Very disappointing experience. After waiting one hour, was told there was a problem in the kitchen and therefore orders were delayed. Not even the starters were served. However, throughout the entire time, many takeaway meals were coming out of the kitchen for home delivery. Furthermore, other tables were being served, even ones that ordered after mine. I don’t understand how restaurants prioritise takeaway orders over customers waiting at the restaurant for a meal. Wouldn’t recommend this place.

An amazing restaurant for NYE. Three friends & I had dinner here on New Year’s Eve, enjoyed fantastic food and drinks then walked to see the fireworks from primrose hill at midnight. The staff were so friendly and went well above & beyond what we expected. I would highly recommend to anyone!

Despite being drawn to the fact it’s a restaurant floating in Regent Canal, the food is actually delicious and the portions are perfect.

This is a lovely atmospheric place for a special occasion, being on the canal and with the Chinese lamps. The staff are welcoming and warm, the food delicious and good quality for which prices are not too bad, and generally there is a feelgood factor and international spirit. We really enjoyed our birthday evening though disappointed that Open Table did not seem to have made the booking with the restaurant and they had no record...so we didn't get the birthday treatment - which we had forewarned!

We don't live far and we decided to try it. The service is good and they try to please you. However the major setback was the food. The first appetizer we ordered was vegetarian dim sum and they came boiling on the outside and frozen on the inside. Obviously they were very embarrassed. The rest of the food was oily. Shame.

The soft noodles with beef was amazing but not on the menu. Make sure to order it. The fried duck is one of the best in London.

It was the staff who made our visit great, they couldn't do enough for us and let us decorate the table for a friends 30th which was greatly appreciated. The food was very tasty if slightly expensive but would definitely recommend as a special treat/birthday venue. Thanks for all your help!

The service was terrible, they got wrong 2 dishes out of 3. The AC was on 14. We had to wait at least 30 minutes between one dish and another. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone, such a waste of potential.

It was our first time at this restaurant. The service was outstanding. We arrived too early, was greeted by a lovely lady who advised it wasn’t an issue. We were seated straight away and given the drinks menu. They offer a good selection of wines, Prosecco (which we went for) champagne, spirits (we also had a couple of whisky’s for him and Cognac for myself to end the night) and cocktails. The service from our waitress was exceptional. She always refilled our glass, made sure we were okay and gave us her opinion on our choice of food which we needed and appreciated. The restaurant, surroundings and location made our experience one to remember. Another plus point was the parking which wasn’t an issue. Thank you for a great night. We’ll be back soon.

Nice food, mains were delicious. Restaurant rather tired and dated. Swift service- the duck pancakes came immediately so must be cooked beforehand. Not somewhere you’d linger. Wines rather pricey-especially with 12.5% on top.

We ordered the crispy chilli beef which had no beef but fried batter that was soaked in syrup and very sweet. The salmon was a tiny piece of salmon and just had teriyaki sauce poured over it. No flavour whatsoever. Was extremely disappointed as it was expensive and the food was below average. I still left hungry and my stomach was hurting that same evening after my food and I felt very sick the whole night.

It was a nice experience dining on the boat but we will not return. The food was fine but it felt expensive compared to what we pay in china town for the same quality, especially a fruit juice for the children at nearly £5 each. My husband also had a small fly in both his lagers.

Horrible smell.
Rushed us to eat even though our booking was made for 10:30
I’m not even sure the food was fresh.
Never again

Dear Jason Thank you so much for your visit last Sunday. Firstly, we can assure you that the bad smell you experienced got nothing to do with our food but emanated from the canal water which we're currently working with the Authority to resolve by dredging the area and we try to do it asap. Secondly, we're sincerely sorry to make you feel that our service is rush. To find more info about our opening hours please kindly go to our official website: fengshang.co.uk Feng Shang Princess

Food was not great, beef was full of fat and gristle and had to send it back. Was overcharged on bill for a whiskey I never had as waitress got this confused with an aperitif but this was rectified. Staff were courteous and helpful.
