You have to venture down a long and slightly dodgy alley (hutong) to find this place but it is so worth it. Susu is a warm and lovely little Vietnamese restaurant with incredible pho, which we enjoyed with spring rolls and chili lemongrass chicken for lunch. They have a nice wine list as well and a pretty courtyard in the... More

Surely this is one of the places you will hardly find on your own. So best have somebody giving you precise directions. Once you crossed the wooden Chinese door (sorry, no signage whatsoever!), you enter a pretty smart and relaxed atmosphere. The food is mostly southern Vietnamese fare. Do try the nice fish dishes, they are wonderfully done. Very tasty!!... More

We were staying at a hotel on Wangfujing and wanted a different dining experience nearby. It was very close, but very hard to find. Luckily we met a couple heading there for dinner who showed us the way. It is located at the end of an alley on the south side of Quianlian Hutong street about 100m from Dafosi E... More

Every time we visit Beijing we return to SuSu and we always have a delicious meal. The staff are friendly and the manager Sonny is great and speaks English. Great cocktails too!!

For those who love nice decoration and mixes of modern and traditional oriental cuisine, Susu is a place to stop by. Service is very good and dishes are very well made. The place is not easy to find, but it makes it nicer after a walk around the Meishuguandong neighboring alleys.

I read about this restaurant in a review 4 years ago, kept the review - and found it back when i planned my trip to Beijing and China. They are so easy to communicate with, easy to make an reservation and also to change that (was necessary for us). And it was worth the effort to find this charm, excellent... More

While the menu can be lacking (as are all fine dining places), there should always be something for everyone. With Vietnamese dishes like Spring Rolls and other homemade rolls (personally love the Banana rolls for appetizers), and French dishes like beef stew, it covers all sorts of tastes. Service is great and every meal there is always wonderful. Try the... More

Very charming restaurant hidden in the hutongs. Food is very good but prices are on the high side. However, definitely worth a visit when in Beijing. Firstly, you will get fabulous Vienamese fusion food, secondly, you will get to be amazed by the hutongs and the typical local life that goes on there. Thirdly, the inner courtyard style eatery has... More

This place is located in a hutong. It has a terrace and a courtyard so if the weather is nice you can dine there. The Vietnamese dishes are average
