We went here twice on our 5 day visit to beijing. We highly recommend the salads (both the chicken cabbage salad and the Beef Papaya salad) - they were the highlights of the meal! We also recommend the flash-fried beef and the shrimp spring roll with peanut sauce. Make reservations, this place is very popular!

Like many things in Beijing, the best ones are hidden from view in plain sight. This excellent Vietnamese restaurant was no exception, as it's hidden at the far end of Qian Liang XiXiang Hutong behind a red door. There is no sign or lanterns to indicate that there is a restaurant there, and the entrance could easily be mistaken for... More

Shortly after arriving in Beijing from San Francisco, my daughter took me to Susu, one of her favorite restaurants in Beijing. I can see why! The restaurant is located off a quiet hutong and the serene ambience was particularly welcome after a long day of travel. The food was sublime--light and delicious. We sat at the Chef's counter and watched... More

A friend took us here for lunch, we would not have found it on our own, it's very hidden in a backstreet, even when you stand in front of it, you would not find it. When we walked trough that door, we could not believe, what a lovely place was waiting for us. It's a very western style restaurant and... More

I'd go as far to say this is the best Vietnamese place outside of Vietnam itself. A great, though hard to find location, with a fantastic roof terrace. The food is both authentic and sublime. The staff are of the highest professionalism and speak fluent English. The cocktails are fantastic and the barman will welcome a chance to show off... More

Light, flavorful dishes served in a beautifully renovated hutong tucked away off the busy streets. Nice selection of flavorful salads, entrees and wines. Loved the fresh spring rolls. Definitely a favorite of ours since moving to Beijing. Can't wait to return!

You have to venture down a long and slightly dodgy alley (hutong) to find this place but it is so worth it. Susu is a warm and lovely little Vietnamese restaurant with incredible pho, which we enjoyed with spring rolls and chili lemongrass chicken for lunch. They have a nice wine list as well and a pretty courtyard in the... More

Surely this is one of the places you will hardly find on your own. So best have somebody giving you precise directions. Once you crossed the wooden Chinese door (sorry, no signage whatsoever!), you enter a pretty smart and relaxed atmosphere. The food is mostly southern Vietnamese fare. Do try the nice fish dishes, they are wonderfully done. Very tasty!!... More

We were staying at a hotel on Wangfujing and wanted a different dining experience nearby. It was very close, but very hard to find. Luckily we met a couple heading there for dinner who showed us the way. It is located at the end of an alley on the south side of Quianlian Hutong street about 100m from Dafosi E... More
