China Town pot luck resulted in a success

It has been many years since I had been to China Town and three of us decided to go to London for a Chinese lunch instead of our normal one near the office out of London. My job was to choose which one! I did the TA research in the knowledge that one of the three of us is particularly... read more

I thought this restaurant was quite average. Dishes were very small, prices were high. They were very conservative with chili on the dishes even though we had ordered a mix of hot and mild dishes specifically. They seemed to be concerned for our well-being even though we are seasoned spicy food eaters :) I think all of us were still... More

Very disappointed! I saw an average rating of 4.6 with some reviewers saying it was 'the best chinese they ever had', but it was very far from that! China town would've been better (and cheaper)! The food is okay, but nothing special. The peking duck was very good, but the salt and chilli prawns had no salt or chilli! They... More

My husband and I were recommended Yming by the person we rented an apartment from in Soho. We went for lunch on our 2nd day and it was very good. The service was polite, though a little listless/slow. My husband got the (good value!) lunch special with cauliflower starter and chicken entree. I got tofu spicy noodles that were also... More

We visited YMing for a late lunch on a weekday, mainly because someone had recommended it for their vegetarian options. The menu was great for vegetarians and we were spoilt for choice. We were only sorry we couldn't order more! We had dumplings and spring rolls to start and the dipping sauce with my spring rolls was fantastic, different to... More

We pre booked this restaurant before travelling to London on the strength of the Trip Advisor reviews and we were not disappointed. It is in a great location if you are going to any of the local theatres and it is very tastefully decorated. The service was extremely friendly and helpful. There is a big choice, but the waitress helped... More

We ate early pre theatre and had a fantastic meal. The waitress was very helpful & advised dishes that complemented and weren't too fiery. Duck was extremely tender. Couldn't fault a thing.

always thought what the source of trouble is, and now I believe its the price of renting real estate in a town that is growing the "average quality tourism" without any limits. Due to the charge, the place needs to recover the expense and this leaves little to no room for a fair quality dish, at an acceptable price. The... More

We were very surprised as we picked this based on trip advisor reviews (purposely avoiding the main Chinatown Gerrard Street restaurants thinking something away from the main strip would be better) We generally tend to agree with the majority opionion but I can only assume they must have just been having a bad day! Firstly the service was extremely miserable... More

Chinatown can be a bit of a gamble when it comes to finding authentic Chinese food. Yming is away from the main Gerard St low quality 'eat all you can" buffet affairs and offers excellent quality cuisine albeit at a premium. We opted for the Szechuan prawns and the restaurant's specialty pork dish, along with pak choi, noodles and rice,... More

Staying in Soho

Neighborhood Profile
Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighborhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
