“Acceptable food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

The service for the food is very slow, not ideal if you are rushing for time. the portion of the food is huge as per the restaurant name, but the quality is acceptable not exceptional. The smoky environment caused by the smoking of other patrons is quite off puttinng

“Very good and cheap”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2012 via mobile

Very good restaurant. Food is good and clean, also cheap : 100 rmb for 3. Highly recommend this one.
For find it, it is behind night market, and door is pretty discret.

“Excellent food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2012 via mobile

Tried here as it was near our hotel .a little hard to find - it is behind the night food market on the north side of the road. Opposite the children's theatre. I have uploaded a picture with the distinctive curved roof and black&yellow waiters uniforms. About 30rmb per dish. Great taste, classy semi English picture menu with professional photos ( this isn't just a tourist menu and they do take away. Would eat here again.

“Peking Duck for the first-timer”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2012

Our guess is they're not serving the best Peking duck in the world. For the price, however, it's a good sampler. The litmus test is when you see locals eating at a restaurant. I suppose that means the cost and the taste pass their standards. We particularly liked the Mixed Vegetables Beijing Style.

Be careful when ordering though. Portions are huge. We made the mistake of ordering way too much for two people as we wanted to try this and that.

If I correctly assume most food served in Beijing are Mandarin cuisine, then I might just remain a sucker for Cantonese and Szechuan cuisines.

“Good food, good value, local atmosphere.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2012

We ate dinner here one evening and really enjoyed it, I got several recommendations for it saying that they had good food and that the place was clean, which is important. The place had a local feel to it but welcomed foreigners and though not great, the spoke some english. I would definitely go back.
