Our guide ordered the eggplant, stir fried wild mushroom and cheese. We ordered Garland Chrysanthemum with tofu. The 3 vegetables were tasty. I'm back in kl but still thinking about the egg plant.

I have been in bed with food poisoning for two days after coming here. The "crispy" carp was not crispy at all, in fact it was soggy and most probably reheated as it was a tepid temperature swimming in watery juice when I got it....More

Nice little restaurant serving Dali and Sichuan food. The spicy beef was good and the Bai eggplant was excellent. Fast and fresh. Planning to go back later on the week and try other dishes. Recommended for those wanting to try local dishes. English menu available.

Food was good but not great. A bit too oily and hot chilli for me! Local mushrooms and Dali style egg plant.

I would like recommend you to try er kuai it's local traditional dish thin slices made from rice but don't have taste like rice. And beef with onion was also good. Many varieties from local vegetables.

Decent food, not as good as when it first opened. There are better places to eat, but if you want to eat Chinese on this part of the street, this is the place.
