This place has been recommended by our local tour guide. She ordered a surprise menue fir 8 people and everybody was excited about quality, taste and presentation of the various dishes. From fish to spicy chicken, tofu dish, local mushrooms, yummy vegetables simply everything was of outstanding taste. I highly recommend this nice treasure which is not easy to find. Because of the courtyard we calked it „ Grotto di Chinese“

Thanks for a great meal served with a smile. This was a great experience and the food tasted superb. We must have had 10 different courses, it seems like they just came with a new dish continuously.
There is no menu the chef prepares local dishes based upon what they can get of fresh products that day.
Will come back

Dali Courtyard was recommended by friends who had lived in Beijing as well as the Concierge at the Hotel as a restaurant to combine with a visit to the Hutongs in the area... This was well worth the effort.
There were other tourists and we all had a v.nice evening. Food was plenty and good even for families. Service was just fine and even helped us get a taxi later.

Our Beijing friends brought us to this upscale Hutong restaurant and quickly began a barrage of great appetizers and dishes. Among 6 of us we had a complementary assortment of 15 different dishes that were each prepared with fresh ingredients. The dishes were each on its own unique and beautifully presented. Some of our favorites included the eggplant, mushrooms, noodles and vegetables. Even for people that do not get excited about veggies, these were amazing. Most spectacular were the shrimp with shells that you could eat whole and ery tender and tasty. However the best dish was the fish. Not sure what they did to season it, but it was unique and melt-in-your-mouth tender. The courtyard being such a peaceful place, we decided to stay longer and order after dinner drinks. Not knowing what to expect I ordered a Chinese liquor in a fancy bottle. Quite tasty and a great closing to one of the best meals I have ever had. Beijing is certainly becoming a city of international level chefs and this is one great example in a unique setting. Definitely would return on a future visit and highly recommended.

Went here upon recommendation from a friend living in Beijing. We were blown away. They took down any allergies and brought multiple dishes for us to try. The mushrooms were the best I’ve ever had, and each dish (whole fish, spicy pork, marinated steak, etc) had a twist on it that made it an entirely unique experience. By far the best meal we had in Beijing, including one that cost ten times what this did. Highly recommended!
