When is Cai Yi Xuan open?

Answers from Our Experts (1)

Four Seasons Hotel Beijing’s Cai Yi Xuan is open every day for lunch from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and dinner from 5:30 to 10:30 p.m. There is no lunch menu as such, but being a restaurant that specializes in Cantonese dim sum, it’s customary during the day to order a variety of dim sum snacks, such as changfen filled with barbecued pork or shrimp, fried turnip cake (luobogao) with XO sauce, a steamer of delicately pleated soup dumplings with crab (a Shanghai specialty, in fact), baked custard tarts (danta) and also some of the more idiosyncratic Beijing dim sum items, like plump boiled dumplings with pork and cabbage and jianbing, a spicy egg crêpe. At dinner, expect local diners to focus their culinary affections toward the live seafood and Cantonese roasted meats sections of the menu at the Beijing restaurant.
