Used to be one of my 'must dine' places every time I am in Beijing. Over the years, I have accepted the less than stellar service because of its food. No more. This time around, the food quality has also deteriorated. Limp bread, not quite ripe tomatoes, and watery tzatziki. The manager was disinterested in the feed back too. What... More

My friend and I were drinking and walked 3KM to go to Veggie Table. It was near Argo. When we got there it was closed, well they refused to open the kitchen. So I told my friend let's go to Argo and we were sooo lucky that they continued to serve even though it was 10:30pm on a Sunday night.... More

In Beijing it's common to have substandard service. If I'm in a 10kuai noodle shop it's not a big deal. I'm used to the indifference. However, this restaurant charges Western prices. The level of service is not commensurate with price. To make a long story short we walked out 2 hours after ordering. We were told there was no manager... More

Being in China for 2 months, we really enjoyed some different food, and were quite happy to find a Greek restaurant in a hutong that has been "yuppified".

A really beautiful decorated Greek restaurant in a traditional small Chinese courtyardhouse. Visit inside the restaurant, even you have never been to Greece, you will feel you are in Hellas. The owner is pure Greek, food and beverage are all authentic Greek!! Either you are local Chinese or traveler from anywhere of the world, this restaurant is absolutely an ideal... More

Went there at 8pm, tired and hungover from day before. Menu is just about the right size with enough variety. Service was pleasant enough. Decor etc is unoffensive. Food was authentically Greek and tasted just right. Portions were a bit too larger but this is not a complaint. Prices are reasonable. Overall it's a solid 4 star and I will... More

I am an expat and this place is a taste of home for Greek food. The service is slow but the food quality and price is good. Its very reasonable and good ambiance especially in the summer on the patio. This was my second time in three months when I went this week and sat inside. The selection is pretty... More

We came here for a mini celebration on a Saturday afternoon. There is an extensive wine list with fancy wine descriptions but in reality they just had a few choices behind the bar. We were in the mood so we took the best bottle on offer - a Chilean reserve Cabernet. That's a US $50 bottle of wine. What came... More

We really loved walking down this small street. All the shops are little boutiques with traditional Chinese architecture. Going into Argo, it is like walking into an old Chinese restaurant, but the food is large list of Greek food. If the weather is nice, head upstairs to enjoy the roof top bar. The staff was very friendly and fun.
