Huajia Yiyuan Restaurant Review

: This huge warren of courtyard rooms is a delightful introduction to middle-tier Chinese dining, and it attracts locals and overseas tourists to its leafy, bird-twittering interior. While the service isn’t topnotch---polite yet forgetful---the surroundings are so striking it’s forgivable. There is a host of seafood available, from the spiky, angry-looking sea cucumber to delicate cuts of snow fish with country pepper. Vegetarians can order a little porcelain grill with skewers of vegetables. The Beijing roast duck---the ovens are in an open kitchen---is first-rate. The biblical-size menu offers a helpful “foreigner favorites” section which lists pan-fried chicken with lemon sauce. All the nooks and crannies and corridors to run around and hide in mean that children will like it too.
