“Wonderful meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

A truly great restaurant. A group of us went and the food is just so different to the Chinese food we are used to having. Nearly every dish was interesting and very tasty. The duck was exceptional both in taste and presentation. I am not even sure what some of the other dishes were but they were all very enjoyable.

Their live seafood room is quite impressive - both for the seafood itself but also the prices!

“Hilarious Surprise Dinner Time entertainment”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

We had a great night at Hua's Courtyard, the food was very good and service impeccable what made the meal though was the circus show that took place in the middle of dinner. An very entertaining night out.

“Excellent meal-even while on a tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

This was a wonderful meal. I don't usually expect much from meals while on an organized tour. This restaurant was a fabulous surprise. Every dish was well prepared with super good flavors. They are know for their Peking Duck-not a favorite of mine but I did like this one, There were plenty of locals-always a good sign that this is a good place to eat.

“Excellent Beijing experience for tourists”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

Despite being a globe trekker, I still enjoy a good tourist 'trap' when done well. Hua's Restaurant knows what a foreigner is looking for, traditional Chinese/Mandarin food at a fair price in a setting that looks great in photos. As a bonus they offer entertainment like noodle dancing, acrobatics, and magic. Really a safe bet for families, business people, or anyone looking for that unique dinner experience without sacrificing quality.

Food recommendations: I had two great plates, a spicy noodle dish and Beijing (not Peking) Duck, the best meal I had in Beijing.

“Excellent fare for tourists”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

Large airy courtyard restaurant with small traditional music group and excellent food and service. The Peking duck, lamb and chicken wings in paper (their specialities) are first rate. Great attentive service.
