Until today this used to be one of my favorite restaurants in London. The food is fantastic and views amazing. Sadly it was like eating in a creche full of screaming babies and out-of control, running around toddlers. Several hours later I still have a lingering headache. Staff had given up as they had completely lost control of the restaurant... More

The food is always delicious, beautifully prepared and served by professional staff. Their speciality is duck served in various ways which one should preorder.

Ordinarily a great view of precludes a great kitchen. Great Chinese food, let alone dim sum, is normally found in hidden away tea rooms in back streets or the finest hotels in Beijing and Shanghai. Min Jiang eclipses the 'rules' regarding all of the above by serving up not only fresh dim sum, but dim sum without msg. Most dim... More

The day before, we called to see if we could add another diner (friend) to our reserved table but unfortunately was told no. It seemed quite strange to... More

A couple of years ago my family and I went to China and ate some truly divine Peking Duck. Wanting to taste such deliciousness again, we finally decided to give this restaurant a go due to all its good reviews. We booked well in advance, mentioning we wanted the duck (that's important or you risk remaining duckless). When we arrived... More
