I ordered the so called "beef" goulash. Wow what a pile of vile, disgusting garbage. And I am being nice. There was only white rubber where there should have been meat.

A newly opened Bistro in the Jing An area. Great breakfasts if you have a serious craving for a big feed after a late night on the town..waffles,sausages,homemade breads,fresh juices and a good strong coffee to light you up. I have breakfast here most mornings and am greeted by the lovely owner Amanda who cheerily tends to her guests. The... More
