Six of us ate there for dinner, the second time for me. Reserve the Peking Duck in advance. After serving it, they will give you options for the remainder of the duck. Pick the one that is not soup. The dry fried green beans are...More

The place can be very full and stressful to get your table. 95% of the clients are Chinese and the place is out of the touristic areas. It closes at 9:30 but if you go at 8:30PM it is already very calm and you still...More

Just about everything has flaming chili oil as the curry base. However, it is delicious, and not as frighteningly pungent as you might think. We loved the lamb in flaming chili oil sauce. The pot stickers were a disappointment. They are not your traditional Chinese...More

Really authentic experience. Absolutely packed at 7pm on a Monday 90% Chinese tells the story. We had to try the Peking Duck which didn't disappoint. They even make up the pancakes at the table for you.

This is a good restaurant but its not anywhere near to being great, as some have written. This restaurant specializes in Peking Duck and has an interesting combination of classic and traditional dim sum, and new dim sum with a twist. But Chef Han adds...More

Our Beijing feast here deserved a Michelin star. The presentation, flavors, variety was outstanding. And an excellent value. This chef, apparently, is quite famous and the quality of food and service is stunning. And we've eaten in dozens if not hundreds of Asian eateries. I...More

Wow. Forget traditional Chinatown and head to Chili House. Hands down the best Chinese I have eaten (and that's a lot of places). Amazing flavors, plenty of choices, great service. Started with Spicy Dumplings and things just got better- those dumplings set the bar high!...More

Pretty casual environment and nothing too flashy when you walk in. However the food is extraordinary. We had the fish with flaming chili oil and it was so good. We also had some pot stickers and steamed pork buns which were very nice as well.
