We ate delicious pizza and calzone. Marco, the owner, is an Italian man very friendly and funny, he has a lot of histories of his travels around the world. We had a great time there!

I have to recognize that went there for a very very quick stop since i had to take a tour, so i had very limited time and asked for a pizza. The dough was delicious, thin, great flavor and the service was very quick as i requested. The pizza toppings were ok, probably a little bit of salt may had... More

We went three times to eat in Helen's Pizza, not only because it has the best Pizza, Calzone and Vegetarian Korean Food, but also because of the lovely présence of Marco and Ramonito. Also the cheminée is a great place to sit and enjoy a true Latte. Marco can also advise you in China and Visa Extension Issues. Kathrin and... More

We came here on good recommendations and were very disappointed. Not great in any way, definitely better options in Shangri-la.

Definitively the best restaurant you can find in Shangri-La. The food is excellent and the owners are friendly and very helpful if you want to discover the best places of the county!!! The restaurant is run by a true Italian, even if he likes to remind his guests that he is not the boss!!

Helen and her husband, Marco, could not be more welcoming. The food is delicious and the variety (Tibetan, Korean, Italian) provides something for everyone. A great find in Shangri-la.

Marco is a great host, I didn't meet persons truly passionated in this job like him, in last 4 years I'm in China. Calzone was authentic, korean food was fresh, coffee...coffee is real coffee guys! I appreciate the real family atmosphere in Helen's place cause also far from new hip fashion places in Old Town.

This place is almost right across the front parking lot of the old town. Run by a real Italian, Helen's provides excellent food at fair prices. The owner is really friendly and nice, plus much of the cliantele are locals...kind of strange, but still pretty neat. Yeah you are in China, but it doesn't hurt to escape the Chinese food... More

Probably the best (and at a reasonable price) pizza I have had in China. Also noteworthy for the chef/owner (?) who looked after us and chatted through the meal, giving us plenty of cooking tips and China advice. Highly recommend.
