After spending a morning in the hutongs and a failed attempt to find a recommended restaurant we reluctantly went into the Fairmont (we didn't want to finish up eating in a 5 star, preferred local flavour). But, so serene and such great food, We missed the buffet but were very happy with a la carte. The tofu and vegetables were... More

Had the Peking Duck sent up to us at the Gold Lounge whilst staying at the Fairmont Beijing and found it to be nicer than the other famous duck place!!

The Peking Duck meal was outstanding...from the preparation to the quality of meat. Allow at least a hour for the preparation...so book ahead to manage the wait time.

Dinner was mostly western or Cantonese style. Ok but nothing outstanding. Good variety but mostly just not my personal preference. Service friendly. I did like the hot and spicy soup- wish they had more "spicy" options

Had a lunch and a dinner there while staying at the Fairmont. Very good service, and the Peking Duck was was delicious and serviced with a flair. It is a little pricy, but if you're staying at the Fairmont it's right there in the basement so it's very convenient.

We had planned to eat out at one of the better known duck specialty restaurants in Beijing, but after a long day at the great wall and the fact that we had an early flight the next day, we decided to try the duck at Lunar 8 which is one of the main restaurants at the hotel (Fairmont). This was... More

Ate breakfast here and didn't check the price first. Big mistake! Breakfast buffet was good, but it cost 40 USD per person. That's insane--it certainly was not $40 worth of good.
