Cathay Restaurant at Sheraton Guilin ****

Cathay Restaurant at Sheraton Guilin, Guilin, China

Sheraton Guilin
Bin Jiang Nan Road
(overlooking Li River)

Cuisine: Sichuan Chinese

Description & Atmosphere
The main dining room is spacious and elegantly decorated with paneled Chinese artwork, scenes of Guilin, and beautiful rosewood furniture. Floor-to-ceiling windows along one side of the restaurant overlook the Li River and promenade.

The Chinese food here rates "right up there" — it's some of the best we've ever eaten.

Excellent Dim Sum. Other standouts include: Sweet Corn & Diced Chicken Soup, Sautéed Snow Peas with Sesame Oil, Deep Fried Crispy Chicken with Lemon, Sautéed Eggplant in Ginger Sauce, Sautéed Diced Chicken with Cashew Nuts, and "Guilin" Style Fried Rice Noodles.

Incredible desserts, especially the Caramelized Apples & Bananas. Yum!


Entertainment at Cathay Restaurant at Sheraton Guilin, Guilin, China

Peking Duck
Be sure to order the Peking Duck. The menu offers two variations — traditional-style with thin Pancakes and Plum Sauce; and Shredded with Pineapple. Both dishes are amazingly good and portions are large.

Tea Connoisseur
The restaurant even has a special "Tea Connoisseur" offering guests a mixture of Special Teas of the Day. Boiling water is poured tableside from a long narrow-spouted kettle into a small cup filled with loose-leaf tea — from an arched height of at least one foot (see photo below). He makes it look so easy, but we wouldn't recommend trying it at home!
