Pure Lotus Vegetarian
Now relocated to new restaurant on a bustling corner of West Street, Pure Lotus is owned and operated by longtime Yangshuo expat Australian Malcolm. The popular restaurant has been serving delicious vegetarian food since 2010, offering healthy choice of dishes with the full flavors of spices and herbs.

Andy is himself a great cook and makes excellent pasta, steaks, burgers and salads with homemade sauces. He also makes outstanding home brewed beer, so be sure to ask him about it.

Address: #26 Licun (Moon Hill Village), off 321 National Road in Gaotian Town, Yangshuo
Ganga Impression Indian
With minimalist decor and Bollywood movies playing on a flat screen, the real attraction at Ganga is the authentic and reasonably priced food. A latecomer among Yangshuo restaurants, Ganga, with its Indian host/server, is a great value and consistently excellent lunch and dinner offerings.
Owned by William and Linda, 7th Heaven is one of the oldest Yangshuo restaurants that also offers a cooking school, tours and accommodation. It is mainly a lunch venue, located in a very busy section of town, just off West Street.
Consistently rated one of the top Yangshuo restaurants, Kali Mirch offers Indian fare with style. Everything on the menu is excellent and reasonably priced. Ask if they have Kingfisher beer (often sold out), which pairs perfectly with the spicier dishes. Speaking of beer, The Brew (see above) located right across the street offers home brewed beer if you want to enjoy a drink or two before dinner at Kali Mirch. While one might night think of Indian cuisine in Yangshuo, this is a great alternative to the 10,000 beerfish restaurants that seem to line every street.
