    This restaurant had closed for business but OpenTable took our booking regardless. We arrived for a special occasion - a 30th birthday dinner - to find the doors locked, the restaurant lights out and a note taped to the door...

    Entire restaurant has been closed down / eviction notice on front door. Bookings had been taken and no notice of this was given. Mothers’ Day and impossible to get in elsewhere. Livid!

    Apparently the restaurant has closed - we received an email from the restaurant saying so much, but a different one from OpenTable. It would be good to clarify whether the restaurant is still operating on OpenTable.

    We had been here many times in the previous years and had a lovely Chelsea evening of dim sum/ dumplings. Super disappointed tonight to find the menu has been shortened to remove 90% of the dim sum that is displayed on their website. There was no steamed dim sums and only 3 or 4 fried dim sums which is unbelievable as this is a dim sum restaurant. Instead they had replaced the traditional menu with Japanese options. There are many good Japanese restaurant in the area already, I come to bo lang for their dim sum variety. Bring them back please that was the main reason for a lot of people to visit bo lang. There are already a lot of Japanese restaurants that serve good sushi. I will not come to Bo Lang to have japanese food. Your traditional menu that is on your website is what we want to expect by coming to Bo Lang.

    Food was delicious and the staff were lovely and knowledgable regarding the food and drinks menu! Only issue was that we were sitting near the front of the restaurant and the customers coming in and out consistently left the door open and it was a very cold evening.

    The "dumpling " chef has either left or retired or been sacked. ? No dumplings . Utter disappointment. The fabric on the chairs was dirty. Music , poor taste and far too loud. Will not be returning.

    There was little of the menu available. You do not mix Japanese with Chinese cuisine together. The heart of what made Bo Lang special is gone. Very big disappointment as this was our family favourite.

    Was not told about a change of menu on New Years when booking, because apparently they ran out of food the day before. Don’t really find that as a good enough excuse. Have been many times and this is the first time I was let down.

    Booked last minute for a quick catch up dinner. The food was nice. Missed out on the dim-sum which was the reason I booked this restaurant. The other options were nice. No complaints. Cocktails we tried were delicious! Staff was very friendly and helpful.

    I’ve been a huge fan of Bo Láng since I first went there 3 years ago - excellent Dim Sum!!! Also the Beijing style duck has been very delicious. Starting in October this year, however, they changed the menu - variety of Dim Sum was sacrificed for Sushi/Maki/Nigiri options. There are already so many options for Sushi & Co in London, while Dim Sum of such quality can’t be found easily. The reduction of variety (especially no more of the excellent Szichuan style ones) and the fact that Shanghai dumplings were not available that night, made it a less pleasant experience. It’s a pity and we’ll have to start looking for other Dim Sum restaurants.
