Modern and elaborateOwner Wang Yong's splendid restaurant is located in Ritan Park, where Chinese emperors paid homage to the God of the Sun. Service is expat-friendly, and the decor is modern and elaborate. Those who prefer to sit outdoors can perch on one of the four tables in front of the porch or on the roof of the 2nd floor and 3rd floor. Both floors have a good view of the park.

The cuisine is hand-picked homestyle cooking, but don't expect rough and ready street cooking. The ingredients appear to be the same, but the cooking, preparation and presentation are a cut above. Recommended dishes include the roast duck,braised diced eggplant with assorted nuts,pan-fried chicken slices with Hawaiian nuts and deep-fried crispy bean curd with mild chilli sauce.

Average spending is 100 yuan per person. Park entry is free.
