This is a very large Hot Pot Restaurant. Local clientele and very busy. Not a tourist spot but the menu is ok for those of us who are not Mandarin speakers. The Hot Pot is a collection of meat and veg that diners cook in a beef broth pot that's on the table. Very tasty, very unusual... Highly recommended

First time at a Beijing hotpot restaraunt and it went well - friendly, helpful staff despite language barrier, big choice on menu and busy with atmosphere. Novelty great, but probably takes a bit of experience to get the taste combinations right.

Food and service were good. Had hot pot elsewhere in China and this was different having your own hot pot. We got there at 5.30 and were seated after almost an hour, only issue was we weren't offered any drinks whilst we waited but did notice one other patron did purchase water so it was possible. English is limited by... More

This is a big, fancy looking place just north of Jingshan Park. When we arrived for dinner it was pretty busy, we were handed a ticket we couldn’t read and we sat down to wait, speculating as to what the numbers were that were being called. We didn’t have to wait too long before we were led to a table... More

We found the restaurant by luck at the corner of the street after forbidden city visit. It was a nice surprise. Mongolian hotpot. The lamb and cuttlefish fish balls was so fresh and tasty. I do recommend the place. (++ friendly and smiling staff)

Randomly happened to stumble upon this place & had never tried hotpot before. Staff was kind to our one year old and food tasted great!

This was a fallback restaurant for us as the first choice, recommended by a local Beijinger, was not available. The restaurant is quite close to the Jingshan Park, a short walk away from the Jingshan Houjie (i.e. back street). We got a big table in a private room, which can seat easily 16 people around the table. The huge lazy... More

There must be at least a thousand places to eat hot pot in Beijing. This one is huge, and for reasons unknown, extremely crowded. We waited over an hour for two people to sit down. Although I am competent in Chinese and can read a fair amount, still very helpful to have the photos and English translations on the menu.... More

This restaurant is quite big and caters to tour groups, but nevertheless it is an inexpensive place for Mongolian Hotpot. You get your own brass hotpot in which you boil your food. You decide how spicy the broth is to be and order all the ingredients you like (different types of meat, vegetables, noddles, etc.). The quality of the food... More
