This was our third visit and although we did enjoy the standard of food previously, on this occasion very disappointed. Prawns tasted strange and cheap in a glutinous sauce. Sea bass again strange consistency. Wanted to charge extra for a few more pancakes with a menu of £88/pp. all dishes were cold so the food did not stay warm. Very very average. Will not be back

Lovely birthday lunch for my 51st 🙂 Delicious dim sum to begin, prawn cheung fun, wasabi king prawns and amazing xiao long bao ❤️ Half a Beijing duck to follow just the best, so tasty and juicy, wonderful lychee panna cotta and min jiang pancakes with coffee to finish 😍 Honestly can’t recommend this place any more highly, best views, best service and best food! Thank you Min Jiang 👏

Min Jiang never disappoints. I reserve this place for lunches with girlfriends, lunch or dinner with family members. Authentic chinese cuisine, excellently executed and good value. Ambience is to die for looking out to Kensington Palace and the park. Very relaxed atmosphere, done of this highfalutin policy that you must vacate the table in 2 hours. Staff are helpful and friendly. Service is excellent.

Excellent food as usual. Service was very good and the ambience is great. It is our favourite Chinese restaurant in London. The only reason I do not give it 5 stars is that the quantities of food seem to be getting less.

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.

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.

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.
