Thursday March 1st 2007 was a momentous occasion for the Jewish Community of Beijing! The opening of the first ever KOSHER restaurant in Beijing!

A few very brave souls have invested a lot of money, effort, time and energy to bring the community and our visitors the opportunity of eating Kosher out in Beijing!

The partners of the restaurant have named it "Dini's" in thanks to Chabad of Beijing and Dini Freundlich for being the only place till now that kosher meals were available in Beijing!

A delicious menu for adults and kids, a beautiful setting and the ability to eat kosher out in Beijing is now a reality!

The restaurant is a meat facility and under the kosher supervision of Rabbi Shimon Freundlich - Director Chabad Beijing.

How do I know if something Kosher?


Certain foods, like fresh fruit, do not need a hechsher (a symbol indicating that a mashgiach (kosher supervisor) approved a product as kosher certified) and many of these products are available in Beijing at both local and western grocery stores.

Other products have a hechsher on the label or are listed on the databases that are maintained by the various hashgacha (kosher supervising) companies.

In Beijing, certain products, such as meat and select breads are kosher under the supervision of Chabad Beijing. Please read the rest of this section for more details.
