We tried to get an evening table in this famous restaurant but would have had to wait an hour and a half on a weekday it is so popular. Do we booked for the following night at 7pm and were ushered straight in to a large table in the main ornate dining hall. Clean tablecloths and hot lemon water served as we looked through the picture menu with titles in English and Chinese. We chose a bamboo steamer of nine mixed meat dumplings and one of five shellfish dumplings. These were beautifully made like flowers and really ten in total would have been enough especially as it was a good idea to order two vegetable dishes to go with them, the Lotus Root and mixed veg fish was really excellent. We drank two large bottles of Chinese beer. A great meal in a great place for 19 yuan - amazing value.

This is a beautiful restaurant with good food and excellent service. It is crowded and you may have a long wait. We made reservations in person and came for dinner at 5:40. It was busy but we had a beautiful table in an old grand room. (Much nicer looking than the room where most foreigners were put.)

We had dumplings, pork ribs, and shrimp. The dumpling were great and the rest ok. Two beers and water. Total was 295 RMB. Servers has translating phones and were helpful. Menu has pictures and English.

The restaurant is huge and toilets very interesting and nice. Very nice evening overall. If you don't reserve it is not as nice.

Make sure you eat here first, because you will want to eat here again...and again....and again. The food is out-of-this-world delicious. They have many different rooms to eat in, varying decor, each lovely. They have a small exhibition kitchen where you see the dumplings being made. We ate there twice and were able to sample both dumpling offerings. This is the place you want to be.

Typical average wait is one hour but the restaurant interior decoration and the food (sliced noodles and dumplings) are amazing and worth the wait.
