We were exploring the largely vacant Lucretius mall when we eventually came upon the relative oasis of grandmas kitchen after a brief visit to what much of been the smokers tar ice we went upstairs and found a lovely 2 couch booth for our meal. The wait staff was ver accommodating in our mixed Chinese and English the food was all good but the milk shakes were incredibly good. We went back 2 nights later as we were staying at the Hyatt and had a similar positive experience.

We enjoyed eating at Grandma's - best spot for western food. Fresh and varied menu included sandwiches, burgers, salads, pastas etc. Service is somewhat slow but you can relax and enjoy the wait. Really nice atmosphere and design.

It is a shame that few Westerners would find their own way to this restaurant, but then again it is not cheap, so not suitable for backpackers and so on.I believe it is part of a growing chain started by a Chinese from the US. The building itself is stunning, and an effort has been made to train the staff well (for a high class establishment there is still a little way to go however).
The choice of food is impressive, covering a number of cuisines. There is a wine-list with foreign wines and spirits. They serve steak, although it is expensive (as in many places in China). One thing that amused me was that when I ordered a Qingdao beer (Tsingtao), they brought me an almost child sized bottle that only half filed the beer glass, this for the price of a large bottle elsewhere.

Man, I was so happily surprised to find Grandma's Kitchen inside this new shopping area. Great American/Tex-Mex menu. I am familiar with this chain from other big cities in China but sure didn't expect it here. Very glad I did though. Really hit the spot after walking around the old China stereotypes of Old Town all day.

Although it's a long walk from LiJiang Old Town, this restaurant delivers! I highly recommend this place.

The Grandma`s Kitchen Restaurant is located in a new Shopping Mall on the road to Shuhe Old Town. Besides Asian & Chinese Food, they also offer very tasteful Asian and International Starters like Mozzarella Cheese Sticks, Parma Ham with Tomato and French Baked Snail or Pan-Fried Goose Liver. Followed either by Pasta or Pizza or even a Angus Sirloin or Rib-eye Steak ( a little bit expensive). The also offer Mexican food such as Tacos, Burritos or Quesadillas al with Guacamole, Sour Cream and Salsa. All very good, tasteful and nice portions. Grandmas`s Kitchen seems to be the only restaurant in Lijiang where you can get good and reasonable prized western Food! The only problem seems to be the service staff (seems to be a high tunrover!) as they never understand first course first, the followed by main or next course and every time, all food comes like in Chinese food culture, at the same time!
