Very good food. Worth the travel!

Roast Duck Cantonese Style: Awesome and succulent. Lemon Chicken: Very nice. Good for non-spicy food lovers. Mixed seafood with coriander soup: Very fresh and nice!

The food was OK, far cry from San Francisco though, bad service. My credit card info was stolen and somebody tried to charge 2000 dollars worth of stuff at Selfridges Be careful!!

Went for dinner on Monday eve, the restaurant was semi-full. I did not see any bad / indifferent service - it was OK, quick and efficient. Surely, waiters are reserved and not too talkative - but never unfriendly. Food was great! Fried smoked chicken was crispy and flavourful....Szechuan Prawns juicy and not overcooked - with great sauce, full of flavour... More

Went there for lunch today. Food was being delivered three or four times to our table, and each time the food was simply put on the table, with not a word being spoken by the Waitresses, they did not even look at us, simply dropping a plate of food on our table whilst passing. Indifferent, uncaring and frankly speaking, unacceptable... More

Second and last time we went. I don't mind waiting 30min to get a table but at least you need service to be nice and it's the worst I've had in London going out every week for the last 10 years. No welcome, no eye contact, no smile, no thank you, no interest in us and our lunch at all.... More

What an attitude! Like being bullied by mindless drones - not listening to diner requests or paying attention to what's happening in the restaurant. The food is good and is the only reason for giving any money at all to these people. I was sorely tempted to have the "service" element of the bill removed because there really wasn't any... More

Something a little different to your average Chinese restaurant. They don't take bookings but as the restaurant is fairly big you don't wait long for a table. You'll notice the high percentage of Chinese people eating in the restaurant which is a great reference for them. A little tip, the restaurant is at its busiest just after 12midday as it... More

I visited with family for Chinese New Year after reading in an article that the food was great. However from the start this restaurant was a disappointment. Despite having booked more than a month in advance, 5 of us were squeezed onto a table only suitable for 3 - during the whole meal I had to ask other people to... More

Have been three times to the place as the reviews are good however i'm very disappointed with the food. It... More

Neighborhood Profile
Notting Hill
As West London's friskiest corner, Notting Hill more than manages to retain plenty of the same appeal that's brought the affluent area so much worldwide attention. In this attractive cobblestoned neighborhood, a delectable variety of eateries, independent shops, galleries and street vendors offer a delightful window into how to live the good life in London, with each presenting visitors with an experience that's a little more idiosyncratic and endearing than the last. Travelers looking to forage for antiques should be sure to visit the Portobello Road Market on Saturdays, the largest antiques market in the United Kingdom.
