For anyone trying to find this little restaurant — in the 4th Alley off Dongsi Beidajie — it's real name (on the door) is Xiangyu. The name 'The Moment' is not displayed on the outside.

Absolutely incredible! Nice atmosphere, I feel very comfortable dining here. Very warm and kind service staff. Menu not huge but something for everybody. Some dishes quite spicy, but really good. I love these spicy dishes, very special but fabulous. Nice price too. My best dinning experience in Beijing.

had a dinner here last summer with 2 BFFs during a trip to Beijing.As a 100% purely born and grown in Hunan guy,i cant tell of any differences between dishes i ate here and those at my hometown in Hunan.so it is definitely native.oh,and the cost is absolutely affordable to a student like me.lol

Well,my friends thanked me for treating them in such a nice restaurant, and I'm sure I'll come back again. What the most impressive thing is that the food tastes excellent. It was the first time I ate Hunan cuisine, but I believe I start to fall in love with it. Besides this, we think that the serxice and atmosphere here... More

Its really a kind of SPICY I ever tried. different from the Mexico food,or the Sichuan food.the spicy would stimulates the action of the heartmjust like wine. Also, the restaurant is equipped with nice environment all around.The style is totally different with up and downstairs, I love it !
