Reviewed today NEW

A wonderful, courtyard restaurant serving Yunnan cuisine. There is no menu … you get seven courses of what the chef chooses (they ask about food allergies ... in good English). Beautifully, freshly cooked food. Four out of seven dishes were vegetables. Don’t expect coffee or dessert. Fixed price 150 Yuan per person (about $35 Australian dollars). Probably expensive by Beijing... More

There is no menu for ordering food as they have fixed dishes for 150RMB pr. person. We enjoyed it and tried some really good food we hadn't had ordered ourselves. The food was good and the waiters quite flexible. As we were three they just moved a two person-table and added a chair. It seemed, however as if we were... More

The food is nice, and the fact that there is no menu to choose from makes it very easy to decide what to eat. The waiters asks for allergies, so you will not eat something that you could make you ill. There is a reasonable choice of wines and other drinks. The taste of the food is great - fresh... More

This was one of my favorite meals in Beijing. I ate here after a long day exploring the city. Food was excellent and it's in a very peaceful courtyard setting. Great place to go wind down after exploring the hutong.

As we don't get many evenings to spend together as couple, on times when we get one, we try to visit some nice places and restaurants. Last week we have decided to visit Dali Courtyard. I liked the place, even though it is a little difficult to find. We went there from Beixinqiao by Mobike. The atmosphere inside was nice... More

I took some friends here on their first day in China and we were all blown away but the quality, taste and variety of the dishes. The fish especially was some of the best I've ever had in 5 years living in China. Very fresh and flavourful. The waitress also came and deboned it for us. There was no menu,... More

Make a reservation and go. The atmosphere is charming. The wine is fantastic. They surprise you with a series of courses (no menu).

Excellent cosy atmosphere in a hidden place. Friendly and attentive service. Love the idea that the menu is set and unknown to the guests. Exquisite dishes, rich in flavours and textures. Very healthy meal with lots of vegetables and a variety of meats. Excellent.

A must visit when in Beijing. Its a small courtyard restaurant hidden away in the hutongs. Its a SET MENU 6 course meal if i remember correctly. We weren't aware of that when we got there. Luckily the 6 courses were just out of this world and the atmosphere was great.
