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

The set menu was 200 kuai, expensive for China. The food was one of the better meals I had in China. It would have been a great meal for 100 kuai, but not for 200. I guess my expectations were high based on the other reviews on this site. I just don't think it was good enough to justify the... More

Great food, relaxing atmosphere amidst a busy and chaotic hutong life out the old wooden doors. Sense of history and place to the space. Reasonable prices. What a treat!

The hutong atmosphere is really unique for visitors to Beijing. The set menu takes the guess work out of ordering and there is something for everyone. Choose an evening when the pollution level is acceptable and have a romantic meal in the courtyard. Nearby you will find Nanluoguxiang Street - perfect for an after dinner stroll.

Set in a traditional Huron courtyard, covered. There seemed to be more tables in separate area. The food was exceptional, although only a couple of the dishes were unique to the Huton, the rest more common Chinese fare. Fully enjoyed it all.

Our experience this year was nowhere near as good as last year's. Yes, the courtyard is very pretty, and the food tastes fine. But last year the food was spectacular, very imaginative, beautifully presented and much more varied, with exciting flavours. This year there was a salad and three other vegetable dishes (one of pretty tasteless and very greasy fried... More

If you like a nice dinner outside this is the place, you will forget that you are in one of the biggest city in the world. Nice courtyard setting, very pleasant atmosphere, nice music, nice lights. I have been there many times and still going there from time to time, the food is good but it could be better considering... More

Yunnan food - we all know what that is, right? Yeah, ok, maybe not. So grab your GPS, compass, tuning fork, whatever you need to navigate to this place and step inside their AMAZEBALLS courtyard - with the difference being you don't have to order a damn thing. Ssshhhh, just let it happen. If you're a party of 4 to... More

Not easy to find. Look for the Red Lanterns! Worth the effort to locate the Restaurant. Simple outdoor courtyard setting. They ask what you do not eat and based on this out comes a large and plentiful supply of Yunnan style Chinese food! Will be back for sure with visitors as a unique experience.

If you looking for an really cosy restaurant at the Beijing Hutong´s, I can recommend you this Yunnan Restaurant. It its quite hard to find, but once you there you can not imagine how nice the courtyard is. Every evening there have a Set Menu, includes 9 dishes f.e. Fish, Shrimps, Vegetable, Salat, Beef, Chicken. You can add some more... More
