I visited this restaurant with my daughter for lunch and we had dim sum. The service was pleasant and quite swift. All the dishes were really fabulous. Dishes with prawns and scallops in were very generous with the prawns and scallops. The food element of the bill was only £20 for the two of us which is really remarkable value... More

The restaurant is In the heart of Chinatown and well worth a visit. We went for lunch today and hadn't booked but we got a table upstairs straight away. The menu has lots of set meals ranging from 2 people up to 8 with plenty of choices and variations. We went for all of our food from the main menu... More

Having been to this restaurant in the past, I decided to give this place another go. Although we were waiting outside for 15 minutes, we were escorted and shown to our table. I do wish a bit more care was put into our seating arrangements. Food-wise, they offered the usual range of food you encounter in the other Chinatown restaurants.... More

My mum and I ordered dim sum dishes but it was very delayed to serve. The waiting staff were really loud and shouting across the restaurant. We both overheard the staff talking to one another saying "even if your mother cooks for you, you just have to wait" (I can speak Cantonese). Yeah but when you open an establishment that... More

Most tasty and best dim sum restaurant in China Town. Each dumpling bigger than others we have had recently. Also very reasonably priced. So good value and yummy!

Me and my husband were here for dinner last week and absolutely loved the place! The food was second to none. Would recommend the duck - DELICIOUS! The staff was very helpful, very friendly with all customers. A little girl asked if she can have more than one fortune cookie, the waiter brought her about 20, made the kid's day.... More

Staying in Soho

Neighbourhood Profile
Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighbourhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
