I took my 4 year old for his first experience of bowling. They have no "inflatable sausages" to go in the gutters, so 95% of his throws/rolls hit nothing. Also, no kids' shoes or small balls. We asked if they host birthday parties and were told no. Lots of smokers there too. So cheap enough, and everything worked, but not one for kids.
This place gets three stars just for still existing. But I'll give it 4 because the staff don't bat an eye at silly foreigners bringing in their own beer or food.
well that was a lot of fun, and my arm may fall off. be sure to wait for host Charles to show up so as to not confuse the kind old man behind the counter, who will charge an extra 5 kuai per person,per game. can't wait for xmas to be over and start again weekly in january! a great alternative to the pub.
