The quality of their dishes is consistently good. Atmosphere is quiet and decor is lovely. Service is also attentive. A great place to bring friends or visitors! Price is on the high side.

No one answers the phone and the recording says it is no longer in service. I have been here many times in the past and it was always very good. Such a pity. It’s Sister restaurant in sanlitun is under renovation.

Very good food and atmosphere. Highly recommended for Chinese food and especially Peking Duck. Need to make reservations early during holidays and weekends.
