Very good food across the board however the entertainment was too romantic. A place like this could use something much more lively.

Came here for weekend dim sum and had a lovely time. Stand out dishes were the pork spare ribs, cuttlefish dumpling and prawn and bean curd cheung fan. Prices a little bit higher than your normal Chinatown fare but you pay for the high end dining experience.

You are going to this restaurant for the experience and ambiance. Service, live jazz and decor were fantastic. While the food was perfectly good, it is incredibly pricey relative to quality. I would recommend this is a better restaurant for group outing where you can share many of the small plates and try a greater variety than we were able to as two people. Overall good fine dining experience but not somewhere I would go back.

Park Chinois was the biggest disappointment of our London holiday. The service was so horribly we almost got up and left when we first arrived. Our server came over a good 15 minutes after we arrived and if we wanted to order our dinner or did we want drinks first...nobody had even addressed us and no offer for water or drinks or anything...just get it over with and how he said it was very dismissive. He came back twice and only when we had someone get him. Never checked on us. The food was good, no issues there. The check came and it had charges for things we had no idea such as a charitable donation and a fee for entertainment. We were surprised but we just wanted to get out of there so we paid and left and decided that we would never do that again. Just don't do it.

Dined few times now, definitely I would recommend dim sum.
I find service a little poor considering to meet the price for food.
There’s always quite a few waitress/waiters but get an impression they hang out and I noticed I have to call them few times, and some are lack of knowledge to explain about each dishes.
Dim sum is possibly the best option as it’s more casual and friendly price compare to dine for dinner. Also the quality is way better pallet in dim sum than the main. I’d definitely go back for lunch dim sum in regular basis.

I had friends visiting from Dubai and decided to take the here for dinner. It was a Tuesday night and the restaurant was pretty empty which is fine but our waiter put pressure on us to give up our table within two hours. This made no sense given the less than full capacity of the restaurant.

Food was lovely and very tasty. Surprisingly large portions for the mains, but the price matches the size!

Great atmosphere with a live band! Bare in mind that you will be paying a cover charge per person for the entertainment on top of your bill.

Cocktails were lovely and the waiter was really helpful I suggesting food and drinks that complement each other.

Would definitely go again, as many other dishes I’d love to try on the menu, just unfortunately do not have the money or stomach space to have it all at once!

We went for lunch with our young children (ages 5 &7). We picked lunch so we wouldn’t bother the other guests but could still enjoy the ambiance and food because of our more casual approach. The entire experience is very good with attentive and responsive but not intrusive service. For those in our group who were vegetarian there were lots of choices, and for the rest of us it was also excellent. The food is a favourable twist over the normal fare which is well presented and seasoned. While the music wasn’t live it was appropriate for the scene but not too loud. The decor is fabulous and one must find an excuse to visit the bathroom.

A 'grand' Chinese.. Not just in ambience and food.. But the price too! It is a lovely place to go for a special night, however is really over priced, extortionate really. I get the Mayfair 😞, town up market vibe but really there is no need to push up the prices just 'because'. Food tasted good but I have had excellent Chinese food elsewhere and wouldn't say it was worth going back in a hurry. Friends even said the same thing over priced but would definitely visit once. Nevertheless they don't need to change anything as they are always fully booked so they must be getting something right!

Special occasion family Birthday. Dining room very grand and food overall was okay, nothing more. Kai does it better.

One complaint only; Singularly the worst waiting staff treatment from a male waiter ever experienced. Certainly did not understand the concept of hospitality nor principle of a restaurant being there for its patrons convenience and pleasure, rather than the other way around.

First up was his comment about daughters (Birthday girl) allergies (fish and nut) and could we have a simple chicken fried rice or noodles? The answer a flat "no". On the menu is egg fried rice, noodle dishes and chicken dishes. That conversation was finished with a "we're here to run a business". Not a good start. Next was how he would "have a special word with the chef to see if there's a peking duck available". The menu suggests 24-hours notice required which isn't very helpful if you haven't browsed the menu online before arriving. Novikov across the road have hundreds of ducks hanging up and really do understand world-class customer service. From there it was just pushy. Plates/dishes being cleared away while still dining, zero time to pause between courses and then asked to depart the table after the agreed two hours when the restaurant was still empty.

We asked for the £90 service charged to be removed before settling the bill, which they did.

Overall, a pompous restaurant completely flattered by itself with far too many first time, super-wealthy or tourist'y customers.

From the many amazing online reviews my own account appears a rare departure. To be clear, the only thing that skewed our experience was the attitude of a solitary waiter. Everyone else was super-friendly and completely professional.

I cannot fault the service nor food - my dig isn’t to this particular establishment but generally these Mayfair restaurants are now catering now for clients with deep pockets and small IQs - there are many restaurants in the capital where you can have great food, service and ambiance and not pay £400 for two people... it’s just a tourist trap
