This is one of our favourite dim sum places in London. The place is small and a bit hectic in the heart of China Town... but the food is to die for! Must haves: the Xiao Long Bao... those little pouches of yumminess are irresistible! Just one order is never enough for us. The aromatic crispy duck is also fantastic!... More

I like rustic, well flavoured food and the potstickers here are excellent, especially the pig foot soup, sounds disgusting but actually very flavoursome and good value for money- a delicious, long and slow cooked stew. I have eaten there often and can also recommend the starters- dim sum- and all the stews and soups. Service is quick and, while not... More

Food is absolutely delicious especially rice and soup, in case of dimsum i think dumpling skin is a little thick but i want to visit again soon.

Me and my boyfriend had been to this restaurant once before, and decided to try it again. This time it was peak dinner time, so as expected there was a queue outside. We waited for about 20-25 minute outside for a table, with the door being slammed in our face every time someone in front got in. What was really... More

Try the crispy shredded turnips! Awesome. Service is a bit on the sloppy side. Nice atmosphere BUT the address here is wrong. Actually Leong’s Legend is in London 's Chinatown at Macclesfield St.

This small nondescript Chinese restaurant produces some of the best Dim Sum that I've tasted. I've eaten there several times for lunch and never been disappointed. The steamed pork buns were the lightest I've had, and very tasty. And don't miss the 'ciao long bao' small parcels of delicious gravy - however do they get these filled?! Be careful though... More

We are a three waiting to be seated. We were told it would be 15 minutes wait. 6 couples have now been seated and given priority over us. Yes it is busy but we are still waiting!!! How hard is it to put a seat on the end if a table?

Xiaolongbao were lovely - great taste and perfectly made Mapo tofu lacked szechuan numbing spiciness. Seemed starchy and somewhat "hot" but not the real deal. Lesson learned = Stick to the steamed dishes. Forget the Szechuan stuff. Service was amiable and fast.

It's in the theater district, where one expects a certain decorum from the staff. But this is Chinatown too. The waiter told us that even though we had three coming, we had to sit at a small table with little stools for seating. When we said there must be something better, they said "no, those tables for six people." We... More
