Food was amazing however staff failed to tell us that you had to preorder the duck, which was why we went there for my husband birthday in the first place. I don't if it was because we booked through open table but we never got this information. They could also have told us when we arrived but they failed to do so, therefore they had run out of duck. The rest of the food was very nice and we enjoyed it but it was very disappointing not to be able to have what we wanted. The waiters were correct.

Min Jiang is a wonderful restaurant situated on the 10th floor of the Kensington Garden hotel. The food is superb, the staff are very attentive, and the views are amazing. We had one of the fixed price lunches which was lovely, but if you want to splash out the main menu is very extensive. One of the best restaurants we have ever visited and we will be back.

Went with elderly parents and small children. The food is extremely authentic, especially the roast duck. Very good service and fantastic view over Hyde Park.

The meal in itself was rather good overall in terms of quality, albeit slightly pricey for the Dim Sum. Unfortunately we were seated at the worst table in the restaurant right next to the service stand where all the plates and waiters were convening and people were walking back and forth around us. I do understand not everyone can be seated near the windows but one of the main attractions of the restaurant is the view and despite the restaurant not being at full capacity, we were seated away from the view and in the middle of traffic.

I've often recommended Min Jiang to colleagues and friends but this experience was below the standard I was expecting.

Delicate and tasty dim sum with an amazingly view of Kensington Palace and Garden. Each bite is heavenly. Of course the Peking Duck is a must. Better than that you will get in Beijing. Attentive service is a plus!

The last visit to Min Jiang was great as usual. This is still my favourite Chinese restaurant in town. If I can give one criticism after ordering the Beijing duck (served initially - and as usual - in crispy skin slices and pancakes): it was the soup at the end with the duck bones that didn't go down well with me. The broth tasted great... but the bones (with tiny pieces of duck meat on it) made me lose my appetite. I couldn't take the second offer to eat the rest of the Beijing duck in a fried rice because I already ordered another fried rice dish to eat. Perhaps remove the bones in the soup and use only the meat next time? I'm sure visually it will look much better and we don't need to remove bones from our teeth.

Before the roast duck served, one of the waiters asked us what to do with the remaining roast duck. First, he did not explain what was going on. Second, I said that I want soup and fried rice. He only got fried rice in the end. Ask him, he said that there is only one kind of meal. But before he clearly said that it was a duck and two. Unpleasant service experience. But the roast duck tastes good.

A nice restaurant with a beautiful view.

I ordered 5 dishes and the I would say the quality was average, the best one in my mind is the diced beef with pepper. But the others, I will give them an ‘acceptable’.

The meal was definitely overpriced and if you are going on a date, or any special occasion, please ensure you pre-book the Beijing/Peking roasted duck in advance, otherwise it is not likely to be available and I shall say the roasted duck is perhaps the only reason why I went there.

It is the most disappointing book I’ve ever made through OpenTable.

We looked up restaurants in Kensington while we were visiting the palace and stumbled upon Min Jiang. Such a great atmosphere with a wonderful view. Also really really great food. Would definitely recommend to anybody, and will be making another visit when I'm in London next.

We visited Min Jiang for lunch to celebrate by daughters DofE Gold award presentation at Buckingham Palace along with my wife's birthday and absolutely everything was perfect and amazing. They even got presented with special deserts with congratulations and happy birthday on.
It was at the higher end of the price scale but well worth the money and the view is also very nice.
Would recommend.

I’m always sorry to write a bad review but we have to be honest! The ambiance was very beautiful but as we were seated unfortunately our waitress was not helpful and you couldn’t understand what she was saying. We had a mixture of dim sum which was bland,a fried soft shell crab appetizer which was old burnt and smelt of old garlic. I only ate a small piece and felt sick all night.
The Peking duck was cooked well but the pancakes were cold and they served you very small plates of spring onion and cucumber. Not at all what I was expecting. Disappointing meal.
