These dumplings are just fantastic - they come with different fillings and the variety is really impressive. We also tried different dishes and were not disappointed. I've been in Beijing few times and never left it without eating Mr. Shi's dumplings.

As a vegetarian, it's so difficult to find dumplings in china! I loved this place! I strongly recommend trying the curry ones! So yummy!

Not the cosiest entourage but one of the best dumplings we ate in China! There is a lot (maybe to many) of choice in dumplings, and once put on the plate almost impossible to distinguish from the outside. Make sure to ask for separate plates...More

Stopped here for a somewhat late lunch (around 2:00-2:30 p.m.) while wandering about Houhai hutongs and still had to wait a minute or two for a free table. This spot is obviously very popular among tourists who seek guidance on TripAdvisor--but less so among locals...More
