“great taste, great value for money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2014

Excellent range of food on offer, the eggplant was especially good, so as the mushroom and tofu (and I don't normally like tofu!) We ate here twice because it was excellent value for money and the food was very tasty. We shared 3 dishes between two and found that was plenty for us. Service was slow the first time we came, we were sat inside by the front window and it is not an area the staff pass by often so had to go looking for them to order dessert or get the bill, wasn't a big deal though. The second time we sat outside and service was very quick.

“Very nice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2014 via mobile

I ate with my girlfriend and an other couple we mate while tripping. We all ate together from dishes that were in the center of the table. Food was more than ok but the dishes were small.

“They would not serve us at 1pm cause they felt too busy”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2014 via mobile

We just went there on april 6th at 1:00pm. The manager girl was arrogant and just said they did not want to serve us because they felt busy. Did not appologize or said sorry. There are many other restaurants willing to work and offer good service worth trying in yangshuo than encourage this kind of business. ( 3/4 of the tables were finishing their plates, having worked many years in restaurants, they were NOT busy at all)

“Lives up to the hype”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2014

We stayed in Yangshuo for five days and thought about eating here, but waited until our last two days to finally give it a try because each time we came by, we didn't see many other customers. We ate the dishes recommended by the waitress, sitting in a cosy private room with cushions on benches (nice!), and we were blown away. We're not vegetarians, and we loved the flavours and textures of the dishes. We enjoyed the fake lions head meatballs, the battered eggplant... well, every dish was good (although we recommend the eggplant over the pumpkin for the battered vegetables). They give you oranges and peas as appetizers on the house. We were so impressed we returned the next day for lunch. We had more bad than good dining experiences in Yangshuo, so nice to find a decent restaurant at a very reasonable price: around 200-238 CNY for four adults and two children. Gorgeous interior as well.

So fantastic to stumble across this place. China's cuisine is usually very meat dominated and so I ate better here than all the rest of my trip.
