Firstly the building inside is really amazing with its high ceilings and pillars. I have been to Indian restaurants like this with their Raj influences but not Chinese. We were being taken for lunch by a business associate who is Chinese born and is in the food industry. This is her favourite London Chinese restaurant. The food itself was of... More

I am normally sceptical when dining at hotels as it can sometimes be a rather mixed bag. I found dining at the grand Imperial restaurant a very pleasant surprise. We chose this restaurant due to its proximity to Victoria station, so when in London and you have time to spare, this may be a good bet. There is a side... More

We met up with a few friends for Dim Sum. The restaurant was in a nice space in a building right next to Victoria Station. Service was polite and friendly and Dim Sum was fine but not exceptional, I would still prefer Yau at Cha for the food. The restaurant was quiet and pleasant and is certainly a perfectly good...

I took my family here for dim sum on the recommendation of a Singaporean friend. He had explained that the hotel owner is Chinese and therefore insisted on a high quality Chinese restaurant - so I had high expectations on his word and the many positive reviews. I am pleased to report I had none of the bad service experienced... More

My husband and I (we're both British Chinese) went to this restaurant for the Chinese New Year celebration (01 Feb 2014). We found this restaurant on some Chinese calendar advert. And I must say, this's such a wrong decision to go there!!! The service was really bad. All the staff were very colde and they didn't know how to smile.... More

In terms of food quality, this would be (at least) a 3.5 in HK or Sing, but it is definitely a 4+ in London - more authentic and better than many more 'established' Chinese restaurants in the UK capital, even some Michelin-starred ones! It is not well served by its location, located in a hotel in Victoria station (therefore attracting... More
