Respond to Review of King's Joy
by Bernhard M.
Review: I am sorry, that other members of Happycow.net had negatove experiences in King's Joy, Beijing. for us it was a very nice evening. (Despite the fact, that I turned from vegan to vegetarian for the limited time of a week in Beijing) Here our experience: Our last evening in Beijing we wanted to have some special dining experience. Being vegetarians/vegans from Austria, our choice was simple: We headed for the "best": King's Joy! Sunday evening, the place not crowded, but with a very special music: a Lady that played the harp! How extraordinary is this nowadays! Our young and charming host: Ms Zhaoyayun guided us through the i-pad menu and we took the "8 course" set meal. Food was just excellent, many different nuances, natural ingredients and very creatively arranged on the plates. In Berlin and Vienna we know Restaurants with similar quality and subtlety, but we did not hope to get something special in Beijing. Pricewise, Kings Joy is on the high end of the scale (499 each set menu, plus wine) but it was worth every Yuan. This was a very exclusive end of our first stay in Beijing. We certainly will come back and try some of the other delicate meals. So please make your own picture about this fabulous restaurant with it's stylish - awardwinning - interior and the little garden. It is worth a visit, if you want to experience something special!
