The go to Indian restaurant among the few choices in the CBD.Some Indian restaurant goof up on the flavour of the curry,while here whenever I have had a curry like the tikka masala or black lentils ,its been great taste.I prefer a Butter soft nan with the curry and usually wash it down with draft beer. My preferred weekend dining place if it has to indian.
Lovely weather evening time or post lunch ,there are shaded trees and you can park yourself as you please. The kids can have fun at the rides, while the oldies can sip beer or sunbath,or enjoy the weather.The place is huge.
We were having lunch at Biteapitta when I decided to open and try the hummus I was going to take out. The boss of this establishment was sitting at the next table, when he saw me doing this, he went to find a waitress and sent her to make me comment that it’s forbidden to try food that is packed to be eaten “out”, even if I’m having lunch inside. I didn’t understand her reasoning and asked to sent her boss to explain me this policy, he rejected to approach and when I stood up to approach him, he instantly ran away and hid in the staff room. WTF??? I’ve never seen manager behave like this in MY WHOLE LIFE! That’s not the way you run the restaurant. So, number ONE: never-ever you dare to open your take-out food inside this place, and SECOND, I don’t know the nationality of this person, but he’s made a very strong impression on me, TOTAL DISGRACE, man. Every time I see Biteapitta name now, I can’t get rid of the picture of 200 pounds grown up man hiding from me in the backdoor closet.
POP-UP BEIJING is the best thing to happen for your home in Beijing (or elsewhere!) in years! This lifestyle boutique is filled with the creative, elegant, refined, quirky, stylish pieces that were once impossible to find in Beijing. From antique furniture and vintage fabrics to modern artwork and fanciful cushions, the collection here lets you break away from living in apartment that was once all-IKEA-all-the-time.
If you need help refining your ideas for the look you are going for, or simply want to know more about something you see in the shop, just ask Glenn and Vito for help. The 2 designers are super-friendly and ready to answer your questions and give ideas and suggestions if you ask. They seem to have scoured China (and India, and Belgium) to bring all the best pieces for you to choose from. (I am LOVING the ceramics from JIngdezhen!)
This is not the same-old same-old "China-style" furniture that you can buy from any storefront in Gaobeidian. From the more rough-hewn stools to the delicate chandeliers, you can find style and variety in every corner of the shop. Stop by on your way to dinner in 1949, or after a margarita at Taco Bar and have a browse. Not only will you be glad you did - you'll be back again and again!
