It’s not easy to find but the effort is worth it! The cooking is really something: no menu but many dishes served with fantasy and taste. They do consider to change the ingredients if you have allergy or intolerances. Good the aromatic water with herbs...More

Great location, in a hutong courtyard off a very busy main road. A welcome oasis amidst the chaos. Set menu for lunch was delicious (though too spicy for my friend). Friendly service.

Had a pleasant dinner with my wife in this courtyard-style restaurant. It's named after Dali, a city in China's southern Yunnan province, marked by high mountains scenery. They serve a fixed menu, which includes many dishes (no dessert), for a fair price. It changes every...More

Great service from bilingual staff. It's set menu only, everything brought out was just amazing. Complex flavours, balanced perfectly. Would go back again in a heartbeat, and will seek out Yunnan cuisine in the future!
