Can't fault the food here, super tasty local food at very reasonable price. We ordered the Bo Bo chicken, some soup and a couple of other snack type of dishes, all very nice. The chicken was a big hit for the family. Before I ordered, hubby said one chicken would be too much for us but as soon... read more

We read the earlier reviews, so went in with lowered expectations. Note- the restaurant is closed from 2pm to 5pm. We found out the hard way. We asked a local cab driver to take us to the best local food place. He dropped us off here, but it was only 4pm and they did not open until 5pm for dinner... More

Truly a favourite place for locals. We reached late (about 8:30pm) just in time before their last order at 9pm. We ordered their award-winning chicken dish (gourd chicken - its on their first page), melt-in-your-mouth pork belly and dumplings (minimum order 3pcs). Taste authentic.

The dining hall is huge & simple. Place was packed & noisy. The menu was in Chinese but fortunately had pictures to help us decide. Every dish we had was tasty & delicious. the lamb rack, salt pepper chicken & small fried fish was perfectly cooked, it was tender & so well marinated.. Stir fried veg was ok. The bun... More

Not touristy, this is what makes the restaurant so good. Great food, many options. Menu only in Chinese but we were surprised to find some of the waitresses speak English and understand what you want easier than the ones in many of the restaurants in Beijing. Easy to find.

Picture menu with chinese only. If you dont have anyone in your group that speaks chinese, just go with whatever looks good, everything we've tried here has been tasty. If you can't decide, tell your waitress what you like and ask for recommendations. We do this all over the place, and results are generally good. A bit more pricey that... More

We decided to give this restaurant a try as it was close to our hostel and had such good reviews. It's on the 2nd floor of Xian Hotel. The place was packed with locals & we had to wait for a table for 4. They had a picture menu but NO english & NO english speaking staff. So we took... More

We had dinner in the East Street one as well as the Fenghao East Road one. The cuisine menu and food quality are basically the same, hence I mixed the 2 dinners in this review. First talk about the East Street. The restaurant is decorated and atmosphered in typical Chinese style of upper class, bright and clean. Out of the... More
