Walked here from the Hilton Hotel one evening. Excellent service with varied menu. We had mixed starters and then a variety of main meals. Would highly recommend a visit here.

Went with family on a mid-afternoon Sunday for dim sum. Seated really quickly. We ordered around 13 different dishes and were never kept waiting for dishes to arrive. It's a nice place by the river to walk off the food afterwards! Decent prices and portion sizes are good. Highly recommended.

The food was absolutely amazing so many flavours to experience, the dim sum are fantastic, the ribs fall off the bone, the duck is full of flavour. Everything I ate was lovely... More

No MSG - no problem! Amazing, delicious and fresh, fresh, fish! I am a non meat eating, migraine sufferer - nightmare customer for a Chinese restaurant, but not here. The food was freshly cooked, prawns, scallops and sea bass that were so delicious and tasty with traditional Chinese spices but without the headache of added MSG. Proof that nothing is... More

Visited the Lotus Floating Restaurant to gather as a family and be introduced to Amelia who is now a month old. The food was excellent and the ambience is great and it helps to have a Chinese speaker at the table to order the food and explain what it is. We were only there for lunch but by the time... More

Good dim sum by any Chinese restaurant's standards, at affordable prices. You can easily eat well enough for around £15 per person. Nice location as well, on the water, and the usual not so friendly staff often found at Chinese restaurants. All in all not a bad place to eat in Canary Wharf

Highly recommended authentic Hong Kong floating restaurant experience in London Docklands close to Canary Wharf and West Ferry Mall. Dinner was delicious and location fabulous. The restaurant is spacious and we easily got a table on the Saturday evening we visited without a reservation.
