Food decent for most part but lettuce wraps filling was terrible on the border to disgusting. We complained and got a shoulder shrug from the waitress.
Had the peking duck and was really good! Also had tofu hotpot, shredded chilli beef and rice... had a great meal, restaurant very clean and nicely set. Unlike those other restaurants in chinatown. Service was great , with change of plates, not rushed and very reasonably priced! Strongly recommend
Arriving at 18:15 we stressed the need to leave within an hour for the theatre. We were told this would be fine as the restaurant was not yet very busy. A first course was served quite promptly but then there was a long delay despite several assurances from the staff that the food was on the way. Eventually there was clearly not enough time to finish the meal so a waiter offered to box what remained as a take away. There was further stress when the restaurant had an internet problem and was unable to process my credit card payment so that the transaction had to be transferred to a neighbouring restaurant.
This was a quick pre theatre bite to eat, but the crispy duck was dry and tasteless.
We went here because it had 4.1 stars but TBH, it was nothing special and akin to a chinese you'd find in a local neighbourhood with no discerning tastebuds- not in china town.
Had a lovely lunch - staff very welcoming & food was great. Will be back!
Completely average food, brusque service. A small noisy restaurant with zero charm. I’d look elsewhere.
Fun evening, good relaxed service, good quality food. Generous portions and reasonably priced wines. First visit and would definitely go back and recommend.
Good food, service isn’t great.
Lovely food great value but the back room a little lacking in atmosphere... the rest of the restaurant looked great
Much less crowded and better value than the restaurants in the main Chinatown area. Friendly staff.
Service fine, and we were pleased with all the food until the lemon chicken came - chemical and sherbety, not just nice lemon!
Nice furnishings, didn't try the loos.
Foods in general are great. Especially pan fired veggies were fresh and delicious and Dimsum wrap was thin which I like.
On a busy Saturday night we were pleased to find a table for 8 (pre-booked) in Chinatown. We had a corner to ourselves where we could talk and enjoy ourselves comfortably. The staff were patient and helpful. The menu had many options for all our dietary quirks including vegetarian, gluten free, carnivores, sea-food allergies, small eaters and big eaters. The food tasted good, delivery was fast, portions were pretty generous. We were happy. Total cost, about £22 per head.
Lovely staff & yummy food 👍
Great Dumplings!!! Great and quick service! Good location!!
This was our first visit to the restaurant. It is well presented and clean.
The staff were attentive and the food was excellent.
The food was average but the service was very slow. I won't recommend the place.
Went for birthday meal with my friends and my boyfriend food was great atmosphere was great. Would go again.
China Town restaurants I have been to have been smart and neither was this. The food was good quality but annoying that there was a minimum £15 spend on food per person even at lunch, which meant we had to order more food than we needed. The back room was lacking in atmosphere. The restaurant was busy with lots of families eating.
Casual dining. Menu mediocre. A bit over priced for what’s available and limited variety of traditional Chinese dishes even with the ‘Chinese menu’
Met all expectations will return .............................................................
Good food, good service
Overall was very nice and service was very friendly. Toilets and stairs were not great.
Gluten free rice very simple and lack of taste but rest was good.
My family and I thoroughly enjoyed the food, I could not fault any of the items we ordered. The crab and sea bass were excellent. The staff were very friendly and took time to talk to us.
I would definitely go again.
Four of us went for pre-theatre dim sum, which was good quality. Other food options looked good - will probably return for steamed sea bass.
First time visit at the restaurant.. if you want great traditional Chinese food it's definitely the place to be. The portion size are huge! And the taste of food is very good.. if you like dim sum then you'll enjoy. I had tried several places but didn't like it. But overall really good.
Some say price is expensive but in my experience dining in central London x2 and a 3 course meal and drinks averaged at less than £70 which I thought was good.
You would pay less than £10-£15 in a fusion related restaurant. Will come again!
Great Chinese to choose in china town . Friendly service
Had a great experience. The food was excellent, the service as it should be and the ambience very pleasant given it was a hectic pre-Xmas occasion......and even the coffee was good, not something I would generally say of Chinese restaurants. We sat at the back, where I particularly liked the 50s/60s decor.
I shall certainly return.
Very good dim sum I took my 6 and 7 year old boys and they loved it peaceful place to eat great dimsum
Lovely staff ! Yummy authentic Cantonese dim sum 😋
Fairly standard Chinese meal and what you would expect for Chinatown. What sets it apart is the friendly service. All dishes were nice enough but fairly non descript. Good for a quick meal prior to the theatre.
Great food, good service, enjoyable evening had by all
Great food and attention give service.. Good bye and tasty
I booked this restaurant for 8 people after reading the reviews, prior to going to the theatre on Saturday night. It was better than I expected! The food was lovely & big portions too. For starter we had crispy aromatic duck & hor d'oeuvres starter sharing platter for 4 people. For main we shared 2 noodles & 1 rice (they are big bowls) and had 6 main dishes between us. It was all tasty especially the Mongolian king prawns & chicken curry. The service staff were polite & attentive, everything came very quick after being ordered for how busy the restaurant was. Yes Chinese food in China town (London) is generally more expensive but I have no problem with this as the food was very good. Not far off 5*. Will definitely visit again.
Nice ambience, friendly staff and lovely food at a good price
We came here before the Leicester Square Theatre close by, and had a very good value set menu which was all very good
Basic food, over priced and horrific toilet facilities.
Good dim sum and quick service. Prawn crackers on the table while we decided what we wanted is always a good way to start a meal.
Best dim sum in chinatown in my opinion, good service and a clean, ambient environment. Never disappoints!
