Great food, close to art destrict

After a great walk through the art district i was brought to this rest. for business dinner. Delicious food with a little westernized way of presentation - less bones left in. I'll recommend the place and vome back.

The menu was extensive. Lots of choices to make. Food was tasty and different from typical Chinese food I had before. A bit pricey, but worth it.

Style of cooking is unique. Not many restaurants cook this way, unlike Cantonese or Sichuan. Not only is the food tasty, they are visually appealing. The ambience is cozy and welcoming. The lively hutong interior contrasts with its stark wooden door and gray wall exterior. Hard to locate as others have reviewed. From the Silk Street market or Yonganli subway... More

We did a 3 weeks roundtrip in China in August and Najia Xiaoguan restaurant was definitely one of the best picks we had during that time. Due to the positive reviews on trip advisor we took a taxi on the first evening we arrived in Beijing. The restaurant was not that easy to find (at least for the taxi driver... More

I was brought to this restaurant by a local friend. Truly amazing food. The lamb cheek dish is superb, the Kungpao chicken is the best I've ever had, and the peking duck just taste to perfection. We ordered Chinese white wine and it tastes divine. Great ambience in a highly recommended place.

Actually, this is a review of the Najia by the North Gate of Art 798 district. I've eaten here several times, and it's one of my "go-to" restaurants for visiting friends. The food is Imperial Cuisine and offers a good variety. My sister was in heaven when we ate here. The decor is lovely, the atmosphere quiet, and the gardens... More

They're not the usual Chinese food I had all along. So it's a breath of fresh air. A website claimed it's Manchu Imperial cuisine, not too sure how authentic it is. But it does give me a feel it's from the Manchu/Mongol side. Worth a try! Food is pretty good.

Traditional Chinese decor. The food was good but I didn't feel the need to go out of my way to go back as it was located in a business district behind a couple office towers.

Wonderful food, great variety of choices. Everything we ordered was delicious. This restaurant has a mix of old and authentic atmosphere. For us it was the best food experience in Beijing. Go early for dining as you will wait a while to be seated after 7pm.

This restaurant is highly rated, and we wanted to try something unique for one of our last special meals in Beijing. We eat a lot of Asian quinine, so the thought of having authentic Mongolian foods seemed novel. When we got there, there was was waiting list, which we expected. All of the chairs in the lobby were full, and... More
