This is located in a hotel cum hostel close to Tianemen Square. The food is typical Chinese but well cooked and presented. It's a bit tricky to find as you have to walk through the hotel lobby, past reception and down a corridor. You don't have to be a guest in the hotel to dine there.

From the minute you enter the building you know you are in for something special. Entirely vegetarian the food is extraordinary. We have been vegetarians for over 30 years and this was the best food we have eaten. We went for one of the tasting menus and can recommend.

King's Joy is a pleasure in every way: it is located across the street from the Lama Temple, borders a hutong, and with pleasing architectural décor quietly accentuating its cuisine. The vegetarian/vegan menu is itself a study in the expanse of plant base food sourcing and preparation techniques, and I sincerely meant that in the best, and not in an... More

The restaurant is very customer friendly Excellent food but at a price if you know it is expensive average 1000 rnb for a couple and bottle of wine then you will not be disappointed. Really good atmosphere and the staff concentrate on providing excellent customer service. Would recommend it.

Excellent, comfortable design. Romantic atmosphere. Wonderful service. No wonder the restaurant has so many awards. Even Michelin star. The chef just a magician. All dishes are very tasty. Some dishes, if I did not know in advance, never would have thought that they were vegetarian. Excellent wine list. Obligatory place for all gourmets!

This vegetarian restaurant is pricy, nevertheless the food is great and what is greater is the atmosphere and the decor. Harp playing indoors, dining options in the courtyard or the misty bamboo garden. It is a nice experience.

Came for our anniversary--see the rose petals in a heart shape--and loved everything. Mushroom soup brewed for 12 hours, foie gras (not that interesting), a mushroom steak that was so good I forgot to take a picture! All I all, a delicious meal, beautifully plated and served.
