This place is a must visit. The food was absolutely delicious and you could tell it was fresh. The flavors are unusual but intriguingly so. Every new taste was a delight and the meal was very filling overall.

I've had a lot of really great food during the past month in Beijing, most of it has been mindboggling cheap. This place though has an environment and a quality that's a step above the rest - that's what made it a highlight for me.

And for only 128 per person, it was totally worth it.

Go! You won't regret it.

I live in Beijing so finding Dali wasn't too much of an issue off Guloadongdajie and close to my favorite whiskey Bar Amilal.
It was a week day so quiet and too cold to sit in the courtyard . Great place for intimidate dining , good conversation and the food lived up to its expectations. the service was friendly albeit sporadic appearance of service staff. We enjoyed the ribbon tofu, jihzong mushrooms, excellent prawns with deep fried lime leaf, the fish was excellent I assume Tilapia covered in thick spice a chicken dish which was average . The only drawback would be the fact that you have to keep asking what the dishes were . I did enjoy though not ordering and just been brought what is fresh and avaialble.
Definitely worth the price , great location and good food.

Okay, it needs a proper map on your Iphone, and internet connection ( thanks to china unicom) so you will find this little gem. And a gem it is. Go there, don't miss it.
Amazing food ( fixed menu for 120 RMB)

A great choice for one of the 14 nights in China. My girlfriend's daughter who is studying in Beijing took us here for a taste of China, we had read through the reviews on TA, we were not disappointed. Check it out for a great Chinese( yunnanese) meal. Fresh &quality ingredients!
