OUR STORY
Dragon Inn Club is the most secret hideaway venue featuring ancient dark wood, bamboo, authentic ornaments and décor, recreating the voyage of the famous Silk Road.

The open kitchen on the ground floor is a casual dining area, where you can pop in for our signature dim sum basket, Sichuan noodles or street market style small plates. On the lower ground floor, diners can enjoy a drink at our cocktail bar and choose to eat at either the ‘Dragon Room’ or in the hot pot ‘Temple Room’. For something more intimate, there’s a Private Dining Suite for groups and eight two-seated Private Caves along the ‘Silk Passage’ to choose, individually named. The cocktail bar offers an unique variety of signature drinks showcasing the Dragon Inn Club experience. But while the food might be a modern take on Sichuan cooking, the décor, which features antique furniture and accessories imported from China, makes you feel like you have stepped into 8th century China.

Shh, an absolute hidden gem. Living next to Queensway, and having gone to all the usual top rated Chinese restaurants eg Royal China, Duddell’s, Hakkasan, Bright Courtyard, Imperial treasure, I can tell you this homely little place in a side street near Victoria Station wins hands down. Perfectly seasoned yet juicy crispy aromatic duck, lobster ginger scallion with the sweetest noodles ever, and lots of new offerings like cold okra salad with soy and ginger plus frog legs, sweatbreads, ok, I didn’t try those last two but I’m sure it shows the authenticity of the place! Lots of Sichuan dishes, steamboat, plus the more familiar but still equally executed Cantonese. On the second day after lockdown the menu was understandably somewhat shorter, but nothing was done half heartedly and everything tasted very fresh. Charming waiter kept offering us complementary items, which was totally unnecessary. I will be coming back again as thankfully it’s just outside the congestion zone and you should too, it’s precisely these small local temples to hospitality and honest hard work that most need and deserve your support right now.

Excellent food, justifying I think the above-average prices.

Incredible service – there were no hot pot tables when we arrived despite my booking but the manager was amazing and helped us find a great table quickly. Food was outstanding and fresh, and the staff are impeccable and friendly. Highly recommended – wonderful gem of a find!

Authentic Chinese - approved by a friend who is from Shanghai, also a gourmet. Great food and atmosphere. Try here if you like Chinese food! There’s no food you’ll feel like ‘so-so’.

Go for the hotpot! So happy to hear they had a vegan hotpot option, which was delicious and spicy and full of exciting veg. Perfect sharing food and much more interesting than ordering individual dishes. The staff are super friendly, we ended up going back a week later to bring more friends!

Such an amazing and comfortable atmosphere. Can go with friend, or as a group, but definitely romantic for a date as well.
The food was amazing, the staff were so helpful and polite.
The manager was also very kind and friendly.
Will definitely be going back there.

food did not disappoint! the hot bowl rice with duck and seafood was AMAZING. service was not as great as it was on previous visits. the drinks took a very long time to come and no one checked on us once the food had arrived to see if we needed anything else. that was a shame because we definitely would have had more drinks!

This is the best restaurant I have ever eat in London. the food is very delicious ! i would like to recommend it to all my friends.
这是我在伦敦吃过最好吃的餐馆!这里的川菜真的很棒!味道非常正宗,我甚至在国内都没吃过比在这家餐馆吃到的更加正宗的口水鸡!螺片豆腐皮蛋也非常值得推荐!豆腐很嫩,入口即化!和螺片一起吃的时候口感特别好!烤鱼也非常棒!是我一直很怀念的国内的烤鱼的那种味道!外皮很酥脆很香!
真的是太好吃了!!!!虽然是去吃的中饭,但是晚上看完灯光展吃完晚饭本来打算直接回家了,想了想还是特意转地铁又跑了一趟来这里买份外卖带回去!真的值得!

We chose this place because they were open later than other restaurants (we came here after being to the theater). We got in for the final seating of the night, and the place was quiet. This is a huge restaurant, so I imagine they can handle very large parties. Service was outstanding. The food was very good. The fried tofu was fantastic! So was the sizzling beef served in a hot stone dish - perfectly cooked! The whole sea bass was also perfectly cooked. My only wish is that that some of the dishes would have a little more punch with the spices. Otherwise, a very good meal!

Had a family group of 12 for a celebration and the staff couldn’t do enough for us. Food was really very good and will definitely be going back .. The decor and ambience feels like you are in Asia.. and we didn’t even try the hotpot tables which look great fun .. either for a date or for families.. quite an intimate and exotic setting.

I took my husband here for his birthday along with my two year old daughter - we absolutely loved it! We were not sure what to expect, and went with an open mind, and we are so glad we found this place - just a year open in the area, the downstairs part is really great! we had a fab big round table at the very back, all other customers at the time were Chinese which was a good endorsement! staff very attentive especially the older man who was entertaining also for our child, and they didn't mind her also running around and playing with the other children that she met there. We had the dim sum basket to share to start followed by a sea bass hot pot which wow was spicy but it was amazing! I'm seriously thinking of booking here for my 40th bday dinner with friends, the downstairs also has a separate bar, highly recommend it!

Not many choices for desserts, only 3 options if I remembered correctly, one of which is not available. Would be better if have more choices, especially some Chinese desserts.

Really pleased! Food was insane and came quickly, lovely staff, only issue we had was that our cocktails took a long time to come, but we were compensated by them taking one of the two cocktails of the menu which was fine. Would 100% reccomend.
