The restaurant with the theme "yanyu", meaning "encounter of romance" lures many patrons especially guests hoping to find love. The idea is totally anew to me and first item on the table which caught my attention was the wrapping of the wet issue which resembled...More

When one looks at the decor, I expected to have steep prices and small dishes. I was most pleasantly surprised to see that it was "reasonably priced" fine dining. The dishes were big enough to share and the food was both beautiful to look at...More

This restaurant is situated close to the Crowne Plaza Hotel and Andy's close to the corner of Lianjing Road and Lianjing2nd. Road.This was our first visit to this very classy restaurant but we will certainly be going back for more. The food was excellent and the surroundings simply superb, the whole place simply screams CLASS from the beautiful entrance lobby and elegant staircase which leads you to a comfortable bar area and the restaurant itself.A good menu and drinks list was produced, the menu in both Chinese and English which is unusual for Chinese restaurants in Xiamen. The serving staff were attentive to the correct degree throughout. The orders were immediately forwarded to the kitchen via IPad which meant that there was very little delay in the first of the food arriving on the table. One of the serving staff obviously overheard that we were celebrating a friends birthday and shortly afterwards a complementary plate of celebratory food arrived. A truly excellent find and we will be back in short order! I will attach some photos as soon as possible.
