“This is Lewes, Jake”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

OK, so we're not in Chinatown, still less at the top of the Shard, but if you choose carefully you'll have decent Chinese food at a price that won't make your eyes water. Crispy duck is always good, as are the squid and the scallops, and a vegan friend swears by their fried tofu and vegetables. There's even a Louis Latour Chablis on the wine list at a reasonable (for a restaurant) 25 quid.
The manager is smart, funny and incredibly friendly: no Gerrard Street surliness here.
The last time we were at the Beijing, the place was almost empty, but there was a constant stream of take-out customers; the locals obviously rate the product.

“Decent value”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

The food was a bit hit and miss with some dishes being excellent and others being fairly average. However the service was excellent and it was good value - especially the set menus and the 'eat as much as you like' menu.

Overall it was a good evening out and a nice experience - but I've certainly had better tasting Chinese food elsewhere.

“The best Chinese food in Lewes, lots of veggie options”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

Overall, this is a middle-of-the-road Chinese restaurant, 'cheep and cheerful' if you will. It is not overly authentic, but still manages to be rather tasty. I did find a few of the dishes to be a bit greasy, but still palatable. The service is very friendly and it doesn't seem to get overly busy here. BIG kudos to this restaurant for offering meat substitute options (Chick-veg) on their menu. In a town with a disproportionate number of chain Italian restaurants and pubs it is welcome to have some alternatives, even if they don't compare with authentic and high-end Chinese cuisine. Definitely worth a try for an informal night out.
