“delicious and friendly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2013

Helen and her husband, Marco, could not be more welcoming. The food is delicious and the variety (Tibetan, Korean, Italian) provides something for everyone. A great find in Shangri-la.

“At home!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2013

Marco is a great host, I didn't meet persons truly passionated in this job like him, in last 4 years I'm in China.
Calzone was authentic, korean food was fresh, coffee...coffee is real coffee guys!
I appreciate the real family atmosphere in Helen's place cause also far from new hip fashion places in Old Town.

“Real Italian Cooking”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

This place is almost right across the front parking lot of the old town. Run by a real Italian, Helen's provides excellent food at fair prices. The owner is really friendly and nice, plus much of the cliantele are locals...kind of strange, but still pretty neat. Yeah you are in China, but it doesn't hurt to escape the Chinese food for a little bit. It is definately worth it.

“Amazing Pizza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

Probably the best (and at a reasonable price) pizza I have had in China. Also noteworthy for the chef/owner (?) who looked after us and chatted through the meal, giving us plenty of cooking tips and China advice. Highly recommend.
