Hip place with over-the-top, extravagant decor. The food is not great, but quite good. So, worth going at least once for amusement!

Talk about style over substance and aggressive business model. Ok, the décor is spectacular/flashy: Old Europe, eclectic, with a maze of rooms of differing functions. Zarastro in London did that 20 years ago.
The food was terrible and expensive; and please pay the waiter in advance, cash only! Then there is the classic trick of staff clearing unfinished drinks off the tables: I went to toilet and my half-finished beer was gone when I returned. Of course some of the staff's English is bad enough to claim incomprehension when one complains.

Last thing I expected in Beijing is a Stark influenced bonanza of Western, Asian and yes a little African art mixed into a multi million dollar investment for your dining pleasure. Really enjoyed the quality of food in this restaurant/bar/kick back and have fun and go with it type of place. Surprisingly with all the hype came excellent food and dishes that we have never had before of excellent quality. Prices are high but something to experience nonetheless if you are willing to let go and enjoy yourself and have a terrific night out in Beijing then this is the place. The only thing that comes to mind to compare this place well actually nothing. It is unique and if you want to see the BCBG crowd in Beijing then go there.

Love the design and decor, very cool place to visit. The food was quite good, and we found the Peking Duck to be excellent, however the staff were a little over-the-top and almost annoyingly attentive.

We found it to be overpriced for what it was.

Food was simply horrible. I didn't think it possible to cut lamb chops with so much fat on them. Their other dishes were horribly spiced and we are big fans of the local cuisine, so this wasn't a 'eww, different', but an 'eww, what were they thinking with this' reaction.

Decor was like a 12 year old girl mind had been taken over by Tim Burton or David Lynch. Despite how well that could turn out, it was just horrible.
