“Nice burgers at the village”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2014

If you are looking for a good burger place you should not miss Blue Frog. The atmosphere at Union Grille (50m away) is a bit better, but Blue Frog is and was famous for the burger.

“good place for burgers”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2013

They have a pretty extensive selection of different gourmet-style burgers, if that's what you are craving in Beijing. Nothing really spectacular, but the burgers are pretty sizeable and good. Usually pretty crowded with a mix of foreigners and locals as you would expect in sanlitun, since this is one of the few places you can be assured to get a table without reservation.

“Distinctly average by Western Standards”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2013 via mobile

There's a good range of American style food, but the service is distinctly Chinese (ie off-hand and ungracious). They bring out your mains while you're still on your starters and haven't a clue how to serve wine, or indeed, smile.

Portions are big and the quality is good (the veggie burger was average though). It's quite pricey even by Western standards, particularly for wine; i.e. this makes it v pricey for Beijing.

The décor/ ambiance is good enough, but nothing outstanding.

SUMMARY: if you absolutely have to have Western food it's really okay, but it would go bust in any other country, because it's hefty pricing just isn't warranted.
