    This is my second time here and it has been on my mind since my first visit. I must say it did not disappoint. The food, drinks and service here is immaculate. The duck was definitely the star of the show though. All of the staff are extremely friendly, tentative and accommodating, ensuring that our needs were met. A special mention to our waiter Kit who had the biggest smile and helped to make our night enjoyable. Thank you Imperial Treasure… we will most certainly be back again and highly recommend this place for a fine dining Chinese experience.

    Defo not worth the money apart from the Cantonese duck which was delicious. We had the Singapore prawns which were rubbery and lacked depth of flavour. The scallops also lacked flavour and the bok choy was underwhelming. If I were to come again I would probably go with a big group to have the peking duck

    We went to this restaurant for dinner for the first time with my husband. The welcome is warm and the seats are comfortable. The restaurant is lively but not too noisy. There were some errors in the service: for example, we had the wrong cocktail as an aperitif but that was made up for. We also had the wrong dish for a moment but that was also made up for. Regarding the food, it is very good but we cannot say that it is refined.

    We booked a table for 7pm and our guests arrived around 7.05pm. Once we ordered, the Peking Duck was served and then all the remaining dishes came at once. When we asked the server why the dishes all came at once, he said we needed to vacate the table by 8pm so that the next set of diners could be accommodated. I was never informed of this when booking, nor were we informed of this when ordering our food or were shown to our table. Considering we were paying well over GBP100 per head for the meal, this was pretty distressing and fortunately after a sharp complaint, the service was put right and the remaining 2 dishes came at a slower pace. Nevertheless the damage was done. Size of the dishes is small - quality of food is nothing special except for the Peking Duck which was good. I don't think I shall be coming back.

    Food was not great at all and very dry, dishes were lukewarm and you could tell had been pre cooked due to the speed at which they came out. As a fine dining restaurant you would expect freshly cooked food which was at least hot. Service was shocking and when asked to remove service charge I was given stern looks by all waiting staff, with some seen gossiping and laughing. I was then questioned and argued with being forced in paying the charge as the staff felt like they gave good service. This should be up to the customer to decide and it should be my final decision not theirs but they insisted which was unacceptable. Management must have changed as a few years ago the restaurant was great but now nothing special at all. It’s a shame but I don’t think I will return and would not recommend.

    Food was very good exquisite decoration very palatable not too spice or sour. Good balance between the fatty foods and health eats. Definitely recommend very packed seeing as it was the day after the Chinese new year but food came out quickly same with deserts and everything else simply top notch. Highly recommend if anyone wants to experience traditional Chinese cuisine with a moderate twist.

    Very delicious. Amazing service and wonderful atmosphere. I tried the Peiking toast duck twice and they are authentic. Soups are also good. However, the seafood dishes are extremely expensive with a little portion size. It is not worth it. Desserts are nice too.

    I had higher expectations for such a place. The good points:- The duck sauce was incredible Rice great the imperial mocktails spectacular ( highly recommended/ highlight of the night ! ) Poor points:- When came in no ones asked for jacket to be taken. Had to wait to be seated to asked them. 95% of people do not smile. I ordered the tasting menu for new years. When plates came no one told us what food was. We had to guess… (2 dishes Were tasty) (2 we couldn’t eat ) (Rest Average ) On our table there was draft from door, I could have kept my jacket on ! The was an actual bin full of garbage taken in front of us to another room ? I had to laugh. I didn’t feel comfortable nor relaxed. I felt more stress. Just take the Duck for take away !

    I've been to this restaurant many times before and always felt good about it, but this time I had a really bad experience. The waiter taking our order had a very poor attitude, and throughout the meal, our plates were never changed. The dim lighting made the whole dining experience very uncomfortable.

    Highly recommend this restaurant. It is a little pricey but you pay for what you get. My friend and I had a Dim Sum lunch which was delicious but next time I want the whole duck to share. Other tables were served the duck and we were green with envy. Ambience and service excellent. Space between tables generous and back ground noise was pitch perfect.
