Since I've been in Beijing I always wondered where to go to take care of my hair; always having the fear to get a bad hair cut and a terrible color. I indeed had a terrible experience in a Chinese hair salon and luckily found Laurent who saved my hair! Since then this is the only place I go to! I love the atmosphere and the staff and never have a doubt of the quality of the products. Both my boyfriend and I recommend it to anyone!
I was in Beijing for 2 months and did I miss Indian food ?? Absolutely not. I was staying a stone's throw away from Ganges Lido. Me being a vegetarian I was apprehensive on what I wil eat in Beijing. Ganges allayed all my worries. The menu was very elaborate covering North Indian and South Indian dishes. Top top it up they even have a yoga menu which is really suited for people who prefer a light and a satwik diet. I have never come across a restaurant serving healthy food for the yoga enthusiasts. I would definitely give a thumbs up to this restaurant. In the yoga menu, do try the Daal Khichdi.It is really amazing. The restaurant provides amazing food without denting our wallets. So definitely recommended.!!!!!
Great for your pub quiz fix on Wednesday if you don't fancy heading into wudaoko! Also awesome that you can order Indian food from Ganges upstairs. Most Oirish of all, the waitresses wear tshirts that read Feck. Also available at the bar for 100rmb. Father Ted and friends would be proud.
It is our regular fried chicken place. We love the fried chicken and the bean paste noodle here. Gives you the feeling that you are some where in Korea - with the yummy chicken and the Korean speaking staff. Prices are also very reasonable.
Seem this branch is kind a 'fine dining' concept as compared to other branches. We were brought for dinner there; I was very impressed by the decor and ambience. Service was poor. After an hour, we were told half of what we ordered were not available any more. The staff argued half the night, and was very defensive about it. No words of apologies at least. The very famous and talked about duck was dry. I think with what we have paid and the service; it would have been a better enjoyed meal else where. Very disappointed that such 'old time' brand of Beijing with such quality of food and service.
In my personal opinion this is the BEST Italian restaurant in town.
I went with a group of 15 people and even with that many people the service was truly amazing. Every time a wine bottle went empty a waitress was ready with another one.
The food came out right away, and once I dived in I died and went to heaven. In the times i've been here I haven't been able to get any other main course besides the rabbit ragu. It's just so darn good, but there are plenty of other great dishes. Be sure to get a few dishes (cheese platter, anti pasta, salmon, and so much more) and a dessert. The tiramisu is amazing. I really can't say a bad thing about the cuisine here.
The only thing that might detour myself away from coming here more often is the prices. The prices are high but reasonable especially for the expertise and flavor that is put into each of the dishes.
Don't forget to finish off the night with a small glass of grappa.
Cheers to you Mercante. I will definitely be coming back again and again.
