“Very clean and modern. Very tasty too!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

If you like to have a change from meaty Chinese food. This place is for you. You can choose buffet with variety of food either a la carte menu. There is desert and drink from buffet too. We eat too much because food is very nice. Staff is very helpful too.

“Best food I had in China”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

I loved this place. The buffet was great, so many great vegetarian dishes. Great value for what you get. I would highly recommend this place for both vegetarians and meat eaters.

“Best vegetarian restaurant in Beijing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013 via mobile

It is just amazing . The food is excellent , staff is friendly and you can try a lot of new dishes and tastes. I am not a fan of fake meat or fish, But there is enough choice.
Nice atmospere. A relief in China because sometimes it is difficult to find vegetarisme food.

“Best place to take friends who are red meat eaters!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

Xu Xiang Zhai is in a historic location near the Temple to Confucius (Guozijian) and the Lama Temple (Yonghegong), both well worth visiting. The lunch buffet (open until 2pm) offers great variety and quantity of conventional-seeming Chinese food, for a very reasonable price. The restaurant is elegant and clean and the service is good. Best of all, you can take red-meat eating friends along and tell them afterwards that they're been eating flavoured bean curd. They may not believe you!

“After the Lama temple...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012



Its a buffet (but there is an a la carte section as well), quite cheap but food is of good quality and the variety is huge! Frequented by monks its worth a visit given its proximity to the Lama temple. I would say more lunch then dinner.
