Tasty indeed!

I wish to introduce this review by saying that if you expect to find here your local western Chinese restaurant dishes, you better go somewhere else; perhaps just stay at home. This small restaurant (just 10 seats) has a good selection of unusual dishes. We tried a few of them, and every single... read more

I ate here the second night I was in Beijing. It is right on a lively pedestrian street which is a good location. The service was good, and they were kind enough to let me do take out, as my wife didn't feel like eating out. The price was very inexpensive, and the quality of the food seemed very good.... More

Very small, 4 table restaurant in the same Hutong as the Double Happiness Courtyard hotel. The Mango chicken was superb. Don't worry if it is empty, the Hutong is small so not exactly a huge clientele walking past. We went twice and both times, others came in while we were eating. Lovely inexpensive meal.

Taste was one of three local restaurants recommended by the reception staff at the Double Happiness Courtyard Hotel which is further down Dongsi Si Tiao. Their suggestions were good but quite different from one another - this was definitely the quiet option. It's a small place and we were virtually the only customers. The location, just a bit down the... More

The food at this restaurant was delicious. We had vegetable spring rolls, sweet & sour prawns, spicy tilapia fish (my favourite) and rice cooked in bamboo, the drinks were lemonade and draft tsingtao, we finished off the meal with goats cheese fried dessert which was very nice. Ms.Deng was so friendly and made the meal even more pleasurable with her... More

I wouldn't wish for my worst enemy to eat at this restaurant. To say that the food was bad is a huge understatement. The food nauseated us so much that we barely were able to eat half of it. Service was slow, and the food took forever to come out. Prices were sky high for what you get. Spring rolls... More

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.
