The experience at Min Jiang was exceptional, service from staff beyond excellent. Food and ambience outstanding. I can’t find a single thing which was disappointing. Thank you for an amazing day.

Deeply disappointing after the generally good reviews. Absolutely miserable service (literally not a single smile despite much encouragement). Missed one of the main dishes entirely “pressed wrong button”.

Distinctly average food (Dim Sum actually quite poor, totally flavourless cheung fun).

Absolutely do not recommend; far better places with far better value elsewhere in London.

Worth to order their signature Duck.
We ordered half duck for 2.
It was very tasty and good potion to order some other stuff.
Lovely view from 10th floor at the hotel.

Min Jiang has a lovely setting, it is a beautiful restaurant with some great views. When arriving at this booking I tried to discreetly tell the front of of staff that I had brought a cake as we were celebrating a birthday (this is something I had already told the restaurant). The front of staff then went on to loudly tell all of us that there’s a £5 per person additional charge for external foods being brought in. It was just completely awkward, the birthday girl was standing right there we were all awkwardly shuffling and the man just proceeded to go on and on about this fee and no cakes allowed (prior to this the birthday girl didn’t even realise we had brought a cake). It went on so long that I had to abruptly interrupt the gentleman to say we will talk about this later and could we just be seated.

The menu is great and the food was mostly delicious. But the atmosphere and staff are overly serious, formal and make you feel uncomfortable. Even when they did eventually bring the cake out they whispered happy birthday. It felt like I was eating dinner in a library.

Even though the food was good, it was nothing extraordinary and for the price there are much better Chinese restaurants in London with a much more comfortable and welcoming atmosphere.

I have eaten in a number of famous, delicious and truly amazing restaurants in London and I don’t appreciate being made to feel like I don’t belong or feeling awkward when I am having a dinner that I am more than prepared to pay for.

Very beautiful restaurant at the top floor of the hotel, decor was modern, we got a nice table with a beautiful night view of London. Lots of choices and its quite a big menu suitable for normal and vegetarian dietary requirements. Service was efficient. A little pricey but its ok for special occasion.

Pity it is not possible to find authentic Peking style Peking duck in London. What we have here is basically Cantonese roast duck carved and served Peking duck style. The difference? Authentic Peking duck, the skin is crispy because it is separated from the meat by blowing air into the duck before roasting. Cantonese roast duck is air dried for a few hours before being roasted. The skin is not crispy as it is still attached to the meat. Not quite the same, not quite as good.

Another outstanding Lunar New Year family lunch at Min Jiang in London.
The beautiful open view east over the parks and the London skyline from the 10th floor is magnificent, and never fails to please. The attentive service, relaxed luxury and delicious food are a great start to the new year. Thank you again to my favourite London restaurant!

Food was very tasty although we found the menu slightly limited. Service was quick and professional although not very friendly. The view was good but we felt the restaurant tables were a little too close together and the noise was a bit too much for me. Overall we felt the meal was slightly overpriced.

I have been to Min Jiang several times in the past and unfortunately sitting through our meal having pre ordered the duck, I was presented the duck which was very fatty which to my distaste didn’t impress me, the seafood noodle with chicken and oyster sauce was also presented very over plated looked a mess and overall I was disappointed I would of been more happy with the lettuce wraps as a full main rather than the duck pancakes. If your looking for Peking duck I would always now go back to my go too which is China Tang in the Dorchester hotel there duck is far more superior and the atmosphere is much more what you pay for there.

Food impeccable as always and layout and atmosphere is elegant and relaxing. Not for the first time however have we noticed a disappointing service. We had to wait long enough for our pancakes for the Peking duck to have become Luke-warm. Perhaps because it was early before prime time but it looked as if too few staff were around or there was a lack of coordination.

Food is really authentic and special this time however a small issue with the beans and mince chicken , which tasted off and rancid.the plate was immediately taken of the bill. Well done Min Jang for that quick reaction.
We commend also Lee Wong as an outstanding waitress and long time employee with the restaurant, she makes us feel welcome every time.

We have been to Min Jiang many times before. It have in the past always provided good food and service. This time I felt the food wasn't as good as it had been on our previous visit, still good, but not the high quality food I have been used to at Min Jiang. Most disappointing was the mango pomelo and sago dessert, it tasted like something oily/fatty had been added that shouldn't be in it. I hope this was just a one off bad day in the kitchen, and that the food will be back to normal standard when I return.

Thoroughly disappointing experience!!

I have been to Ming Jiang often as a couple and always enjoy the duck. This occasion I went with my 1yr old son and albeit kids can be a little noisy and messier. However, I did not expect to receive constant evil looks from the service staff and zero service from them. Even when I complained to the waiter serving my table about another service staff I received no apology or action. If they don’t welcome children, they should specify a no child policy or train their staff better!
