Dali Courtyard

Yunnan in Drum Tower & Dongcheng North

Dali Courtyard has been serving the same set menu since 2006, and it still packs out nightly with (almost exclusively) foreign tourists. The secret, aside from the charming courtyard setting, is simplicity. No menu means no hassle – just course after course of play-it-safe Yunnan classics at ¥160 per person, starting with cold starters and ending with grilled fish.

Drinks cost extra, and are rather expensive.
