We went there for our first dinner in China. We were surprised, the meals were tasty and not too expensive. We suggest the "mutton" which is their specialty! The place is a bit crowdy and noisy (typical China:) ) ...do not expect a posh place!

I had lunch here. The restaurant is located near the Yindang bridge. I had a couple of mutton skewers, the vegan mushroom mix and the sour cucumber. The mutton was very chewy with a lot of fat. The two vegetarian dishes were quite bland. Service...More
