“Excellent local dishes at reasonable prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

The Amayi Naxi restaurant offers excellent local dishes (and a good English-language menu). We really enjoyed the chicken-mushroom-tofu hotpot and the rice in bamboo recommended by other reviewers.

“Tasty Mushroom Chicken and Tofu Hotpot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012 via mobile

Ordered the mushroom, chicken and tofu hot pot, delicious! Was told that no salt has been added into the soup and yet the soup is just as flavourful, no salt required. The chicken meat is tender and juicy and 3 types of mushrooms were being served. The hot pot was especially delicious when served on a cold evening. The portion is pretty big for 2 of us. Do go early to avoid waiting time.

“Very disappointing”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2012

Maybe we ordered the wrong dishes but this was one of the worst places we visited in Lijiang. The mushroom dish was very tasteless, and the chicken soup with tofu looked nothing like the picture, and tasted bland and uninspired. We were very disappointed.

“Real Naxi food in Lijiang”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2011

Not easy to find, but down an alley way between big and small stone bridge on Wu Yi street from the old town square.
Nice staff and service, easy order from its menu, good atmopshere, and popular with locals and visitors.
Enjoyed the rice in bamboo, the potatoes and the hotpot.
