Great experience

Everything was delicious, including the sweet dumplings. The restaurant is situated in the atmospheric Hutong and I loved all... read more

Mr. Shi's was right by our hotel (The Orchid) so we decided to stop in. The dumplings were so good. You can even watch them being made.

If you have the time in Bejing go along to Mr Shi it is just a dream of a place, up one of the hutongs opposite the noodle shop, but when you get your head around the vast menu the place is a dream. There is a steady stream of take away deliveries but this is just a part of... More

One of my friends chose this place based on online reviews, The menu is a bit confusing, but the gist of the combos is you can order 12 dumplings, 6 each of 2 types of cheese-and-meat-filled for 85 yuan; or 5 each of 3 types of various non-cheese dumplings for 55 yuan (that's what I was able to gather anyway...

in this lovely and lively Hutong they have 2 addresses one facing the other. One for dumplings, one for noodles. Very affordable meals. Everything cooked in front of you and extra fresh.

We happened to stumble across this restaurant while wandering through a very lovely hutang, and we were so happy we did! The atmosphere was so lovely, with spacious tables and very eclectic decor. The dumplings were incredible! there were countless options (almost to many to choose from), we settled on the tasting platter, and were blown away. Hands down the... More

Going to a to hyped trip advisor favorite isn't easy, but Mr Shi's did not only meet my expectations but exceeded them. Excellent dumplings for almost nothing, and the surrounding hip street was for free as well.
