Staff are all delightful and friendly and some speak v good English. Please go! It's not Pingyao's biggest and most popular restaurant for no reason. V reasonably priced too!

Enjoyed great food here! Best we've had in China so far. 120 Yuan for 2 mains and a pot of tea. The cats are a bit friendly but harmless.

This restaurant is located on one of the main streets of the old town of Pingyao. It has been tastefully decorated and the interior is quite cozy (and spotlessly clean), with nice big wood tables and charming lighting. Second floor feels particularly warn and comfortable. The menu is not huge but all the food we have tasted (having taken 3... More

This little restaurant really surprised me with the quality of the food. We went back three times and tried different dishes , every one better then the next! Lovely local staff in a beautiful little town. Probably the best food we have had in chin so far! The local noodle dish and the salt and pepper chicken were exceptional!

This property is a hotel and also their restaurant open for public. The restaurant feeling and ambience was lovely and serene. Not so much decoration like any other Chinese restaurant around (and in China). They have bilingual English and Chinese menu.. if I am not mistaken.The food selection they have everything is all about local cuisine and some were also... More

Despite what the Lonely Planet says, the menu is not available in English. However, it is a picture menu presented on an iPad and the servers speak enough English to answer questions. Pleasant atmosphere and good wifi signal. Most mains cost ¥22-¥30. Not the cheapest in town, but tasty, tidy and friendly.

This is a nice restaurant with lots of wooden tables and chairs and an old style feel. They have an iPad where you place your order - great idea other than they have only translated half the menu - you can order the other items but it's a bit of a guess as to what it is. We we're put... More

An enjoyable dinner: great food, excellent service, decent prices, cold beer, wonderful ambiance. What more can you ask for? Stopped for a beer, liked it so much decided to order dinner. Waited about 10 minutes for a window booth. The table featured an inset millstone and tiny water garden with floating leaves (do not eat the goldfish or hand wash... More

Ate here a couple of times as we were staying here. Food was always tasty with big servings. You order via an iPad, which has pictures of all the dishes, and some even have English descriptions which was very useful. Only downside is that everyone smokes in the restaurant, so if the doors are closed because of the weather, it... More

The restaurant here was very good. Service was quick, beer cold and food was very good. The Pingyao beef is like a salty corned beef and was different but very good.
