Our best meal in Hangzhou. Great food, good ambience, cheap prices. We came for Christmas lunch after our visit of nearby Lingyin Temple at 1115 and it was half empty. The place was full by 12noon. No taxis waiting around when we left (we had hired a private car). The fish head (a little spicy) was amazing. Very popular with... More

Located in a rustic building by small pond on the way to Longjing tea fields. The chicken and pork roasted in tea was fabulous. We had 2 servings of it. The fish and dried shrimp porridge in hot stone wad very good in the cold weather. Diced sting beans stir fried with pork was delicious. Worth going.

One of the best Hangzhou Cuisine restaurant in Hangzhou. I always take friends who came from other city to have dinner at LvCha(LongJing Road). It's the head restaurant, has a nice view rather than other branches.

I went to Hangzhou with my husband in early Oct and we tried a number of Hangzhou style cuisine. We liked the LvCha the most. First, the environment is great. We had a window side table, just next to the pond with sunshine and wind. The mood is excellent. Secondly, the food is good. We ordered the coconut chicken soup... More

The place is very popular and is heaving with people. But they are happy people, being well-fed! You absolutely need to have a Chinese speaking person in your group: you order by ticking your choices on a printed list, which is only in Chinese. There are some boards on the walls with photos of menu items but I think it... More

Very large selection- unfortunately only in Chinese and most of the staff, although very kind and trying their best, could not speak any English. They however looked around and found a restaurant guest who spoke English and French who walked us through the menu. The dumplings were very good, but the pork was boringly dry. The bread with ice cream... More

Although need to take taxi, it's value for money. Can eat local tasty food, as well as some western style food, such as bread with fresh fruit. Dish is special and tasty, especially vegetable, always fresh, crisp and tasty.

If visiting Hangzhou would immediately remind you Dragonwell tea, then the restaurant Green Tea could be treated as a great compliment of your trip, Located in the district Dragonwell, with Dragonwell tea plants surrounding. Although food is not as local as the other well-known Chinese restaurants you can have in Hangzhou, the food is of wide varieties, from typical Hangzhou... More

This restaurant situated in the heart of Longjing Tea plantations. From the distance it looks like it is built on the water. Very beautiful setting with the backdrop of Longjing green Tea bushes. When you go there try to go earlier. If you want a table straight away be there either around 11.30am (Lunch) or 5.30pm (Dinner). Other times you... More
