Chinese
Located in the heart of London's bustling Chinatown district, Plum Valley is a sleek Cantonese restaurant that stands out along Gerrard Street for its minimalist style and smart wooden, slate and stone interior. Perfect for business lunches, pre-theatre meals and post-sightseeing snacks, Plum Valley Chinese restaurant is conveniently located near Piccadilly Circus and the West End without being touristy, and the restaurant boasts its own conference facilities well suited for private events and meetings. Dumpling lovers will go gaga for the scallop dumpling, whisker black cod roll, and we also recommend the pillowy cream custard bun, Mongolian fillet steak, and the grilled sea bass with ginger and spring onion. Or just take your waiter's advice and make a survey of the sublime dim sum or the excellent a la carte. Smart enough for dates, yet friendly to groups, Plum Valley is a great must-try restaurant in Chinatown.

    The food was amazing, especially crispy mock chicken, claypot chicken and beef rendang. We had a theatre booking so probably should have booked appetisers and mains to all come at once! But staff were lovely and we very much enjoyed the experience.

    A very good extensive menu. Something for our vegetarian family as well as the usual favourites for old school lovers of Chinese food. Staff seemed busy and hurried arther than friendly, but service was mostly efficient. I'd definitely go again.

    There were 4 of us and our main courses all came out at different times. 2 of us had our rice served to the table but the accompanying dishes arrived 10 minutes later so the rice was getting cold. I asked for no tofu in my main dish and was told this was fine but then the dish arrived full of tofu. Starters were lovely. Service was indifferent.

    First seated right at the back in the dark, despite having booked ahead. Then when a table became free we asked to move forward a bit. Waiters were all very grumpy and quite hard to flag down Range of menus (dim sum, picture menu, full menu) at first confusing and just one of each between the four of us. But food was good - BBQ pork, Indonesian prawns with fried patties, duck in plum sauce, soft shell crab, prawn and seaweed croquettes, rainbow dumplings, chilli tofu, special rice, mushroom dumplings, veggie spring rolls At £229 for 4 (3 bottles of wine) rather pricey. Nearby table was very noisy at first. No real atmosphere to the place.

    Plum Valley was new to me having eaten in and around Soho for decades. There were new and different dishes to try, loved the decor! Staff were extremely efficient but also friendly. My friend and I sat upstairs at lunchtime on a Saturday and it felt calm and quite quiet ( although most tables were taken ) and we were unrushed. We had some unusual cod ‘nests’ served with a delicious mango sauce - has to be tried ! We paid just under £50 per head but that included a whole bottle of a lovely light rosé…..

    The picture on the internet are misleading - our little table was downstairs by the toilets. The service wasn‘t friendly either. The Food didn‘t taste good at all. At the end we felt as if they wanted to get rid of us so that they could welcome the next guests. The price/performance ratio is not right at all. We would never go there again!

    We had a nice time but there was a pretty shock event where my 8 year old daughter found a metal staple, open, with both sharp prongs out, in her seaweed. On telling the manager, she seems pretty relaxed about it all and showed no real care at all. Had my daughter not seen it and swallowed the staple, she could have done some real damage. We were offered nothing in the way of compensation and I didn’t make a scene as we had kids with us so wouldn’t have been appropriate. Had we been without them, I would have demanded the meal be complimentary. Clearly the manager didn’t have the same problem with finding sharp bits of metal in food she selling!

    Excellent food choice and you don’t feel cramped in like other restaurants in China Town. You may have to queue, especially on Saturday but it’s worth it. The staff are very friendly and helpful when trying to choose from the menu - try something new ! Highly recommend 😊

    Good was very tasty and fresh. Ambience is more plastic, high pressure, turn over the table. But that’s why you get for relatively inexpensive Chinese food in Chinatown.

    After being huge fans of Plum Valley, it's quite difficult to express the depth of our disappointment. They do appear to have become quite complacent in their overall approach. The dining room was cold and that was exacerbated by their desire to keep the front door open. The plates weren't warmed and the food was served lukewarm at best. We were then rushed to vacate the table that was being cleaned before we had even put our coats on. The wine, however, was excellent. If you're looking for a little more than average and mediocre this isn't the place for you. We won't be going back - there has to be better for the money.
