The restaurant is atmospheric, the dishes are good and the staff is quick. English picture menu available. We had the cheese salad, beef in plum sauce, mixed vegetables, braised fish and the mulberry yogurt as dessert. All were delicious!

This small resto is extremely busy so be prepared to wait. Good local food served in a rustic wooden house, attentive yet hectic service. Pricing is good, ambiance is better

The food's alright, though not the best in all of Dali. Food was mostly oily. Oil is not nutritious. Either hire a different cook or don't use that much oil.
