The 140-seat restaurant opens in a Grade II-listed building, serving the finest and most authentic iteration of the iconic dish and preserving the centuries-old methods of the Emperor’s imperial kitchen. It harbours an extensive list of well-curated wines, champagnes and sake. A cocktail bar will offer a list of Asian-inspired cocktails and a whisky collection.
Average/ offhand service : not made welcome
Food OK but not special and certainly too expensive for what it was
Best Peking Duck ever. Great service. Outstanding wine menu.
Food was mediocre- asked for Chinese hot mustard was provided hot dog style mustard. Ordered fried rice - was bland and little to no taste. Ordered Salt Pepper prawns, which was not listed as a main course but they said they could do it- very disappointing.
Overall, thumbs down
Slightly above Average dim sum place
Staff was disinterested. Server (she) lacked passion.
Main course was not served even after 25 mins of ordering and then we had to cancel and leave. She brought and left rice on the table without accompanying dish.
There was no apology or effort to make up.
Very vegetarian unfriendly place
Lovely food, the duck was amazing.
Very relaxing place to have such lovely food.
Excellent food and service! Loved it and can’t wait to come back
Was a bit underwhelming to be honest - overpriced for the quality of the food- lots of nicer Chinese fine dining haunts in London for the same or lower price
This restaurant was an unexpected treasure. I booked it as we were going to see Phantom of the Opera. The food was divine, the restaurant it self was amazing and the service was second to none. This would be one of my favorite restaurants ever!
Def coming back next trip to London!
It was an dinner hosted by me after my proposal to my girlfriend. The food was fantastic. But the service was very cold and unprofessional. The gentleman serving us was without ‘passion’ and quite irresponsive. A bit down for such a happy occasion.
Very authentic Cantonese food. Comfortable seating. I really don’t want to be in Chinatown for Cantonese food, where it’s messy and dirty. Tables for two persons a bit small and close to one another.
Expensive but exceptional Chinese food (mostly classic Cantonese and dim sum) served in a very elegant, if slightly stiffly formal, room. The roasted Peking duck may at first seem outrageously priced at £100 for a whole duck, but it served three of us, amply, over two courses - first sliced tableside and served with a generous quantity of handmade pancakes and accoutrements, then stir-fried with ginger and spring onions (there are other preparations to choose from) - so really it's a bargain! Dim sum were all excellent, especially crispy prawn cheung fun and har gau. Custard buns and tarts were delicious although the latter took a long time to come, one of a few minor glitches in service which although not significant shouldn't really be present at this price-point. Nevertheless, I would and will return!
Not a big fan of waitress wearing perfume while serving food. Manager is super good. Loved our time there. Food was superb the
Great service, superb food, and really good wine. Staff was friendly, place is comfortable and in a modern setting. Manager was very attentive and the staff knowledgeable.
The pekin duck was delightful. Be sure to call ahead and order in advance.
For what we paid just over £150 for 2 of such "normal" dim sum dishes we had, just far too over price. Presentation of the food is common! I expect flavour will surprise me with the price of the individual dish. Name of all the dishes sound delicious and good, but not matching the presentation and flavour.
Far too common. Hugely disappointed. I strongly believe Imperial Treasure can do better.
I knew that the restaurant will be expensive and we wanted to try the pekin duck there, the first dish of duck with the pancakes was superb very soft meat and crispy skin, for me the second dish of the duck wasn’t worth it too much bones and hard meat it is true that the price is too much for what you are getting
Amazing food....Nice ambience....warm service.....Classy
Exquisite Chinese food. So different from the "run of the mill" Chinese restaurants that you normally find in more "commercialised" areas such as London's Chinatown. Brilliant menu and more than adequate wine list. I would recommend to anyone who seriously wants a top-class Chinese meal.
Dim sum was good. Slightly expensive given the nice environment.
Although recommended to me by Chinese people I cannot endorse their view. The service was unwelcoming and offhand . Not a good start. Apart from that the menu is overpriced . Three dim sum for 9£ is hardly justifiable whatever ingredients are used. They were nothing special. Nor was the char siu or the pork belly.
Although the starters arrived quickly we had to wait 20 minutes for the main courses.
Unfortunately they were similarly indifferent.
160 £ for two with 2 beers is extortionate unless the food and service are exceptional.
Royal China Club is far better
Wonderful full and service can’t wait to go back
Simply outstanding in all aspects. It is a must try.
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.
Wonderful food and service. Truly outstanding.
Excellent food, swift delivery to table and helpful staff who made informed recommendations.
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?
Arguably the best chinese food in London.
Peking duck was good but the Chilli crab dish was too sour and not flavorful enough. Love the osmanthus jelly dessert
Delicious food, great presentation and overall lovely and attentive staff. The cocktail prices were a bit steep though.
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.
Nourriture assez ordinaire qualité prix à désirer je ne recommande pas ce resto
Incredibly (and unexpectly) good!
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.
Great quality food. Great ingredients.
Good dim sum.
Excellent dim sum, nice surroundings and great service. It isn’t cheap but worth the money.
Have been here for so many times and never had a bad experience. Amazing food and service!
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.
