Gilly's is an expat hangout in Xianlin that serves BBQ, pizza, beer, and a variety of other Western foods. It's operated by a cool, friendly American family that will make you feel at home. Highly recommended.

That restaurant is what you imagine to be as a family run restaurant. Cozy, good food. Everyone is friendly and helpful. Next time I will try the grilled meats which Ryan told me about. Can't wait for it.
