Nice setting and good food

My wife and I enjoyed this restaurant very much. The service was friendly and they made a point to make us feel special. Not that familiar with this type of food to compare, but what we had was pretty good.

The ambience here is almost palpable, though it is perhaps a bit too dark making menus hard to read. The Thai food is very good, and the variety overwhelming. Sadly the service is haphazard and uncoordinated. That doesn't mean it's not worth a try, it is, very much so.

Vietnamese and Chinese food. I had the typical Beijing Duck (北京烤鸭 Beijing Kaoya). It was delicious. The cooker cut it right besides our table. The staff doesn't speak English but they are nice and politely, make efforts to get our orders in English.

The food in this restaurant is delicious. Try beef in black pepper sauce! And you sit with a view on the lake in a beautiful atmosphere. Afterwards cross the brigde and look out for Roots Reggae Bar which is not here on trip advisor. Nice live music of an Uighurian band and very good cocktails.

Overlooking the tip of the lake, Nuage is beautifully situated. The food is Vietnamese and is good but not fantastic. Pricing is decent. Problem is the service: from reception were my reservation was first lost, then found, then declared cancelled (this ticked off the concierge at my hotel when reported), and then we were seated overlooking the lake (as was...

No doubt there are many decent places in this busy lakeside area but one of our group had eaten here before and it was worth finding it again. The duck with orange sauce was simple but excellent and the crab spring rolls were a good generous starter. Service was good and the view across the lake from the first floor... More

Good Vietnamese food in busy, scenic Houhai area. Clean, upscale space. Everyone is friendly and the food is very good. Recommend for lunch.

Food is missing on taste and abundant on fat. Mango smoothie is mainly ice. I already finished my meal, while my friend is still waiting for his. The prices are high, Tsintao is 30y, wines are around 50y/glass. Most foods are around 70. The warning sign was a 15% service charge stated in the menu, which is a telltale for... More

We had dinner at this restaurant, accompanied by Beijing residents who, although not Chinese, speak Chinese very well (so we don't know if a non-Chinese speaker would have difficulty). We climbed all the way to the roof to get a seat, with a wonderful view of this vibrant neighborhood. The food was very good, as was the service. We enjoyed... More

Nothing fancy here, but the chefs specials were very tasty and easy to order as menu is in English! I would definitely have the vegetable spring rolls again. No waiting for a table, but seats by the window would have given a lovely view over the lake! A bit more expensive than the surrounding venues, and service was a bit... More
