Let me tell you in four words why Capital M is a must whenever you find yourself in Beijing: Location, Style and Outstanding Food!


This restaurant offers a stunning view of three of the main gates in the Chinese capital: Qianmen, Tiananmen and Zhengyangmen. The first time you step into this restaurant, you will feel as though you are entering the imagination of some surrealist painter, such is the imaginative and trendy d茅cor. Capital M is a simply stunning space full of style and glamour, but thankfully it is never stiff. Above all, it serves amazing and creative food! The menu is mainly modern European cuisine but it also offers some twists on Asian classics and nostalgic dishes from the Middle East and North Africa. All the food is perfectly executed by Chef Gary Martin and his amazing team.

But they offer some classic favourites that you just can麓t miss: M鈥檚 Crispy Suckling Pig; the Hot House-Smoked Salmon; and the Slowly Baked, Salt-Encased Selected Leg of Lamb, which is just out of this world. But like all great restaurants they tend to save the best for last. Perhaps the most impressive thing about Capital M is the grand dessert platter (楼108/person). The two tiers of sweets include an outstanding cr猫me brulee and a large slice of M鈥檚 famous pavlova. For those with not such a sweet tooth, you can also try the rather remarkable cheese plate.


Capital M was founded in 2009 by Melbourne-born Michelle Garnaut. Before then Garnaut was already very well known in China, as over the previous 25 years he had opened several celebrated restaurants in the country, such as the famous M on the Bund and the Glamour Bar, both in Shanghai, and M at the Fringe in Hong Kong.

Check on-line for their latest menus as they change with the seasons and are driven by what鈥檚 available at the market. Skip the overpriced hotel buffets and enjoy a tailor made brunch made with the finest ingredients. Treat yourself to a glass or two of champagne or why not try one of their signature cocktails?


In short, Capital M is a great place to enjoy a decadent and tasty but reasonably priced lunch with your family, relax with an afternoon tea after a busy day or surprise that special one with a romantic dinner. Whatever the occasion, you won鈥檛 be disappointed!
