This is exactly what you'd expect from a local eatery. The food was extremely tasty and prepared quickly and in view. You won't get much better value than here. Also, the staff are polite and helpful.

This is a rather small restaurant on the touristy Pingjiang Lu. Service is minimal as you order and pay upfront (common in small Chinese eateries), then find a table and wait for your food. Their dumplings are really great (highly recommended). Other dishes range from average to good. Prices a bit on the high side, especially dessert.

Half of what's on the menu isn't actually available. The staff demand to be paid before serving any food. They scream at eachother, and at their guests. Stay away.

Had the same experience as previous reviewers. Was drawn in by the fact they had English explanations on their outdoor menu. You order by marking a sheet of paper with the menu on it (picture menu provided additionally). Once marked, you hand it in at the register, pay and the food is on your table in minutes. The place was... More

Service is fast, food is delicious and there is a good picture menu with English so that you don't have any... surprises when you order. Would definitely come here again -- highly recommended!

You get given a sheet to tick the box on the dishes you would like (with their english titles). Some don't quite make sence and it is nice to have a little laugh about it. All the dumplings I had were particularly nice, and the mango glutinous rice balls were AMAZE-balls. We returned here a few times during our stay... More

Tried the shrimp dumplings and found them really good. The price was not too bad also. Staff was attentious and service was really fast.

I rarely say things bad straight about a restaurant. This has to be my first time. Simply don't go. Those who believe this is authentic local food and give this hole such a high rating had better identify yourself. I will chase you down. Lol!

This restaurant is located along an old canal and it reflects the typical architecture of the area. You order and pay at the cashier, a waiter brings your order to the table. In our case he brought hot tea varieties, dumpling soup, pan-fried dumplings and a tofu dish. The food consisted actually of snacks that were filling and tasty and... More

This attractive traditional structure houses a restaurant that welcomes foreigner as well as Chinese diners (although most of the people when I was there were Chinese). The bilingual menu is accompanied by photos on the wall to show you what some of the dishes look like. The food is largely local snacks rather than full meals--dumplings, spring rolls, rice bowls,...
