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

The most horrible place I have yet to eat in. Rude waitress and simply just nasty food. We returned everything but no credit or replacement offered. For a dingy place like this the bill was GBP 60 for three people what a ripoff.

I love this place and keep coming back. So cheap, quick and delicious. Service is efficient. Cash only. Recommend the spicy chicken, beef ho fun and BBQ pork with noodles. Very much recommend if you're in the area!

Ordered curry chicken which was horrible. Couldn't eat chicken. So I just ate rice and sauce. They charge extra for rice. Restaurant was dirty. Cashier was very rude and tried to overcharge me.

I only drank a sip of my own water, and the woman asked me to stop without saying anything polite. Terrible service! Beef is bland, no seasoning at all!

Great and cheap Chinese food, a bit small inside seating area, but it's all same for Chinese restaurant in London. Very cheap prices, but nice value for money. Portions are normal size. Try lychee juice — it's delicious.

Exactly the kind of place London tends to lack. Somewhere cheap and easy with every possible Chinese dish you could like

Walking by and decided to pop in. Stools screwed to the floor and everything compact. Food was very tasty and arrived promptly. Just like Soho twenty years ago. Definitely would return and cannot see why we should not join the army of regulars. Looked like...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
