It's like a party in my mouth...

Such an interesting restaurant. Such amazing food, intresting falvour combinations and tastes. This is nothing like you've ever had -- and you should try it.

After paying the bill to a young female waitress (claiming to be the owner) at this restaurant, we were told that we had given her 2 fake 100 kuai bills. She had switched our real money with fake money to extract an additional 200 kuai out of us. We were very disappointed with her dishonesty. Despite the scam they tried... More

You have to walk about 100metera into the alley off the main road. The food is excellent!! We had the yak meat (wasn't as strange as it might sound) and... More

My wife and I ate here while staying at the Double Happiness Hotel (China hotel names are great) and they recommended "Taste" down the hutong about a block. We thought the food was spectacular but the bar was wack. The red wine was overpriced and not their specialty, the alcohol was tricky to order (the Chinese invented fireworks but can't... More

Fusion food : Asian with Western style presentation. It was late when we came in but it was not an issue to be served and quickly. All Ingredients were very fresh. The place is small but the decoration make it cosy and trendy.

Not too easy to find, but this restaurant is really worth going. We had delicious yak meat, shrimps and a nice "Panda" beer. The restaurant is really small, so, if you go there with more than 2 people, do a reservation in advance. The spot there is really nice and has a nice atmosphere (fancy romance) and the service is...

It's tucked in a small alley way with 5 tables only. Do not go there for the ambiance. They have a weird menu with insects, yak meat and other delicacies. Everything has so much spice and garlic. We had trouble digesting it. Overall having paid almost $200, $80-90 of it for a bad bottle of wine, it definitely wasn't worth... More

This is one of the best meals I've ever had in China. They were all incredibly fresh, pure tasting and delicious, and beautifully presented -- I truly enjoyed every bite. I also ordered the most delicious thing I've ever ate -- a kind of fish cooked with some special spicy. It was so amazing that I just inhaled the whole... More
