From Wok to Plate in a blink of an eye!

Came here for casual dinner on a Sunday night. Restaurant wasn't too busy and our food arrived very quickly - this is how it should be for Chinese food! Had the cliche Sweet and Sour Chicken, Duck Cantonese style and Egg Fried Rice. Portions are a little bit small for their price tags but I came... read more

I have been here a few times and have always had good experiences, but last night's dinner experience was fraught with rude staff that neither I, nor my dining companions, will ever return. When I went to the Baker Street branch for dinner, the staff were extremely polite. They gave me the dim sum menu and told me that although... More

We went for lunch three families comprising six adults, three toddlers and two babies. We ate deliciously, were well served by the staff and all at a reasonable price of 145£, service included. We queued from 11:40 to enter at noon and it was worth it! We will certainly go again.

My sister is a regular there for dim sum. No question about it very good dim sum, you would not be disappointed. The restaurant opens at 11:00am and there is already a line up waiting to go into the restaurant. If you go early when they open you can get a table. I guess if you go later it is... More

As this restaurant serves shark fin soup I encourage you to go elsewhere. 100 million sharks are killed each year in cruel ways solely for their fins. It's not on their menu but they still serve it.

Offering some great Dim Sum, this restaurant located near Bayswater is definitely a place worth visiting. Do be aware though, queues can get quite lengthy so I would try to pre-book in advance if you can!

I decided on this restaurant after reviews on tripadvisor. On a street with some questionable take-away places, you just have to walk through the front doors to know this one is different. The waiter who took my take-away order was in a tuxedo! I ordered the kung pao shrimp, an order of breaded deep fried shrimp, and some egg fried... More

My family and I are regulars at the restaurant. They serve delicious dimsum and has good customer service! The staff all recognise us by name. They don't accept bookings so be prepared to wait for a table if you go on weekends.

rather impressive with good service, wide choice or even rather complex meal - heavy on the design not so convincing on the taste - rather go for a simpler Chinese in the area as rather expensive (abalone not worth trying...)

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!!

Staying in Notting Hill

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.
