As usual the food was superb, the service was excellent, and the atmosphere pleasant. It was Sunday mid-day and quiet which is what we were looking for in these pandemic times.

the staff and atmosphere is lovely but the food is really exceptional ! the menu isn’t overwhelmingly extensive and every dish is bursting with fresh, tasty and authentic flavours.
highly recommend the house made szechuan chilli oli if you want to give your meal an extra kick.
easily one of my favourite restaurants in london

Food disappointingly average, not much better than an average takeaway (although without the oiliness and saltiness as this was a sit-down restaurant). The vegetarian dumplings were a disappointment, my favourite was the decent “fish fragrant” aubergine. The service was smooth and food came incredibly fast. The place did have some nice seats upstairs, but unfortunately we were sat in the basement.

Must try: wonton in chilli oil with prawns
This is a very good restaurant for dumplings. I personally come here for this and dim sum (when they used to have them) and they are simply delicious.
I would also recommend their cold sake.

Food was tasty, menu isn’t as large as you might expect - it’s a dumpling place so less other dishes. Dumplings are very good, no fried ones though. salt & pepper squid really good.

Good food but the service was very poor.
We arrived (admittedly 5 mins late) to our 8:30pm booking to find they had already given our table away. We had to wait 10/15 mins for another.

With current restrictions, I understand the need to be efficient with ordering to get everyone out by 10pm, but the staff were very rude, forcing us to order before barely sitting down, and appearing to make us pay the bill before half our food had turned up. Only then did we realise that a number of things we’d ordered were not actually being made, and they then refused to make them due to time restrictions.

The food that did arrive was good but the overall experience was not.

Ended up getting some salt n pepper chips from the Chinese in Clapham South...highlight of the night.

Without doubt, the food is nice, very flavoursome. But the price for a small portion of noodles set in a big bowl just for photogenic purposes, small dumplings and buns are way excessive. This is a restaurant clearly catered for western tastes in regards to decor and the use of colourful flour mixture to attract Instagramers and food vloggers. For buns and dumplings, just go to any other established restaurants in Chinatown for half the price or more. You might not get the decor and prettiness for your cameras to devour. But you'll still get the flavours with cash left over for a couple of bubble teas and beers afterwards.
