Hospitality at it's best

Marco gave us a warm welcome with his smart, little boy on his knees, sitting in front of a wooden oven. Offers best pizza, delicious pasta and a red wine out of a big can. Amazing! And for the next day, he prepared the best yak steak we ever had! He is a very good storyteller, so the hours run.

Fresh ingredients, as much locally sourced as possible. The owner, Marco, has been living in Shangri-la since the stone age and is a great source of information. So it's worth going straight to Helen's Pizza Ristorante on arrival before making any next move. Marco is a great host too, many stories, it's worth going just for him.

Provide a most varied menu of dishes from Korea to Italy. A small restaurant with a big heart. The meals are well prepared and tasty.

After being away from the USA for more than 2 weeks it was nice to have a great piece of pizza. Never did I expect to have such wonderful Italian food in China. Marco is the best at charming the customers while his wife cooks her heart out in their kitchen. Their new baby is beautiful and his dad is... More

Very friendly - the owners, Marco and his wife, are welcoming and friendly. Marco has lots of great stories about his travels and life in Shangrila, and in a town where practically no English is spoken by anyone and it is difficult to find information it was helpful to hear what Marco recommended in terms of getting around town.

We ate 2 times at Helen's pizza and we enjoy Marco stories about life in general and life in China. The pizza is great...good quality even for an Italian traveler. Also they have limoncelo - traditional Italian drink. I would like to have an italian espresso but Marco told me that they don't have this. Anyway, best pizza in China... More
