Reliable Chinese food. The menu has nothing out of the ordinary, just the typical dishes. They are, however, well prepared. The service is good and friendly.

We have gone there regularly for many years and while the chefs have changed quite a few times sometimes for better, sometimes not the management has a good handle on quality such that we've never yet had a disappointing meal, quite the contrary. The mixed hor d'oeuvres and the chicken curry are my usual favourites, but almost everything we've tried... More

Popped in here prior to a family trip up the Shard. There were four of us, and we ordered a set meal for three and added two extra dishes. Starters of ribs, seaweed and sesame prawn toast was nothing special but the duck pancakes that followed were tasty and plentiful for all four of us. The mains were plentiful too,... More

It’s not often I leave a restaurant both hungry and thinking that I have been done, but this was one of those occasions.     We had a cheaper set menu for 4, the lowest priced bottle of wine, a few other drinks and a side dish; that lot came to just shy of £180.  The problem isn’t so much the cost,...

great spot, nice spacious lounge, lacking luster though. Food was really good, tasty even though portions were on the small side. Service was really good as well, compared to other Chinese places, it was too pricey though so unfortunately scores really low in value for money. I dont think we would go back

I recently visited this restaurant on a business trip. The restaurant can be found very close to the London Bridge statiion. The building is quite impressive being on a street corner however it's internal decor is quite basic other than the interesting hexagonal fish tank. I visited around 6pm and found to be the sole visitor. As such the service... More

The information regarding this restaurant is wrong. I attempted to visit the Great Wall only to find that it is closed on a Sunday.

Found the restaurant by chance will exploring the Tower Bridge area, looked nice from outside and menu seemed reasonable so decided to give it a chance. Food was nice and staff friendly but nothing extraordinary. Nice meal but won't rush back on next trip to London

We came on the recommendation of the TA reviews. I seriously don't think we are talking about the same restaurant!! The food - the aubergine with garlic sauce was covered in an inch of oil! The seafood & meat special noodles had one piece of chicken and two tiny pieces of pork, admittedly it did have prawns & squid. The... More

My girlfriend and I are staying at the Hilton at Tower Bridge for her Birthday, we thought we would stay local on the Saturday evening and chose this restaurant as it is 20m from the hotel door! Wow... The atmosphere was perfect, the staff were efficient, friendly and attentive... The food was absolutely beautiful, as a couple that spends a... More
