Situated in London's exclusive Belgravia, Ken Lo's has long been a neighbourhood gem and continues to receive oustanding reviews. As well as impeccable service, the restaurant also offers an impressive wine list and is beautifully decorated with traditional Chinese style wood and fabrics for an atmospheric setting. For those in the know, the restaurant will also accomodate takeaway service.
This neighbourhood gem enjoys the patronage of well-heeled clientele from Belgravia and Knightsbridge. The restaurant's intimate and atmospheric interior is a perfect place to hold a business lunch or a celebratory dinner with friends.
Dinner: Monday-Saturday 6:00PM-11:00PM, Sunday 6:00PM-10:30PM
Good quality Chinese food. Pretty quiet at lunchtime. Kitchen closes 14:30 so not the place for a leisurely or late lunch!
Good food high quality meat (duck pork chicken dishes ) friendly waiters
Since the day it opened, Ken Lo's successors have kept to the extremely high standard he and Mr. Butt began. Memories of China never disappoints.
Pleasant location & interior design.
Sharp service from well-managed Italian team.
London West End standard of refined (largely) Cantonese cuisine.
Chinese tea selection needs to be significantly improved.
High, consistent quality of customer experience after four decades- & not a few changes of ownership.
We went for lunch with some clients who used to live in Singapore. Although it was a little quiet and I have always thought the décor a tad sterile, there was no doubting the quality of the food, wine and indeed the impeccable service. We always love the Capital Ribs (off the bone), Sesame Prawn Toast and a real highlight the Salt and Pepper Prawns. Crispy duck is a must and perfectly shredded. On the main course probably the standout was the Chicken with Cashews, although the Singapore Noodles are a must have as well.
No signs of any feeling of dehydration after the event, showing this is fresh cooked and not full of added salt.
It's not a cheap place, but it is refined and the food is excellent - there are private rooms at the front and they are great for bigger parties.
Good late night dining. Tasty food, but the wine list is mediocre and expensive.
It has a great selection of dim sum and other appetizers.
In addition I highly recommend the monkfish with ginger and spring onions
We have been previously to Memories when visiting London and very much wanted to return. We were not disappointed. Food was excellent and service was first rate.
One of the best if not the best Chinese restaurant in London. The crispy aromatic duck is to die for.
In general modern, well served very good food, a must when you visit London.
Have been going to this restaurant for over 20 years . one of my favourites whenever I visit London .
Excellent food !! Wish they could bring some new innovative items from time to time .
Just one complaint - I always feel "rushed" - the staff does not allow us enough time to relax .They are constantly -sort of "standing on your head" .
Nice meal. Very large portions so wasted a lot. Nice staff
The usual exceptional service and delicious food. Thank you
We were celebrating a birthday and had a private room. I had not requested this, so it was a lovely surprise. The food was amazing and the service very good. They were very attentive to all our needs and dietary requirements.
Food was superb as usual! will return soonest! Had forgotten how good your Singapore Noodles were - my guests loved the whole evening! Thank you
Been to the restaurant a couple of times and always enjoyed the food.
The service was amazing! The food was so delicious! I will be coming back again.
Really great service - staff v polite, attentive and made some great recommendations. This is one of the tastiest Chinese meals I’ve ever had.
Since Kenneth and Anne Lo started this restaurant we have been going and it NEVER disappoints
The Chef is top class and has retained all these years the high quality that is unbeatable
The evening has been enjoyed by all guests. A warm Welcome also al the excellent service will a third visit make sure.
And last but not least: the booking with "Open Table" works perfectly. Not so in my old Germany.
The food was bland, the staff tried to be friendly but one did not know what the other was doing. My experience was very average to below average.
Awesome as usual. Been coming for years. Best in the West End !!
Such a lovely, friendly restaurant. Delicious food and excellent service. We will definitely return.
I was a frequent client in the 1980s, this was my first visit in 30 years ... I was very disappointed and I imagine that Ken is looking down from his 'Seventh Heaven' feeling pretty grumpy with what they have done in his name !!!
Excellent meal and staff were very good and attentive
Very personal service (not many tables booked) but we had some trouble being understood so most orders/requests had to be made twice.
This was the second time I had visited with the same group of friends though one of the party has visited on previous occasions. The experience was good throughout from the initial welcome to the attentive table service, with the food excellent.
Very disappointed. Thought it was a classy place with the excellent food as befit the star chef. But not! Need a revamp of the cooking standard by the man himself.
Fabulous food and great service. Restaurant is not on the main drag but is definitely worth looking out for.
We have been eating here for years and have never been disappoined despite being a bit pricey
The menu offers a wide choice of dushes. The set meals are well organised and portions are generous. The quality of the food cannot be faulted nor an the attentivenress of the serving staff. I liked the qiet calm music free experence - just the right ambience for conversation
Visited twice during our stay in London pure and simply because the food, service and attention to detail was spot on. We like a good Chinese and this was really good full of flavour and the portion sizes were just right l highly recommend a visit you won't regret it. Top marks and well deserved
Service uaed to be excelent... long time ago
Waitress couldn’t explain some itens in the menu and didn’t even bother to ask another experienced colleague.
We are regulars at Ken Lo's Memories of China in Belgravia. We think it's the best Chinese restaurant in London. Parking is easy in the eveninga and at weekends. The food is amazing, the staff pleasant and it's a good venue to catch up with friends and family.
Excellent in every way. All dishes were well done upscale Chinese fare.
We had a wonderful evening. We were told about the restaurant by two Castine, Maine residents. They were spot on when they said it was the best Chinese Restaurant they had ever eaten in. We are happy we took their advice to celebrate our forty-seventh anniversary at Memories of China.
Wine a tad pricey — otherwise glorious.
One of my favorite restaurants anywhere. I worked on London for a number of years in the early 2000's and this was my favorite meal. Recently started back on international business travel and I have been craving their Sichuan duck. Made it to lunch on Friday and it was as good as I remembered!!
Good food but atmosphere a bit stuffy. Staff friendly enough but seemed to lack knowledge of a good menu.
Really enjoyed the food. Will definitely go back.
