Deji Plaza Building 7, 18 Zhongshan Road, Nanjing
Distance from hotel: 10 km

Feast on local Nanjing cuisine from salted duck and duck vermicelli noodles to Chinese meatball soup and sweet red bean desserts.

Food is cooked on charcoal stoves with low heat in order to maintain the natural flavors of the original stock. Catch the musical performances of ladies dressed in traditional Qipaos as they play traditional Chinese instruments such as Pipa and Erhu.

117 Xinjiekou Fengfu Lu, Nanjing
Distance: 11 km
Area: Qinhuai District 
The Taj Mahal comes highly recommended as a vegetarian restaurant since Indian cuisine is so well known for extracting flavours from vegetables without the help of meat. The Rajma Makhani (red beans cooked with garlic and ginger) is an excellent choice, as is the Dum Aloo Kishmiri (potatoes stuffed with spiced cheese, nuts and raisins). Additionally, the relaxing décor and calming ambiance of the restaurant only add to the overall eating experience.
