    My daughters 18th birthday We had a lovely meal it was a lot busier than it’s been for a long time. We go here quite a lot as it’s one of our favourite restaurants. We drive all the way from Essex and have never once been disappointed.

    The restaurant was really busy (which is great to see) but that did mean service was slower than usual. This is one of the best Chinese restaurants around, and we’ll worth a visit. I’m fortunate to live close by so visit often.

    Other than the great location I have nothing good to say about river view ! It’s just your regular 1980’s out-dated Chinese restaurant. Amongst other things poor quality ingredients badly cooked in a dreadful setting. I was really hungry when I came here so I should have enjoyed the food even more but it was terrible. Satay chicken was dry, Peking ribs they forgot the sauce but was over cooked and once again dry. Chicken in cashew nuts and beef in black bean sauce was slimy and the ho fun noodles were all stuck together with just the sauce on the outside. I don’t understand how there is so many positive reviews ? I am beginning to question open tables recommendations ! Basically apart from the location everything needs to change. Come on shape up Wapping doesn’t deserve this restaurant !

    Good resturant and location, staff were attentive but lacked atmosphere. Maybe this was because not everyone was back to dining out and it was relatively quiet. Staff were very nice and attentive

    The place was buzzing and the food very good. They were very focused on making sure we all felt comfortable the tables were spaced out and between customers chairs and table were cleaned discreetly. They have some great wine reasonably priced.
