Nice quiet setting sat next to the window. Not your usual Chinese restaurant. Friendly attentive staff. Liked the menu sheets to select our order. Food and drinks slightly pricey but good quality. Would recommend a visit

Nice restaurant in the heart of busy Soho. Lovely staff. Limited selection of dim sums after 5 pm but alternative available. Quite expensive.

It is expensive for what it is.
We were sat in a cave and it was very dark. I don’t recommend this restaurant.
The only positive point is the dumplings’ color

Go somewhere else! Zero atmosphere, very limited menu. Despite reading that buns were their speciality, there were hardly any on the menu and they were not even tasty. Service wasn't good, didn't even get any dipping sauces so had to get up and get thdm off the bar ourselves. Had to ask them twice to bring our drinks, not even any chinese tea on offer. It was also freezing in there.
Overall a waste of time and money as it was also very expensive for what we got. Better off going to the fridge in the supermarket and buying some buns to take home!

I think if we had been seated upstairs out overall experience would have been better. The restaurant is a bit cramped but none the less the food was outstanding and the service was good

Dumplings were not too bad but they got almost instantly cold because of the air conditioning. Prawn Skewers were cheap quality and expensive (15£ for 6 burned prawns). Ordered vinegar dumplings and the vinegar took probably half an hour to arrive after the dumplings. The ordering system is not very sustainable as they use (plastic) paper sheets on which you must tick boxes. An app would definitely work better.
Service is a bit confused, the music is loud and there was not enough distancing between the tables. Dumplings were ok

A quick stop here before some drinks in Soho ... dumplings, house special rice and Szechuan sweet sour chicken with two bottles of cider incl. service charge £5

Food very good but, importantly, service and friendliness of staff absolutely spot on! Would definitely go back

Male waiter extremely rude / sarcastic / condescending. Everything was too much trouble for him. Felt like he was doing us a favour for the bare minimum. Really unsettled the atmosphere of our birthday celebration…
The food is also overpriced for the size of portions. Have eaten better in Soho too.
Will not be returning.

Booked via Opentable in the morning, turned up and the staff didn’t seem to be aware of our booking. However we were still given a table. Prices quite high for portion sizes but food all came out relatively quickly and was delicious!

Food was amazing. We ordered four platters of dimsums and a portion of Dan Dan noodles. Didn't order any alcohol or beverages.
The dimsums took nearly 50 mins to arrive, noodles were much faster.
The food was excellent.
Ideal place to go for a casual laid-back lunch when you have some time on your hands. Averaged to about 22gbp per head.

We waited an hour before our drinks finally arrived, let alone the food. The value for money was very poor (expensive and small portions) and the food was just okay. They even sell their beer in half pints for £5. Overall, they’re really making high margins on their customers.

Food delicious, freshly prepared, lovely dim sum. Dishes generally quite small: My 11 year old daughter ate two "main courses" of chicken and rice. Veg very fresh: bok choi was amazingly tasty and zingy. Noodle dishes large and tasty.

Special fried veg rice was really unexciting and overpriced- just rice and a bit of carrot and broccoli. Poor.

I really love the food but portions are small. They used to be much, much bigger - especially the Bao’s and steamed dumplings. We had to wait a long time for the food to arrive but the service was incredible. Our waiter was so kind and attentive. It was my boyfriend’s birthday and they even gave us a free cocktail to celebrate. As I said, very kind staff 😊

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.
