    Food excellent, the quality of the white wine vs price 30£ was dissatisfying.

    Great food. Not busy and tables spaced out. Love this place and so do my children. Hand sanitizer on the door and felt safe to eat here. Staff were so friendly.

    I’ve been coming here for dim sum for over 10 years now with my Hong Kong peers and the food has been pretty much consistent the whole time and we always leave happy...especially as we cannot be back in Hong Kong to enjoy the same. Very pleasant atmosphere to catch up with friends in the heart of busy Chinatown!

    I have already reviewed the visit with Google. The dim sum were great as usual - freshly prepared and their own dishes eg Scallop and Spinach - pale green delicate steamed to perfection. The Aubergine and tofu dish from the vegetarian section was outstanding - lively chilli, very fresh tofu and soft aubergine. 3 tiny oven warm custard tarts made the best dessert. Service friendly and distancing achieved well. Going again in 2 weeks.

    Returned to this restaurant after a gap of several years... in the midst of Covid 19...just a bit different... no crowds. However service and food were very good and although Menu was limited I said what I actually wanted (not on Menu) and thats what we got... That is service to be recommended. Thank you for being open on our 2 nite visit to London- WE will be back

    The vegetarian Dim Sum selection platter consisted entirely of steamed dumplings in different shapes with the same filling. Very dull and too much slippery dough to eat. I’m sure I’ve had this dish before and had spring rolls and other items. Guess they thought we were a couple of tourists and it didn’t matter.

    Incredible flavour in the food, plenty choice, large portions, superb value for money. Arguably best Chinese meal I’ve had!
