“Should be number 1 in Nanning”
Reviewed 19 March 2013

Spent a few days in Nanning on business, eating at both western and local restaurants, but this is by far the best place to eat. The menu is varied, from Pasta and Pizza to Steak dishes, the have a few international bottled beers and the environment is bright and friendly. Going back again tonight, so enough said.

“Great food, friendly service and nice atmosphere”
Reviewed 9 February 2013

Visiting Nanning for a few nights and after having no options for western food for the past month, I was desperate for a good steak. Unfortunately we were visiting just before Chinese New Year and most of our other options has already closed down for the holidays. We had a recommendation for The Here so we went to to check it out.

The restaurant itself is interesting, a stand alone building with entrance and kitchen on the 1st floor, Italian food on the 2nd and then hot pot on the 3rd. But the atmosphere was nice, comfortable seating and friendly service.

The menu looked quite extensive, from pasta to pizza, chicken and duck to veal and steak. Our table ordered the New Zealand rib eye (one with zuchini and mash the other was with a risotto from memory), veal, chicken and a pasta. All were pretty good, it's not high end cuisine like you might expect back home, but for Nanning and China, it was great. More like good quality home cooking! The steaks themselves were good... thick cut NZ rib-eye and they were cooked perfectly (ordered 5/10... this is how you order a steak in China, I think 5 is a medium rare) and tasted great. The zuchini and sauce did look a bit odd, but it tasted great.

The veal was tender and delicious, the chicken dish generous and great flavours. Pasta looked cheesy, but didn't get to taste it.

They had some nice beers as well, not cheap, but great to have a full flavoured European beer finally. Looked like some ok wines on the wine list, plus had a few whiskeys and bourbons for after if you desire.

Prices were reasonable, expensive compared to local food, but not extravagant. Most mains were around 100CNY each.

“Good Italian Comfort Food”
Reviewed 15 December 2011

The location is behind the Admiral City Mall in a separate building. The restaurant is a 3 story building. The interior is like a cafe on the first floor, a hip coffee shop on the second floor, and a diner on the third floor. There is an outdoor seating area and WIFI is available.

The menu has Italian and Mexican food. I went with the Italian.

The balsamic vegetable salad had a nice presentation in a large glass. There were many different types of fresh veggies and it was more than just salad. The soup was recommend from another reviewer and it was very good. The lasagna comes in a very large dish and was tasty.

The bill was accurate.

I would definitely return to The Here for the food I miss from home.

“Pizza Time”
Reviewed 2 November 2011

One of the best pizza places in Nanning, China. The food there is good, service good, and a good place. I love the pizza there and the cheese they use there. The patato wages are just as good as it can get. All in all, i am a Pizza Freak and i love the place. If anyone is asking for a good pizza place for a price then i would really recommend this JOint.

“Great atmosphere, ok food, but possibly best western in Nanning, not good service.”
Reviewed 5 August 2011

Wish the service people could be a bit friendlier and more thoughtful. We come with 4 kids, so 6 people every time, so you'd think we'd get good service but it never turns out that way. Seem mote catering to couples.
