“In my opinion one of the best Chinese restaurants”
Reviewed March 26, 2014

It is strange, I have been eating in this superlative restaurants maybe hundred times but I did never write about it. It shall be a sort of egoistic thing , try not to disclose the amazing quality, service and decor of one , for me , of absolutely the best restaurants in the whole world
There have been times when I knew pratically the menu by heart , still the menu in this restaurant is constantly updated following the seasonality of the products so to grant all customers the freshest and the best
Their signature dishes as Dongpo Pork (just the way it is presented it merits 7 stars) or Beggar's Chicken and Songsao soup (the waitresses will explain you the stories behind this amazing recipes) are alone worth the visit still here the choice is vast and you can be sure that anything you will pick , it will simply be great
I will never forget the crunchiness of their bok choy with garlic and pork, the smooth spiciness of beef tendon in bean curd , the crab roe soup with tofu, the mixed vegetables ( oh they are so delicious ) the mushrooms when in season, the cod, the beef cooked to perfection
Add to it prompt and careful service, a nice decor mixing old traditional Chinese with classy contemporary look, a deep and seriosu wine list and some of the best teas to be found
Not enough , as this restaurant is a mere 20 meters away from Westlake , the possibility after dinner to take a stroll on one of the nicest spot of China
I miss 28 Hubin road

“Good food, good ambience”
Reviewed March 25, 2014

This restaurant lives up to its reputation. Be sure to try the Beggars chicken, and Dong Po pork. Be prepared to pay good money for this though.

“ok not great”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

If you want chinese food. this is a good place but the food was just ok. I was recommended this place by my guide but we tasted better food in beijing. The pork was way too salty.

“authentic HangZhou cusine”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

We ate there during our visit to the West Lake. One must try the honey ham in bread. It's very good and different from the ones I had. Probably needs to make reservations before going. It was packed during the lunch time when we visited.
