Food and drink
If you are vegetarian, you might well be put off by the idea of eating mock meat. Fear not, the tofu-centric menu has enough fresh, zingy dishes and beautifully presented Chinese classics to keep you distracted. Conversely, meat-lovers really will be wowed by just how spare rib-y the tofu spare ribs are.
Serene décor, low lights and soothing music imparts a spa-like atmosphere. Servers sprinkle rose water on your hands on entering.
Good levels of English from the efficient, welcoming servers.
Close to Tuanjiehu subway stop (Line 10), or a 10-15 minute walk east from Sanlitun Village.
Steer clear from the massively overpriced tea if you want to keep costs respectable. Expect to pay upwards of 150 RMB per person.
There’s a newer branch inside the Lido Holiday Inn, on the way to the airport.
