As mentioned by many other people the ribs are tender and delicious (if you like LOTS of cumin), we ordered a 2nd portion! As everyone around us seemed to be having hotpot we ordered a tofu hotpot which we thought to be meat-free as there was no mention of meat in the short English description. It had small pieces of...

Althought its spicy, but... More

It seemed to be a locals spot and the restroom supported that theory. I took it as a good sign that there were no western toilets. We were happy that Maredsous beer was on the menu, our new favorite. We like spicy food and enjoyed everything we ordered. We had both the spare ribs and a heart shaped dish described... More

I love spicy food and the choices were plentiful. My Chinese distributor ordered the fish head with two different sauces, and it was tasty! They have several different beers on tap including Tiger, which is one of my favorite Asian beers. After dinner in the small side room (four tables) we met another friend for a few more beers out...

Great food, easy drinking beer and super fast service in a restaurant with good ambience. Recommend the pork ribs. You do need to reserve a table in advance especially on weekends.

Was recommended here when staying at the 4 seasons. If feels "off the beaten track" and very "local" but once you're in there the food is great and spicy without being overbearing. Enjoy!

One good thing about sites like TripAdvisor is that you are given a leg's up when it comes to venturing outside your comfort zone to search for good food. Especially if you looking for places outside the vicinity of your hotel. DSD (as per the signboard on the main entrance downstairs) is a comfy restaurant in MaoMing Road. Look out... More
