The food here is very good, probably the best western food in Nanning. Presentation is excellent and although the taste is not really that authentic, it is nonetheless delicious.

For anyone in Nanning looking for a taste of Western Food I would recommend this place. Price is reasonable considering the atmosphere and low availability of Western Food in Nanning. Food itself was very tasty.

Food is quite nice. We tried nachos, duck breast, salad. Music and decoration are also good. Over all is above average in NN (as there are not many good ones here.. lol) Customers are mostly local ppl. (So don't expect a quiet dining atmosphere)
