Definitely one of the best Hakka restaurant. Good taste and yet very reasonably priced.
They have a few branchese around but in my opinion the maiden shop at Sanlitun preserves the best taste they can give.
The speed for them to serve the dishes is increadibly fast. However, this place is always crowed. If you reach there after 7pm, you might have to wait in the queue for as long as an hour. My advise is to be there slightly earlier cos it seems that most Beijinger then to rush into that place at about the same time. Be there around 6:45pm should be good enough to get a table.
It is extremely difficult to locate the place. However, I was there like almost every other weekend. Just follow the direction below and you wont miss it!!
Coming from the Embassy area, enter Sanlitun from the North. Just right before the bar street, you should see a tiny junction leading you to the "Thai Elephant restaurant, with a huge CROSS (X) signboard for Cross Bar, at the junction. Take a right turn and walk for about 50 steps . When you see an entrance (with some sort of gate like structure) on your right, turn into the local estates (hutong). Don't worry about the darkness of the place... 100% safe there. I have done it more than 50 times. Keep walking straight up, the restaurant is about 60 steps from the entrance.
