I took a gamble on this because I have absolutely no idea where to dine in Luoyang. 7 of us came to Luoyang to visit the Longmen Grottoes. Caught the first morning from Xi'an North and managed to finish Longmen Grottoes by noon. I didn't want to eat street food after Xi'an's experience. No offence but Xi'an's food in general is pretty terrible for chinese standards. There was so minimal reviews and no photos as well but thanks to the positive write ups, I hope I can contribute my share of experience here.
Now...how to get here? Easy...for me, I took bus 53 from Longmen Grottoes all the way to this place. Quite a long ride...probably half hour or more. Where to get down is easy. I just told bus driver that I want to go to Zen Bu Tong Restaurant. Everyone seems to know this restaurant. They're popular but too many bad reviews for me to try them out. Besides, I don't want to eat 24 soup based dishes (their water banquet cuisine). If you want to be sure, I've posted a photo of the bus stop that I got down from. Just show it to the driver. After getting down the bus here, the restaurant is just 50m opposite side of the road. Wangfu Imperial Duck is also opposite Zen Bu Tong. There are 2 chinese lion statues in front of their entrance. Their signboard is in chinese...so I post a photo of their entrance too.
If I remember correctly (sorry, been 1 month+ now), their menu is in English. If not, many pictures to look at from their thick menu book. Prices are all well indicated in Yuan and at the time when I was there early of April 2014, they have many promo prices in the menu. We ordered their famous beijing duck and 6 other dishes. The food in served in large modern white plates and bowls...very nice looking. We ended up paying around 460 yuan for 1 whole duck, 1 whole chicken, 1 spicy pork rib (highly recommended...photos included), 1 vegetable, 1 mushroom, 1 fish and 1 soup. I'm not so particular about pricing as taste is more important but...it's cheap here!
