You may go to Bai Ye Xuan Halal Restaurant at No. 2, Xiushui, Dongdaqiao Road. The address in pinyin is Dong Da Qiao Lu, Xiu Shui Er Hao. From the hotel, you can walk north for about 100 yards, and cross the road. Then, walk north along Dongdaqiao Road for about 500 yards to it.

If wanting to taste the authetic indian food, I'm afraid there is no one within walking distance. The closest one I know is around 2.5km away named Mirch Masala which is at 6th, Silk Market, on no. 8, East Xiushui Street. You can take a taxi to reach. If you are ok with the curry food, the Sixteen Curry can be a choice, which is only 1km away from the railway station. It is on 5F, New World Department Store, close to Chongwenmen metro station.
Just make your own decision!
