An excellent evening on the 10 floor of the Royal garden Hotel. Stunning views of London made special with an outstanding sunset. Superb food possibly the best Chinese in London all dishes beautifully served with great theatre. Lovely wine and I will return.

The food was outstanding. We did not have a reservation and yet they accommodated us. The dim-sum was outstanding -- tasty and well prepared. The service was excellent, except for one waitress (who seemed to be an older oriental lady and possibly in charge of the dining room). The remaining staff tried to make up for her rude and boorish... More

The dim sum was safe (no chicken feet or tripe) but delicious. We were very impressed by the crab meat and pork Xiao Long Bao. The pastry was very fine as it should be. The pumpkin dumplings were very well presented. Portions a little on the small side but the quality made up for the quantity. As well as ordering... More

I have been twice to this restaurant, once with a group of 8 and more recently with 4. On both occasions all agreed that its was the best Chinese food they had experienced, particularly the duck (order in advance). All dishes were superb with service to match. Also, treatr yourself to a cocktail at their bar and soak in the... More

Our son booked us into this restaurant, we are not overly adventurous with Chinese food, so we were unsure of what to expect. Starters unusual but excellent, duck absolutely fantastic, never tired duck skin dipped in sugar before! Drinks a little pricey but all of this was worth in for the panoramic views over Kensington and London, we were fortunate... More

Good decor and ambience, with amazing views of the park. Great (if not slightly overpriced) bar and cocktails. Good and efficient service. We tried the lobster, Peking duck, pork belly and various other side dishes. Peking duck was carved beautifully, and presented in the most meticulous manner. Lobster was tasty, but for the price, I would have expected a lot... More

Having lived in Asia and enjoyed the very best cuisine there, this restaurant is a delight to discover. This is the very best Chinese food I have tasted outside of China. The Dim Sum is delectable as every morsel was sheer joy to taste. This restaurant could survive on it's magnificent food and fantastic staff alone but it is also... More

We were a party of around 20 going for a luxury dinner at Min Jiang. We got the full treatment in terms of excellent and varied food and splendid wine - served with care and followed by a good introduction to each of the eleven courses. Their "old wine" was a perfect supplement to the sometimes spicy food.
