Like others we suprised ourselves by finding this resturant pretty easily despite being tucked away in an alley in the hutongs. Great courtyard setting and interesting set menu which is pretty good value for Beijing. Ironically we finnished our 5 weeks in China in Yunnan so this menu primed us for treats to come. Overall the set 7 course menu... More

I came here in May and had the set lunch. After a long time negotiating recommendations and making final selections I was a little disappointed with this restaurant. The food was fine, but just didn't really inspire me in any way.

I brought my sister here when she came to visit me in Beijing. Wow--I should have eaten here ages ago! It's 130 RMB per person for a set menu, and the food just keeps on coming. The prawns were one of the best things I've ever had in my mouth, and even the slightly rubbery fungus we didn't recognize had... More

I have been to Dali Courtyard various times throughout the past year and it has never disappointed. In contrary it has always been outstanding. If in summer or winter, for lunch or dinner. The set menu is creative and has a beautiful range of flavours and textures. The setting is beautiful, especially on a nice summer night the garden could... More

Very good food, set menu not too expensive. A lovely setting eating out in the courtyard. There seemed to be almost only foereigners, but a couple of local parties too. Very helpful and professional staff. The food was beautifully presented and mostly very good. one or two of the many dishes less than spectacular but still good. A most enjoayble... More

We had one of our favourite meals during our China trip at Dali Courtyard. We found it quite easily but this might have been luck of spotting the tiny sign down an alleyway! Having a set menu was great as we got to sample dishes we wouldn't have known to order on our own. The fish was delicious and just... More

Not sure how easy this place would be to find if you didn't know it. We went with my son who's been living in Beijing for a while. Loved the atmosphere out in the courtyard. Food just arrived without any indication of what was coming next. Tasty and authentic. Good value at 150 yuan each. A really nice evening.

Spent a week honeymooning in Beijing. We tried a half dozen restaurants around the city and Dali Courtyard was by far the best. Yunnan cuisine with fresh ingredients and beautifully paired dishes. The restaurant is in a lovely outdoor HuTong courtyard, but there is indoor seating as well. The food is very reasonable priced and comes prix fixe. Hard to... More

The most attractive about this place is its location. It is hidden in a hutong and the courtyard of the restaurant is lovely. We chose to sit indoor because of the air pollution. Food is alright (the grilled fish and the mixed mushrooms are my favourite dishes) but it is a bit strange that they do not serve al lat... More
