Excellent as always! Thank you for another great evening!
Such great service and great quality of food. They have updated the menu to givde more mouth watering optons. Whatever you order from the menu, gauranteed to be of the highest quality in terms of taste and flavour!
My husband and I just left the Chinese Cricket Club. One local friend recommended me there. I reserved a table for 22:15. Arrived there just in time. The lady who received us said we would have only 5 minutes to order since the restaurant closes at 22:30. We went to the table. Then the manager came to our table and said exactly the same thing. But in a very very very rude and ironic way. I asked him why they accepted reservations for 22:15 since we would only have 5 minutes to order. Again, in a very rude and not polite way, the manager said “you have 5 minutes”. After that, did not look at us. Left the knife and fork in our table, we said thank you, he kept quite. Then when we left, we said thank you and good bye, and he kept his back to us. Unbelievable. Amazing how a restaurant which is located in a hotel, full of tourists, receives people like that. This is just not acceptable. We only paid the service (which was automatically charged) because of the lady who received us. Again, a restaurant in a worldwide city like London, located in a hotel. In any country in the world, giving your back when a customer thanks you, is not acceptable.
Very good Asian food. We had difficulty finding the restaurant. They should mention they are within the Crowne Plaza Hotel. They also had a wonderful wine pairing.
We had a table at the end which was pleasantly quiet and private. The food was good and well presented but the service, although very friendly and helpful, was rather slow. If you're in need of a quick /business lunch this might not fit the bill, but for a relaxed dinner with friends this might be ok. There was a selection of plant based dishes for the main - strangely no tofu dishes - and one choice for starters (a nice mushroom / veg mix) and the ubiquitous spring rolls.
Good quality food & excellent service that’s such a joy to find nowadays, it’s a real treat to visit the Chinese cricket club & would recommend it if you want authentic Chinese food :)
Occasionally the kitchen has an off night, but having dined here many times, I find the food to be generally high quality and consistent. NOT the typical fare you get in Chinatown. The servers are good and on top of their job, but when they get busy they can get a bit stretched. Overall though, this is a great choice for Chinese in an unexpected location.
The only complaint I have with the food is that it was not very hot and went cold pretty quickly otherwise I had a lovely time.
This was a typical hotel restaurant. Not a huge amount of noise or atmosphere, but good food and a very nice level of service. The main issue was that although the food was good, similar quality food would be a lot cheaper if bought from a non-hotel Chinese restaurant. The presentation was styalised somewhat for the visual aspect, but it didn't add to the experience at all.
Having been to many high end chinese restaurants, it seems that the food was very good, but it just lacked that small extra bit when it came to justifying the price, especially as the wine list was fairly business hotel guest orientated.
It was undoubtedly the best Chinese food I’ve eaten, but the cost reflected that. I had the monkfish hot plate at £24 and my friend the lamb at £22. Plus the rice it was expensive but as a one off it was memorable. Most people seemed in a business lunch so probably in expenses - sadly not us ! Service was attentive and polite. Highly recommended.
Overpriced and not remotely authentic. In a hotel usually not a good sign
Very oily dishes, ordered the salt and pepper squid, oil and a powdery batter on every bite. aubergine smells nice but has little taste.. it’s heavily coated in oil. Sauce for the monk fish tasted like something out of the can.
Staff on the other hand were excellent! Friendly and attentive.
Very good quality food but service could have been better
We booked dinner on Wednesday evening based on excellent reviews from friends who had eaten in the restaurant. Our experience was disappointing.
Our disappointment is entirely about the food. Not good for restaurant
Our starters. My wife's was fine. I ordered prawns in a honey dressing. They were cold and overcooked to the extent that the meat was fibrous and chewy. In terms of value, I would question if three, not very large , prawns was good value
Main courses were not satisfactory. My wife ordered crispy shredded duck with pancakes. The pancakes were cold and the duck was not shredded - it was chopped into chunks. The waitress replaced the pancakes by which time the duck was cold
My main course of slow cooked belly pork was also luke warm as was the jasmine rice.
