Great authentic Beijing hot pot, which is served in individual hot pots rather than a communal one. Service is good but expect to chase down staff a bit. Great, quality ingredients and the broth is good. Sneak outside to the restaurant's 6F terrace to catch a great glimpse of Jingshan Park.

First day in Beijing, we were actually looking for a McDonalds or KFC but found none. Hungry and tired I found this restaurant so we decided to try it out. It was past noon time and the place was really full and we ushered at the waiting area. After 30 minutes or so, we finally had our seat. Prior to... More

All over Beijing you can see the special Hotpot restaurants, the Hotpots have a little “chimney” unlike the Mongolian ones and everybody at the table gets their own. This restaurant is close to the Houhai area, so it makes a great stop before having some beers at the lake. It fills up quickly with locals even on weeknights after 6... More

Food - a new cuisine for me, beijing hotpot, delicious and fun to cook at your table. Staff - very helpful, my lack of chinese and their lack of english was never an issue, they went out of their way to make sure we understood each other, and the menu is thorough. Atmosphere - all locals, clearly all enjoying the... More

We were reccomended to visit this particular hot-pot restaurant by a Beijing local. It is one of the top hot-pot restaurants in Beijing offering beijing style hot-pot which is not spicy. The restaurant looks like a real place for local people and does not aim to the "tourist catcher" which is always a plus in my mind. Most of the... More

This was the first time we had experience true Beijing Hot Pot. The waitresses were fabulous at showing us how to use the hotpot to cook our meal. The menu had english and we guessed about out much to order and it worked out perfect. The service was impeccable. The waitresses were always attending to our needs, keeping our hot... More

The hot pot was tasty, but the service is what really sets this restaurant apart from others like it in China! I've eaten at lots of hot pot places, but the service here was incredible! The servers were constantly refilling our teacups and being sure we had everything we needed without us asking. At one point my mom splashed sauce... More

We found this restaurant after walking from Tiananmen Square, through the Forbidden City and the park with our children (10 and 13). What a great find for lunch! This style of restaurant involves cooking your own meat and vegetables in a pot of boiling water/stock at your table. The food was really fresh and delicious and the staff were extremely... More

We visited here on our first night and were totally unaware that this was a Hot Pot restaurant. We hose it as we were tired, it was near our hotel and it had a lovely looking front area. In fact we did not even know what the deal was with Hot Pot restaurants and only AFTER ordering and getting assistance... More
