They have opened another location in which the food is awful!
This is just a branding attempt, but the second place is really not up to quality

This place seems to be very popular between expats in Suzhou and well-to-do natives. Service is good and music is not too loud to disturb eating. Had a really good beef stake there anf flushed it down with excellent weissbier. Pizza on the other night was not so good, I mean it was not bad but as used to thick pan pizzas this was not perhaps of my taste. Restaurant is nicely divided to two areas: an eating area and bar area where live music by phillippino band is available. Always worth of checking. In total, nice experience. DC card holders be warned, card was accepted but for some reason it did not work during my visits on two successive weeks.

great food in a good setting. situated right on the intersection of a couple of busy roads. two sides to the place - the restaurant and the bar. The restaurant is great, if at times a little busy, but that means its popular for a reason. great selection of food - thoroughly recommend the Goulash soup. the bar is always busy with the pool table difficult to get on. live music is common with the addition lately of some "sexy dancers".

Always good food, better than average service.
Seems a little pricey for some dishes.
A nice place to eat with some good live music
