Beijing City's selection of fresh, handmade dumplings can be ordered fried or served swimming in a rich broth. The spicy noodle soups, pancakes and pork served on rice, are among the other tasty options on offer. It's an easy, wham bam thank you ma'am Chinese option.

Restaurants, Japanese

Camper's

Camper's is, unsurprisingly, a Camping-themed Japanese restaurant. There's camping paraphernalia scattered around and wood panels give the interior a distinctly cabin-like feel to the decor. Home-style Japanese dishes are the name of the game here, try the stir fried pork with ginger sauce, or the rice topped with beef and egg, or alternatively, slurp on a bowl of ramen.

CIAK - All Day Italian

Celebrated Italian chef Umberto Bombana is the man behind this dining concept. Bombana is also the man who helms the only three Michelin-starred Italian restaurants outside of Italy - 8 1/2 Otto e Mezzo. CIAK - All Day Italian is a more casual affair, serving hearty and traditional Italian grub. Tuck into fine meats, traditional pork sausages, fresh pastas and pizzas and delectable homemade cakes or pastries for something sweet.

Restaurants

The Codfather Oyster and Seafood Bar

Super fresh oysters and massive prawns make this a place a real catch. A good wine list, pasta cooked al dente and the laid back, but chic interiors, ensure a very pleasant evening. It's a pleasure to sit in The Codfather's outdoor area and eat cold seafood over drinks at sunset.
