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...

This used to be one of my favorite restaurants in Beijing (where I live). I would go there to escape the city's chaos, have a great meal, and enjoy the serenity. I was willing to pay a lot of money for the food and the experience, but I won't do that any more. The menu has changed drastically. I can't... More

We were looking for a vegetarian restaurant and read about one that was runned by some monks, so we thought that should be special and not to expensive. We took the subway and started searching. We had to ask somebody because it wasn't easy to find, and he led us to a big, big door. The door opened and a... More
