Super little spot hidden in an office basement

I could eat here every day... great variety, though as with many similar restaurants in Beijing, note that menu prices vary wildly. There are 10-20 RMB noodle and rice dishes in the back, while fancier 50-100 RMB creations take up most of the center part. From what I can tell, no English is spoken.

Also note that this is in the Fortune Time building, and not the Resource building (where Starbucks is). I made this mistake and ended up in the corridors of the basement of the other... some very nice ladies were kind enough to get me sorted out though. The actual restaurant is in an odd little impromptu food court with a few other establishments, and the whole place is very busy.

Pros: Great traditional taste, Variety, Peaceful oasis
Cons: Tricky location, No English

Huge selection of mostly Chinese vegan food on the menu and buffet. Lots of seating. Busy restaurant with great location across from the Confucius temple, and next to Lama temple. Worth a visit. Staff speaks very little English

    My apologies - gave wrong location information here. Xu Xiang Zhai is across from the Confucius Temple. I have not been to this restaurant.

In the basement of Fortune Time building on the opposite side of the road from the Ritz Carlton this restaurant is on the basement along with a few other restaurant. Once you go doen the escalator turn left and the resturant is on your left side.

Order some pumpkin in peanut, fake duck, sizzling steak and some lotus root accompnaied by a large pot of camomile tea. The menu is in English. Total bill for two was about 170 Yuan. Good value for the quantity of food.

Recommended if you are in the financial district.

Fun place

It is in the BASEMENT of the Fortune Time building (hence the B). It is right in the center and faintly says "Vegetarian Restaurant" in the glass. It is probably one of the less well-marked veg restaurant in China. Also, there are other restaurants around it.

Yun Wei is in the moderate price range for vegetarian fare in Beijing. I had the best faux-steak meal I have had in all of China. The accompanying sauce was great, but the vegetable with it was overly bitter. I also enjoyed the very interesting crab cake which is only Y5 each. I also got cold noodles with a peanut sauce which was my favorite. The staff was very friendly.

Pros: friendly staff, great crisp steak bits
Cons: location, a bit pricier than some
