The building is named after Xihe, called Xihe Bistro, which perfectly combines spirit and form, carries pleasure and joy. Xihe started to gain popularity in a prosperous age and has further developed in Beijing ever since. It is famous for Xihe roast duck and its excellent cooking skills. It inherits the essence of traditional delicious food in China and absorbs advantages from other culinary techniques, opening up completely new possibilities for Chinese dishes. Well-grounded, it has formed a distinctive style of its own.
There is an old Chinese saying that goes like this: if we want a tree to be tall, we must fix its root firmly; if we want a river to flow afar, we must widen its source. This is exactly Xihe Bistro’s philosophy of life. We think much of the ties of friendship and integrity and would like to maintain harmonious relations with our family and friends, which embodies good virtues.
Guided by the doctrine of mean and balance, Xihe Bistro was established in a tranquil courtyard of the ancient capital. There are stone walls and clear springs, small halls and winding corridors, blue bricks and black tiles, ancient trees and fresh shadows. What a magnificent sight!
The waiters are all dressed simply in a traditional-fashioned way. So this is the perfect place for entertaining friends, holding wedding ceremonies and family dinners, which is like a garden full of peaches and plums or somewhere filled with orchids and glossy ganodermas.
