Fine...just not fine dining....but that is offset by the exquisite setting....the Li River is beautiful....even magical....a must see if traveling to China

There seems to be some confusion on some of the reviews here, as they are about the cruise and not the restaurant. The restaurant is highly recommended by the locals, so we gave it a go. . . however, we find the food is average but with the price quite reasonable, it's hard to fault them.

Beautiful scenery and well worth the time. Terrible food-eat beforehand. This is a 1/2 day trip more than enough so do not combine with raft trip in same spot. Raft rides are a rip off- keep stopping for you to buy something and must sit on chairs and wear life jackets the whole time.

Amazingly the Shangri La Hotel recommended this restaurant for a anniversary meal. It was pretty down market with cramped tables, smokers everywhere, no air conditioning. The whole place was however packed. The reason was presumably the location - opposite a lovely lake (though not visible from the restaurant), the deliciousness and authentic food, the very reasonable price and the cooking of seafood outside. A real contrast of experiences. Great food in an over crowded setting in a lovely location. Would go again and recommend for a standard and cheap night out. Not for a special occasion though.

The best thing was that it is open late and clearly enormously popular and loved by locals. My tour guide recommended it and it was adjacent to my hotel anyway; mind you the one in my hotel was starkly empty while this one thrummed with life by a busy connecting street, with outdoor vendors before large open ground floor hall and upstairs rooms. Waiters very sweet and friendly, some with excellent English, and menus are in English. Food is uniquely local, eg. Li River fish, snails and fungi etc; I had goose liver, whitebait and was given what seems like more -- perhaps five courses in all and all for what I paid for a very ordinary Western-style lunch in Beijing.
