Good restaurant in the centre of old Suzhou

This restaurant appeared to us a good place after a long day walking along the old part of Suzhou. It's not so easy to find it, as it is located in the centre of old town of Suzhou. The best way to find it is to use one of electronic maps. When you enter 吴门人家, you feel like you are... read more

I read about this restaurant through Trip Advisor earlier and our local Chinese friend also agreed that this is a good restaurant. Environment of the restaurant is cozy. We had a small private dining room that fits 10 nicely. The menu has a vast variety of cold starter and hot dishes. The famour Suzhou cuisine is of course the sweet... More

This place is a bit hard to find but luckily we had a guide. There were no other foreigners there and I'm not sure anyone could speak English, but there is a picture menu. The food was the best I had in my trip to China (and we visited some posh restaurants in Shanghai). Not spicy or sweet, very subtle... More

The squirrel fish was the highlight of our meal here. Don't worry, no squirrels were harmed in the preparation of this dish. The price for squirrel fish in most restaurants seems high compared to other fish dishes, but the result is highly labour intensive. The chef parbroils the fish, before deboning the body section without filleting, to retain the basic... More

The food is authentic suzhou food but we found it quite oily. The setting is ancient style which was nice. Waitresses were attentive. Overall, found it quite over-rated.

Had a bit of trouble finding the Resturant as it is in a alley off the main drag, and there is no signage. We actually thought we were in the wrong the place. -BTW the alley is directly opposite the empty lot, with a white wall so sorrounding it, used as a parking lot by buses and drivers But once...

You cannot find better restaurants down the tourist area... this one is quite acceptable. Dishes are very big. Can be quite busy during noon though.

We found this place easily, but then I wasn't sure we had found the right place, but yes, that restaurant in the small alley is the right restaurant. The food was excellent. We got there early and were easily able to get a table. The menu had photos making the ordering very easy. We had crystal duck livers, sweet and... More

This hard-to-find Restaurant has a very good reputation for its traditional Suzhou dishes. Squirrel Fish and other favorites are more or less on par with, but not as pricey, as what one finds in, for example, the famous Songhelou Restaurant. Service, decor and ambience are also quite good.

This place is a few hundred meters down a dim alley off the main street, but it's not dangerous. You will walk past some small one-room flats at street level. It is worth the walk to get to this restaurant! There were a few foreigners in there, but it was mostly locals. There are several dining rooms, so it's larger... More
