In view of my string shoe budget I eat at lunchtime ...Their dim sum is better than what I eat in Soho. And to be honest here they are courteous. A former husband of my dad's favorite US... More

Rather elegant but not expensive. The food is tasty and served with care. The service is quick enough. Chinese tradition with some contaminations from Far East other regional cuisines

Portions were so small so we ordered an aubergine... More

This is a favorite restaurant in Queensway for lobster noodle and roast duck. Place is well run, service is good. The wine list ok and we also had good selection of other food such as fish and tofu.

I came here for lunch the other day, I had previously been to the baker street restaurant many years ago and thought I would try the original restaurant. Even though we got there just after midday the restaurant was already fairly busy. The dim sum was fantastic, it came out at a reasonable pace, not too quick. each one was... More

In this attractive cobblestoned neighborhood, a delectable variety of eateries, independent shops, galleries and street vendors offer a delightful window into how to live the good life in London, with each presenting visitors with an experience that's a little more idiosyncratic and endearing than the last.
