We had a nice meal at Tristans, though we did not enjoy people smoking inside. The place is a bit tight, the decor is minimalistic but colorful and you can surely get a feel of a Mexican eatery. I won't say the food is amazing,...More

Tristan starts as an unassuming tex mex restaurant but as soon as you enter and strike a conversation with the owner (Tristan) you are sure to be in for a treat. Great selection of beers, that’s for sure. They do make a mean margarita !...More

They were great and Taco Tuesday is a good deal!! The owner was a super nice guy too! If you are looking for a home away from home while traveling in China, this is your spot!

I like the food, but this is small place and guests and manager smoke inside - so it is very unpleasant for a non smoker

Glad you liked the food!! We do allow smoking inside, as is the norm for bars in China (and most of the rest of Asia). If you don't like smoking, we also deliver our full menu via wechat.

We miss you, man! Hopefully we'll see you soon in Vietnam for the wedding. We'll always have a shot of bourbon waiting for you at the bar!

I've been in GZ for about two months or so. The food reminds me a little of home. The tacos are ok but the sauces makes it really good. The portions are huge, the sauces are concocted from his twisted (yet tasty) imagination and the...More
