Amazing food

We had our best meal in China there. We paid about 130 yuan each and had a myriad of dishes all super tasty. We were just two people and it was already amazing but the table next to us was a big group and had an even greater variety of delicious food. This was the most expensive dinner we had... read more

Quite nice place, very quiet. Many foreigners here. Without menu, more fun. foods are ok... Average Yunnan restaurant. Bit high price. If they are organic could be more good.

We went here for my husband's birthday and it proved the perfect choice as the setting (main courtyard with fairylights and some side rooms), decor and food were wonderful. It was just nicely busy with a mix of clientele. The set menu meant we were surprised at each course, but delighted! Especially memorable was the large fish served opened out... More

Dali is a courtyard restaurant with a very nice atmosphere that serves delicius set meals from Yunnan cuisine. We had, among other things, grilled goat cheese, grilled chilly fish (super!), stir fried mushrooms, dumplings, fried prawns, meat with red cillies, and plenty of rice. Although most things were spicy, my son who is 10 years old (and does not eat... More

This was one of our most enjoyable dinners in Beijing, one that I would definitely recommend! It is located in a very lively neighborhood (nice for walking around also after dinner, many shops and cafès are open until late), and not too easy to find (we had to wander around a bit with our heads immersed in our map), bust...

Tough to find but an interesting place in a small courtyard. They only serve one 7 course fixed menu for RMB150 per person. Huge amounts of food of varying quality. Better places around

This is easily one of the best restaurants I've been to! First, great location and design, with nice and attentive service. Second, the food! It is always a set menu at a very reasonable price for what you are getting. The food always varies, so you could go there every week and get something different. They take allergies into consideration.... More

Unlike most of the hutongs that are starting to look more and more like pedestrian streets in Paris, Dali courtyard is situated in a more genuine sort of hutong! Food there is very tasty and the atmosphere is really nice. The service is acceptable. Definitely recommended!

For a different experience in Beijing, go to Dali Courtyard. The set menu includes many fish and vegetable dishes and they will tailor it to your preferences: great for vegetarians!
