This is a wonderful little restaurant, out of the main hustle and bustle of Old Town but iright next to the waterway running from the mountains. The choice of food is varied from wonderful Chinese dumplings ( I get the vegetarian option) to enchiladas (...More

During my time in Dali, I went to the Blue Gecko several times, because it was that good! They have a big menu with both Western and Asian food, and I tried several things. Their Mexican food was excellent (get the beef Quesadilla), and they...More

Top of town near gate,you will find a car free lane with a stream running down hill. Each side all the way down are restaurants, hotels tucked behind and this beautiful, peaceful cafe- away from the crowds, during the day, not sure about nights. Food...More

Excellent, quirky restaurant that serves something a little different than the typical Chinese fair. Recommend this restaurant for just a coffee (desert, delicious!), lunch or dinner.

Easy to reach (though not with bicycles or motorbikes), we had the fajitas and the burgers, burgers were good, fajitas ok but a little bland for my taste. Staff is caring and nice. Overall a good address in Dali.

After a week of delicious Yunnan food, I was in the mood for something western and followed Trip Advisor's advice. Cafe was very quiet today (it is absolutely tipping it down with rain) but it still managed a friendly atmosphere. Impeccable English from lovely staff,...More
