Fodor's Review

The Source dishes up dainty set menus of Sichuan-inspired favorites (RMB 188 or 288 per person) in a romantic, historic courtyard. Dishes change according to seasonality, but you can expect several hot and cold appetizers, meat and seafood dishes, and a few surprise concoctions from the chef, all tweaked for international palates (the waitresses will ask how spicy you like your food). On a peaceful hutong intersecting busy Nanluogu Xiang, the buiding was once the backyard of a Qing Dynasty general referred to by the Imperial court as "The Great Wall of China" for his military exploits. The grounds have been painstakingly restored; an upper level overlooks a small garden shaded by pomegranate and date trees.
