The Lily Pad Inn was a three-story floating inn in the Xiousing district of Marsember, owned by the Shou known as Shiau Chen. The inn was built on a floating platform on the large pond known as the Zhao. Chen ran a rickshaw service out of the inn.[1]


Among other dishes, the inn served fried vegetable rolls, boiled dumplings and duck-stuffed sweet buns.[1]


The inn offered hot tea free of charge to all its patrons.[1]


The inn was the performance venue of the renowned Shou twins Ping and Ling Chiang. Ping played a string instrument known as the erhu and Ling performed a fan dance.[1]
