We went here for an evening meal with a group of friends. The prices are above average for what we considered to be very average quality. The setting is nice and in one of the nicer areas of Canary Wharf.. The waiting staff are generally polite and attentive, although a bit slow and we had to ask the bill twice... More

The quality of the food is good, it is a nice spot to have some dim sum. However we had to chase the waiters often for service. It also took a while for some of the food to come. We ordered one dish and were waiting, one waiter told us it was on the way, then 10 minutes later another... More

Glad there is a good value of dim sum place in wharf without needing to go china town. Busy at lunch time, so booking in advance will be best

Had been here several times. The food is ok and dim sum is slightly better than average. However this restaurant is unhygienic and dirty. Their staffs put written order papers on the food. It's really disgusting!

This restaurant is one to avoid, the food was poor and the service was as bad. We had the mixed starter plate which was a deep fried disaster followed by in edible crispy beef which could easily have been cardboard inside with Kung po prawns which were a sugary gloppy mess. Price was way too high - unless you like... More

If you love Chinese then Lotus is a must visit. I've been to this restaurant many times as we used to live close by but on this occasion my husband and I went for our anniversary dinner. We asked for a table in the corner which had a lovely view of the river. We also told the waiter that we... More

Attended a private function on the top floor here a couple of nights ago. The hot buffet was delicious and plentiful. Bar prices were reasonable and the staff friendly.

When you hear of a floating restaurant, you think of a gimmicky place. There aren't many dining choices near the South Quay by Canary Wharf so we found this place. Food was way better than expected as was the service. Our waiter attended to our every need and even offered to have the chef make another small batch of fried... More

We opted for the £29 set menu, 3 course beginning with a mixed starter platter - pretty good, crispy duck pancakes - very nice, and two main courses with special fried rice and beef noodles, the latter was a meal in itself. We had crispy lamb with spicy plum sauce and prawns with chilli and black bean. Everything was good... More

Excellent dim sum and evening meals. The prices are very reasonable espcially the Dom Perignon which is just a fraction more than the supermarket price. The restaurant is situated on one of the inlets off the river Thames, so you always get a cool breeze coming of the waters. The waiting staf f are polite and attentive and they all... More
