Great views and food

Dined with a large group before the Clapton concert. Food was great as was the services. Very nice views of Hyde Park. Pricey but worth it for special occasions.

This is on the 10th floor of the hotel with fabulous views across Hyde Park to the landmark sites of London. The food was extremely good, especially the Peking duck (which you have to order at least 24 hours in advance - well worth the trouble) but the service was poor. The reception staff were too busy talking to each... More

If you want great views over Kensington Gardens then this is one restaurant to consider but in my experience the view is not worth the price. Starters were great and service attentive at first but main courses were disappointing and service seemed to disappear after the starters (drinks not being replenished, incorrect drinks being served etc). Not cheap at £400... More

We went to Min Jiang for lunch with our customers who had come from Indonesia. Situated on the 10th floor, the restaurant affords superb views of Kensington Gardens and of the London skyline. Because the woodfired roasted peking duck is a signature dish, we had pre-ordered it during reservations. When it was served, it was every bit worth the reputation.... More

We had heard this restaurant offered the best Peking duck in the whole of London! We were so impressed after our dim sum lunch at the bar there that we ordered the duck for lunch for two days later and were certainly not disappointed. We informed staff that we had little over one hour thirty minutes to eat and were... More

We came here to entertain my nephew who was making a brief visit to London. He's Chinese and we weren't sure if he was up to hard core English food so chose this restaurant because, from experience, we know it serves very good Chinese food. For our purposes it was almost perfect. From the 10th floor of the Royal Garden... More

Beautifully located on 10th floor of Royal Garden Hotel, Min Jiang enjoys dominating, 180 degrees view on Hyde Park (hence lunch better than dinner). Food-wise, it is a delicious chinease restaurant with plenty of very good seachuan disches (do not miss prawns with sechuan peppers and nuts) and outstanding Bejing duck. For the duck, preorder is key, as otherwise there... More
