The atmosphere at this restaurant was lovely, but the food was only so-so, and overpriced, especially given that the menu is on the wall, you order cafeteria style, and nearly everything is prepared and lukewarm.

OK yes, it's a bit too tourism involved and price is expensive for the ordinal meals like this, but in China there are not so many clean and tasty restaurants like this.
