Exquisite food! The most traditional Chinese you will find this side of the planet. Jason Dong is running a fine establishment

I think it’s over rated. It’s not as authentic as people say and the food is very oily. The meat is a bit chewy and I wouldn’t say it’s cheap either. Extra Service charge in the end.

We made a reservation, and were glad we did. Place was packed. Food was good, service was a little slow, but i think its becuse it was a full house. Really enjoyed the food, prices were reasonable, would definitely come back.

Food was ok but one of the male staff was absurd. He kept persuading us to order pricy alcohol and after we said no he never came back again (even though we have ordered normal beverages) and didn't give us tap water we asked. And...More

For a glimpse of Georgian and Victorian London at its
most pristine, or a peek into what's apt to be the
next big global trend, the hipster zone of
Spitalfields can provide hours of amazement. Around
the clock, this is a haven for early morning bargain
hunters sizing up its street markets, foodie foragers
throughout the day, or late night revelers hitting
some of London's most popular bars and clubs.
