The squirrel fish was the highlight of our meal here. Don't worry, no squirrels were harmed in the preparation of this dish. The price for squirrel fish in most restaurants seems high compared to other fish dishes, but the result is highly labour intensive. The...More

The food is authentic suzhou food but we found it quite oily. The setting is ancient style which was nice. Waitresses were attentive. Overall, found it quite over-rated.

In a charming old part of Suzhou you find this very authentic restaurant tugged in the old small buildings. You can choose to sit in the front where it like a "soup-kitchen" - but very charming/authentic. Or if you are a bigger group there are...More

We were invited to this restaurant by a Shanghai family who eats only here when they visit Suzhou. It was easily the most foreign experience with respect to food we had in China. The food consists of the local Suzhou specialties most of which I...More
