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.
Mediocre, wouldn’t return.
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.
Good food, good service, but quite pricey. A good meal though
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.
Restaurant in good location,but I am very disappointed for
That perfect food ,we order 7 dishs in total .all food is very oil ,salted ,Looks like noodle bar food!
Can not understand why owner can still runing!
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.
Exerlent Chinese food one of the best in town from a Chinese person’s view. A future Michelin Star!
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.
The best in the best Chinese(Singapore company) restaurant, dim sum is super delicious, the restaurant is very beautiful decorated, service is warm and professional, I will visit there again very soon.
Fine dining. Delectable cuisine. A great dinner experience.
Absolutely amazing food and experience.
Sadly venue does not match the food . At best average quality and extremely overpriced Shame had expected so much more .
Nice experience, we visit again, also very nice interior.
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.
Couldn’t ask for more. Excellent
I’m a Chinese. Believe me. Food sucks. Very over pricing. The food not local enough.
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.
Food is OK, deserts poor, prices high. Much better Chinese food in London at similar or lesser prices
must try their Peking duck , though the included "second" duck dish is just passable.
some may like their caviar starter, and would recommend their steamed red dates dessert
Pretty impressive Dim Sum selection at 𝗜𝗺𝗽𝗲𝗿𝗶𝗮𝗹 𝗧𝗿𝗲𝗮𝘀𝘂𝗿𝗲’s first UK restaurant. Almost everything we had was of exceptional quality... probably the best I’ve had in London!
Although, be prepared to pay at least twice as much as your standard fare. It’s worth it though, with the use of the most amazing ingredients like Iberico pork and Wagyu beef. Set in the Grade II listed building that used to house Lloyd’s Bank, the restaurant interior is exquisitely beautiful. Worth the treat!
nice environment and friendly
Excellent dim sum at this new opening. All the food was excellent and the service was very friendly and efficient. Good cocktail list and bar staff were very friendly and helpful.
Best Chinese in town!
Outstanding. Possibly one of the best Chinese Restaurants in London. Wonderful ambience. Excellent staff.
Hard to know where to start. All of the staff were beyond belief attentive and couldn't have been more diligent. However food, although good/ok, did not justify the £150 per head evening. We all decided we were happier at Kam Tong in Queensway ! I suspect the dim sum at lunchtime are worth a visit - certainly the review that prompted our visit raved about them.
One of the better Chinese Dim Sum restaurants in London these days.
Great service and good food in a beautifully designed setting. Rather pricey as you pay for the service and environment.
Nice atmosphere friendly staff. Food is delicious and well price for what it is.
Some negative reviews are probably a bit mean in my opinion. Glad I ignored them.
The service was great with hot towel served before dinning. However the waitress was absent minded about what I have ordered. I want a non-alcoholic drink and they gave me a drink with alcohol. (This is Sh*t) And then the food was average, doesn’t taste like authentic Chinese especially the mapo tofu and eggplant, just like sauce stir with the ingredients but cost £18, the eggplant is short Spanish eggplant and not the long eggplant from china. It is incomparable to their restaurant in shanghai or Singapore, not really worth it unless you are ready to pay £80-150 per pax.
Overpriced I would say. However the duck and beef hofan were amazing, roasted bbq duck Cantonese style, and Angus beef Hofan, highly recommended. Overall: Came for once and don’t think will return basically.
Biggest issue is the quality of the food is not comparable to the ones on Asia. Huge disappointment and certainly not worth the money. Very good ambience and service though!
I had a great experience whilst hosting my clients for dinner. The deco is modern and beautiful. I wish there was some music at the background, but I am assuming it was a technical issue. I recommend the restaurant
Absolutely delicious! The Peking Duck is a must-try! It is definitely more on the expensive side for Chinese cuisine but the ambience, service, food & cocktails was incredible!
