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

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.
