Lunch set menu was underwhelming. We didn't have much time and aren't fluent in all dim sum types, so went for set menu. Nothing special at all taste-wise.
The service was good, both on the floor and from the barman.
Won't be returning I'm afraid.

Delicious food, we had one of the tasting menus. Some of the food was a bit too spicy for me but overall was very good.

The Peking Duck was to die for! Service was average. Not the best value for money but the interior was lovely. I like their coat check and the bathrooms are very clean. They should change the menu to include a Lunch for two including Peking Duck as part of the meal. Right now, you either have to dine with 4 people or dine for 2 people + £100 peking duck. Not good value for money. A bit naughty pricing really.

The best Chinese restaurant in London for Cantonese food and dim sum. Price is on the high side, but worth it for the food.

Everything was good except:
• The 2-person tables are packed fairly close; and
• These tables are small so if you order more than 2 dishes with drinks, there is no room to place everything without feeling really cramped;
• Fish - only whole fishes are available so if you are 2 persons dining and small eaters or one person not liking fish then this item of food is NOT an option at all. Consider offering fish fillets and not just a whole fish dishes?

definitely MSG inside as we felt so thirsty after eating the food.
The food is definitely overpriced, given the quality and taste.
Service is okay. One of the waitress who is splitting a noodle dish accidentally put some noodle on her hand. she took them off and put it back to our bowl. Don’t know if she washed her hands before. Even her hands were clean, it is still a bit disgusting.
Not very impressed.

Very average food, the wine paring is limited to one glass every 2 courses, so 3 glasses of wine for an additional £50 per person.

Our bill as a result of additional glasses of wine was over £225 per person, I could deal with this if the food had blown us away but was probably the worst asian food i have EVER had and that includes the local chop suey house at the end of the road.

Avoid at all costs.

Service was impeccable.

I invited my friend for a birthday lunch at Imperial Treasure, having had dinner there a number of times. Having enjoyed their tasting menu in the evening we opted for the lunch menu. I wanted my friend to have a taste of their Dim Sum too so asked for their “ best” one which was Xiao Long Bao. The XLB were very ordinary, in fact I have better ones in China Town. The lunch menu was very frugal: spring rolls and a bun for starter, vegetables and a little piece of pork for main and Jelly and fried custard dumpling for desert. It was rather underwhelming and I would rather have a more expensive option which showcases their food better. As it was lunch for two with wine came to a hefty £177. I would not consider that value for money.

Very Grand Restaurant.
Service was great, polite efficient and not overbearing.
Went for the dim sum menu and there were a couple of hits
Baked Snow Mountain Bun with Ibérico Char Siu Pork being stand a stand out.
Will have to return for the a la carte menu for dinner. Save up , not easy on the wallet as you would expect for a place like this!

if you are ready to spend over 100 per head go there. the place is very plush and nice and the food is super, yet it is not what I am used to such as if I wanted half a crispy duck is not available.
all in all is a very nice super restaurant.

Very disappointed. This is an expensive restaurant, but my wife and I found the food quite poor - a number of the dishes were greasy and not particularly pleasant in terms of flavour. Portions were also on the heavy side, which became a problem as we worked our way through the set menu. We are avid consumers of food from around the world and love trying new dishes, but really didn't enjoy our meal here. Service was OK, but the ambience is essentially functional. When you match up the experience with the cost, this was probably one of the worst-value meals we've had.

The Soft shell crab was excellent as was the dim sum, the main courses were not memorable. Service was great, atmosphere was lovely.

Bland and uninteresting food with some dishes almost inedible . Dishes lacked taste and were served too quickly and too hot . This has all the hallmarks of prepared food heated up in a microwave at the last minute . The pieces of overcooked lamb with no seasoning, topped with a sliver of burnt garlic were revolting . The noodle dish with a meaningless dash of truffle oil also stood out as poor . One of the lobster starters was not bad but let down by soggy batter and the batter covering the accompanying Okra was heavy and farinaceous.

The food here is inferior to that in many far cheaper restaurants in China town , just round the corner.

The decor and service are of a very high standard but at £88 per head for a set menu the food just has to be much better . I would never go back and would not hesitate to advise against a visit

Exceptional service and food. Some menu items are indeed pricey, but a reasonably priced meal can also be had. 3 piece dim sum appetiser amongst best I’ve ever had. Take on Singapore Chili Crab using prawns was delicate and seasoned/spiced perfectly.

The food was good but the service was abysmal for the price and the value was really lacking. We had to ask to have our water refilled multiple times. We had a group of 6 people which had a table in a booth at the corner and many times the waiters would have to reach across to reach the corner of the table which often blocks conversation among the table. They should reconsider the table set up. Last but not least, after we had paid the bill, they had made an error in their calculation and accused us of not paying the full bill. Just as we were outside the door, they brought us back in. Then once we were in, they realized the error and did confirm we paid the full bill. Such a travesty! Way to make a customer feel welcome...
