Wangtianshu Restaurant & Deli: Gourmet dinners and the best bread in China!
Wangtianshu Restaurant & Deli offers Jinghong’s highest quality Western and Asian food.
Coq Au Vin, pasta with homemade pesto and Italian thin crust pizza to the flavor of Banna - Southeast Asian dishes such as spicy salads and Dai-style chicken, it's all there.
Try the homemade ice-creams and jams!
Enjoy their French crepes or a more traditional bacon and eggs or Swiss muesli breakfast on the sunny terrace. The coffee's great, too.
Alongside the restaurant they run a bakery and deli, selling sourdough breads and several different cakes. The deli shop sells imported foods – Italian prosciutto, European cheeses, wines, chocolate. All reasonably-priced.
Favorite Dish: The Coq au Vin! Not cheap but great!

Mekong Cafe: Possibly the best western food in China
The menu has a large variety of foods from around the world. We got sandwiches and were super impressed. The bread tasted home-made. It was so good, we had to stay for dessert. The cheesecake was also wonderful and had to have been home-made. If it wasn't our last day, we would have gone back again and again. The prices were really reasonable. We met the owner, he was a very friendly European man. There was also tourist information and the map we had used in Xishuangbanna was from the cafe. The restaurant was nice too, with a patio in both the front and back of the restaurant.
Uygur restaurant at Manting rd.: great hand made noodles and sauces
Some excellent stuff here and one of my favourite places to eat Uygur dishes in Jinghong with hand made white and thick noodles! I have been eating here every day a few times since it was so good. If you can speak some Chinese you can order vegetarian varieties. Prices are very affordable - we usually paid less than 10 RMB per delicious vegetarian noodle with sauce. Staff is friendly but they don't speak any english - no problem, just point at the pictures of food at the wall.
This restaurant has only arab/chinese name on the wall which I couldn't read. It's between Mei mei cafe and Lao-thai restaurant (next door). Has few tables only and it gets full often but it's worth to wait. You can see how noodles are done by hands - the skill that restaurants owners are very proud of and for good reason.
Favorite Dish: Noodle - many kinds and different sauces.
Don't know: Wild Elephant Valley
There wasn't anything special about the restaurant. The dining room has gotten a bit old and was entirely empty, but still served pretty good food. The restaurant is right on the small lake near the entrance of the park.
They have capacity to seat large tour groups.
Keep in mind that if you are going to stay the night in the park, this is really the only place to eat. So, if you're staying at the treehouse hotel, eat here before you go.
Favorite Dish: Two images.
Mekong Cafe: An Oasis
Good food... more later
A little difficult to see right now behind a few trees, they are moving soon right around the corner. The Mekong Cafe has good food in a desert of Chinese grease and MSG. They have an English menu and a guide to the local area.
You can sit on the floor at a table and eat if you like. I don't know what the new place is going to look like, but it should be open June 1.
Favorite Dish: The coconut chicken is really good, served quite hot in a coconut. To really freak out the staff, crack the coconut and eat the meat...
