Superb buffet, good a la carte - Edit

Jing Lian Zhai at 16 Suzhou Lu, 170911 and 13

This restaurant has a lunch buffet that is superb with a wide selection of cold and hot dishes and even a few western dishes included. Can see why it is popular and runs out. It also has an a la carte menu the rest of the time and does take away food also. Price for the buffet at 38 yuan is very good value and even the a la carte meal was reasonable at about 50 yuan /person. Only difficulty with the menu was that it was just a list of dish names without descriptions and no photos so it was a bit of a guessing game – but all turned out nicely.
Helpful and cheerful staff.
Canteen like decor and setting but more than compensated for by the food.
No longer has a McDonalds beside it but is still at 16 Suzhou Street, set a little back from the intersection with the 4th Ring Road. Has a large, clear sign.

Pros: Food very good, Cheap, Not far from Zongguancun metro statino

Cons: None

Buffets are Awesome - Edit

I'm a big fan of this place. If I have to go to 北大 Běidà (AKA 北京大学 or PKU or Peking University) or 中关村 Zhōngguāncūn (tech neighborhood to buy/repair electronics), I make the small detour to visit here.

The only cons have to do with it being very popular so (a) it's crowded and (b) food goes fast, so you might not get every dish you want. They have signs everywhere discouraging waste. Don't take more than you can eat!
