Good selection of local dishes. Food tasted good and reasonably price. However, it gets crowded in the evening and you may have to queue. Service is good as well.

Anhui cooking is never known for it's taste. Anhui cooking is bad in general.... especially the stinking rotten fish... why that is a delicacy is beyond my understanding...... but since you're in Anhui, trying Anhui cooking atleast once is inevitable....

Walked in off the street as the place looked nice, the staff were very helpful, as my partner is vegetarian, food was nice. Only problem was the number of flies when you were eating.

In spite of the fact that the restaurant is located on the tourist-centric "Old Street." the food is really quite good. Preparation is very authentic and flavorful. Some excellent local fare include Hui-style Mandarin fish, Pan-fried hairy tofu, stone frog and stone fungus soup, and braised tender bamboo shoots. The portions are huge (just like everywhere in other Huangshan restaurants)... More

Some of the best food I've had while traveling through Anhui province. I like how you can walk around and see the food and what it looks like before you put in the order. The portions look small, but they are cheap and gives you the opportunity to order and try different things.

I had dinner in the 'sister' restaurant next door to the main restaurant. According to our hotel reception staff the only difference is that portions are smaller (but still more than enough) and choice is limited (but still varied). Food was good with the exception of duck (or goose - waiters can't speak English and explanation was not clear). Sample... More

We ended up eating at Mei Shi Ren Jai, which is the sister (?) restaurant to Lao Jie Di Yi Lou. You won't get much here by authenticity in terms of decor or service, but it's very brightly lit and clean and the hustle and bustle of service and seeing the cooking staff is pleasant. You make your selections on... More

The name means the #1 Restaurant on Old Street and we certaining agree with it. Actually there are 2 restaurants side-by-side, the fancier looking one is LJDIL, and next door is Mei Shi Ren Jai/"Home of Delicious Food", which some call a cafe. We went to MSRJ which is the one most of the reviews described, widely popular and so... More
