I was staying in a hotel nearby, and saw the reviews for this place so I felt I needed to check it out. I ordered the lamb in sweet sauce, with a bowl of rice and some iced tea to go with it. In total,...More

It was very good, staff understood English.. Food was good as well. If you like, you can also have a beer. Location and surroundings are good for a stroll too.

This is a halal restaurant with a long history. Mutton dishes are their speciality, but don't let the name discourage you it's not gamey due to the breed used. We enjoyed every dish. Lots of locals eat here as well. The location of the restaurant...More

I had lunch here. The restaurant is located near the Yindang bridge. I had a couple of mutton skewers, the vegan mushroom mix and the sour cucumber. The mutton was very chewy with a lot of fat. The two vegetarian dishes were quite bland. Service...More

Great place to grab a bite while site-seeing the old hutongs of the Houhai area. Despite the area's transformation from traditional hangout in old Beijing to trendy western music bar district, at least a few old institutions have survived, including this halal eatery. Kublai Khan...More
