The restaurant is actually named JinLi, not China City (as you can see in some photos). I booked a table for 10 people and they gave us one in a private room which I thought was nice. We arrived at 12.20 and they came around...More

Three of us popped in here for a meal having spent many hours visiting the sights of London. We were seated fairly promptly, but that’s where any promptness ended, because the service was atrocious. The restaurant wasn’t that busy, so we don’t know how staff...More

The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho

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
