Great find - easy to locate, right along Longjing Road. Housed in a rustic (rather charming) set-up that couldn't decide if it was an outpost in the wild wild west, or a farmhouse in a French countryside. Packed to the gills when we got there just before 1 pm for lunch - took a number, and waited an easy 20... More

Based on ratings on TripAdvisor, five of us went to LvCha for lunch after a morning tour to the West Lake. Although it took us forever to find this place, my American colleagues loved the food (a lot of meat) and were even more surprised by the low price. We ordered 11 dishes and 4 beers and the total came... More

If you want a good local food experience that´s the place! Really good food in a very pleasant ambience. Tips: arrive early (especially for dinner, ´cause many restaurants in China closes at 10PM or even earlier than that...) and take a look in the "photo menu" in the entrance while waiting for your table, then you can take pictures of...

The restaurant was located near the Museum, with very good view and delicious food. Especially in Winter time, the glass warm house will absorb the sunshine and keep the room very warm, but still you can see the beautiful scenery outside.

Such a great place for lunch. Yummy food to fit western tastebuds. I take all my visiting friends here to sample HZ food. Prices are great and food consitanrly good. Gets very crowded, arrive by 11 am for no wait seating, by 11:30 it may be too late. Order following in photo and you'll have a yummy lunch!!

Iris told me it is a best restaurant. And she is right. I love the food in the restaurant. It is very fine food, and it is very local. It is the best chinese food I have ever had.

I really enjoy coming here, the food is very good, the scenery is excellent if you get a window seat, the only problem is that is gets very busy. Even booking ahead might mean you have to queue. Highly recommended, but would be a lot better with a menu with an English translation..

Mix tradition with creativity, and you have the Green Tea. Sites next to West Lake, it gives you a resort like atmosphere. Great food selection and always popular.

The best thing about this place is the location. Nestled in the valley and surrounded by a small pond, this restaurant is a prime spot for lunch. I say lunch because that's when you can best enjoy the scenery. Food, on the other hand, was just average. The tea pork, tofu with century egg, and green mung bean was good.... More

1. Super good value for money. Went as a group of 4 and spent less than 300 rmb on 8 dishes and drinks. Star dishes include the bread with ice cream, green tea roasted pork and clams in spicy sauce. 2. Restaurant housed in tea hut nestled amidst tea plantation. 3. Remember to come before 5pm for dinner. Queue was... More
