“Best Chinese food ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Tip: reserve in advance. Could be hard to get a table.
Pros: gorgeous decor, terrific food.

This restaurant is located in the embassies neighborhood. Its a bubble in the chaotic, dirty and polluted Beijing.
The decor is truly amazing. I loved every single detail.
We ordered a couple of dishes to share: pineapple rice, mushrooms, grilled tofu, pork meat, eggs... Everything was delicious.
We also had lime with mint water. Amazing. Very refreshing and rebooting.
I was afraid to try a Chinese restaurant in Beijing because Im not a huge fan of it. Normally I avoid Chinese food. But this meal was really yummy.
I highly recommend it.

“Good food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

Enjoyed the pineapple rice and beef with mint, which was thinly sliced beef wrapped around mint leaves with nice sauce over it. Refreshing and delicious! Also had a rice wine served in bamboo. Staff attentive and helpful. Had a good time.

“Yum!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

Loved the steamed rice and pineapple, oh and the cheese with numbing pepper. The drink special was particularly refreshing. Try to get a table on the first or third floors for the best ambiance.

The food was delicious and the service quick. The crispy potato balls were delicious. The menu had photos which made it easy to order.

“Food OK. Service below level. ”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013 via mobile

Food ok. Service below level. Bit trendy. Would not recommend. Seating outside possible. Easy to find. Will look tonight for different place to have dinner.
