Loved our meal - the only issue was not being able to relax over the food because while the restaurant offers reservations for 9.30 pm (there was no earlier availability so we accepted) it quickly tells you the the kitchen is closing which spoils the relaxation factor.

It’s probably…… no actually not probably, it’s the best Chinese we’ve ever had. The duck is out of this world, it was a form of art to watch the chef slice the duck, and the choice of dim sum was great, with amazing vista even on a misty day.

We love Min Jiang and always had a great experience there. Great food and service. However on this last visit, there were large tables that were not adhering to covid rules. Running around and walking up and down without masks on. We didn’t feel comfortable at all. The staff need to be more aware and remind their guests to wear masks and only take the off at the table.

The view shines more than the food. Dim sum dishes were small. The fried vermicelli noodles were too greasy.

It was a very hot day, the aircon was broken but staff did not inform us before arriving. We ordered a whole duck and the person who dropped pieces on the tray and floor

I probably had one of the best Chinese meals I can ever remember having at Min Jiang yesterday. It is a shame that set Dim Sum menus have been discontinued and a shame that Covid regulations have led to the removal of the bar seating area (with its plush red seats!) so that dining tables can be more widely spaced. Those things aside, my lunch was little short of perfect (well, I ordered a couple more Dim Sum in addition to Set Menu 2). The food was truly excellent trumped only by outstanding service and good advice from the sommelier. I wanted to go back today!

Went on a Monday for dim sum with a friend. The waiter who served us was very attentive and knowledgeable. The food was good and the view over Hyde Park was great. Lovely way of spending a lunchtime. Good to see that it had reopened and as good as before.

The duck is amazing! However I must say the chef didn’t peel the skin too well... AC wasn’t working when we had our meal that day so there are quite a few bugs and moths around us. Amazing view!

As a family, we often celebrate birthdays at Mon Jiang. Sadly in April 2020 we had to cancel my son’s 14th Birthday booking due to Covid. A year later we could now celebrate and it didn’t disappoint- stunning view of Hyde Park in full bloom, enthusiastic waitress suggesting your signature Mohito which was delicious and exquisite food. We relaxed and had a wonderful time. Thank you

Having dined at Min Jang many times over the last 15 years we were disappointed with the overall experience.
The whole ordering through to food being served was very rushed as if they wanted us in and out, yet we were first in and the restaurant capacity was plentiful throughout our dining experience.
The food was excellent as always but the whole whole experience was let down by lack lustre service a restaurant both cold in atmosphere & temperature.
Dark dull room with no warm mood lighting.
The service was attentive but totally focussed on the upswell.
Most of the staff were cold (except the barman that did manage light conversation)
We left early with last course as takeaway.
To sum it up everything and everyone seemed glum and miserable.

If not for the excellent food it would have been a disaster.

Thank you to the chef’s.
