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.
Their fruit sorbet was very good. Food was average.
Excellent array of choices, well delivered we hadn't been for a while, but will return at earliest opportunity.
Fabulous dining experience had by all in our party. The food was of an excellent standard and so very tasty. The staff were pleasant and accommodating and very attentive. Would recommend to all for all occasions.
Wonderful evening, friendly staff and very good food
I would definitely go back
My friend loves Chinese food and we like trying new places !This restaurant has excellent reviews and we thought why not!! We ordered so many dishes because we were hungry and were spoilt for choices! Service was great , the waitress were attentive and we cannot fault them! There were a variety of vegetarian dishes which you dont often get in most restaurants. The only feedback is some dishes seemed to be on the saltier side but other than that they were simply delicious.
This was an excellent meal. The service has vastly improved since we were last there a few months ago & I understand it now has new management which is why. Food was lovely, service was extremely good & attentive and the venue is comfortable & spacious.
The food is always excellent. The wine list is a tad expensive. I love this restaurant
Did not meet expectations. Food quality was mixed - chicken dumplings excellent, Peking Duck quite dry and missing the crispy skin which is so important with this dish. Not enough wraps for the duck, We asked for more which took forever and arrived cold. Monkfish was very good and chicken in clay pot we asked for 'off menu' was excellent (this dish is on the on-line menu but not on the restaurant menu). Overall service was very good but not a Chinese in sight, either amongst the staff or customers, so it did not have the feel and ambience of a Chinese restaurant. Value for money pretty good, considering the Belgravia location. Will choose Chinatown next time, or Mandarin Kitchen on Queensway.
-Served by kids
-Food was worst than you would have received from a takeaway place
-full of old people or tourists - no ambience
Nice welcome. Nice staff. Good service. Good food. Smooth. No hassle. Just like dinner should be. We had 2 children and a baby with us on a Saturday night and it didn’t phase anyone. Our waiter handled us like a champ.
Great food and service. This restaurant never disappoints and we have been coming here for 17 years!
Nice food but rushed, the restaurant wasn’t even busy! I’d say from sitting down to leaving took about 40mins, the food was literally 5 mins after ordering. And to pay nearly £100 for 2 mains, 2 sides and 2 drinks! Felt like I had my pants well and truly down!
I ordered the lamb clay pot with lemon grass but could hardly detect the flavour of lemon grass very disappointing especially as the lamb was tender
Slow service and tasteless food
Excellent food as usual !
Outstanding food and service, and very good value for the quality you get. Very good for catering to special allergies and dietary requirements. We had the seaweed, crispy chicken, crispy duck, egg fried rice and mangetout- all delicious and all gluten-free! Particularly recommend the crispy duck. The staff were professional, friendly and accommodating and gave us very good treatment for my boyfriend’s birthday. We will definitely be back soon!
The people were very nice. The food was very tasty.
Food nice enough, crispy duck and lettuce wraps were beautiful. Very tender beef. Monkfish under seasoned.
Sadly service spoiled the occasion - felt like a whirlwind. Drinks came half way through starters, as did the warm hand towels....
Felt like aim to serve as quickly as possible to free up table. Did ask for service charge to be removed and manager went further than that, which did partly redeem the experience.
Great standards and a few new twists. Will be back.
Not the best Chinese food and service can be slow at times. The squid was quite greasy.
It had been many years since I was last in Ken Lo's Memories of China even though I have now lived in the nearby area for several years, so I was looking forward to going back. However, overall this was rather a disappointing experience. The food was OK, certainly nothing to complain about but nothing very exciting either (and we had some dishes marked as the restaurant's speciality). Sadly the service was a real let-down - we had to wait an age before getting menus and for attention at other times. When food was brought it was more-or-less thrown down on the table without even telling us what each dish was. (Of course sometimes it's obvious, but sometimes it's not and it may be important, such as when the prawn dumplings and vegetable dumplings look very similar and there is a vegetarian in the party). And a completely incorrect dessert order was delivered. The restaurant was quite busy but certainly not full, so there was really no excuse for this level of service. From what we saw sitting near the kitchen entrance, there was also some tension between the kitchen and the waiting staff. Sadly we won't be rushing back.
Very disappointing and unremarkable meal. Crispy duck was dry and stringy, beef was tough in fact the entire meal was dreadful. I would have had better from a supermarket ready meal.
We spent dinner with our family (2 adults and 2 children), which consisted of starters, soup and a selection of main courses. Starters of smoked chicken, prawn toasts, soft shell crab and seaweed were high quality, but the Hot & Sour soup was disappointing, it seemed to lack a final punch or ingredient. Mains of Kung Po Prawn, lemon chicken, Singapore noodles were OK but the Crispy Shredded beef was also disappointing and a little soggy, we've had much better elsewhere. The chocolate ice cream was voted the best tasted in a very long time. So some excellent food mixed with not so good made this an OK meal and @ nearly £50 a head incl. service (no wine, just soft drinks), it wasn't great value for money.
Very nice food, good wine selection with attentive staff. Great place to spend a pleasant evening in a relaxed atmosphere. The Cantonese Ribs were to die for!
Great service great food always our safety go to restaurant
This place has gone down hill. I always looked forward to very good good and faultless service. Not any more.
The cooking and service in Memories of China are always excellent. Dishes are brought out at exacty the right moment, served with grace. Waiters are friendly and attentive. If you like well prepared Chinese food in a great ambience this is the one for you
The decor and ambiance are lovely. Service outstanding. Food was only ok. It wasn’t bad— just unmemorable.
Wonderful service, amazing food. We will be dining at Ken Lo’s again soon.
We go to ken Lo's on a fairly regular basis and it never disappoints - always good food and the service is also fairly consistent. We love it!
