One of the cravings I have when in China is finding authentic dim sum, which is said to be a southern experience but this place brings it north to Beijing and the locals and the tourists love it. Three floors, apparently open 24/7, this was nonetheless very popular and we had a waiting time of 20 minutes Sunday morning in a "departure lounge' waiting for our number to be called. Free green tea and other snacks helped pass the time. When your number was called (in Mandarin) people called back like they had won a prize, which indeed they had! Great food, great service, great ambiance.

This is a wonderful restaurant in Dongcheng District, Beijing, China. A visit to this restaurant presents you with a great selection of food from the northern and southern regions of china to choose from. The restaurant opens 24hours everyday and the food they serve is really delicious. The restaurant has nicely decorated private rooms on the third floor where large parties of guest are served. If you are new to china then you will love the dim sum and any other item on the menu. The staffs are friendly and very willing to help. I recommend this restaurant, the food is excellent and the service great.

We were a big party, who got seated in one of the private rooms on the third floor. Each room is decorated well.

The dim sum was good quality, so were the other dishes in the menu. Worth going back to. The waitresses are a bit stingy with leaving the menu behind for you to peruse.

It's good to have such a great selection of food to choose from that covers northern regions, southern regions. Long waiting esp. at meal time, but snacks helps you kill your time.

Not really a recommended restaurant if you come to Beijing for the first time.

It has nice food sure but nothing really special. This is usually the place where people after meeting with friends or coworkers come here late at night for a bite to eat. It's right next to tango a Karoke bar which is always packed during the night.

This place is open 24 hours so if you find yourself hungry this is a good place to go.

Summary-
Open 24 hours
A mix of Cantonese style food but not quite there yet.
Food could be a little sweet for some peoples taste.
Squatter bathrooms.
More of a place where after you've had a few dranks and sang your lungs out you want to get a late night bite.
