This no frills restaurant is extremely popular with local Chinese and it is often difficult to get a table The food is very good and there is a wide selection. It is probably the best inexpensive Chinese restaurant in London.

In recent months the food has not been as good as before. The sweet & sour pork pieces were too big and grissly....the lemon chickan hardly any sauce. There are dozens of pieces of chewing gum stuck under the tables.....

Small and cozy restaurant. Staff serve you quickly. Roast duck and BBQ pork were both nice. The crispy roast pork was a bit fatty and didn’t have much meat to it. Overall a nice place to eat for the price.

We ate here twice while staying in London. We thought the food was very good. This is a little hole in the wall restaurant with limited seating and ok service. This is not a true sit down restaurant where you really expect to be catered...More

South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's
easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with
superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to
mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming
