The options for great dining in Beijing are multiplying, but Bei has remained a constant favourite among diners for its great food and unobtrusive service. This winning formula has been made even more inviting by extras such as a newly designed interior featuring intimate smaller tables and a renovated dining room that’s more congenial. Bei is easy to love. With the friendly smile of manager Diana Dang and the winning food of Max Levy, last year’s winner of our ‘Chef of the Year’ category, deciding on a meal at Bei is a no-brainer.
To be deemed great, a restaurant relies on taste but also emotion, and Bei hits all these notes, effortlessly swaying diners into loving submission with a tempting bit of crispy roast pig, or homemade tofu. Thanks to a selection of consistently clean and creative sashimi, which is among the city’s best, giving yourself over to Bei’s ‘Chef’s menu’ is no gamble.
Add to this a generous choice of sakes and sojus, and you may fall on your knees to give thanks. Bei is not a Japanese restaurant as many assume, but serves an amalgam of the cuisines of Korea and northern China, with a good dose of Japan’s culinary refinement added into the mix. Casual diners and those who like to indulge will both find themselves over the moon at Bei.
Bei won multiple awards in the Time Out Beijing
Food Awards 2011 and these accolades, alongside this year’s triumph, are testimony that an extraordinary dining experience is a sure thing at this restaurant.
Serving one of Beijing's best dishes!
