This was very good. 3 people: orange duck, fried noodles and beef and sweat and sour chicken. The orange sauce smelled like a cream cycle and but didn't have an overly sweet taste. Sweet and sour sauce also was a hit. The fried noodles and beef prepared perfectly. Wanton soup was also good.

This restaurant is not very large or fancy, but the food is excellent and is inexpensive. The waitress was very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the noodles and the beef with vegetables and mushrooms.

In my previous visit, I ordered Wan Tan soup with some extra vegetables. After 20 minutes the soup arrived with no extra vegetables. On asking again, the waitress coldly said, "extra vegetables shall be charged extra". I politely said "ok" and "no problem". In 5 mins the soup arrived with just few more chinese cabbage leaves. I swallowed my disappointment... More

Looking for good and authentic Beijing cuisine then Beijingya is the place. Succulent and flavourful, the roast duck is superb, fried squid and crispy beef delicious. Service is quick and staff understand both French and English. Place can be crowded especially at lunch time, though patrons visit for a quick meal so the wait is never long.

When you go to this restaurant do not expect great service and language barriers. The employees seem to speak French well but their English is quite poor. That's fine, but remember to understand them in this situation. Also, they seem quite business orientated, trying to turn around tables fast. That aside, you won't get the problem here that you get... More

One of those hidden unpretencious places, which surprise with excellent quisine. I have been there several times and was never dissapointed. Hong Kong duck is absolute must in this restaurant. Fried noodles with beef are great too and if you have the courage, definitely go for the pork stomack. Service is nice and swift and the prices are appropriate. Recommended!

This is a no-frills restaurant which offers an excellent range of dishes not usually present on the menu of European-oriented Chinese establishments. Consequently it is frequented by Chinese as well as locals. Amongst the specialities we tried and appreciated: duck tongues, hundred-year egg with tofu, chicken feet. For the more conservative customer, there are more mainline beef, pork and duck... More

A very well located restaurant with extremely good food. Finding an affordable good Chinese restaurant in Belgium can be a difficult task. This restaurant is a savior for all Chinese cuisine lovers like me. The service is quick. Would have loved to see more smiling faces but food makes up for all the little flaws.

I would rate this as 90% authentic chinese food. The downside are that service can be a little lacking, place can be quite crowded and being a small place, you will end up with food smell clinging to you clothes. If you don't mind the above, you will enjoy an excellent chinese meal!

Went to Beijingya based on the basis of the Tripadvisor reviews. Glad I did. There were some comments about it being “rough”. I would more call it basic. The furniture is fairly new but not fancy. The food was cheap. Most less than €11. Also got soup. Very large bowls, lots of meat and vegetables. They brought extra rice when... More
