Firstly, I just want to congratulate this place for acknowledging the fact that some of their customers can't read chinese menus/have small children or need dish recommendations. Beautiful setting with attentive staff and prompt service. We needed two high-chairs and they arrived instantly-clean and safe. Big and clear photo-menus with plenty of options for fussy kids and wary parents. English... More

We had an amazing dinner here with wonderful Peking duck and pork spare ribs. The ambience is like being in a hutong alley fused with a restaurant. Quite nice. And our server James Bond (had a card to prove is his name!) Made the experience even more enjoyable. Add in some table side performances and it's a great pick for... More

We were a little disappointed with the Peking duck because it came cold, but otherwise the food was good and reasonably priced. We paid the equivalent if £30 for dinner for two. Bear in mind that Peking duck is rather more expensive than most dishes and we had alcohol. Entertainment starts at 8pm each night in the courtyard and is... More

This is the 2nd time I have eaten here. If you want a front seat to the 8pm performance, try to make a reservation. If not, other part of the restaurant (it is actually in a Chinese court yard house) is equally good. As usual, service here is good and atmosphere is wonderful. The food choices are typical Beijing and... More

This was our first experience at an authentic Peking Duck dinner and it was fabulous. They bring your table various courses of Manderin Fish, Shrimp, Pork meatballs, and Peking Duck, along with appetizers, fruit plates, and soup . Our tour guide had a great laugh and took a picture of the Manderin fish as I had to put a napkin... More

Hua's is apparently quite an institution, with 7 restaurants spread across Beijing, but their courtyard restaurant in the colourful food street of Guijie (Ghost Street), in Dongzhimen Inner Street (Dongzhimennei) is their original, opened in 1998. It is a sprawling traditional courtyard with many small rooms, and large inner spaces. We had been recommended Hua's as a great place to... More

This restaurant is very good. It's really good value by western standards and whilst I didn't see the entertainment I expect it would be good. Service is good. Only a few people speak English but the guy that did (sorry don't have his name) was so friendly. Enjoyed our meal and would go again.

I have been here twice, two Decembers in a row. The first time we happened across it as we were wandering down the fabulously atmospheric Ghost Street. The second time we hunted it out with great purose! The two dishes that stuck in my mind were the rack of lamb, with dried chillies and peanuts, and the drunk shrimp, and... More

I have been to a few other famous Peking duck establishments in Beijing but this is one of the more authentic n charming experiences . Walking into the hutong to arrive at the restaurant is alittle daunting in the beginning as it is dark and appears somewhat sketchy. This is comforted by the fact there are many residents still living... More
