I came here with a local who's been here before. And even then we struggled to direct the taxi to the right location. It is only in fact a 5-10 minute walk from Xiangmihu MTR station, but good luck walking in the right direction. You'll certainly feel like you're going the wrong way before you find it, and from the outside, it doesn't even really look like a restaurant (see photos).

Once you get through the underwhelming exterior, the decor inside is incredibly pleasant. There's a definite Buddhist influence. The staff were all friendly, and the food absolutely delicious.

It was a little expensive, costing ¥160 to fill both of us, but I would say that it was worth it. The food was superb.

I especially liked the dumplings.

Everything about this place is excellent... if you can find it.

Pros: Delicious food, Really nice decor
Cons: Very difficult to find

Had a chance to visit Shenzhen last week and was recommended this restaurant by the hotel staff as it was the closest thing to where I was staying.

The location is a bit tricky as it is located within a park through many alleyways. The first taxi driver flat-out refused to take me. It took much convincing by the hotel concierge for the 2nd taxi to give it a try, but it even took a couple phone calls by the driver to find this restaurant.

Once I made it there the staff was extremely friendly but spoke little English. The place has the look and feel of an ancient Buddhist temple. I ordered a main and bowl of personal soup. Everything on the menu looked fantastic but could not try many as I'm always a lone vegan diner! There is a wonderfully done picture menu that has no English on it. Once they realized I read no Chinese they brought out an English menu that is very extensive with no pictures.

The food was fantastic and I ended up ordering 2 extra mains plus 2 rice bowls and the total was 150RMB including a pot of hot tea. Will definitely return to try other dishes.

They also have a website at

Pros: peaceful atmosphere, English menu, very friendly staff
Cons: hard to find

I am going to have to make time to modify my "Fave 10" list.

Yunlaiju is way better than a "5 HappyCows" rating!

I had dinner at Yunlaiju last night with 2 friends - my second visit!


Just their selection of teas makes a visit worthwhile - I chose freshly roasted buckwheat tea!

Warning - you have to navigate a maze of un-named streets to find it - study the location carefully / ask locals for help in finding it before you go!
