You Haven’t Experienced Hangzhou Until You Dine in Kuiyuan Restaurant 2017-06-27
Founded in 1867 by an Anhui businessman, Kuiyuan Noodle Restaurant first gained its fame in the 1940’s where, at that time, it was frequented by many celebrities and artists. 

Today Kuiyuan owes its popularity to the students who flooded to Hangzhou to take their Provincial Imperial Examinations. It was one poor student in particular who caught the eye of the owner who, taking pity on the student, put an extra three eggs into his Pian’erchuan noodles to wish him good luck in his pending exams. Unexpectedly the student did pass the examination and later returned to the restaurant to express his gratitude and learning that the restaurant had not been named yet he offered to call it ‘Kuiyuan Restaurant’. Kuiyuan in Chinese indicates the place in which to bring good luck to students taking examinations. Rapidly, Pian’erchuan and Kuiyuan Restaurant gained popularity.


Word on the street is “you haven’t experienced Hangzhou until you dine in Kuiyuan Noodle Restaurant’. There is no need to study the menu in this ‘old-brand’ of restaurants, as it’s Pian’erchuan noodles is always the top favourite.
