1) Lede French Restaurant乐得法式餐厅 View In Map

Located in the middle stretch of West Street, Lede French Restaurant could be described as West Street’s largest restaurant.

A large square stretches out in front of the restaurant, packed with tables and chairs which are lit up by candlelight at night, giving the place a romantic atmosphere.

Lede French Restaurant’s inside decor is all Chinese style, with old “Eight Spirit” tables and rosewood benches. The walls boast ancient Chinese paintings as well as a few masks and old telephones, among other artifacts. The restaurants owners are a multi-national couple (a Frenchman and a Yangshuo native), and have been featured in several French newspapers. Of course, Lede French Restaurant’s mouth-watering orthodox Western delicacies are the most memorable part of the dining experience, and include roasted escargot, Provencial chicken, garlic bread, etc. Bon Apetite!

2) Red Star Express红星特快 View In Map

Red Star Express has quite the unique name, which may come from the eye-catching five-cornered red star at the entrance, the “logo” of the restaurant. You’ll have to pass through a long aisle of pizza boxes when you enter the restaurant, and if you look closely you’ll notice that they’re covered in interesting notes from visitors. After you pass through the bar, there’s another room where the wall is deliberately rough, like the outside wall of a construction site. There are also street lamps decorated with colorful cloth ribbons lighting the room as well as a large fireplace, apparently where they roast chicken. On top of the fireplace you’ll find a statue of the Virgin Mary. This eclectic decorating style seems to be the result of the boss’s meticulous probing of many people’s creative talent. Red Star Express boasts the area’s best pizza, and its grilled fillet steak, salmon pizza and black tree grilled steak aren’t half bad; both are very popular with foreign customers.
