The interior in this restaurant is unique (doesn't look like any other Chinese restaurant I tried), the food is excellent (and you can get all sorts of spicy from non-spicy to burning, it's Sichuan food, so a lot of it is spicy). The staff is friendly and you can get by on English if you don't speak Chinese.

I've been heer several times and I will come back for sure. It's one of the best restaurants I have tried in China. For a restaurant in China, it's in the expensive range, but compared to similar restaurants in Europe it's still good vanlue for money (unless you like the Chinese specialities, like swallows' nest and sea cucumber, which is very expensive).

They have babychairs.

Learning that South Beauty is a national chain has not dampened my enthusiasm for recommending it to friends. I have now eaten at South Beauty in Tianjin and Beijing, and I find there to be consistently fresh, high quality and interesting dishes at every visit with every group of friends. The menus are like picture story books with large clear pictures and descriptions in Chinese and English. People tend to have fun ordering and there is quite a diversity of choices for any taste or diet. Many prices are expensive, while some are quite reasonable for what is being served, yet others are unbelievably pricey (rare seafoods, birds' nests, etc...). This is one place that seems to impress Chinese and foreigners equally. I am surprised it is not more highly rated, although I must say the entire restaurant list on TA seems a poor reflection of what is actually there.

Good & spicy but not great. They are not open for long so they may need to get their recipes in order. Decoration is impressive: beautiful mirror above the bar, great lampshades and oversized sofas.
