The competition for being the best burger place in Beijing, I understand, is pretty fierce. I haven't checked out many of the places that do burgers but I have to say that so far, this is the best I have had in Beijing. I'm not overly fussed by the iPad ordering, although it worked smoothly, but the staff are friendly... More

Known locally as LAD, this is a great,but now very busy, diner. Ideal for breakfast / brunch. Jumbo breakfast is a real feast, costs 65 RMB, coffee at 20RMB. Good choice , reasonable service , allow 45minutes, this is not fast food but is good value and good food!

Lily's is a great breakfast spot. I have been living in Beijing for over 2years now and they never disappoint. My friends and I gather here at lest once a month for Saturday breakfast. It reminds you of Denny's in the US.

This is a great breakfast place if you have a hankering for good a ole' western style breakfast. Selecting what you want to eat on an iPad in English takes a lot of the guess work out of the ordering process even though the staff speaks pretty good English. They offer eggs, french toast, pancakes, waffles and interesting omelette combinations.... More

Not the first time being here, but always liked LAD's food offer. If you already had enough gongbao chicken, sichuan food or peking duck; this is the place to remember what an "occidental breakfast" means. Prices are affordable, flavor is OK and you are likely to find students or young Beijingers in this place, if you want to start new... More

Excellent American style restaurant with a wide range of western dishes. Breakfast served all day, as well as burgers, pastas, sandwiches, and colourful fresh salads. Meal is an excellent price - about £20 for dinner for two people, including a drink each. Perfect if you are a westerner in Beijing missing home.

On Sunday morning, my wife and I would like to have brunch outside. Lily's American Diner is listed on the top of my neighborhood restaurants. We decided to give it a try. To our surprise, the food is beyond our expectation. The food taste is really great, making us recall our years in the U.S. BTW, the location shown on... More

I am a regular home delivery customer of Lily's and I am always impressed by their knowledgeable and always friendly. I don't speak Chinese but never have any trouble ordering because they always have an English-speaking employee on hand that can take my order. The food always arrives very fast. They accept cash or card on delivery.
