We ate here two times during our weekend stay in Yangshuo. It's good to find a western restaurant with a readable menu. The first time i ordered a cheese burger, the meat was tasty but too salty. The second time I ordered a Margarita pizza, thin and crispy, nothing special but in China it is special. The waitress was very... More

We're living in Yangshuo for a year and love to eat here once in a while. The owner is a friendly man and always in for a small talk. Beyond this the food is just soooo good. After eating Chinese food almost every day it's great to occasionally eat something else with a good and strong taste. Especially the pasta's... More

Had the blue cheese and bacon tagliatelle, the alley pizza, and a garden salad. The pasta dish is the best we've had after 10 months traveling in Asia and Africa. I'm pretty sure the tagliatelle was home-made. The pizza and salad were also very good. Prices reasonable for western food in China (about 40rmb per main).

At the point that we reached Yangshuo, our family had been travelling in China for about two weeks. We were travelling with teenaged kids, and we were all ready for a change of pace from the normal Chinese fare. Perhaps we just wanted a taste of home, but The Alley did the trick. Nice, thin crust, Italian style pizzas, fresh... More

After touring China for a month we thoroughly enjoyed the Western menu options at this lovely cafe. We ate dinner there twice last week. The dessert and hot chocolate were also delicious. Good food, reasonable prices and attentive but not annoying service. We happily recommend The Alley.

I had a burger and chocolate cake. It was nice to get western food, but appart from that it wasn't so good. The meet in the burger didn't taste good at all, neither the cheese or the bread that didn't look very fresh. The chocolate cake was OK but not anywhere close to be good... Same menu 2 days later...

After 4 months in China I can really say that this restaurant was one of the best I've tried and for sure the best one in Yangshuo for western food. They have a variety of pasta, pizza, hamburgers and others. We couldn't help myself to come back and eat again there. The blue cheese pasta was amazing as well as... More

Tired of Chinese food after 3 weeks in China and this place was an amazing find. I would still have scored the food a 5 in a western city. Pasta with chicken & blue cheese delicious. Everybody enjoyed their meals. Lots of choice for both food and drinks.

We went here three times during our stay in Yangshou. The food is very nice, they have great coffee and drinks and the service is top notch. The owner was more than happy to help with anything, and even offered us some tasty off-the meny lasagne one day. Would definately recommend this place if you've had enough rice for a... More

I visited the place with my girlfriend. We ate the cheeseburger with blue cheese and the chicken burger with Parmesan. The chicken was hard and dry but tasted good. The burger was fine. French-fries were a disappointment. Too costly
