We had a poor meal experience here after seeing it was highly rated on TA for western food. I asked for a recommendation between the Tenderloin & burger, and was told the tenderloin was excellent. It must have been in the freezer when this was said; it came out a purple color that this steak lover has not ever seen... More

This restaurant moved a 100 yards from its original location. It's now called THE BREW. It's owned by an Austrian man who is a great host. We tried his own brewed ale and was delicious. Kids loved the pizza. Steak was good. Overall great option for western. It is located in front of the Indian restaurants highly rated in Trip... More

It is really worth to go an extra block to get to this cosy restaurant, right in the city center but away from the busy and very loud streets. A pleasure to have pizza and a glas of wine in a real wine glas!

Seriously everything here was great from the salad to the pizza and everything else we ordered. After being in China for 3 weeks, I really needed to have something more familiar and this was perfect. I highly recommend having lunch or dinner here.

This was a great find. While I ate mostly Chinese and local cuisine, it was nice to have something Western occasionally. This is the spot. GET THE SMOKED DUCK.

Consistency counts! The Alley has hand-made pastas and pizzas, plus the best steak in Yangshuo. Cozy seating, good food, and friendly staff, The Alley has it all.

We had enough of Chinese food, wanted a laid-back no-fuss evening. The restaurant is reasonably priced, located in the less noisy part of west street. Perfect for pizza and beer. Go for the German beer.

The alley does some of the best western food in Yangshuo. The pizzas are amazing and I cannot speak highly enough of the staff. They were extremely accommodating, especially when we visited in large groups that took up almost all of the space indoors, so kudos to them. The prices are slightly higher than some other restaurants nearby, but not... More

The Alley is a cozy restaurant in a pedestrian zone right in the centre of Yangshuo. The grilled tenderloin, home made tagliatelle or the grilled chicken breast with basil pesto are excellent, the beer list holds german and belgian beers but also the affordable chinese option and on weekends you can watch live football.
