We went here after a boat ride in the canals and were starving. The food came pretty fast and if you like Chinese, you won't be disappointed at all. The staff seemed a bit lofty to me but I went there for the food so didn't bother much. Not very costly but not very cheap either.

We have been here many times, the food is very good! Especially the crispy duck. The decor is simple & pink, so do not be fooled. The place can really be recommended. A little noisy. Super service!

Went with a Chinese friend who had this restaurant recommended by her Chinese friend so that speaks for itself . The Dim Sum was excellent and the choice extensive . I just wish it was closer to home but then again it's probably as well as I could eat there every day .

Great food. Service was a little odd, but...fine in a pinch. We were looking for something within walking distance of our hotel and this is where we picked. Other places seemed to cater more to the 9-5 crowd. Quality of the food was excellent.

Was looking for a good place to eat close to Paddington and stumbled across this authentic Chinese restaurant by accident. The food was great. Service excellent. My only complaint was the chilli dishes were not hot enough (spicy) that is. They also have a great cocktail menu. The sizzling chicken in black bean and chilli was my main and delicious... More

Needed to book a late lunch/early dinner near Paddington Station so the parents could catch an early evening train. I'm a periodic visitor to Kingdom Street for business but had no idea this gem was hiding innocuously in the basin alongside chain pizza, salad and sandwich restaurants. The dim sum was so good we had no room for a main... More

We were welcomed by the wait staff at Pearl Liang. The restaurant is walking distance from Paddington station. We ordered an amazing meal. I love the Peking Duck, Lobster with ginger and scallions, the bok choy and the calamari. The restaurant began to get fuller as the evening continued. The restaurant is not cheap, but it is welcoming and the... More

One of the best Chinese Restaurants in London. I have been there with Family and Friends loads of times and each time the food has been excellent and the service has been brilliant. Its a bit of a walk from the street, but easy to reach by underground tube station, Paddington Station being the nearest. The Staff are welcoming, hospitable... More
