Like so many mid-range recommendations in China on this site, an overly popular spot. Expect to wait at least 30 minutes for a table at lunchtime. Book ahead for dinner. Or just eat somewhere else -- it's in a mall!

I had already been to their restaurant in Beijing and I was taken by a Chinese friend living in Nanjingto this one. No regrets. We ordered like 7 or 8 dishes and I all of them were outstanding. All at very reasonable prices. If you're going to Nanjing, don't miss this!

This place is perfect for tourists and foreigners, good atmosphere and decent food, but if you really want to try some real nanjing food, trust me, thi place is not the best choice.

After hearing that this was the best rated restaurant for local food in Nanjing my family and I waited 2-1/2 hours yesterday without being seated before finally giving up and going home. Today, after only 2 hours, we got "lucky" to get a seat. After an hour they finally took our order, only to tell us about half of the... More

My Chinese friend booked online and brought me here to experience a recreation of an old Chinese restaurant, complete with traditional music and local Nanjing food such as Meiling Zhou. Maybe it was our choice of dishes, but compared to south China where I live, the food was extremely sweet for dinner time, but still very good after a day... More

The food is good but took forever to serve us. Too much grease and good atmosphere. Is better than other restaurants in the area.

Great food, very good service (speed, cleanliness), good ambience. Can't complain. If there is anything we must complain of : noise level, and queue. We came here three times in 4 days we visited Nanjing. Particular dish : steam fish with star anise . Fragrant & soft texture ... Great dessert (walnut cake). Only dish we can't finish is veggie...

Local Central China cuisine which should be highly attractive to tourists and locals alike. Pricing is reasonable and the food is both good in terms of quality and in quantity. A very dining experience and the service is good.
