Ok food, nothing special

Come here if you've got a craving for Western food, as you can get far better Chinese food elsewhere. Look it was ok, but overpriced (catering to Western tourists). Nice location

My families and I had a hot pot. It was really awesome. The soup is good and the waiters are really nice.

I liked the choice of western and Chinese dishes at this centrally located restaurant, however it is certainly not cheap. The location is a plus however, great for people watching. The staff are attentive if a bit short in English, overall a reasonable place for food, if you don't mind the prices.

We went to this restaurant, which was recommended by our tour guide. Their hot pot is excellent, and they have some good river fish. There is also some spicy cold appetizer, make with chickpeas. Also a sweet pancake. These are all traditional Naxi items.
