This raucous Xinjiang (the Muslim/Uighur region in northwest China) restaurant attracts both local and foreign gourmands looking for hearty food and heartier still entertainment. Even the classic Xinjiang dishes, such as roasted mutton joints, barbecued beef and meat kebabs struggle to prize diners' attention from the dazzling spectacle of central-Asian musicians and dancers. The belly dancers are particularly distracting. Most evenings end with everyone dancing on the heavy wooden tables to this mad musical accompaniment. The experience is unforgettable, but is very popular with large corporate groups, so be sure to book several days in advance.
We were eight people at our table and we all enjoyed the food and the ambiance too. I thought it was really good, the meat and vegetables alike. The dancers were really great and later on everyone in the restaurant had the option to go dance on stage & on their tables as well.
My husband and I would take our friends and family to Afunti when they visit Beijing, since it is a one of a kind dining experience.
um i thought it was actually pretty dorn good.. it was my first time but yeah,,well wish i could have gone there more but it was like a keep on moving trip not sit in one city for two days.. we left the next day.. but keep up the good work and you guys will do good.
the food was so naty and it had hairs in it it was nasty i dont no wat they put inm the food because it wasnt that good and the people that came with me also said it was the most disgustin food ever!! and very bad tasting
Afunti makes for an interesting night out if you are visiting Beijing. Combining some passable food with a lively floorshow can be just the thing to perk up a business trip if you've been otherwise stuck in hotels and meeting rooms all week. The place is irrefutably a tourist trap with a capital 'T', but hey.... you should know what to expect. It's a bit pricey by local standards, but the show can be a lot of fun if you go with a group. Just be ready to be gently accosted by the waiters who will try to cajole you onto the stage to become part of the show.
The show itself is primarily a musical revue, with a variety of other acts thrown in. Some Kung Fu, some belly dancing, some snake handling.... there's a bit of everything. I'd never seen a male belly dancer before (and wouldn't feel the need to see one again!), but I gotta admit, the guy was pretty good at the craft.
So, if you are looking for a romantic dinner, skip this place for sure. But if you are looking for some loud fun, give Afunti a try.
The food was absoloutly fab! It was like awsome. I con't beleive the like show. I loved going here. The food is so like indescribable. It is a great place for a romantic dinner. But only in my opinion.
