This is a nice modern Chinese eatery in Hampstead. The food is of a good standard, tasty and nicely presented. It is a bit pricey, the mains that in other places of similar standard is £13 pounds, here they are £17/18 pounds. For prawn lovers would recommend Deep fried prawn with crispy garlic, spring onions & spicy salt pepper, really... More

Dim sum are amazingly good, as good as the one you use to eat in Asia. Soup are really good (the crab and corn one is great) and the specialities are as good as surprising. What else? Good product, a lot of creativity in each plate. In center London with a more trendy and fashionable design, it will be in... More

Situated on Hampstead High Street. They have moved across the road since my last visit. Parking relatively easy in the surrounding streets. Friendly attentive waitresses who served delicious, well presented food, which was prepared and cooked in front of you at the entrance of the restaurant. Definitely worth a visit Quite expensive but good value for the quality. 5% reduction... More

I was a devotee of Goldfish when it was across the road, but usually for a dim sum lunch. This time it was for a late dinner. I am not sure I prefer the rather cramped feel of the new interior, despite its white linen, I rather liked the airy spaciousness and wooden tables of the old establishment. Perhaps it... More

I had a (single) spring roll starter which was greasy and quite bland with no sauce or anything on the side. The main was pumpkin edamame tofu - three things I love, so I was excited to try it. Unfortunately the tofu was unseasoned silken tofu, and the small drizzle of pumpkin sauce was almost tasteless with only a mild... More

A restaurant in the long 'n thin category, my preference was for vegetarian spring rolls followed by chilli chicken. A d very tasty it was too - and in very ample quantities. Follwed up with the banana fritter which was... More

A superb restaurant with an array of Chinese dishes you've never heard of. All served beautifully and all deliciously tasty including a signature dish of Marmite Chicken which I chose simply because the two just didn't go together in my mind. Fabulous and the marmite chicken is a must

We haven't been here since the winter. Reason being is. The last time we visited, they were so grabby. Food was served so quickly. Before We'd finished our first course they were standing there with our mains. Not only that, they keep pestering you with 'would you like another glass of wine' we just find they are there just to... More
