There are fast food chains like KFCs and MacDonalds, but there are not as many Western fast food places as in big coastal cities. Some Chinese chains selling Western-style food substitute. Wuhan is modernizing and hoping to attract Western visitors, and more places are opening up.

In Hankou (Jianghan District), the American Cowboy Restaurant near the Shangri-la Hotel serves a buffet between 2 pm and 11 pm every day for 30 RMB. The food is good, and this place attracts middle-class Chinese people. Also in Hankou, near the Galaxy Plaza is the Yes Bar, a lively place serving western food.

It is located on Chuang Ye Street south of East Lake Park and north of Wuluolu.
