Purple Haze

While exploring Beijing around the Salitun area, I stumbled across a wonderful little Thai restaurant that serves authentic Thai food every day of the week. It is located in the Salitun area, the nearest subway stop being Dongzhmen which is on line two there are also many buses that go pass this street, If you want some travel tips check out china travel . From the outside this place looks like nothing but a mere purple shack, but once inside you can see the Asian inspired purple decor with low tables and dim lighting- is very relaxing.

When I went here I just turned up however, I would recommend booking in advance as it can get very busy especially on a Saturday night. This restaurant is very reasonably- priced, with a great atmosphere to chill and have a nice meal. My favourite was the Thai green curry which came in a massive pot with enough for 2 to easily share, it was just the right amount of spice and sweetness from the coconut. All main meals come with steamed white rice.

Inside Purple Haze

I would definitely suggest trying at least one of the many cocktails they have, I opted for the ginger and Gin which was divine. They also have many non-alcoholic cocktails and beverages which are packed with fruit and are very delicious. Everyday they have a special cocktail of the day which is available at half the price it usually costs.

If this account has inspired you to want to travel Beijing but don’t know where to start for some great low cost travel idea’s go to China Tours. Or if you need advice on hotels go to China Hotels.

    Thanks to this blog I decided to visit Purple Haze, it was just as good as you said! I sampled the Gin and Ginger ale which was refreshingly different from what I would usually choose. I would recommend the Jungle curry but be warned it’s not for the faint hearted!!
