To eat in a Qing dynasty palace served by staff dressed in Imperial dress and to witness a traditional show whilst dining was a wonderful sensory experience on our first night in Beijing. Arriving on a cool early march evening, walking in with lanterns glowing and to be taken back a few hundred years was a tremendous eye-opener to historical... More

Food excellent, but we came in Feb and it was a little cold (put warm clothes on) the garden of prince Li is beautiful and the staff are dressed in traditional clothes of Qing Dynasty. With the utensils being typical of a royal household. We will come back in the summer

I arranged this meal after a visit to the forbidden city. My children enjoyed the experience as there was a performance that came with the meal. The meal was relatively more expensive than your regular Beijing restaurant, so be prepared. But what is sure is that the locals find this THE place for special occasions such as birthdays. So I...

Not sure if this place should be on the restaurant list or on the things to do list. Its the former home of a nobleman, complete with elaborate courtyard and pond, turned into a restaurant serving traditional court dishes in private dinning rooms spread around the complex. The staff wears costumes from the last dynasty. The food was good but... More

The place is very unique. The whole surrounding is a flashback into the past living and dining of a royal family. The whole team is dressed as such, the decoration is such, the attitude is such. It is really beautiful to walk around and inhale atmosphere. The food was great. Nicely served. One of the best meals we had in... More

This is one unforgettable experience, and not to be missed, especially if you are visiting China for the first time. I absolutely loved the atmosphere, the period costumes of the servers and felt as if I had traveled back in time as a guest of a very opulent palace, indeed. Photo ops abound everywhere! Food tasty, too...
