Time stops at Aotu. Yesterday I was there and suddenly I found myself learning how to draw using aquill all in a long table full of artists (or not) all enjoying the afternoon together, coming and going, painting, drinking and chating.
Ordered on the website but it didn't work. Called them to figure out what had happened - the guy said he would check and turned off the phone! Really? Called them again and the guy told me it would take an hour and half to deliver daobao? Really?
Came here after lunch and was very impressed. The cookies and brownies are amazing. On that day they had a good deal on brownies. Way better than most anything you would get at other chain stores here.
Came here with some co-workers for lunch and was impressed overall. I liked the relaxed atmosphere and decor. Most people ended up getting the burger and it went over pretty well. The pizzas were good and ingredients were fresh. The portions of the chicken and rice could have been bigger. Staff was attentive and the complimentary bread was nice.
I'm new in Beijing and decided to get another suit for work purposes. I looked around and thought that Lisa Tailor would be a good bet. It was a big mistake. After so many rounds of back and forth, the end result is a lot of frustration, bad fit, and a crumpled mess in a courier package. STAY FAR FAR AWAY. I wished I saw the first result when I googled Lisa Tailor Review. It was a very bad one and seemed all too familiar with my experience
we went to TRB for our duo birthday celebration. Despite one black sheep* that spoilt my mood upon our arrival, food was excellent and service was awesome! Very decent wine and food tasting that came with very professional introduction by the staff; a very cool photo of us (with the birthday cakes and candles) and two TRB mugs were given away as presents; it was a memorable evening in Beijing.
* a female staff (guess she is a rookie though) led us into the dining room and asked '您想要靠窗的桌子么？您可以顺便问问他（我的丈夫）么？' (would you like a table by the window? can you also ask him (my husband)?) --- 1. I am an oversea Chinese, I am not a mainlander; I speak Mandarin but it doesn't mean that I have to speak Mandarin at a place like TRB. 2. I am a guest, I am not a translator or interpreter.
The thing is, we both spoke English to the staff upon arrival, and I expect the same thing from them. My husband speaks no Mandarin, and it was our birthday dinner, I expect a relaxed evening. When it comes to restaurant in Beijing, I do not expect anything; but come on, it is TRB, I do expect sophisticated services.
