    Jin Ding Xuan Restaurant: Great place for Dim Sum

    by blueskyjohn Written Aug 27, 2015

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a very popular place with locals and tourist a like. They have three locations around Beijing but I went to the location just outside Di Tan Park (Altar of the Earth). While this is a very large restaurant with at least three main floors, there still can be quite a wait to get in. Before you enter there is a hostess at a podium who will give you a number. However, when they announce the number over a loud speaker, it is in Chinese. I was with people who speak Chinese so I paid no attention to where this number may also be posted.

    We were seated on the third floor near the large picture glass windows. The menu is extensive. There are pictures and a description in English under the Chinese description. Still, some is lost in translation, especially when it comes to seasonings. You can definitely distinguish between pork, beef, vegetable or seafood.

    Some of the items we ordered were the Lotus Root stuffed with sticky rice in some type of sweet syrup. This was more of a desert I've had at other places but it was brought out first. There was also a very good vegetable dumpling type dish except it was long and narrow. Tasted just like a regular dumpling. Very good! The other dishes I am not sure what they were called although I've ahd them at other Dim Sum places. Jin Ding Xuan is a definite stand out. If you like Dim Sum, this is a must try place when visiting Beijing!

    by pinksgone Written Nov 1, 2011

    Best 24 hour restaurant in the city. They offer Chinese cuisines from 4 different areas around China. Tour groups are brought through quite regularly (I'm guessing) because of the variety and high quality of foods. Affordable with menus in Chinese and English.

    Favorite Dish: Go for anything Tofu, bamboo shoots, and lotus root.

  • Jin Ting Xuan Restaurant: Simply delicious

    by suchin Written Jul 18, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a 3 storey restaurant located near YongHe Gong. The ambience is very oriental and bustling with activity. As we did not make any reservation, we had to wait for ten minutes for a table. Prices are reasonable for the quality of food (comparing with prices in Singapore).

    Favorite Dish: I specially love their papaya sharkfin. Simply delicious. A must try. I will definitely be back for more!

    Address: He Ping Li West Street No 77.

    Directions: If you are taking the train, alight at Yong He Gong and follow the direction at the station.
