well-prepared food and that some dishes are hits but that have still a little difficulty with the Chinese flavors. The Wonton dumplings were really good, and the shri... Show full »

Surfers do it again! 

One of my favorite restaurants in Stockholm. In their food there is a lot of taste and you get an incredible amount for the money. This time we chose to bring in six dishes on three people, it was enough – very full and satisfied after our visit! ... Show full »

Jättemysig lokal, trevlig och avspänd personal, supergoda rätter, åt fyra olika vegetariska. Önskar de kunde ta tillbaka bangbang-potatisen som jag åt på Surfers i Visby. Den var oförglömlig.

I tested their pop-up in the Bumblebee last summer, which made me start daydreaming about their Auspicious räkbollar! To relieve abstinence, a table was booked at the Surfers.

The Decor is kitschy and cheerful and the atmosphere is just lovely. A mix of couples, friends, afterworkare,... Show full »

Nice environment and good food but not wow. Maybe two dishes out of seven that were wow but the rest was just good. We had to wait a good while before we could order drinks. In the end, we had to ask for menus and order drinks ourselves and my company that ordered the champagne was turned off. So n... Show full »

Incredibly Tasty and tasty. Umamibomber! We took in a bunch of dishes that became a good combination between strong, sweet and sour. Friendly staff. A plus because we could get Quorn instead of chicken in one of the rights.

If you like authentic Chinese food, Surfers are worth a visit! Mainly recommend the shrimp balls. Something to keep in mind, however, is that the majority of the dishes are strong, unfortunately I think the strong takes over the dining experience if you do not bring in at least a more neutral dish.
