Absolutely loved this restaurant when visited in June 2012. Enjoyed three fabulous meals here, tiny restaurant was packed every day, servers were engaged and attentive, and male chef was delighted that we loved his food. Such a disappointing contrast on our visit this week. Restaurant was empty, while others along the same alleyway were crowded. Waitress sat us down with... More

Overall very average, ordered food then watched them go and buy chicken for dish, ordered 2 drinks they were warm, I don't expect to get a warm beer, I ordered ginger ale and got tonic water. Got our main dishes but had to ask for the rice after a lengthy wait. Value for money there are much better places I... More

My 5 kids and I went to Taste because we were staying at the Double Happiness hotel and it was closely. The food was very good and the prices were great. There were many things on the menu that they were out of but as long as you are flexible, you will definitely enjoy your meal.

My first try in this particular cuisine. I can't really remember what we have eaten and is because my sister did the ordering overall. Yunnan cuisine uses chilli in their dishes which makes it better for me. Overall experience was great. Will definitely be back.

We were staying at the Double Happiness Hotel and read about Taste on TripAdvisor. As mentioned, it is on the same alley as the Double Happiness but only about 50m in from the busy Dongsi Street. It is a very small restaurant, only 3 tables and seating for 10. During our stay in March, we never saw more than one... More

Outstanding food, friendly owner, and a cute decor in this little place. Feature some really unique cuisine from my favorite part of China. Better than a large chain like Lost Heaven, but not quite as good as some of the little hole in the wall places I've been to.

Having just arrived in Beijing after a long trip, we wanted to go for some good chinese food near our hutong hotel. Only a steps away, we ventured into this tiny little restaurant which had only a handful of tables. Despite the lack of other customers or any background noise whatsoever, the food was delicious & we had a hugely... More

An amazing little restaurant very close to the Double happiness courtyard hotel. Only six tables so be prepared to wait, but it is definitely worth it! Staff are friendly and speak English. The food is out of this world, amazing flavours, beautifully cooked and reasonably priced!

Only 10 seats in the restaurant. The prices were reasonable, but not cheap. Expensive for this type of restaurant. The food was excellent - but brought to the table in any order. We had a bottle of excellent Tibetan red wine for 160y. The sweet and sour soup was amazing - full of wonderful herbs, spices and twigs! Highly recommended... More
