“This is Lewes, Jake”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

OK, so we're not in Chinatown, still less at the top of the Shard, but if you choose carefully you'll have decent Chinese food at a price that won't make your eyes water. Crispy duck is always good, as are the squid and the scallops, and a vegan friend swears by their fried tofu and vegetables. There's even a Louis Latour Chablis on the wine list at a reasonable (for a restaurant) 25 quid.
The manager is smart, funny and incredibly friendly: no Gerrard Street surliness here.
The last time we were at the Beijing, the place was almost empty, but there was a constant stream of take-out customers; the locals obviously rate the product.

“Decent value”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

The food was a bit hit and miss with some dishes being excellent and others being fairly average. However the service was excellent and it was good value - especially the set menus and the 'eat as much as you like' menu.

Overall it was a good evening out and a nice experience - but I've certainly had better tasting Chinese food elsewhere.

“The best Chinese food in Lewes, lots of veggie options”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

Overall, this is a middle-of-the-road Chinese restaurant, 'cheep and cheerful' if you will. It is not overly authentic, but still manages to be rather tasty. I did find a few of the dishes to be a bit greasy, but still palatable. The service is very friendly and it doesn't seem to get overly busy here. BIG kudos to this restaurant for offering meat substitute options (Chick-veg) on their menu. In a town with a disproportionate number of chain Italian restaurants and pubs it is welcome to have some alternatives, even if they don't compare with authentic and high-end Chinese cuisine. Definitely worth a try for an informal night out.
