The best place in town for burgers, steaks and German sausage


Formerly known as The Alley, The Brew is one of the longest living Yangshuo restaurants under the guidance of Andy - a long-time Yangshuo resident from Austria. 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: #27 Cheng Bei Lu, Yangshuo - Across from Ganga Impression Indian Restaurant

LUNA

Beautiful views of Moon Hill from the rooftop

Luna is an elegant rooftop Yangshuo restaurant at Yangshuo Village Inn offering authentic Italian and Chinese fare since 2008. Trained by Italian chefs, Luna also creates beautiful pastries and desserts. With the most scenic views in Yangshuo and an outstanding seelction of imported wines, Luna is the most romantic venue among Yangshuo restaurants.

Address: #26 Licun (Moon Hill Village), off 321 National Road in Gaotian Town, Yangshuo

DEMO

China craft brews, great food and views of the Li River

While better knwon as a brew house, Demo offers outstanding pizza, bagels and sandwiches under the expert hands of Emma, a British native. See full details about Demo's craft beer tap lineup in our Bars section

Address: Long Tou Shan wharf, under the covered walking marking street Yangshuo

LUCY'S

Local family run since 2006


One of the longest-running YAngshuo restaurants, Lucy's became an institution with backpackers and long-time expat residents. Her breakfasts are particularly good as are her desserts (we recommend the apple crumble). Lucy's sister and mother still run her restaurant with friendly service. Sit outside on the sidewalk or upstairs in a cosy more private room.

Address: Top of Guihua Lu, just diagonal from the McDonalds.

KALI MIRCH

Outstanding authentic Indian cuisine at a great value


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.

Address: Middle of Cheng Bei Lu, across from The Brew.

GANGA IMPRESSION

Another excellent Indian restaurant serving a variety of classic Indian dishes at fair prices. Definitely worth a try, especially if Kali Mirch is busy.

Address: Middle of Cheng Bei Lu, next to (the only other Indian restaurant) Kali Mirch

PURE LOTUS

A much-lauded vegetarian restaurant owned by long-time Yangshuo resident, Australian Malcolm The. On the corner of West Street and Die Cui Rd, Pure Lotus offers a wonderfully diverse selection of creative vegetarian dishes (no meat at all), with rustic chic interiors and comfortable seating. All of the tofu and egg dishes are especially good.

Address: West Street at Die Cui Rd. on the left side

7TH HEAVEN

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.

Address: No.2 Chengzhong Road, Yangshuo County 541900, China
