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 artisnal bread, so be sure to ask him about it.

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



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


Another excellent Indian restaurant serving a variety of classic Indian dishes at fair prices. Definitely worth a try.

Address: Middle of Cheng Bei Lu, next to Kali Mirch
