We had one dinner in Luoyang and we had to experience the "water feast". We are aware of the negative comments both on this site and other local sites. It was a good visual experience which cost us less than RMB200 for the 3 of us. The service was unhelpful. I suppose most patrons are tourists and not expected to... More

Been travelling / working in Asia for a few years now, and this place is more trouble tha it's worth. The food may be ok - although the reviews below suggest not, but the service is so painfully awful that I left in disgust and had a very reasonable meal in the restaurant on the other side of the road.

I see some reviews, where western people has been highly disappointed. If you are not used to Chinese cuisine, and are not visiting in the company of people who can guide and explain, then I can understand. Personally I have started to enjoy the true Chinese food more and more. And my dinner at Zhen Bu Tong last night was... More

The location is nice but the food is the worst that I have tested in China! I was curious about the water banquet but has been awful...I and my boyfriend have eaten nothing!

I have the same query as Calvin 266, "how did they get those awards?" If the food is appalling then the service is even worse. The restaurant dressed their waitresses like maidens of the imperial court. However they did such a bad job that the waitresses look comical and ridiculous. The situation was made worse by the waitresses who were... More

We had a late lunch there, and it was overall very pleasant. An authentic Luoyang experience! Compared to other restaurants that we went, this is way and beyond the base standard in Luoyang.

This restaurant has a long history in Luoyang, is unique in its own way with decor of old China and wait staff in period costume. The food is somewhat bland but one can say that's healthy, unlike most food that can be oily and high salt content. The locals do patronize this restaurant as well. We ordered the signature dish...

We went because 1. An acquaintance from Luoyang highly recommended it 2. A local taxi driver also highly recommended it. The menu was pretty long and we didn't know what to pick. In the end, We ordered the pork belly with preserved vegetables and a pot of tea for 65¥. It wasn't bad but it wasn't delicious either. The tea... More

Based on raving reviews on the "water banquet" of this restaurant, we gave it a try, but this was the worst diner in one month China travel. Definitively overrated in the guide books.
