Just had a working lunch here. Chicken sandwich and a coffee came to RMB78. Food was ok, although looking at what arrived on my plate, it's possibly a little pricey. Popular with expats and packed at lunch time. Service was ok. My coffee arrived a while after I had received my sandwich. Nothing spectacular but solid for a quick convenient bite.
The best hand crafted beer in China. The Flying Fist IPA is one of the best micro brews I have had anywhere in the world. Great Ownership and strong management shows. A great place to go, relax, feel welcome and feel at home. Did I mention the great food. Small menu allows them to focus on what they do best.
I have just relocated to Beijing with my whole family and after living in many different countries across the world I can definitely say that this supermarket has nothing to envy to a 'western standards' supermarket. Fresh food, great variety of cheeses and wines. Great option of organic vegetables and fruits, specially having 2 young kids at home.
I am leaving another review as after emailing in a complaint over the below experience, we were apologised to and invited back by the manager. This time round, the service and food were excellent, and the staff went out of their way to make us comfortable and make amends for the previous meal - especially as we had been there celebrating a birthday.
There was very little to fault in our follow up experience, so it's only fair that the stars I've given here reflect this particular visit. Of course, for 2000RMB everything should have been perfect the first time round too, but we appreciated the efforts to make it right and hopefully anyone else who dines there will receive the same treatment.
without sounding douchey, i've eating a lot of high end steaks in a lot of places in beijing and around the world and these guys served me one of the best, juiciest steaks i have ever had. perfectly cooked medium rare melted under my knife and in my mouth. price is definitely pretty steep but absolutely worth it when you want to splurge. i usually dont give ratings but cant believe the current ratings are so low.
I had been at Allday's a few months ago and found it a pleasant place to while away a few hours and have some decent Chinese-style Western food. I went back last week and had the same impression. Nobody would be reminded of Italy when eating their noodles, but prices are honest, service is very polite, and they have a lot of promotions: 50% off beer during happy hour, free ice cream in the evenings, free waffles on the month of one's birthday. The restaurant is rather quiet, although business seems to have picked up a bit. Overall, a pleasant experience to escape the crowds over in Sanlitun.
We were running out of time and Laundry Town saved the day. We had a train to catch in the late afternoon and 10kg of laundry to deal with. We got same day service and extremely professional service every second of the way. Our clothes were picked up at our subway stop and dropped off at the train station for us. Saul was great in arranging everything. Prices were great and clothes were cleanly folded and packaged.
