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. Wanting to be polite I had a few mouthfuls of what was bones and warm fish then had to leave it because it was vile.

The sizzling beef was not sizzling it was also just warm and rice was also horrid. Couldn't eat them as it really was disgusting.

Avoid avoid avoid unless you want to be ill.

We came here on the recommendation of the Lonely Planet (which admittedly can be hit and miss). The menu had some local specialities that we went for: crispy carp and sizzling beef. The carp was soggy, tasteless with very little meat and probably re-heated. The "sizzling" beef was served on iron plate but was luke warm, chewy and definitely re-heated. Both dishes were swimming in a dull watery sauce. Even the fried rice with assorted vegetables was bad - unseasoned with chunks of undercooked potatoes and onions. We've been travelling around China for 3 weeks and this is the first bad meal we've had! Inedible. My wife now has diarrhoea. This place needs shutting down.

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.
