Great Tim sum and best xiaolongbao I've had for a long time. The restaurant was able to reserve some dim sum for dinner even though they don't serve them at night. The service was great and the waitresses were attentive - recommended if you need some hongkong styled dim sum quick fix!

We ate and we ate and we ate. The food is a tad oily but very good. The roast pork and char siew has been done so many times by so many restaurants but this one was exceptional. Another dish remembering was their soup of the day and also the lotus rice. They were very busy so have reservations -... More

Greeted by staff who speak nothing else but Chinese, Lei Garden was our worst experience in Beijing. Visitors to Lie Garden beware of your credit card as staff could swipe several times without telling you. It happened to us but what made it worse that the staff lied to us and ultimately admitted after 30 minutes. When reported the incident... More

Great Dim Sum and ideal for lunch (do book as it get's busy with local people) however almost nobody in the place is able to communicate in English but they do their best to help you. I had a reservation made through my hotel however it turned out to be useless as nobody at the reception of the restaurant understood... More

It was very near our hotel and we had just arrived from the airport. The hotel made a reservation for us and it was a great introduction to Beijing. Perfect service and so many options on the menu! The food was delicious. Private dining rooms were available.

The restaurant itself is very nice, looks like it's split into two parts, both interiors quite elegant but informal. We had the dim sum here which was fantastic, the filo pastry was to die for as were the Wagyu beef dumplings, very attentive service and amazing value for money

I went to Lei Garden on a weekday at around 1 pm and was seated right away. The wait staff was very friendly and attentive. I had tea and 4 different dim sum dishes, each dish cost about 30 RMB. I am a light eater and could have gotten away with 3 dishes. I wish I had tried this place... More

Lei Garden looks a bit dated at this stage. If you don't mind the service trying to sell you everything that is on the menu, and other goods to take home for Chinese New Year, then you are in for some solid dim sum. Perhaps not as good as Seventh Son and Huang Ting, this is still one of the... More
