I wasn't in the Sanlitun restaurant but in the Zhongguancun one, I guess there are several in Beijing anyway. It was recommended by Chinese friends. Very good Yunnan cuisine in a nice environment. I really liked the dishes with mushrooms.

There's a great roof terrace at this place in Taikooli shops. It's not a bad destination. The food is not great, similar prices to Lost Heaven but no where near the quality. Still if you're in Sanlitun and want some Yunnan eats in a nice...More
