Had one time dinner here and choose the hot pot. Was quite a fun way of enjoying dinner. Also tried a Chinese wine which smelled of strawberries but to drink it was close to vinegar. Staff were as helpful as they could, not speaking much English and we only having our translating apps on our smart phones. Dinner was quite good though, the Yak meet combination plater was much bigger than we thought. The small one serves enough food for 2 people having a meal.

We came here for lunch and had a Chinese meal. Why would anyone come to Lijiang to eat Italian?! The fresh fish was beautifully cooked with tofu, yak meat fried with green peppers was tasty, mushroom with chicken was delicious and salmon sushi tasted as expected! The service was prompt and courteous. They also stocked a good selection of beer - 3 different brews of Shangri-la as well as the more common Dali beer. A satisfying meal was enjoyed by all. And they also provide free wi-fi.

I did not try the Italian food and rather chose from the Chinese menu. Nothing special indeed.
I had much better meals in the multi cook snacks places along the winding lanes of Lijiang.

Got to know this restaurant from the in-house video of Indigo Lijiang. On the last day at Lijiang, after all the local food, I decided to try this. Surprisingly, taste was good, atleast it suit my taste. An European couple came in and had no difficulty ordering as the menu are
