The first time I walked up to Susu I was sure that Apple maps had led me on yet another wild goose chase. Through a rather unassuming (and unmarked) door at the end of the alley, Susu opens up into a decent sized restaurant; I like to think it's not unlike walking into the Tardis. Making good vietnamese food is... More

This is a restaurant which is not easy to find. Serving Vietnamese food, Susu is a restaurant hidden in the hutongs and because of that is considered so special. Location of the restaurant and the ambiance is great. Is a small restaurant with a good setting overall. The food here is very very good. Great consistency across the different food... More

I hunt out Banh Mi everywhere I travel. It's a tough job in Beijing. It must not be popular with the locals. The Banh Mi here is very good, fresh bread and toppings. The bread is lightly toasted by default. If you don't want that then tell them when you order. The Rare Beef Pho was 4 out of 5.... More

I was looking for comfort Vietnamese food for myself, and decided to try this place out. It was kind of hard to find, but when I went inside, it was so cute! They don't serve all the food, but only during different times. The seating and atmosphere was peaceful and pleasant. The food was was light, and the coffee hit... More

Always a nice hiden place to go with friends on a sunny Sat. Food quality is same as before, but service side is a bit rough recently, not that attentative, lack of spirit of hospitality. Any way, maybe everywhere is the same nowadays.Also my friend ordered classic Mojito and it tasted really plain, very watering....

I joined some friends who live in Beijing for dinner here one night. Hard to find (I cut and pasted directions in Chinese from the website for my cab driver), but delightful in every way once I got here. Excellent food, delightful surroundings.

A great Vietnamese food. The place is hidden away so you will most likely need someone to show where it is. From the out side the area looks run down then you go through the iron door and an amazing beautiful restaurant is revealed to your eyes. Service is great speak English and good quality. Great atmosphere, I have to... More

Went there on a night when they were fully booked. Was asked to wait at the bar for 30 minutes. In 20 they had a table for us and it was sure worth the wait. Great vietnamese food and relaxed and friendly service (not a guarantee in Beijing) in a courtyard setting. I'd definitely go back there if I got... More

Our first visit to the restaurant was on Sunday lunch time. We didn't know that a reservation is needed (the restaurant is not big so they have limited tables) and they are fully-booked. However the waiter did their best to accommodate us perhaps since we came with our baby. Very good first impression. Menu is not extensive but they cover... More

First two times we were here for dinner, the food was excellent. This time, however, was a bit of a disappointment. I ordered the chicken in chili and lemongrass. What I received tasted bland and as if the local tap water was a) either the primary ingredient used in the sauce or b) the dish is was served in held... More
