I've eaten here a number of times and it serves really nice dim sum with a good choice of accompanying mains. Last time was no exception, although I wasn't particularly keen on the "specials" dim sum on offer.

First of all the menu is garbage and I am in diet, to be honest nothing healthy in the menu! As I am currently living in Canary wharf someone said why you don't try this restaurant and I decided today. This not the 1st "Chinese" restaurant I eat in it but it you don't need to know how the customer... More

I visited this restaurant today. I was a little vary of going after reading some of the reviews on here. I am very pleased that I ignored the comments and did go to find out for myself. The service was very good. We were very well looked after and staff were attentive. They kept refilling our teapot and cups and... More

We've been coming here a couple of times a year for over ten years and today it was the best I can recall. The range and quality of the Dim Sum was excellent, of course, and, on a beautiful sunny day, the view over the river was gorgeous. But what struck me - and how often have you said this... More

(Timing) Visited this restaurant on 8 January 2017 for lunch (2 people). The restaurant opens at 11:00 am on Sundays. We arrived at 11:45 am, and the restaurant only had about a quarter of its tables available, and by 12:15 pm, there was a already queue, so would suggest arriving early at this restaurant. (Food/drinks ordered) We ordered the following:... More

There are hundreds of Chinese Restaurants in London and this place was always a pleasure to go to but based on a most recent visit I can only say that this is no longer the case. The food as always is still great with dishes that are both traditional and other inventive but what spoils the whole experience is the... More

I love Chinese. I love it with a passion - but never again I will visit that place. My trip was supposed to be for the famous Dim Sum, however the restaurant forgot to mention (over the phone and via their website), that they serve it only during the lunch time. But their menu looked promising and we were hungry,... More
