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

It is always sad when there are more staff than guests, which was the case on a Friday night. Drinks are very reasonable, food was excellent and staff was friendly. The location is a bit odd, situated in an office tower and might explain the lack of people. Decor is what it is - spectacular and crazy and up to... More

I very much loved the decor of the restaurant. It us furbished with antiques, artworks and has some flamboyant artefacts adorned all around (including the ceiling). The ambience is breathtaking. The food is good an reasonably priced but beverages are exorbitantly overpriced. Several dishes are relatively reasonably pried considering the quality of the restaurant. I normally ado not comment on... More

Our experience is probably an outlier; that said, during a busy lunch, the service we received was (honestly) just terrible. Napkins were not provided at the outset (and not provided until almost half-way through our luncheon, after 2 separate requests), our drink orders were forgotten (not once, but TWICE!!!), at one point I raised my hand to attract attention (this...

We had a memorable day into night in Beijing. From the Great Wall to the great dinner, it was perfect. The decor even wowed a jaded New Yorker and the food was excellent. We found the price fair for over the top ambiance and service. Not to be missed - it truly punctuated the perfect day!

I loved the decor of the restaurant. It looks more like a museum than a restaurant. The food is very good and some dishes are relatively cheap compared with the quality of the service, the ambiance and the exclusive atmosphere. Try the "Cao ya" or Beijing laked duck. Ask the possibility for the chef coming to your table and showing... More
