Guizhou Province is up in the mountains. It's surrounded by the provinces of Yunnan, Guanxi, Sichuan and Hunan. There is much ethnic diversity in Guizhou, and many different cuisines. The neighboring provinces of Sichuan and Hunan are famous for their love of spicy food, as...is Guizhou.More

Guizhou is a province in the southwest of China. It adjoins Guanxi, Yunnan, Hunan and Sichuan. Like Sichuan, it's cuisine is spicy with a lot of variety in its dishes, due to its ethnic and cultural diversity of the province. Guizhou cuisine its a bit...of an adventure, but most people like it The Wednesday Nighters, who are probably a bit more adventurous than most diners, are quite keen on Guizhou cuisineMore

Saw this on TP, and thought it would be great to try something new. It was indeed interesting, and very tasty -- provided you like Spicy. Guizhou cuisine is like a first cousin to Sechuan. Only criticism would be is fairly pricey in comparison to...comparable quality Taipei restaurants. Still, we'd recommend for a diverse experience. BTW -- We agree with other reviewers, that TP has the name wrong -- the english transliteration should be Qing Tian Xia.More

Guizhou food is spicy, hot and oily akin to Sizuan food. We found this gem by accident walking along Dihua Street where it meets the highway across the river. The restaurant is not big and had only another table of diners. There were 2 hosts...who welcomed us and spoke english - we spoke and read zero mandarin. The host ordered the lunch for us and we were pleased with his choices. The fish was special as it was deboned and mashed up and presented in the same form it was. It had a hint of lime and was delicious. We had local ferns stir fried. The Miao chef was able to increase the "hotness" if we could take the chilly. The hot spicy tofu was delectable with hot rice. Our host persuaded the chef ( the kitchen had closed) to give us a traditional dessert of a batter fried with sesame and a honey syrup. Quite a nice way to end a spicy meal with a smile! Ambience was delightful - there is a small patio with garden at side of restaurant and made it very pleasant. The place is a little bit hard to find as it is not on a main road and it stands quiet away from other shops.More

When in Taipei, you should definitely try street food; much of it is both cheap and extremely delicious. However, if you're in the mood for a nicer sit-down meal, this restaurant can't be beat. We showed up and told the owner, "We like vegetarian food...and seafood," and that one of us liked spicy food and one didn't. He/they did the rest, bringing us several small courses of fresh, delicious food, some a little bit spicy, including vinegar-marinated wood ear and julienned tofu. This was followed by a baked sea bass the likes of which I've never had. I had never had it before, but Guizhou cuisine is evidently fairly similar to that of Sichuan (aka "Szechuan"), which it borders. This means you can get spicy if you want (but you don't have to), including Sichuan peppercorns, the unique ingredient that goes into dishes like Mapo Tofu. Overall: great, friendly service (I speak some Chinese, but the owner speaks English very well), with excellent, unique food. A bit more expensive than street food, but completely worth it. A note on the name: The sign says "東方饌 - 黔天下", which means "Oriental Cuisine/Delicacies - All Things Guizhou" (essentially; that last bit is a bit idiomatic). Coupled with the fact that their website is "www.ocg.url.tw", I believe the best English translation for this restaurant's name is "Oriental Cuisine Guizhou." However, you may also see/hear it referred to as "Qian Tian Xia," which is how the second- and more poetic- half of that name up there is pronounced. "Qian/黔" is an another name for Guizhou province (all Chinese provinces have such alternate single-character names), and Tian Xia/天下"... well, you can find academic papers debating what exactly that phrase means (seriously- try searching for "Tian Xia meaning"). Either way, the name of this restaurant is not "Qianzilv."More

This restaurant is called Qing Tian Xia according to the Lonely Planet guide and other sources, not Qianzilv as currently shown on Trip Advisor. It's located just off the north end of Dihua Street, close to where the street meets the highway across the river....The restaurant specialises in food from rural Guizhou province in southern China, combining fresh rustic ingredients with aromatic spices. Although slightly oily, Guizhou food at its best is wonderful. And so it proves at this discreetly upscale yet intimate restaurant, where English speaking waiters can guide you through the menu. My meal was authentic and memorable, and the prices are very reasonable for food of this quality.More
