Noisy, untidy, very cheap and a lot of fun. Better for lunch than dinner, they don't have dim sum trolleys — you order by the big photo plastic menu and they bring the dishes to you straight from the kitchen. We ate on the first floor, but may try the second or third floor next time. (The view is better from up there and it may be smarter.) The food is really very good and the bill will be modest unless you order some expensive tea by mistake.

This is a fantastic restaurant. It is very close in proximity to the Lama Temple, so it made for the perfect lunch after enjoying the temple. Our private guide from Bestour took us here, and it was the best meal we had in Beijing. It is huge, 3 floors, with lots of dining options. The dumplings were delicious as well as lots of vegetable options. Our only disappointment is they wouldn't let us shoot a photo of their kitchen which is on view....and really hopping! Definitely eat here if you get a chance.

Easy to find, open 24 hours a day, if you come for dinner preper yourself to wait for 20-30 minutes. The restaurant have 3 floors and at dinner they are all full. they have menus in English so no problem ordering. The best Dim-Sum I had in Beijing, and the other dishes are delicious. The staff is a liitle indifferent but I guess its because the restaurant is always full... To sum up - A must visit restaurant!!!

Excellent Dim Sum and other dishes. Inexpensive. Easy menu for vegetarians. Address is correct but location on Tripadvisor map is shown 6km away. Correct location is at south exit of Ditan Park.

Our tour guide took us here for lunch before visiting the lama temple. The dim sum was delicious,with pages after pages to try. The Vegitable buns and spicy schezuan dumplings were so good that we went back the following day to try more off the menu. During weekday lunch times many of the dim sum is half price so it is very affordable. Three of us ate for 88 yuan including drinks. The restaurant is also open 24 hours a day!
