An old building, that used to be a Shandong cuisine restaurant (Qing Dynasty), with great views of the Lake Qianhai. Don't rush! Take a walk along the lake until you get a table with a view on the second floor. It gets easier around 9pm....More

A cozy old style Vietnamese restaurant. The food is good and the prices are not too high, even though this is in a touristic spot. The service is not the best, and the English language skills are insufficient.

Definitely not genuine Vietnamese food. The food was too heavy & oily, curry was typical Chinese and papaya salad without papaya. Spend your money anywhere else.

The food is great, but the service is SLOW! It is worth the wait - but slow! The views are great - and the atmosphere is good - and great wine!

This does a fair approximation of Vietnamese food, especially Hà Nội style, but don't expect anything too unusual or ultra authentic. That said it's fair priced and good quality. Staff are friendly and fluent in English. Decor is pleasant, the views of the lakes are...More

Shichachai on line 8 is closest, but Beihai North in line 6 is also pretty close.
