Definitively fun, crazy interior design by Philippe Starck

This place is as much a lounge bar as a restaurant. Some would say the cuisine is not great, on my side, I enjoyed it, particularly the Mongolian ribs. The interior is just crazy fun. Some will love its old heavy style of the "Louis" period, revisited by Philippe Starck, with a touch of fun...

Fab atmosphere, mind boggling presentation of food, however fried rice should be served with the entrees, not as the last course when all meat and veg dishes are eaten.

We were very excited to try LAN after reading the reviews. The decor was nothing short of fabulous. each table was different, the ceiling boasted unique paintings and the bathrooms were unlike any other one can find in China. There were 9 of us dining, and all of us wanted to try something different. It is not unusual to have... More

Lan is all about the setting. Occupying an enormous space on a lower floor of the LG Twin Towers (an unfortunate name) LAN is both a dining room and night club that defies description. The interior is part mad house, part Picasso nightmare and part Addams Family retro. Everything is over the top from outrageously oversized furniture, elaborate candelabras on... More

When LAN first opened it set a new standard for Beijing dining. Expect good but not spectacular spicy szechuan food, and expect to be blown way by the interior and the ambiance.

The place is a magnificant piece of art! Every corner, every cabinet a stunning display of Stark design. But the place is empty and that is very sad. Food can be either a success or a failiure, depending on what you choose. If they have it at all! Most things seem not available and then they stear you towards much... More

We were a large group with global representation. Course after course of a set menu was served and subsequently cleared with the majority of the food still on the plates. I honestly avoided eating more for fear of stomach upset - taste, texture and temperature were all off. The setting is an otherwise unfinished floor of an office tower disguised... More

Just arrived in Beijing and was taken here. What an unbelievable place. The decor is stunning and magnanimous akin to a museum. At everywhere. Even the toilets were total eye openers. And then the food.. I have not had such original dishes every before in China. Lotus paddies on souffléd tofu, cod and pork, and shrimps. Appetisers alone would've sufficed.... More
