Best Chinese food in london

The room is on the 10th floor and gives views due east from Kensington park over London. At night, when we visited it was spectacular. Decorated with a perfect mix of mirror and red lacquer and staffed by the most delightful staff I have ever come across in a Chinese restaurant. It is a good... read more

I have heard lots of positive reviews of this place and thought I would bring a group of friends to give it a try - especially as a nice treat for Chinese New Year. So, the overall verdict is - not worth it. The overall bill came to close to £70 per person. For the price, it is totally not... More

The selection of food and the superb presentation makes dining at Min Jiang more than a meal but rather a life experience. The staff could not have been more helpful in explaining the content and preparation of the dishes to ensure that our selections were exactly to our taste, and the stunning view across London at night was magical.

Don't let the exterior of the hotel scare you away Min Jiang is one of the best Chinese restaurant in London and yes of course the Peking duck is excellent too, but perhaps best of all was the combination of the food, the friendly service and the superb view what we liked the most.

I must admit I always try to give a second chance to a restaurant before judging it but this time the service was so bad that I will defenetly don't go back. All the staff included the hostess and specially the guy working at the bar was not welcoming at all. All the times we tried to get the attention... More

We went yesterday with my son and my wife; it was our first time at the restaurant and we had fabulous time. The food was exquisite and the service very professional. On top of that you get a lovely view over London. I would firmly recommend this restaurant.

This is our third visit to Min Jiang in a year and we love it more each time. We pre-ordered the duck (melt in the mouth - simply divine) and requested a window table so we could enjoy the lovely view. The seats are comfortable (sounds a silly thing to point out, but I've sat in many restaurants where the... More

We have eaten at this restaurant quite a few times. The staff looks very miserable and not that attentive nor nice as you would expect in this sort of establishment ( which is a shame) but having said that, the food is always very nice, fresh quality produce beautifully prepared. We live 2 minutes away and it is the best... More

After the hype, a poor show. Our friend was visiting from Zurich and he was staying at the Royal Garden Hotel, Kensington, across our Hideaways Club Penthouse. Because of the freezing weather, it seemed a good idea to walk across and dine at a classy Chinese restaurant that his hotel concierge raved about and reservation was not easily available even...

Min Jiang is on the tenth floor of the Royal Garden Hotel in Kensington. We reserved a table by the window as the night time view of the London skyline is wonderful. Had a couple of cocktails, my Bloody Mary was hot and spicy as requested and delicious. There is a wide range of vodkas, whiskys, brandys on offer and... More
