Visited here with a friend in December so the main Courtyard wasn't open but that didn't spoil the ambience at all. Interior great, staff really helpful and friendly. The set menu was amazing and allows you got try stuff that maybe you wouldn't normally try, choice of wine/beer very good and whilst price maybe considered high (only relatively in comparison...

It is quite pricey as you eat what they served, ambience is nice and dishes plus beers will cost you around RMB180 per person. It is inside one of those hutongs. One off experiences.

A few minutes away from the buzzing Nanluoguxiang lies this nice, small courtyard that offers a set menu with local dishes. Quality and size of each dish was really good and allowed us to experience some traditional, but yet different from the ordinary, flavours. During our visit for dinner, we paid 150 Yuan (no drinks) for around 8 dishes.

It's a set menu with no real options but having said that it was some of the nicest food I had during my trip to China. Its also a lovely setting which makes you completely forget about the hustle and bustle just one street over to let you relax outside. Great service, great portions, great flavours, great price, great place.

The location was difficult to locate but worth it when you get there. The set menu forces you to try a variety of delicious food. It was predominantly seafood but that could have just been the night we went. 150 a person, so if that's in your budget I'd say give it a go!

Very good restaurant to taste food from the region of Yunnan. What is interesting is that you don't have the choice of the menu and the chief selects for you different plates that gives you the chance to discover many different flavors from this region. The must is to go there for a dinner in Summer and have a table... More

This was our first dinner in Beijing and we could not have enjoyed it more! The Dali is situated in the Hutong district of Dong Chen which is full of quirky guitar shops bars and cafe, so made for an interesting after dinner stroll. The picturesque restaurant courtyard has great atmosphere. There are also tables inside with air conditioning but... More

We had no trouble finding it because we had read that it was difficult and looked out for all the mentioned landmarks. The courtyard is beautiful and although it was VERY hot and there was an air-conditioned room we chose the courtyard as did everyone else. Some old trees with fairy lights added to the atmosphere. There is no menu... More
