“Great location, delicious food and great presentatition of the dishes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

This restaurant is very nice, both inside and outside areas. We had a drink at the bar before our table was ready. Service was OK, little bit below what you would expect from such as restaurant.
Food was really good and dishes presented in a wonderful way. All we ordered was good, no exception.
I will go again if back to Beijing and I would suggest it to everybody; compared to European prices the value of this restaurant is very good.
POSITIVE ASPECTS
Very good food
Very nice atmposphere

NEGATIVE ASPECTS
Service slighlty below expectations (but OK)

“Very nice place for a business lunch or romantic dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013 via mobile

Wish is definitely a restaurant to recommand if you are looking for a place for a business lunch or a romantic dinner and if you are in the Lido area. Food is very tasty even if not particularly cheap.

“Some people seem to like it...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

It is not that Wish is a bad restaurant. It is just not the wonderful restaurant you might expect from reading some of the other reviews. The quality of the food is fine. The dishes sometimes resemble what you would find at DaDong or at China Lounge. But the dining experience itself is pretentious (in an amusing under achieving sort of way) and over-priced (even relative to other would-be-DaDongs) and the service is a little confused. Wish certainly does not deserve the high rating it currently has on Trip Advisor, at least not for discerning diners. This is principally a restaurant for the newly moneyed, and the management and inexperienced staff cater specifically to this clientele.

I understand the appeal of the outside seating area (though only if you are smoking cigars to compete with Beijing pollution) and they certainly made an effort with the decor at some stage, and with the glassed-in upper floor (though don't sit there in summer or winter), but don't go to Wish if you expect an excellent meal with excellent service, in sophisticated surroundings. You will pay for it, but that is not what you will get.

“Great Fusion Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

Each food with own distinctive taste with great presentation! A great food selection, well balanced with western and eastern combination. Try the signature dishes!

It's another non-smoking restaurant in Beijing!
The price is at the high side but the good service, great food and comfortable dining ambience is justify to it.

“Great Food with great atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

The restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating. Clean and neat arrangement provides comfortable environment for diners. The restaurant serves fusion western and chinese cuisine. Food are tasty with great presentation.
Diners are mainly business diners but others may come for special events. You may receive a special meal if you are celebrating birthday here.
Must try the minced meat with pita, delicious!
