I felt that presentation came first at this restaurant, followed by reputation (our signature dish), service, convenience and finally flavor/execution. Peking duck was ok, but I’ve had better. They used a bunch of cutesy side dishes and sauces to ramp up the wow factor. However,...it did anything but wow me. Lots of crispy fat, so if that’s your thing, give it a try. The big disappointment was the cabbage, also a “signature dish”. Flavor was decent, but that texture, or lack of, reminded me of eating mushy, soggy, boiled Brussel sprouts. YUCK! Find a mom and pop shop for a fraction of the price and way better execution. Let the tourists have Hua’s.More

Dinner was good. I liked the tasty Chinese cucumber soup, tasty beef cubes, tea varieties, and the after-dinner performance, with a mix of entertaining performers.

The Chinese cuisine served is very good. I especially liked the half duck, Signature Kung Pao shrimp, sauteed beef cubes, and scallion oil pancakes. The inside of the restaurant could use an upgrade. It was noisy during our visit, due to some type of car...salesmen gathering filling the main portion of the restaurant. The theatre performance which began at about 8 pm, was fairly nice, and included magic tricks, Beijing opera, and Sichuan-type ace changing performance.More

This restaurant has a wonderful variety of traditional Chinese cuisine. It specializes in crayfish and Peking duck. It's a great place to bring visitors from abroad. The food is good and they have a lively stage show that's very entertaining.

After visiting Huajia Yiyuan restaurant in Beijing, I am learning to love Chinese! I was not necessarily a fan of Chinese food until this trip, but have definitely done a 360!

Our hotel was nearby and they recommended this restaurant for the Peking Duck. We turned up and were drawn in by the ducks hanging in the window and chefs busy slicing them. While there were some groups of western tourists there were also plenty of...Chinese. We were assisted by Jacky who spoke good English and encouraged us to wait for a table in the main room so we could watch the show. At this time there were some musicians playing traditional instruments. Once seated we navigated the menu (pictures and some English ). As the duck takes some time we ordered some pork balls and wok fried beans with pork to start. Sensational! Jacky also threw in a duck soup as well- very tasty. It so happened that an Australian chardonnay was on the specials list that night so we couldn't say no. The duck arrived in all its glory, expertly sliced and beautifully presented with vegetable and sauce accompaniments and beautiful delicate rolled pancakes. We ate the lot. Meanwhile the show continued with a magician, an opera singer and an amazing man who managed to change face masks with a twitch of his cape. This feast and entertainment cost us just over 500rmb. It was a memorable evening with great food and helpful service. Highly recommended!More

Good atmosphere at the courtyard. Not very sophisticated food but very good traditional food. Had the duck and some pork Kung pai and some additional appetizers.

The duck was excellent. We also had braised green beans which were also delicious. I especially loved the ambience. I would recommend this as a great tourist experience.

I was introduced to this restaurant by an expat about 10 years ago and I keep going back every time I'm in town. So I've been to it about 6-7 times. I also recommend it to all of my friends heading to Beijing. Why? Because...the food is in excellent quality, the dishes are both well prepared and presented. The atmosphere is very authentic and you see a lot of locals. It has served quite a few (western) celebrities, too. At 8 pm they also have a kind of a show to entertain the guests. As in many restaurants in China you can bring your own alcohol for no charge. It's not about making your bill smaller but have a drink you really like with such a good food. Especially handy in case your drink is wine. There is pretty decent selection of wines in the store just next door.More

Hi, 17th/Feb should be open. I am not quite sure if 16th is open, however you may give them a call before you go. There is a 70% chance of opening on that day. Cheers!
