There is nothing at this restaurant that you cannot get in literally thousands of other venues in Beijing - they just do it a bit better. The menu is a tome, there is a lot of selection but it is all made very clear with photographs and good English translations. The service is extremely attentive. We ordered one of their justly famous prawn dishes (fried prawns with lychee). I was not a big fan of the way they were fried with the shell still on. The shell clings so you must either learn to love eating fried shell or try to remove the sticky bits. Since we opted for the latter, our plates soon filled with up messily. The waitress came by often offering clean plates. This little touch was very endearing. Try the homestyle tofu - crispy on the outside, custardy on the inside in a succulent sauce. I did not care for the cold spinach in sesame sauce. Roast chicken was plain but made a nice foil for some of the spicy dishes we ordered. The local noodle dish was only 18 RMB per person and mixed for you tableside. Portions are quite large and prices are reasonable. Fresh papaya juice was refreshing. This restaurant is very conveniently located for a visit after a trip to the Silk Market. Take along the characters to show people or just look for the queue outside. Lovely restroom worth a mention as this is so often not the case elsewhere;
