I had Beijing dumplings and fried squid there. Not good, not authentic taste and of poor quality. The place seemed quite busy, so probably many people find the place good or may be just cheap. Definitely no no from me.

Good authentic Chinese place that serves authentic, simple Chinese dishes. Food is great, price is very reasonable and the food is served in a short time. Do not expect a fancy dining place as this is very simple. We loved it.

The perfect place to grab delicious dumplings freshly prepared in front of you. Tiny restaurant where you eat and leave as soon as your plate is empty. But don't Miss the opportunity to test the Won Tuo soup and the Beijing dim sims. Cheap, really...More

I ordered roast duck rice and I felt like they served me leftovers from 2 days ago. Moreover, the skin of the dumplings were wayyy too thick!! Everything tasted really bad. The meat and rice was dry and not fresh at all. 100% sure that...More

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
