Had the beef ho fun with a couple of dim sum delights. I am quite a regular now as I work nearby, a couple of blocks away. The restaurant manager was kind enough to grant me a bit of a loyalty discount. All the more reason to visit again.

Reheated spring rolls, inedible prawns in the frie rice (more thai cooked than chinese) and sweet and sour sauce with excessive, and not a litlle, vinegar (although the pork was well cooked). And a 14% discretional service charge!!. Too little for too much money when in he City are plenty of good chinese restaurants for this price (and without this abusive service charge).

This time around I tried the chilli Ma Po tofu with pork mince meat - very nicely cooked and served in a deep bowl dish to keep the contents warm for longer. Once again, the staff were attentive and friendly.

Pretty bad service I just faced:
I walked in the other day for dinner, and told the lady in the reception I had a reservation, and went quickly to the men’s room.
Came back to the reception there, where they lady in the front desk was talking to another couple who just walked in.
I kept just standing by the reception, waiting to be seated, since I came before, but the lady just ignored me and then sat the couple who came after me.
When she finally came to me, I mentioned that I came before the couple.
She mentioned that I went to the toilet but I said that I finished and was waiting by the reception.
Kept arguing etc, and said something like “its ok if I seat you later on”.
It's ok for her to seat me later on, if I, who came before the couple, say so. She is not in a position to say what's ok, in this respect.
Argued and argued with a smily face (which doesn’t make it better), and I think it would help the restaurant, if they had someone less argumentative on front line. First impression is the last impression after all.
Other than that, a waiter which was hanging around where we sat for dinner, didn’t really understand english it seems, when we asked for things.
I have no problems with people who don’t understand english, but they shouldn’t be serving food in a central london restaurant where we are paying premium prices.
All waiters seem to be generally pretty edgy, and when i just thought it was just me who felt this way, my friend, who I brought there on another day, mentioned the same fact, that quality of service there has gone done.
On the whole, pretty bad service, right from the beginning.
Real shame since I am a regular there, and need to find another chinese restaurant to go to.

A lovely dim sum lunch which always has one drooling over the table. Love the cuttlefish fish cakes and this time round I had kept back a little room for desserts - the freshly steamed salted egg buns.

Restaurant was very crowded and staff over-worked. We were sent to a table at the back of the restaurant which is in the lobby of an office building. It was completely souless like dining in the middle of a deserted Heathrow concourse. Food was good and service reasonable given the very crowded restaurant inside. Normally we have been very pleased with Bright Courtyard but not this time.

The food was pretty good, but do much more expensive than it’s obvious competitor Royal China. Huge king prawns in salt and pepper were delicious, as were the mixed vegetables, super fresh and crunchy. The dick was juicy but somewhat under seasoned, and the beef strips were more batter than beef and the sweet sauce more spicy than anticipated. So a good meal, helpful staff, but not reaching the heights you would expect at these prices. Also it shouldn’t come as a surprise given the name, but the room was too bright and soulless for my liking, fine day time but not at night.

Was very excited to try this restaurant because I had read the reviews and thought that the food would be amazing. It was really expensive and the food was very average and below most chinatown restaurants. The service was lovely and they were very nice but I just would go elsewhere because the food was so disappointing
