Well deserved a top rated remark !
Great Chinese food, including dim sum, by London standard. Overlooking Kensington Garden gave it extra bonus. Service is great too to make it an enjoyable dining venue.

The view overlooks London but Its better by day. must orders are wasabi prawns and duck which you can have by half or whole in two servings. Request seat with a view although not always guaranteed. Drinks are at 10 pounds per cocktail. 36 pounds for half a duck which serves two. We got the first part shredded for pancakes and the second in duck fried rice. DUCK was a bit scarce in the second serving rice lacked flavour will try noodles next time. Really good service although English not their first language so a bit awkward when asking questions. DUCK was really tasty though and the environment was so relaxing will go back.

This restaurant is by reservation only. You should be easily reserve table for 2-3 if call the restaurant. It is on the 10th floor overlooking Hyde Park. One of the top Dim Sum in London. I tasted around 10 dishes and they are all very good except Siw Mei. Xiao Long Bao is very good here.

The food is fantastic, especially the duck, consistently great and even better than some ones I had back in China. And the view is just breathtaking. If you are in on a sunny day, you would see all the London landmarks with Kensington palace just down on the left. Definitely worth a visit!

We had Sunday dim sum. The dishes we selected were perfect with a blend of spicy, savory and mild among them. We had dined there several,times but never for dim sum. It was a great The service was spot on. Min Jiang earned it’s solid reputation the day we dined. So much so that we returned for dinner that evening.

Heavenly! Everything we had was super tasty but since the place is famous for the Beijing duck, I suggest taking a whole duck and some veggies stir fry and skip dim sum etc.

Enjoying the duck at the most since it is unique !

The only negative is that drinks are seriously overpriced but I guess it is expected in a hotel resto in Kensington.

Spectacular views, comfortable surroundings, outstanding food BUT: after one hour and twenty minutes we had received one bowl of soup. Their reason: "A lot of tables arrived at the same time". Isn't that what happens in restaurants at lunch time? It would not have killed them to offer us a drink or a cup of coffee but not to be. Service when it came was competent but a sense of humour would not go amiss. Desert on menu stipulated vanilla ice-cream and we were served salted caramel without a word of apology or explanation. The arrogance was not attractive but it is an outstanding restaurant that needs to take a step back and understand that it is the clients that keep them in business.

First class dishes, beautifully presented with a wonderful array of interesting flavours. This is one of the very finest Chinese restaurants I have experienced. On top of that, there are stunning views over Hyde Park and London from its 10th floor location. Expensive but worth every penny and well worth a visit.

We love this restaurant and visit whenever we are in London. We used to know the sommelier, Kenny, very well. Now he is gone and we found most of the current staff rather cold, humorless and curt. Food was still excellent but staff has lost its soul and finesse. It makes the experience more like a cheap diner than a wonderful restaurant. Too bad.
