We celebrated my daughter's 24th birthday with a group of her friends at this restaurant--her choice. The setting was funky/chic, perfect for this crowd. The food was generally good and well suited to this vegetarian group, and the portions large enough for sharing. Some of the dishes sounded interesting but lacked in flavor.

This restaurant near Sanlitun is very nocely decorated. The dishes arrive quickly and there's a lot of choice. Our favorite is the goat cheese and the pineapple rice!

Whilst service was not very good and one dish (spicy noodle soup) rather tasteless, we did enjoy or lunch. Will we go back? Probably not as there are many great Yunnan restaurants in Beijing (such as the superb Dali Courtyard).

The decoration may not please everybody with the walls and ceilings in raw concrete but the food is just excellent. Flavours of herbs, citruses and fruits are in every dish which will give you an unexpected surprise as the gilled fish which looks just average but tastes fantastic. I remember the mint and beef rolls as an appetizer , the... More

We were a party of six, and ordered 15 different dishes that were all excellent - certainly a new take on traditional dishes. Service was nice and more or less prompt. No English was spoken, but you can still point, so no problem. The fancy menu had only few notes in English, but, in good old fashion of Chinese restaurants,... More

Large place but good food, including wild porcini with chili, beef rolls w mint, roast goat cheese, tofu w leek flower, fried pea sprouts, etc. Service was ok, had trouble with English. Nothing in the way of cocktails.

This place is a nice place to visit for friends and colleagues, price is still mid range and need to book during busy days. Try the pineapple rice, goat cheese, potato balls and fried egg with jasmine. Good ambience and once done, you could also have some desserts and cafe just a few shops down.

Visited In & Out for dinner with colleagues and some business partners and had a thoroughly enjoyable evening. We ordered a range of Yunnan style fish, beef, chicken, vegetable and rice dishes and shared them in the usual 'chew & chat' style. It was a casual evening with good food and company that went for over 3 hours. I found... More

The food here is delicious but the service is a little hit or miss depending on how busy they are and where you get seated. Overall a great place, but here's a little secret for you, if you go on Mondays and everyone at the table puts their phones in a little tin and not play with it at all,... More

The setting is really nice but the dishes are not all that great. We tried quite a few and it was hit or miss. Even so, a nice dinner.
