This is an authentic high end Chinese restaurant with excellent food presented well with impeccable service provided by Selina, an elegant and charming hostess.
We had dim sum dishes, including innovative dishes which were outstanding. Our lunch lasted 5 hours, and at no time even after we finished did the restaurant staff put any pressure on us to leave. Quite the opposite. I would recommend this place as it is by far the best Chinese restaurant in London

This is one of the best Cantonese dishes in London . the dim sum were amazing the atmosphere was really good it’s in the very modern and well decorated place does not look like normal Chinese restaurant it’s a bit more expensive however if you only have the dim sum it’s not that pricey I strongly recommend any one who like Cantonese food to try the soup and the foie Grass with tofu this is one of the best Cantonese dishes in London and with delegate the dim sum were amazing the atmosphere was really good it’s in the very modern well decorated place does not look like no more Chinese restaurant it’s a bit more expensive however if you only have the dim sum it’s not that pricey I strongly recommend any one would like Cantonese to try the soup and the foyer grass with tofu it

One of the best restaurants I have ever been to. The staff and service were amazing. The food was amazing, the 'signature chilli prawn with manta' is a must!

Imperial Treasure is a sophisticated, quiet and stylish Chines restaurant mit exquisite cuisine. Owed to location and quality the prices are rather high, for my taste a touch too high, therefore only fair stars for value.

This was a new and good Chinese discovery for us. We will certainly go there again, when next in London. However, the service was slow and made a few mistakes, but the service deficits were recognised by the service manager. We went for Sunday lunch - it was full - mainly upper class Chinese - a good indicator. All in all a good start with upside potential. Test it and help them to improve.

Alex is an excellent and very professional. The service in the restaurant is one of the best restaurant wherever I have been.
FOOD here is another highlight. Although I feel a little too sweet about the dessert , the whole meal was amazing. Even I think it is a bit better than the Shanghai's Imperial Treasure.
My parents and I really enjoyed the lunch time.

The food was decent but a bit overpriced for the dim sum. There are better dim sum else where in London. The restaurant needs to work harder to come out with more creative menu to charge such premium for the dim sum. The Peking roast duck is not bad but hopefully they can let the customers go choose the portion size, i.e. half or full duck. The secondary dish for the roast duck should be provided with more choices.

The main course I ordered was unavailable. They were unable to offer us bread with our soup. The table next to us was to close so their conversations were intrusive. Most of there wine list was over priced. We spent £380 for 2 people and will not be returning

The food was just ok nothings memorable the service was hit and missed, the lady who’s served us was a lovely waitress a Greek lady forgot her name but she’s was the one who made ya feel good but the other staff was lack of interest of looking after us especially the waiter who’s took our order, not explained to us of how of the second course for the Paking duck will come on the bone , and when the pekin duck coming out from the kitchen, the other waiter assume that our duck is for other table so no one present the duck to us , they made us feel like a second class client after spending over £350 for two I felt like I would rather spend it elsewhere

Authentic and elaborated - hence less common - Chinese food in an exclusive though not particularly attractive environment (while the bar’s area is small but more sophisticated and in line with the level of the restaurant). Everything was a real explosion of flavours, with so well combined ingredients that it is very hard to detect each one. Unfortunately I was unable to try the duck, which I understand is the real house’s special which includes the chef’s live preparation. And curiously, something made the majority of us feel a bit bad overnight, which might mean that the richness of the dressings leads to a heavy outcome. Certainly unsuitable for families with children...

Food was good-but have had better Chinese in London.It was frighteningly expensive for what it was although that is clearly flagged on the menu es and so should not be a surprise.Ambience rather clinical by comparison to other up markets Chinese such as Hakkasan and Duddells. staff were nice and pleasant and they cannot be faulted although they should advise if they think customers have ordered too much-potion sizes are abnormally large.

as a Chinese origin, this is definitely one of the best Chinese restaurants in London.
Food is really yummy, unlike Hakkasan, everything actually takes really nice.
would definitely come back even it is pricey.

I went twice for business lunch in the past 2 weeks and the experience yesterday was a disaster.
The waiter took the wrong order. (which obviously happens sometimes, and I don't mind, but what really was wrong was the attitude of the manager)
We were 2 people, i ordered some dimsum, some veg, and half of a cantonese rosted duck at 35£. The waiter took the order of the peking duck at 100£.
When the dish came and I was asking, a manager came, and the tone was immediately like I was wrong. He quested me a couple of times in a tone which made me feel like I was wrong or lying. He stayed polite the whole time, but what was wrong was really the attitude. He then offered half the price on the peking duck, or return it and make the dish I origionally ordered. so I said, then the one on the table, will be trashed right? I ended up payin 50£ on a dish at 35£ which was not was i ordered. I would have really bad to throw that amount of food to trash.

I think, it happens very often that a waiter takes the wrong order and it doesn't really matter. But that attitude of "we are professional and we can not be wrong, it must be your fault" kind of tone is really irritating.

That's not the end of the story, until the end, the veg dish I ordered never came and I ended up cancelling it after asking 3 times. The waiting seemed upset probably because he got told off by the manager of taking the wrong order.

The whole experience was very bitter, unfortunate and disappointing.

In short: food is ok, but the process is not fluid, probably because it's still very new. and by the way, the decoration is really clod, without character but that's very personal. and the service attitude is definitely not there.

I will not go back again. There are so many other choices in London. Park Chinois stays my all time favorite Chinese fine dinning restaurant in London, the food and the level of service is always impeccable.

Selected fixed menu for two persons. All courses were very poor.

The worst meal we have had in London for a very long time, and by a very wide margin the worst meal for value for money.

I would recommend it be avoided.

Authentic Chinese food with up market ambience. It’s about time to have one proper Chinese restaurant like this in London.

Pricing is a bit high compared to other high end restaurants, even those in Mayfair.

The food wasn’t consistent. The Peking Duck I had the first time I came was really good. However, this time round wasn’t as good as the duck wasn’t as crispy. As for the other dishes some came out more salty than usual.

The room itself is very stylish: simple but elegant. Warm reception when we came in. I had pre-ordered a Peking duck. As we ordered I explained to the waiter that I could not eat garlic. We asked for the salt and pepper left over duck. It duly arrived absolutely with so much garlic and salt that the other guests found it inedible. When I complained I was cooked a version without garlic, but was amazed at the mistake! The fried rice was very bland as was the aubergine with tofu. The duck was ok, not brilliant; the cucumber was not sliced finely enough so the pancakes became a bit lumpy! It was phenomenally expensive as I expected, but the food was frankly not worth the money.
