We visited on the recommendation of our tour guide - something you can never be sure about. But it did not disappoint. We were keen to try many of the local specialties that we had not wanted to eat from the food stalls around the city.. stuffed snails, beer fish, crispy duck, traditional rice wine, etc. We came a little...

After reading positive reviews we decided to try this restaurant, the group made up of one British adult and three Chinese adults. We had a sweet-and-sour pork, lemon chicken, fried choi sum, broccoli fried in garlic, fish-fragrant aubergine and a pigeon soup. The food was just not up to scratch. Though they say they are a proper Chinese restaurant, the... More

From the balcony of Cloud 9, you get a great view of West Street and the karst pillars. It's only a couple of floors up, so you're close enough for people watching, and in the evenings there's a lot going on, especially during high season or at weekends. Go around sunset, so it's not too hot to sit outside. There's... More

We had heard great things about this restaurant, but weren't overly impressed with the food. It was mid-afternoon, so maybe we just were 'between shifts'.

This restaurant does really really tasty Chinese food (mix of local and Sichuan) and very affordable prices. The staff were friendly and speak very good English. It is located right in the hub of the massive tourist trap of West Street in Yangshuo. But it is upstairs with outdoor tables looking out onto West Street. So you are right at... More

We enjoyed a private session, together with our son of 5 years old. After visiting the local market, we prepared 3 dishes (we were offered a menu to choose from, but it was ok to ask for another dish.

Great location right on West Street. Foreigners here, but then again, you might want something other than street food. Service good, somewhat of a variety of food- we have a vegetarian in our party which suits our group inChina.

We went here for dinner on 4 of our 5 nights in Yangshuo and took the cooking class as well. We found it challenging to find a nice Chinese restaurant in central Yangshuo between all the Western places, and this one was recommended to us by our hostel. It didn't disappoint and so we kept coming back! Prices are reasonable... More
