Authentic dishes, good location and nice enviroment. Found it via tripadvisor and checked also CN app recommendations, both positive. Card is with pictures - convenient for foreigners. We had the chicken, peanuts in vinegar and some bamboo stuff. All delicious and typical anhui taste. Only the "fresh" juices are not recommendable, hence go for beer ; )

When you spend more than a year in China you will find this street a little bit common, I mean it's like another streets in other Chinese Provinces. But if you're new in Chine definitely you have to visit this street and bargain with the sealers.

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.
