Don’t hesitate to go here. The food was very, very good. Service was solid. We had the gung bao chicken (kung pao chicken) which was made to our preference of spice level. Vegetables were crisp and fresh. We also ordered chicken with cashews- again flavorful and full of freshly prepared vegetables. We added the vegetable fried rice which was cooked with a light touch to allow the vegetables to come through. We had water chestnuts for starters and mushrooms stuffed with pork- all tasty. Wine was decent and beer selection was good. Prices were excellent. They also appear to teach cooking classes as a small group came out of the kitchen to enjoy what they had prepared. This is a good place to go if you are looking for familiar flavors or want to be a bit adventurous. The menu displays in English and Chinese and shows pictures- very helpful! Definitely give it a try.

A friendly welcome is always a positive sign! We sat upstairs on the balcony and watched and listened to the colour and movement that is West Street while we dined. Wine was available by the glass, not always an option here. We began with some tasty pork dumplings and shared three other dishes: braised pork and taro, celery, lily buds and cashew nuts and fried water chestnuts and black fungus. All were local dishes and were good choices. The service was friendly and attentive. Recommended.

This is where my friend who was born and raised in Yangshuo and whom I've known for 24 years took us to eat. And we could see why -- it was easily the best food we've had in Yangshuo. Order the pijiu yu (beer fish -- the most talked-about dish in Yangshuo), and you'll understand what all the fuss is about. Anything with water chestnuts is also fantastic. We weren't there in the right season for pumpkin flowers or pumpkin shoots (nangua miao), but I would recommend ordering those if you're there a bit earlier in the year. If you love pork fat, the pork served in bamboo is great -- my son made us order it again the second time we went.

This used to be a nice quaint restaurant, I have eaten here several times in the ‘old days’. But now they are more aimed at receiving big groups, and only have huge tables for 10 pax or more.
The food is still good though, and if you’re lucky you can find a table on the balcony, from where you can watch the river of people streaming by...
