Great little place with a feeling of home. Very welcoming owners, and the 2-4-1 happy hour is fantastic!

Dropped by this place on Sunday afternoon. Really friendly staff and a great happy hour BOGOF on 35RMB Heineken (between 5 and 8pm). The more pijiu we drank the more the nibbles came out (gratis). By the end I was eating stuffed olives and locally steamed dumplings with my 6th pint.... (Lad).
