Been there many many times, this restaurant offers authentic Suzhou cuisine at very affordable price. The waitresses are well trained and the waiting time for the courses are short. Highly recommend!

I was both apprehensive and excited by the short queue required to get a table at this bustling and obviously local haunt. Big bare wooden tables and loud conversation are the style here, though surprisingly the middle-aged waitress spoke quite good English and caught me off-guard (living in China it's easy to blithely speak whatever you like in English and expect no one to understand a word you say!) So even before you get to the quality of food and speed of service it's a winner for foreigners in Suzhou wanting something authentic.
I bit the bullet and ordered the 118rmb 'Squirrel' fish which is pretty much the local delicacy, beautifully deboned and presented in a Briton-friendly sweet and sour sauce. Along with this we had aubergine in a rich fish sauce and spring onion thin fried noodles. I also managed to get a snow beer for 8rmb, which is a bargain.
Everything was absolutely spot on - really wish we could come back.
