Great Food, Horrible Service

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... read 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

I went with a friend on a Saturyda late afternoon (around 4pm) to have dim sum. We were left waiting 25minutes before anyone came to take our order, despite waving to a waitress twice to ask her to come over. The said waitress nodded at us, said something in persumably chinese to another waitress and walked off, leaving us waiting... More

Went with a group of friend to have dinner and must say that the food was excellent, we all ordered different main courses and almost all were very good, the prices are ok taking into account its London zone 1 and very central and near to Hyde Park with two tubestations nearby.

OK. Having Chinese food in London you never normally expect to have good service... Merely prompt at best. The Dim sum was OK for the most part... But one of the waitress who was serving us was rude (shoving plates across the table) no eye contact, poor attitude... However the dessert was poor and I refrained from sending back my... 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.
