I can't find a Burger King around here.  I live at Qingchun Lu and Jianguo Bei Lu, around 35 Qingchun. 

I went to the Hangzhou railway station, couldn't find one (though internet says there is one there).

I went to 260 Jiefang Lu (next to Ya'nan). There is a kind of strip mall of mostly restaurants that follows around a building there. #260 is empty.

Tomorrow I will take a ride to 155 Dongxin Lu to see if there is one there.  I'm feeling a bit more positive about this one, because I found it on a map that resulted from a Google search.  It showed 3 locations, none too close to me; the closest is about 7 kms north of here, which is no problem on my e-scooter. 

If you know where there actually is a BK, please let me know.

And it would be great to know where one might purchase a strawberry milkshake for a reasonable price.   They used to sell them at China McD's way back in the day.  I miss milkshakes, especially on a warm summer afternoon.  Sad they don't go over well here.

The one at the station is gone for quite some time,  I guess 2 years?  

I'm not sure where u can check because I always used to go to the one close to the west lake.

There is a Burger King at EAC center (Jiao gong lu). There is also a Mc donalds so you can check if they have milkshake or not

Another BK is located in Wen Er Lu.

I found one at Fengqi and Xintang Roads.  It's about 5.5 kms from me, but still the closest one I have found so far.

The service was ok. The tables were dirty.  Only a couple of couples there (about 9pm). I was cold from riding around in the snow on my scooter looking for BK's. I bought a hot chocolate to warm-up, and a lava cheese cake; I wish they had more desserts. They made a mistake in my order, but it was an easy fix.  I didn't linger because the staff were calling out insults, which really spoiled my appetite and destroyed any good feelings I had for the place.  I finished up quickly, and got outta there. 

I won't go there much, but I get craving a good hamburger every now and then, and so far as my pallet knows, BK has the best tasting burger in China.  It's too bad that there aren't any left in the city.

Thanks a lot for your help.

There are many more places with proper burgers... The burger restaurant at nanshan road for example. Their steaks  are also awesome.

Carls Burgers is so-so. I used to eat there during my college days as I got tired of eating In N Out constantly. the good thing about Carls is the size factor. Burger King back home was never busy, similar to KFC. But here in China, BK is definitely the only way to go if you have choices. 

Yes, there is one in EAC and here in the northeast Linping area. I tried the other night but they were closed. Not sure if they were just closing as staff were there, or if they were closed for CNY.

    • Hello, Just thought I would leave this info here about my friend's beauty salon. It's called t-mei beauty salon . The beauty salon is based on the 7th floor, 1st building of GuoDu Development Plaza, No 182, Chao Hui Road, Hangzhou. Nearest metro station is West Lake Cultural Square (about 200 meters away). The main hairdresser is called Julia - has been working in the industry for nearly a decade, worked in London for some time, won a bunch of awards. She is a local, but speaks English. They  do haircuts, style and color hair, do hair-nourishment, makeup, manicures, eye-lashes... They also have a pool table and serve some really good coffee, too :)  If you find yourself in need of a good hairdresser, t-mei beauty salon is an excellent choice and I hope you visit them soon :) Phone number: 13208005020
    • omg, yes! The constant turning a bedroom into something else to make it fit or vice versa. It's really obvious in those apartments where there wouldn't be a wall ends up having a half-ass built slide in doors/blankets to cover an area up, and they still want like 6500 cause it has that extra bed room. haha. 
    • What blue is saying is 100% truth.. They are like fake.  Best to bring a Chinese friend with you because they are going to Rip you off. I will also add to  blue his points the most scam they all use.  For example you will say you want a 2 bed room apartment with a separate living room ( normal for us right) then they will bring you to many crappy places with no living room or with 1 bedroom turned into a living room.. Wjen they get you all tired up they will show you what you want but the price is much much more expensive.  They hope u will take it because you are all messed up from all the stress and going trough the crappy apartments... Keep that in mind :p
    • Most of the online websites all post fake pictures. Me and my wife go through this shit all the time and its annoying. For the most part we use ganji wang. Put in all the details from the top, it gives you the results, see an apartment we like, we give the realtor a call, and they reply in one of three ways.  1. That apartment is gone, we have some that look like that (they RARELY do, most are just shit holes) 2. Those pictures are fake, but we have some that look like that. 3. That apartment is still available but the actual price on it is ....and they bump it up a few thousand.  imo, the easiest way is still finding a real estate agent, let them get an idea of what you are looking for and then they will take you to several apartments.
