Went here at 6 so we could eat pre theatre. Glad we booked as it filled up quickly. Great choice of food. Tasty. Served quickly. Good rose wine and beer. My only criticism is the staff were REALLY grumpy! Cheer up, it makes a better experience for all!

We wanted Chinese food and had no idea where we wanted to go, so we headed into Chinatown from Leicester Square. Seeing the chefs making dumplings in the window appealed to us. The place was packed and we had to wait about 30 minutes. It's a very typical Chinese restaurant with no frills but the food is good. Once seated... More

Very pleased we went here rather than in one of the restaurants offering lunch buffets. Children liked the buffet idea so we ordered a selection of dumplings and some of the set menus and treated it as a buffet. A great selection of food kept on arriving, albeit in a slightly haphazard order! Highlights were the spicy pork dumplings, special... More

I lived in China for a few years - most Chinese food in England has very little to do with the Chinese food of China. Beijing Dumpling is awesome. Everyone I have taken (quite a few people) Loves it. I've been going for a few years and they've not changed. One of my very favourite restaurants in London.

I'm a big lover for dumplings and judge them very highly. I always see Chinese chefs hand making dumplings at the window, yet I never walked in. Today my friends and I decided to check it out since we are all craving for proper dumplings. I have to say this was the best decision made!! Not commenting on the other... More

I've been there for lunch on February 2017. as usual there was a small queue outside the restaurant, but it was easy to find a seat since we were only 2. The spicy xiaolongbao was very nice, I liked the flavour and the texture. So that is something that I would recommend. As for the dumpling in the soup I... More

I visited this place in London China town with my friends. We were served quickly and food very tasty. We tried a lot of different dishes and also dumplings which were fantastic. I loved also soup with prawns and curry prawns were nice and spicy. I don't like that much fried prawns we ordered though. My friends said that the... More

Here are the hits. The spicy steamed dumplings were excellent. Don't miss it, after all it's supposed to be their specialty. The Taiwanese style chicken is a classic and they did it well. We call it three cups chicken. Forget about hot and sour soup or ma po tofu. Both are not up to par. Skip!

Excellent food- took French and uk colleagues out into Chinatown, checked TAdvisor and took the plunge here- not disappointed. Everything was good- expect a queue.

Staying in Soho

Neighborhood Profile
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.
