It’s a good place to take visitors who want to try Chinese food. They have dumplings of course and also a variety of chinese dishes. A lot of the dishes also have some western elements. In the hutongs. Food is reasonably priced too.

This is one of our favorite spots in Beijing. The variety and creativity in the dumplings is amazing. Great atmosphere and service too.

Since years we join mr shi when coming back to Beijing. The dumplings are delicious and the restaurant has already cult status

This place is exactly what we were looking for, searching the back street’s we heard that these dumplings were good and they didn’t disappoint. Definitely recommend, great dumplings in a nice little setting. Yum!

Chinese dumpling restaurant but the customers were mostly westerners and young locals. There’s lots of dumplings to choose from and we were spoilt for choices but I particularly liked the pan fried curry dumplings. I think we can eat all the different types of dumplings...here. I wouldn’t mind coming back again to try all the dumplings they have.More

Nice place in a nice location. There is a waitress very unpolite. Huge choice of dumplings but very very expensive. We ordered two types (one boiled and one fried with cheese) and these were disgusting. We finish with the sweet one (chocolate and apple) and...it was very good.More

Listen to the few negative reviews, I didn’t and I regret it! Beijing has amazing dumplings that are not here... Negatives: -Very average -Over priced (it’s 饺子!) -Tiny and with 2 waitresses in a cramped atmosphere (trying to appeal to foreigners) it was very slow...service. Positive: -It’s in the Hutongs (but there’s more Hutongs with better dumplings!) Save your pennies/stomach/time and keep looking on TripAdvisor for a good dumpling place!More

Very average dumplings. As this is not easy to find we were expecting something out of this world. Service was bad. Waitress rude and unhelpful. Dumplings were average Ambience in the garden was nice. Perhaps a better place to eat in summer.

The dumplings were so good here we had to go back more than once! The prices are low and the quality great.

This place serves the best dumplings and vegetable dishes! Really reasonably priced, super tasty and clean. Would highly recommend! It's cosy and lovely - if I visit Beijing again I will certainly return
