This is a high-end branch of Zhiweiguan, one of the major culinary attractions in the city. It serves authentic local dishes and some southern China specialties including xiaolongbao (little steamed buns) and wonton soup.
The brand has evolved from a little humble snack bar founded 99 years ago and now has 45 outlets around Hangzhou. Zhiweiguan is very popular and it's quite common for long queues to form during meal times. One reason for Zhiweiguan's popularity is the food is reasonably priced. However, an average meal in Wei Zhuang will cost between 150 yuan (US$23.55) and 200 yuan per person.
The restaurant is situated at the end of Yanggong Causeway just behind the famous scenic spot "Viewing Fish at Flower Harbor." It consists of six antique-style houses above West Lake. Each house is connected by a corridor. The restaurant is famous for its West Lake Vinegar Fish, Longjing Tea Shrimp, Beggar's Chicken, West Lake Water Shield Soup, Zhiweiguan Homemade Steamed Bun, Cat's Ear Noodles and Dingsheng Cake.
