“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

Food was really good. Setting lovely up on the balcony. Service average, had to go inside to get their attention three times over dinner.

“Fairly average overall”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

The food was fine but a bit bland (we had better at our little hotel, the Li River Retreat). The service was rather surly but perhaps the waitress was just having a bad day. Eating on the balcony, it was interesting to watch all the goings on in the street below.

“Loved it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

Ate here 2 out of 4 nights during our visit! Excellent food, excellent value, excellent service, excellent location. It is located on the 2nd floor and we sat out on the patio overlooking West Street. Fun people watching and overall enjoyable experience. Wish I was there right now!

“food ok, service bad”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

There was only us and one other table of westerners eating there so very quiet at main dinner time. No one appeared to want to serve us at any point. Food arrived in stages, had to ask for the rice 3 times. Tables left dirty and uncleared from cooking groups. Food actually tasted good but I wouldn't go back.

“Great choice - eat on the balcony”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

A find due to Trip Advisor. The location is on busy West street which is the main drag for shopping and dining. The benefit is that the restaurant is upstairs above all the commotion. In fact, sitting on the balcony gave us a great view of all the action, colors and sounds without the crowds. The food was fabulous - one of our best meals on the trip and certainly the best value. We had local beer - Liquan and local food - Yangshuo Roast Duck (as good as Peking duck but about 1/4 of the price - Yangshuo Fried Rice (the best fried rice of the trip) - gong bao chicken (spicy with hot peppers, peanuts and vegetables) and pork fried dumplings (they were supposed to be the appetizer but in China you get served whichever meal is ready and we got these last). Great food - and a great price - all this including beers for about $24.
