“Famous for Beer Fish, Many Branches”

Restaurant details
Reviewed 9 September 2018

This restaurant is famous for its Beer Fish. It was featured on local TV and has many branches in West Street. We ate at a small corner outlet not far from the river. Quieter. We later notice that the prices are also slightly cheaper than the other, bigger outlets located centrally. Singer provides song and music. Not too loud. Just nice.

We ordered the Beer Fish (cheapest one, 48 RMB/kg) and some other regular dishes. Beer Fish is by weight. Smallest one is still about 2+ kg (around 100 RMB). Good enough for 3-4 people. Waiter will weigh and check with you first if you want to order. The most expensive sword fish is very expensive (180+ RMB/kg).

Beer fish is delicious. However, despite its name, I didn't really taste the beer in either the fish or gravy. It's the same elsewhere. I was told the alcohol content has evaporated during cooking. They locals used it to remove the fish smell. Regardless, it is very delicious and worth trying. Lots of bones though so be careful when eating. The other dishes are also quite good.

Recommend to go early (before 6pm if dinner) as it takes time to prepare, and also to get the better seats. It gets crowded after 6.30 pm.

This is a very popular restaurant in Yangshuo with many chain stores on or near West Street. The specialty is of course the Beer Fish (PiJiuYu). That is a specialty in this area. There are many different types of fish you can have here. The price is by unit weight, and you have to get the entire fish. The local famous fish dish is the sword fish, which is very expensive. It's worth a try. Another specialty is rice cooked in a bamboo. Not sure if it tastes better, but certain to interesting.

On a busy weekend evening, was able to be seated in less than 15 min. Nice menu selection, but ran out of a few items.

The beer fish with tomato was very good, Long beans were under cooked with pork. Atmosphere was nice with a steady turn of tables.

Service is friendlier than most in the town.

We had a meal here and quite enjoyed the beer fish. We ordered the signature dish as indicated from the menu. We also had a fried shrimp dish which we thought was just ok. There are many branches on West street itself.

Staff speaks hardly English, and we couldn't understand them with the general apps. So we pointed to a fish bowl (braised in beer, which is famous here) at 158 yuan which is pricy on its own. But the n the price doubled because we were with two person. The guide news? The sword fish was excellent!
