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.

Myself and my partner wanted to celebrate a special occasion, and went for lunch on a Monday.
The staff were really friendly and helpful, the food was absolutely delicious and amazing. The room itself was beautiful.
We had such a great lunch and the staff made it feel very special.
I will be going back !

Sadly our party of 6 didn't enjoy this at all and we were all looking forward to it. We had the £88 set meal and it really did disappoint. So overall we weren't happy.

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

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.

The couple of Dim Sum items we ordered were excellent - Pan-Fried Turnip Cake and Baked Snow Mountain Bun.

The Wok-Fried Singapore Vermicelli with Lobster was delicious. A little more Vermicelli would have been nice.

The Honey Glazed Iberico Char Siu Pork was an improvement from Dinner a couple of days ago; it was slightly burnt, dry and hard when we had it for Dinner.

The White Rice was an improvement from Dinner a couple of days ago too; it was hard and dry that evening.

The only flaws or improvements are lack of:
• A Special Daily Soup; and
• A larger Dessert Menu to include popular Chinese Dessert Sweet Soups EG.Almond and / or Walnut Cream Sweet Soup and Black Sesame Dumplings in Sweet Ginger Soup. And Chinese Desserts EG.Mango Pudding. A small selection of Western Desserts would be nice too EG.Ice-creams.

Sophisticated and utterly delicious Chinese cuisine. I love that I could enjoy a slow Chinese dinner and catch up with my fellow Singaporean dinner, without the stress of the noise levels and rushed service you get at some high end Chinese restaurants here. Ace service. Would come back again even though it was too pricey for me

Overpriced food. Not up to Michelin star quality. No innovation in vegetarian dishes for tasting menu. Some were just salty sautéd vegetables. Some staff too busy casually chatting with certain customers to notice they were blocking aisles. Nice soap in toilets though.

We had assorted Dim Sum at lunchtime. In over 50 years of eating Dim Sum, I really think it was my best ever. Very friendly staff in nice surroundings. Quite expensive but very acceptable considering the quality, Will go again for lunch. Unlikely to go in the evening as the evening menu looks eye-warteringly expensive.

Excellent Chinese food. The dim sum was perfect and well-presented. The custard buns are highly recommended, but any dish we had was good.
Dishes on the menu are definitely much more expensive than average, but the quality is outstanding and worth the money.
Service is really good, but could benefit from a little bit of fine tuning. The waiter's patronizing insistence regarding the amount of food that we were ordering (too much in his opinion) was particularly annoying. Needless to say, we had to ask again for the menu and order more. Clearly his intentions were good, but if he should understand when the customer is pushing back.
