“A guaranteed success”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

The courtyard is cozy and the food is great. This restaurant is a guaranteed success and recommendable for everyone visiting Beijing. Despite its location and traditionall atmosphere, it mostly caters to westernes, but it still feels like a true Chinese experience. Everyone I have brought there have been very fund of the place.

“Amazing location, lovely food correct price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

The atmosphere is always lovely, the food great and the service quite up-standard.
The price is very correct considering that you always finish the dinner full
The wine choice is limited but good: it is a good way to enjoy Chinese food with falvours which a foreign can almost 80% like.
Better to book a table and to ask a place outside in the summer season

“A hidden gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

Finding this restaurant is like finding the secret garden! The outside looks pretty drab, and then you walk through to the beautiful courtyard area! I would definitely reccomend booking if you would like to sit in the courtyard. We sat around the courtyard but indoors, which was fine.

The food is a set menu, which is great. There is also a reasonable wine list. The dishes are delicious, and the meal culminates with a beautiful fish dish.

“Meanwhile just average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

I am going to that restaurant in last 3 years and atmosphere is declining. Meanwhile the restaurant is very full so it is hard to enjoy the nice atmosphere of the house. Last time I were there all the food were coming so fast that we didn't had time for to much talking. Now there are many others Yunann Restaurants as well so I would recommend to go to other restaurants

“So delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Unbelievably delicious Yunnan regional food. Fixed menu of the tastiest food, just keeps on coming. Make sure you are hungry. We went twice it was so wonderful and the variety of seating makes for a new experience each time. Once in a private room the in a open verandah overlooking the courtyard. On a warm Beijing evening with the fairy light, candles this can't be beaten for a unique experience. Have the Yunnan beer, perfect. I want to go back now.
