“Foreign but a favorite with locals”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2012

We were invited to this restaurant by a Shanghai family who eats only here when they visit Suzhou. It was easily the most foreign experience with respect to food we had in China. The food consists of the local Suzhou specialties most of which I never encountered in other restaurants. I can't imagine many westerners wander in here on the spur of the moment. If you are adventurous, give it a try! I tried to write this review last summer but did not get the "go-ahead" from Trip Adviser until now, 7 months later so my memory of what we ate exactly is dim. However I remember trying small eels sizzling in oil, black skinned chicken, and sweet porridge, along with more typical grilled duck and fish. The interior is nice enough but not grand in any way. It is very popular with all tables filled Not sure how you get in if you don't speak Chinese.

“Local cuisine near Humble Administrator's Garden”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2009

We were recommended this local eateries by our guide at H.A. garden. About 200 m across the car park after you exit H.A. Garden. It offers local Suzhou cuisine that was quite clean and nice. The place is not big, but not too crowded too. The decor. was traditional and most service staff speak Mandarin only. Spend less than RMB 150 for 5 people's lunch here. Good value.
