Beijing Restaurants

Baijia Dayuan (Báijiā dà zháimén)

Updated 08/30/2014

Fodor's Review

Staff dressed in richly hued, Qing-dynasty attire welcome you at this grand courtyard house, the Bai family mansion. Bowing slightly, they'll say "Nin jixiang" ("May you have good fortune"). The mansion's spectacular setting was once the garden of Prince Li, son of the first Qing emperor. Cao Xueqin, the author of the Chinese classic Dream of the Red Chamber, is said to have lived here as a boy. Featured delicacies (ordered via an iPad) include bird's-nest

soup, braised sea cucumber, abalone, and authentic imperial snacks. On weekends, diners are treated to short, live performances of Beijing opera. After dinner, explore the beautiful garden.
