Situated on edge of Pearl river on Shamian island sounds idylilc but food and service poor and we were charged EXTRA for serviettes and water.Food utterly bland and almost inedible. Suggest you eat at nearby Victory hotel Chinese restaurant on level three. Very good food and fair price.

You can eat outdoors at tables on the embankment of the Pearl River with great views. Staff attentive, food average but not expensive. On a warm day or evening it’s a good place to hang out and take photos. 4 stars, mainly for the location.

Began with what we believed would be French Onion Soup. The pathetic onion soup showed up with no cheese on top (Menu says Onion Soup with Cheese). When we asked about the cheese they said they sprinkled some on the soup. We also ordered a salmon and asparagus dish that was supposed to have a Hollandaise sauce. No sauce. The... More

Very beautiful setting with a very friendly staff. Food was really good and some of it was vey "interesting". It was also very reasonable priced. Five of us were able to eat until we were stuffed and still had food on the table for less than $50 US!!!

My husband and I ate here on a Friday night. We stayed at a hotel in Shamian Island, and it was raining so we didn't want to venture far for dinner. We ordered from the barbecue grill menu: lamb, squid, chicken wings, oyster mushrooms, and corn. The chicken wings were great (thanks to the waitress for recommending this), mushrooms and... More

We visited on a Wednesday afternoon and it was fairly busy but I have been told that weekends are chaos! there is a cafe where one can purchase very a ornate coconut drink festooned with flowers and umbrellas! Fairly fun place to visit.

The food is average and that's giving it more credit than it deserves. We were served wine that was corked, it was completely undrinkable but they refused to give us our money back. Terrible service, I will never come back.

Rose Garden of Shamian is must see, just darn nice thing to do on a day off. Check it out. Be weary of the wedding groups that mob the island on the weekend - go early to avoid that.

The grill salmon fish is nice. Also try the spring chicken but never order the spaghetti carbonara coz it aint western style at all. Its located along the river of gz. You should come before sunset for the scenery but not yoo late coz quite a lot of mosquito unless u wear jeans.

Right by the river on Shamian Island, good service, a wide range of Chinese, Asian, and European food. Great place to just relax and soak in the serenity of the island amongst the madness of the city. Staff all helpful, friendly, and English speaking.

Thank TWP64
