“Western Bar”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

We found this to be rather one dimensional. This is a western bar with an exclusively western menu and while we were there only western clientele. We went as I had a hankering for pizza and we were told this was the best. For me personally the pizza was too crispy the base is v thin and crispy, but some folk may love that. My man had the burger which he adored, awfully meaty with skinny MaccyD style fries. They had a plethora of beers on offer from 10y (local Liquan) to 60y (Rochefort10). Our dinner was 100y with beers each so you can't complain.

“Average quality food”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

Having read about the quality pizzas served at The Alley, we had high expectations of the food. Sadly, the pizza was mediocre and I thought the ones served at Pizza Hut in China tastes better. The pan fried chicken breast dish was pretty good though.

“Super food, nice guys...one of the best experiences in China”
Reviewed July 10, 2012

We've been travelling for almost 2 month but to be honest with you we have never found a better place in China where we felt so welcome! That it is run by a mixed European & chinese team makes it even more perfect - such cool and nice guys!

“A Touch of Western in Yangshuo”
Reviewed June 5, 2012

For those people who have been traveling in China for a bit and need a "steak break", this is DEFINITELY the place to go. Excellent steaks, great beer selection and ultra-friendly staff. It is in the middle of a lively part of town - sidewalk dining is recommended so you can watch the endless parade of people while you enjoy excellent food!
