Still recommended with a star in the 2011 edition of the Rough Guide, we dropped in last night to find the place otherwise empty, congealed food and dead flies on the table, and a bored waitress passing time watching the world pass by. A quick Google search confirmed that this place plummeted after changing hands in 2010. Run for your... More

Went due to gushing lonely planet prose. Nothing but westerners eating there in Nov. 2012. Dishes that arrived had no resemblance to photos or menu descriptions. Complaints dealt with by more mediocre substitutions. Overpriced, poor quality food prepared by bored cooks who have a certainty of more suckers coming thru the door every night. Thanks for nothing, lonely planet. Walk... More

Yi Yuan restaurant was a good one till it changed hands some time in 2010. So fellow travellers, please go elsewhere for the food. McFound (some four of them) or Chunji (some six of them) are good names to trust.

I only have twice dinning at this branch which a tourist restaurant at Nanhuan Lu. I thought they featured Sichuan cuisine, but food served is afar from that. Maybe they need to cater to the clients here, as most people coming here are tourists and from abroad. Best Sichuan food with decent environment in Guilin should be served Da Si... More

Following Frommer's advice we went to this restaurant and were very disappointed. Service was very slow and half of the dishes we ordered never came, which was actually good, because the other half tasted lousy. Toilets were dirty, lots of noise from roadside traffic. Worst restaurant of our whole trip. Still many foreigners inside, who probably were just as misled... More

Lonely Planet recommended this place. Three of us flagged a tricycle to get there on the evening of 31/08/2009. We had 4 dishes. We expected to pay around RMB 150.00 but was shocked with a RMB 285.00 bill. The restaurant did a most unusual thing by making us sign our Order in advance. We can only guess the restaurant is...
