Just back from China and I booked Black Sesame Kitchen for the first night we were in Beijing, having read the reviews on TA. It was a fantastic night, sitting around the kitchen table and sampling dish after delicious dish, chatting with people from all over the world and enjoying the wonderful hospitality of the kitchen staff. The food was just wonderful - 11 courses in total, and each one a delight to try. The wine flowed as did the conversation - such a wonderful atmosphere, and you could watch the next course being cooked as you ate the one on the table. Definitely very good food, excellent value and a good all round experience. I would go back if I return to Beijing.
