“Great food and service in a nice location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2009

Was greeted by friendly, attentive staff. Our waitress took our drinks orders quickly and then came back for food orders. Didn't feel at all rushed. We had dim sum sharing platter first which was delicious. Main courses were outstanding. I had one of the Chef's recommendations, beef in a pepper sauce along with egg fried rice. Loved it. Took a doggie bag home with us which the waitress was happy to sort out for us. Prices are higher than some Chinese restaurants but the food is excellent and worth it in my opinion.

“Chinese - The Best in London!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2008

We went to a very very fancy and delicious Chinese restaurant in Hampstead Heath called Goldfish that was very expensive but seriously THE best Chinese food I've ever, ever had. Even the gloopy sauce wasn't gloopy. Service staff were adorable and friendly, too. And to keep the day topical we also went to the Saatchi Gallery to see the contemporary Chinese art there, which was surprisingly good. I'm usually way jaded and don't like political art, but this was all done very well. One favourite piece was called "Love it! Bite it!" and was a mini-city of the world's "tastiest" buildings (like the Guggenheim, the Coliseum, etc.) made completely out of rawhide... My absolute favourite had to be a bunch of wax models of famous religious leaders in wheelchairs that wheeled around the gallery using sensors(?). I don't know how they did it, but it was amazing.
