Great restaurant with reasonable prices at lunch time

not only the awesome interior but also the high quality of the food makes Lan one of the finest restaurants in Beijing!

Designed by Starck, this is one of the largest and most amazing bars I've every seen. But on a Friday night, how barren and empty, only 3 diners, and us having a coctail at 9 pm. I'm told by the manager that dinners are full monday to Thursday. The bars are always empty. The coctails are great, the mirrored bathrooms... More

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
