Met our friends here for a pre Christmas get together. Lovely selection of food and very large portions - very tasty and my friend had a gigantic prawn as a starter I have never seen a prawn that size. Little messy to eat but nice all the same. The Singapore noodles were extremely nice. I had it served with black... More

I enjoyed my meal at the Lotus in Docklands - a simple vegetarian noodle dish, with pak choi and vegetable spring rolls. Just the correct spice and seasoning. I'd go back. Service was attentive, lots of tea and no rush.

Yummy food, but nothing extraordinary. Menu for us is limited to seafood and vegetarian as we only eat halal meat. A shame, considering asda next door sells halal meat. Price is good for standard dim sum place. Convenient place for local Canary Wharf-ians.

We had a late dinner for party of three. We ordered between three of us beef stir fry with choy sum, stuffed tofu and chicken with cashew nuts. The food had lots of gravy. Servings were tiny: they are on average only 2/3 the serving of even the smallest servings at a Chinese restaurant here in NZ. Seasonings wise not... More

We went to this restaurant for lunch on a Saturday, willing to try their dim sum. We haven't been disappointed. Very good service, quick and the food was amazing. It is also very well priced. We read about the queues but thought we wouldn't have any issue at lunch time. In any case we arrived there at noon just by... More

The restaurant is very near south quay DLR station and just 5 min walk away from the canary wharf. It has a good river view and was decorated like a traditional chinese boat. I had dim sum in the restaurant. The food is very delicious and they have a wide range of choices for dim sum. The restaurant was clean... More

I have been there many times, their afternoon tea is one of the best I ever had. However their dinner and service is not as good as their afternoon tea, but still good.
