Booked this restaurant for my works end of month meal based on the good reviews.
Four of us went at 8.30pm on a saturday night and the restaurant wasn't too busy, firstly the tables were really small, we struggled to all get around the table, but as its a small place we didnt really mind.
One thing that did really annoy me and i nearly got up and walked out was the fact we were paying for an all you can eat Chinese, yet after having a bottle of wine and a couple of beers after around 35 mins we were finally asked what we wanted to eat.
We ordered two dishes each thinking we could all have a bit of each others, prawn toasts, spring rolls ect.
while we was waiting we were asked if we wanted more drinks, witch we did, another bottle of wine and another two beers.
so far we had been there for around 45-50 mins and hadnt touched anything food related apart from the free prawn crackers on the table,
by the time the food turned up we has polished off four large beers and two bottles of wine, (we could kind of see what was happening here)
it got to about 9.25-9.30 ish nearly an hour and one silver platter turned up, first of all we thought maybe this was an extra share dish to nibble on to go with our dishes we ordered, but no... everything we had ordered between the four of us came out on this one silver plate, ONE prawn toast, ONE spring roll, litteraly one of everything we ordered! so the sharing idea was out of the window! i asked for more prawn crackers and the lady asked if we wanted more drink, so four more large beers were ordered,
out came the beers and prawn crackers and the waitress swiftly wondered off before we could order anything else.
we tried to wave down the waitress a few times to order more after we had eaten the tiny amount we were dished up but she just walked past and smiled each time.
by this point it was getting late, we was bored and pretty tipsy and was ready to go onto are next destination,
it took us about 35 mins just to get the bill! i think they were trying to avoid us from ordering more food! we left the restaurant about 11pm, ive never ever been in a restaurant for so long in my life and eaten so little.

i would NEVER EVER come back here and would advise no one to go here unless you want to get completely ripped off.
they clearly don't want returning customers, all about making money of their drinks. and at £15 a head they clearly made alot of money on the food.

This is the best Chinese take away we have found. Delivery can be a bit slow, but I take that as a good singe cause they are obviously busy.

I have used Beijing for some 7 years or more now... Not once in that time have I ever been disappointed or had cause for concern.. I regularly get a take away delivered and if they say its going to 45 mins, then 45 mins it is... Yes you may have to wait an hour for a meal to be delivered, but that only means they are busy!!! I would worry more if a Chinese could deliver in 15 minutes flat!!!! Quality like Beijing is worth waiting for!!!
