The restaurant is medium size and quite comfortable. The price is very very cheap. The portions are oversized but very fresh noodles and dumplings

TongQingLou (Fu South Road)

Reviewed By ginger_jian - Denton, Texas

We had a family dinner at this place. The service was very good and the dishes were delicious and were presented beautifully. Although I couldn't remember the name of all the dishes, I liked the spicy river shrimps and the tender bamboo in the chicken soup the most. The little fried steamed bread tasted so good that we ordered an additional serving.
Compared to LuZhou TaiTai (庐州太太) where we had dinner the night before, this place offers a much more private dinning experience at a much higher price tag, of course.

Pizza Hut (XiaoYao Plaza)

Reviewed By SinophileLuton - China

Being starved of "decent" pizza as a long-term resident of China, I very often try to pay a visit to Pizza Hut when staying in another city. Also very often I am left disappointed by poor service and food.
Although the service wasn't exactly rapid, I had no complaints about the food or indeed the house red. A solid choice for a medium priced meal in Hefei.

Have some deliciously cooked Hua Cai, cauliflowers)) They are some of the best that I've ever tasted which in Anhui, couldn't find the same ones in northeast--Harbin, Changchun, Shenyang. Moreover, there are also carrot sliced and beef with tomato dishes that are delicious too! Try it!

Reviewed By Grandpa284 - Berkeley, California

In the Wanda shopping mall, across from the Westin Hotel, this restaurant has great food. The menu has pictures and explanations in English (as well as Chinese). Service is good and prices are
typical for the town: we had a great meal for less than 10$ per person. Highly recommended!

Fiesta Cafe All-Day-Dining

Reviewed By Hengor - Malaysia

I tried both buffet breakfast and dinner. They served good coffee. For breakfast, I like the egg tarts, friend dumplings, bread pudding and fried you tiao.
For dinner, i like the sirloin, snow brand beer, shashimi and desserts.
The servers are polite, friendly and readily to render assistance. Environment is cozy and relaxed.
I highly recommend you to give it a try if you are staying in Hefei Crowne Plaza.

They have some of the most delicious and tasty porridge I've ever had! Dined there on 22 May 2015 in the afternoon, I felt quite hungry so I decided to come here and order a porridge and some poached eggs. It turned out that they are very authentic, though a bit expensive, that's ok. Great job, pedestrian street!)

From casual lunches, afternoon teas to decadent evening meals, and cocktail fuelled evenings, the J Lounge has it all. We offer a range of authentic Italian dishes, freshly baked bread, award-winning draft beers, and the best cocktails in Hefei.

Give the bartender a base alcohol, tell him whether you like it sweet or sour or strong and he will come up with something for you that is always quite delicious!
The food is good, and the atmosphere enjoyable. Still working on their service levels (food in timely manner and clearing away tables) but all in all my expat friends and I really enjoy this Western style restaurant. We'll be back for sure!
