Good food, Great server

Our family of three went to Ryleys for lunch. We sat at the seat by the window. We enjoyed the vegetable lasagna--great flavor, if a little bit soupy. Garlic bread was excellent. Chocolate "milkshake" was more like chocolate milk--little hint of real ice cream involved. The lady who served us was... read more

I liked very much the design of this place. The food was good but the highlight for me was the delicious hot chocolate on a cold rainy afternoon!

Ducked in to this cute little cafe on West Street while spending the last of our Yuan before heading home. Excellent food, decent prices, good people watching if you set near the front, and best of all an excellent toilet for the weary western woman!

We went there just to have each a latte and a milk shake. As in many places in China it took the waitress 10-15 minutes to prepare one latte. Means you might have to wait for half an hour even for simple orders. Latte and shakes were ok. not great, but ok.

We went to Ryleys because of all the great reviews on TripAdvisor and we were a bit disappointed. It was fine but it was nothing to rave about. The interior decor is fun and the food is fine but we liked many of the other local restaurants better.

I would have scored a 5/5 but we wished they had a better balcony for eating/drinking/watching the world go by. We did try to sit at their front table but were asked to move for some repair work. We moved upstairs but you cannot see the front street from the balcony area. A minor problem, certainly, but it is something... More

The best food we've had in china. Simply outstanding, especially the lasagne. I'd say its the best lasagne I'be ever had. My wife agrees. Lovely ambience, great for people watching. Don't believe anyone who says theres a better place to eat in yangshuo - there isn't. Simply superb food and incredible service.

NIce little restaurant right on West Street. Prices are reasonable and the staff is very friendly and efficient. I had the Caesars Salad and it was excellent. I actually had it two different times. Highly recommend it for a good inexpensive place to eat.
