Pure Lotus used to be my favorite vegetarian restaurant in Beijing and I've been going there since 2004. It WAS my go-to place to showcase how vegetarian cuisine is done right to my out of town friends. And without exception, everyone was bedazzled! Then after just a little more than two year's absence, I returned with my colleagues ... and... More

I had been here a year ago and I was excited to go back because of the super cool ambiance, but since I'd been here before I didn't check the reviews before we left. What a mistake! The prices have increased to 800 RMB/person = 130 USD! One of our friends who came along said when she came here and... More

It used to be one of my favorite restaurants in Beijing. I've been dining there for nearly 6 years, until they decided to change the menu and all prices X 4 times. If you are planning to spend well over $100 per pax minimum then you can go check it out. The worst part of it was the last time... More

It is very popular with foreigners and also very beautiful and expensive. It's something different from typical restaurant that we go to.

This restaurant was highly recommended by my friend due to the environment and food. We're really impressed on the ambience, food decor, and services. However I was nearly fainted upon settlement of bill. I can't expect Vegetarian dinner for 5pax could cost me Rmb 4000. It's too much and the price been increased tremendously compared with few years back.

The food is still good. The service is still superb. The atmosphere is still really special. THE PRICE, however, gone up A LOT. Usually, price per person before is at 200-300RMB. But it is 700-800RMB(ATLEAST) per person, now. Not worth the price though. Worth a try, REALLY GOOD FOOD.

This place is totally out of the ordinary, hidden in a small alley in Beijing. Once we managed to find it we were nicely welcomed by the staff, outfitted in traditional costumes. The waiter was extremely helpful and advised us through the menu. The presentation of the food is stunning, the taste is delicate and fresh while the atmosphere make... More

Two years ago this restaurant served the best vegetarian meals on earth. Now all you get is overpriced bland vegetables. The presentation is still fancy and elaborate but not worth the $100+

This is a vegetarian restaurant in Beijing. As far as I could see, each party has a completely private dining room. I was taken there by business associating who know I am vegetarian. What a wonderful, private way to share dinner with business associates. I wish we had this kind of dining experience in Los Angeles. We had a six... More
