First class dishes, beautifully presented with a wonderful array of interesting flavours. This is one of the very finest Chinese restaurants I have experienced. On top of that, there are stunning views over Hyde Park and London from its 10th floor location. Expensive but worth every penny and well worth a visit.

We love this restaurant and visit whenever we are in London. We used to know the sommelier, Kenny, very well. Now he is gone and we found most of the current staff rather cold, humorless and curt. Food was still excellent but staff has lost its soul and finesse. It makes the experience more like a cheap diner than a wonderful restaurant. Too bad.

We waited a long time for our aperitifs to arrive after reminding staff a couple of times. This made us a bit concerned about how the rest of the ordering would proceed. However things improved thereafter. The place was very noisy with some young people talking very loudly and it was quite echoey in the room which didn’t help - maybe they need to look at some kind of sound dampening.

Booked this for a special family celebration with our sons aged 15 and 17. We were all very impressed with the service, food, ambience and the views of Kensington Palace and across the park to the cityscape of the shard. the restaurant and bar area are well laid out with plenty of room - and very nicely designed in a contemporary chinese style. We will most definitely be back.

I had booked this restaurant for our anniversary dinner, I had also called the restaurant in advance and stated it was a very special evening and requested a table with a best view.

We arrived to be greeted and taken to a table at the far end of the restaurant, which wasn't what I had hoped or discussed,

We ordered cocktails which were great,followed by a bottle of champagne with our meal, sadly this wasn't chilled long enough. and wasn't the correct servicing temperature till after our second course

The food was definitely superb, the only downside was they didn't cater for our anniversary as we had pre-arranged and confirmed by telephone, which meant it was just like a normal night out... albeit a very expensive one.

Weekday lunch with friend. fabulous view by the window. Service was good.

We had half duck with three dim sums and tea. Came to a very reasonable £33 each.

The environment was quiet so we could hear each other. The Xiang long bao was one of the best I had in London. The buns were quite small though.

The food was very average and definitely not worth the price. There are at least half a dozen places in Chinatown that does better dim sum for a third of the price (before taking into account the serving size which is about half here in Min Jiang). The Peking duck was better than the dim sum. However still oily, not crispy enough and nothing like the duck I had in China. But for London, this is probably one of the best I’ve had. At least the duck pancakes were handmade and not paper-like. There was a small happy birthday petite four presented at the end of our meal which was a nice touch. The service was friendly but difficult to get any attention when we needed. The view was the best part especially on a beautiful summer afternoon.
