Q: Great restaurants to take international visitors in Beijing?

Got visitors coming real soon and want to give them the best culinary experience possible while here. However, the local places I always go to are not exactly the type of places someone fresh off the boat from the West will like (grimy, hole-in-the-wall interior, plastic plates etc). But, I'm also not rich either so if anyone knows any tasty mid-range Chinese restaurants please let me know!

Huge rows of restaurants between Bexinqiao and Dongzhimen..always very crowded with locals but look a bit nicer than hole-in-the-wall places. Not sure of the price range though.

全聚德 the roast duck/Peking duck place. That's my friend (Canadian) 2nd favorite dine out when she visited China last year. Her favorite was having dumpling on the street in Xi'an.

I  suppose it depends on your guests and only you will know that.

 

Personally when I first came to China the hole in the walls were frightening, (maybe a little too frightening) but I WANTED to see and feel the real deal China not a westernised bastardisation of it.

 

If I were you, first night, take them to a semi-westernised place at usual dinner time, then take them for a few drinks till a normal Chinese hour (midnight-ish) and then take them to a street BBQ. Judge what they like after that.

If you want to go back a few hundred years in time and experience a modern Chinese twist for the price of a meal back home, pop along to here  -   Baijia Courtyard. Suzhou Street Haidian    About 200 yards north of Suzhoujie, line 10.   The ambiance is amazing, not many tourists.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
