Guiyu Restaurant /桂语山房
Add New Venue

When we think of Southern-styled decorations, we are often reminded of our time when we went to Suzhou often. If you’ve ever got a hankering to learn a thing or two about the art of Chinese minimalist design, well there’s no better place to start than the gardens of Suzhou. Or for that matter, you could just go to the “outskirts” of town to Guiyu Restaurant. Immediately upon entering this place, our nostrils were pleasantly invaded with a scent of some sort of or, a variety of, flowers. And on the rainy day that we went, we were warmed with the wood burning cauldrons that are placed all over the hallways. But don’t let this attention to detail fool you into thinking that it’s overdone. In typical Southern style, it’s anything but, as was evident as soon as we were escorted into our private room which has bare walls, but clean lines and one nicely arranged book on the table. Though we didn’t disturb that well-placed book on the table, we did open the menu with voraciousness similar to that with which we eventually went at our Curry Prawn (158RMB). One diner at our table had to have her plate changed three times. She ate so many prawns. The Pork Ribs with Plum (58RMB) shouldn’t be avoided at all costs, as was the Pigeon’s Egg with Foie Gras (68RMB) which was so rich we had to take some home. We were so stuffed. It should also be noted that they have a full set vegetarian menu (168 or 238RMB/person) and that all of their chefs are classically trained in Cantonese cooking. On a side note, drink prices should finally not be forgotten at 58RMB for freshly squeezed juices. That nearly broke our bank, but they were refreshing needless to say. Though smoking is allowed, smokers at our table did so on our private balcony. The aforementioned drinks put our bill just up over 600RMB for three of us, but we also had a doggie bag full of goodies to take home. English and picture menu, and parking available with an umbrella totting man waiting there to escort you through the rain should you get caught in it.
