This branch of the popular Cantonese restaurant chain has the nicest location of the group: a three floor, temple decorated affair just outside the South gate of Ditan Park, across the 2nd Ring Road from the Lama Temple. The DimSum is not the best in Beijing, that accolade belongs to Lei Garden, but it is inexpensive, tasty and arrives quickly. And located at the edge of some of the last authentic Hutong (alleyways) in Beijing it makes a nice place to start or finish a walking or bicycle tour of old Beijing. (There is an honest bicycle rental place attached to the Lama Temple International Youth Hostel in BeiXinQiaoTouTiao Alley a few streets South of the Lama Temple.) So a great place to take first time Beijing visitors, but also nice for a cheep and cheerful Cantonese meal with friends.
