This place has been here for years and I eventually decided to pop in with a friend from out of town. A bad idea indeed.More rice than meat, more soup than veg, moe salt than anything else.Off hand service which was bizarre because there were 4 people in the place that day excluding waiters.They just didn't care!How they survive is...

Probably one of the very best quality Chinese meals my wife and I have eaten in South Africa. There was an excellent selection of dishes typical of all the main food-regions of China. The portions were most generous and were most tastefully presented and tasted fabulous. The service was of the highest order. The cost of the dishes provided excellent... More

On 10th October I took friends there as a treat for accommodating me during my stay in Benoni. The waitress had no clue. Two of us ordered food which arrived on sizzling iron platters. Sauce was spattering everywhere and spilled all over the tablecloth and almost onto our laps. The waitress brought 2 serviettes to cover the mess. The mushroom... More

We went to this restaurant a few times during the years and found it ok. We were in the vicinity and decided to eat there again. It was totally disgusting. The waiters don't have a clue on what the food is or he drinks. The food was poor quality all mushy and full of msg and cornflower. Nothing that is... More

Not many Chinese Restaurants in Benoni, food is not very good, the sauce on the meats tastes like instant soup. Not very nice, the Zim waiters lack of understanding English is a bit of a problem. You have to give them a tip in secret, because the owners take there tips. Overall the food very average and not at all... More

We've been going to Beijing for a couple of years now. The food is authentic, always tasty, portions good. Very good value for money. The service is great and makes for a pleasant dining experience. Haven't ever had any complaints here. Try the steamed pork dumplings and wonton soup! Definately recommended for delicious chinese cuisine!

Had a Sunday lunch at Beijing, after not having been there for many years. My Mother in law, loves it and this is her favorite outing and lunch place in Benoni. Very friendly staff and quite a few people even though it was after 2.30 on a Sunday. I took my own wine and they did not even consider corkage... More
