3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2014

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

It used to be our favourite restaurant. Meanwhile they increased the prices horrendously and eliminated all the additional services and courtesy items. If you still decide to go be ready to pay well over 100$ per person.

Some Beijing friends took us here and, yes, very expensive, but also an amazing dining experience. The food was excellent, as was the service and presentation. There are plants and air mists inside which provide a far better air quality than the polluted air outside. Our server spoke excellent English and gave instructions on how each dish was intended to... More

Over a period of 5 years I frequented this restaurant whenever I was in Beijing, which amounts to a minimum of 6 times a year, and often I would go there multiple times during each trip, taking clients along for what invariaby turned out an amazing experience for them. And then it all changed. After an absence of a few... More

It's very very expensive, but it is a meal you will never forget. The taste of the food, the presentation, the decor all add up to a once in a lifetime experience.

I live in Beijing and loved Pure Lotus when we first visited last year. We visited again 2 weeks ago and were really disappointed. Prices seemed to be at least double what they were previously (we heard others in the restaurant remark on this too so it wasn't just us). Some of the cheap items were gone completely (there used...
