Dali Courtyard is "hidden" in the hutongs and it might be best to check up the location beforehand. There is no menu, they serve a "fixed" menu, which is what the chef will serve up on that day based on what's available. Wait staff will...More

I had read great reviews of the restaurant and wanted to give it a try. It was definitely worth it! There is no menu, only a set price for whatever the chef is going to whip up that might--150RMB/person. The food was very delicious and...More

Charming setting for a set menu. It can be a bit difficult to find but well worth the effort. Delicate and unusual flavors unlike most of what you'll find in Beijing.

We were staying only a couple of hundred metres from this restaurant so easy to get there and find. A young guy explained that they only have fixed menu so we decided to try. It started with a tofu with chilli and as a tofu...More

It's a bit difficult to find the location as it's not in the Main Street but need to walk in a small street. Outside completely like a old residential house but when going inside, the decoration is very impressive. Nice and simple. Good menu is...More

The restaurant can be hard to find since it's hidden in a hutong area. The restaurant isn't very big and they keep the place rather dark with only candles as a light source on the tables. The menu is a set one and you don't...More

We schlepped across Beijing to find this little darling. It's not the most salubrious setting, but that adds to its charm. Largely frequented by Westerners, rather than Beijingers, so not sure how 'echt' it is for those who crave authenticity. The food and service were...More

Like most good restaurants in Beijing, this place is a little hard to find. The main sitting area is the courtyard of an old chinese residence. Most of the old flavour of the place was kept which gave this restaurant a nostalgic feel. Service is...More

I read the reviews, which were generally very favorable with a couple of sour notes thrown in by one or two reviewers, and so approached the meal with cautious optimism. Firstly, it's quite a say to find. Secondly, we walked in with no booking on...More
