The hotel is forgettable (see my review) but once perched at a corner table at this fun, noisy, family-filled venue, all is forgiven.
Comfy seating, a stunning tea menu (ask for it), alone a reason for visiting here (but you must really be into tea!), lovely Beijing duck and a daily list of specials including the delicate stir fried crab with milk (pictured), which could have done with a stronger crab flavour but which was a lesson in deft execution.
Stick to the classics and you won't be disappointed.
Watching the young man in traditional dress dispense hot water from a ultra long spout, high above you, into your teacup will leave you gasping (and it will temporarily silence the kids!). Great fun.
