“Far from one of the best Thai restaurants in Beijing - disappointing!”
Reviewed April 2, 2012

We went to Serve the People with high hope, as it had just been voted top 3 Thai restaurants in Beijing by the Magazine "The Beijinger".

I must say it was a very disappointing experience all the way through. Cold room (yes it was a cold day, heating in China is already down, windows were "sealed" with tape, one gas heater somewhere in the entrance area.

The food: I had a squid salad - like chewing gum, and a beef curry - ok taste, but I can do better at home. My wife had spring rolls - old grease I think, beef salad - was ok, but meet not tender. My son had chicken satay - they were not grilled but fried, same old fat.

If food would have been good, prices would have been acceptable, but it was far too expensive for the quality.

“Not as good as people say”
Reviewed December 28, 2011

They say the thai food there is really local and well made. I went there once, but i dont think their food worth their prices. Just so so thai food. Nothing really special.

“one word "authentic"”
Reviewed November 9, 2011

Beijing's oldest and popular thai restaurant serving very tasty and freshly prepared Thai food - some of the best I have had and very good value for money. A mistake with the dishes by the waiter (he memorised our order) dropped the marks a bit. Well worth a visit - you won't be disappointed.

“Godd Thai Food”
Reviewed June 7, 2010

Nice simple Thai restaurant in the trendy neighborhood of Sanlutin. You can eat indoors or outside. The place is popular with westerners as it is in the embassy area. The prices are very reasonable. Reservations not necesaary.

“best Thai food in Beijing”
Reviewed April 25, 2010

Actually, this is the best thai food in Beijing I ever had. The ingredients are very good, real Thai, and they are not substituted by any replacement. For example, the Thai flavor is by lime not vinegar. I tried several other good Thai restaurants, but I believe this is the only one close to real Thai food. The service is not really a good one. Especially, the waitress caring a big rice pot to serve rice to the dinners is like giving food to beggers--not her attitude but the way it is. However, many dinners do not know the restaurant has a second site at city skirt--Northeast Fifth Ring close to Capital Airport. It is in a art cent called Shangerila Art Zoon with a big lawn in front and a small lake on other side. There are also some art studioes and a big art gallery--Nova Art Space. The food is the same good; only the drink is half price as much as its main store in Sanlitun. The deck on the water is a plus especially in spring, summer, and fall. In the winter the guest room with a big European stule fireplace will make you feel like home if you do miss the winter back in home.