We pointed these things out to the head waitress. She apologised and offered to remove the service charge!! We declined as it was not the waiting staff who were at fault so why punish them.
The process in the kitchen would appear to need review.
I look forward to your response
Rather a depressing experience. The food was, at best, moderate, and, at worst - as in the case of that stand-by , aromatic duck - downright poor. I can't think that a single restaurant in Gerrard Street would have been other than ashamed to produce such a course, let alone at the price charged. We made the mistake, also, of ordering Chinese rice wine - Shao Xing. I lived for five years in the Far East and, having eaten widely in restaurants in Hong Kong and Taipei, was expecting something tasting entirely different from what the Chinese Cricket Club served: acidic, unappealing and expensive.
A lovely evening at the Chinese Cricket Club. My wife is allergic to things like crab and scallops so we chose a la carte instead of the Chinese New Year menu. The Emperor's Duck was the best duck we have ever tasted. The other dishes were fresh and tasty. No wonder this restaurant has been awarded with AA Rosettes for culinary excellence. Special thanks for Hang Zhou the restaurant's Manager. Hang explained each dish so beautifully.
Excellent meal, delicious food, pleasant atmosphere and good service. Meals were very tasty and well presented. The Only disappointment was that it took 30min for our drinks and 40min for the first course. We look forward to visiting again.
Quality and service is always at a high level at Chinese Cricket Club.
Have been too far better Chinese restaurants in London. Not great, but ok
Food was good and value was good, but service was very slow (took almost 25 mins for food to arrive during lunch) and no server came to our table at all after taking our orders. Our water was not topped up. We had to keep waving at them for attention. It’s a shame since the food and the location are both good.
The food at Chinese cricket club is excellent. Well thought out dishes, large portions and yummy food in a good setting in the city with amazing prices. What more can one want?
Excellent meal, very good value for money in January. Great place and definitely excellent and different dishes.
Delicious food, excellent service. Thoroughly enjoyable.
Although the hotel lobby setting isn't the most inspiring, service is friendly and efficient and the menu has something for everyone. It's not your average Chinese restaurant, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. If you want to try something different, I can recommend the Emperor's Crispy Duck.
Food was amazing. Definitely a gem of a restaurant and one I would revisit. The spicy squid starter, followed by the pork belly and chicken were too much for two. But an excellent selection. I would highly recommend.
We had a meal at the Chinese Cricket Club Restaurant to celebrate my birthday.
Fabulous food and excellent service. Thank you!
Great food, excellent value for money and great wine selection
Geat ambience and a good selection of food and always of a high standard. Such friendly staff!
Quiet and delicious food
Geat ambience and a good selection of food and always of a high standard. Such friendly staff!
Food was terrible. Looked great when it came out but it was all tasteless.
Very good food and excellent service. We had the emperor's duck, mapo tofu, aubergine and XO rice. Perfect amount of food for 2 people.
Small portion of food and even with the mega offer, it's still pricey. Mentioned to the staff about the offer in the beginning but the bill was still incorrect in the first place. Other than that, it's a good location for food.
Went to the Chinese Cricket Club for a business lunch. For a Tuesday it was fairly quiet. The menu was extensive and I really liked how they categorised their dishes into (from the sea, from the land, etc). We choose the dim sum and duck spring rolls for starters - didn't disappoint! The dim sum was fantastic! For the main, I can highly recommend the Chan-do chicken - exceptional! Service was great, very attentive. Comes highly recommended by me!
Original service a bit slow but did catch up.
We were not aware that the kitchen closed at 2.30
Good food and services. You are not rushed and are given space for conversations.
Booked a table for seven, and needed to bring the time fwd slightly which was easily accommodated. Service and quality of food were excellent and we all agreed that it was a lovely place to eat.
