There's 2 branches of Lei Garden in Beijing (the other is in the Guomao area), and both serve stellar Cantonese food and the city's best dim sum. I went to the Guomao branch. Lei Garden in Hong Kong is Michelin-starred, and they served the freshest and most delicate dim sum I've ever had.Reservations are recommended, and when you call beforehand, you can place an order for extra-popular items like egg tarts (dan ta), roast pork buns (cha sha bao), egg custard buns, and the pork platter. These items often run out, so it's best to secure in advance.The steamed egg yolk custard bun (lau sar bao) was one of the most glorious Chinese sweets I've ever had: soft, warm, and creamy, with a cloud-like spongy outside. My dining partner's face lit up in a smile when he took his first bite. Everything we tried was excellent, including the shrimp dumplings, signature pork platter, beef ho fun, egg custard, etc.Bill was 600+ rmb for 2, which is not cheap by Beijing standards, but a steal compared to what you'd get in the West and for the quality of food. The decor in the Guomao branch is elegant and serene in a very Asian way.

The food was very good but very limited. Every time we asked for something on the menu, it was not available...maybe after 5 or 6 "trials" we finally found something that was available.And the people attending tables understood hardly a word of English. Very difficult to communicate. We probably had bad luck, as this restaurant is highly recommended

Our first meal in Beijing shortly after landing. The experience was much better than our later visit to a Hong Kong branch. Although they did not have an English dim sum menu, our waiter very patiently went through the selection. Once the food arrived we were very pleased. What stood out were shrimp in rice noodle. The rice noodle was very thin and delicate and not at all doughy. The excellent jasmin tea and attentive service really hit the spot as well.
