Great Chinese Food

I don't know about you but without speaking the local language ordering/choosing traditional Chinese food can often be hit and miss for my taste buds. Here the pressure is off - with one set menu and set price per person everything comes to your table - whether you like it or not - but trust me you... read more

Let this restaurant transport you on a culinary journey you will not forget. You don't even have to worry about what to order! The table d'hôte offers an amazing array of Sichuan plates. The ambience is exceptional, just getting to this place is an adventure! It's an experience you shouldn't pass up!

We shared a dinner for 3 on Halloween, arriving a bit later than the other guests (around 9pm), which was not ideal. We were late because the cab from the Rosewood Hotel took a lot longer than we thought it would. I would suggest that the cab not go straight down Dongcheng Road on a Saturday night. It was bumper...

This is a wonderful restaurant, tucked away in a hutong with great food and atmosphere. Been there several times and never disappointed, the dishes are varied, vegetables, meat, fish and all delicious. It's a great place to relax and have a lovely lunch or dinner.

We had lunch here in the courtyard. Food was fabulous. You don't have to order as you get whatever the chef has prepared and everything is just yummy. It's located in a traditional courtyard house, which gave a nice view of hutong life. A must I think if you visit Beijing

Interesting menu that changes constantly. The food is superb. The ambiance is fantastic. A courtyard restaurant nestled in the Hutongs. Have someone that you want to impress? Take them here.

In a place like Beijing this a one of a kind restaurant. Whereas in other places menus are generally as big and as long as the Bible, this one offers just a set menu with a few plates, no choice... very strange. If it was at least a trick to offer an exceptional tasting experience it would be fine, but... More
