Xiheyaju Restaurant, Beijing: 4 reviews and 3 photos

Xiheyaju is well known to the expat community, lying in an ideal spot close to the embassies and also the main Central Business District. It is tucked away behind the big grey walls of Ritan Park, a particularly popular kite-flying park, so a quiet walk in the park can precede or follow your meal.
Despite it's popularity I suspect that most diners do not realise that there are two gardens at this excellent restaurant. The obvious one, at the entrance is always crowded when the weather is crowded. The second one is behind the main resturant and is always deserted. Needless to say, the rear garden is much nicer.
They have a very good, extensive menu, and service is quick and friendly. They are used to the vagaries of laowai.

Favorite Dish: Too many to mention.

Open from 11am-2pm for lunch and from 5pm-10pm for dinner.

Address: Ritan donglu
Price Comparison: about average
Directions: On the NE corner of Ritan Park. The entrance is a just a gateway in the wall. It is almost opposite Creation Gallery.
