Great little place, we had a chicken burger and pizza, both were very well cooked, the chicken burger was huge and was all grilled chicken breast and not processed meat as it normally is! If you are looking for a change from Chinese/ local food this is a great option. If you get a seat by the window the views... More

Third time in Lijiang and I always make a point of coming here. Reasonably priced beer and good coffee for Lijiang, with view over a small square to people watch. Good spot for a late afternoon to catch up on email etc. Never eaten here so cannot comment on the food.

We went here for my birthday, not the most fancy place, but we are backpackers and that sounded like a nice option. I heard that they have good piazzas here but I didn't expect much. However, the pizza was really really good. Thin crust that was made right and the toppings were great. Not Italy, but probably the beat pizzas... More

Great place for western tourists with English speaking staff and English menu. Good for breakfast, lunch, coffee or beers. Chinese tourists do not go there. Depending on what you want or need, that could be positive or negative. ;) I liked it a lot.

A good place to stop if you want some western food. The restaurant is upstairs and has excellent views on a small square and the old rooftops. We ordered pizza and hamburger, both delicious!

My family and I will come here for lunch. They have huge burgers here and will cook them to order. The pizza is super thin and crispy and has a nice flavor to it. The restaurant is on the second floor overlooking a square. The steps are quite steep so one needs to keep a close eye on your children.

I ordered the Chicken garlic sandwich. It came with a sliced apple. It tasted okay. If you're looking for a break from Chinese street food in Old Town, this is a decent option with a nice 2nd floor view. However, it's not actually amazing food. But sometimes a taste from home is nice while traveling in remote areas.

N's Kitchen was a little hard for us to find, but after a few detours, we stumbled upon it. Lijiang Old Town can feel like a maze and most online maps use only English or only Chinese which can add to the complication. We got a tomato & cheese salad with pizza & felt it was just OK. We've had... More

N is great, he has spent years perfecting breakfasts, burgers and other western goodies - you will not be disappointed. Go through the area where you pay to get into the old town and follow the road for a couple of hundred metres - you'll come to a small square - look up and in front and you'll find him.... More
