For a while now, I have been struggling for somewhere to go for Dim Sum on Sundays, I have tried a number of places since I fell out with my previous favourite and was almost at the point of swallowing my pride and going back (see previous reviews) until I tried Mayflower this Sunday. Three of us went down there despite our reservations due to the cost and problems with finding parking in central Bristol.
There is a Car park almost outside but it only allows you to pay via your phone and for some reason I couldn't get it to accept my details. Had to park a couple of minutes away and walk back in the bracing wind we had this weekend...not a great start.
Inside the place is nicely decorated and more importantly very warm except when people enter or exit especially if they dawdle which one particular family did.
Anyway to the food, started with Siu Mai, Beef Cheong Fun, Spring Rolls and Chicken & Sweet Corn Soup. All really good and it was a large amount of soup at this place although it could have been hotter.
Then onto my favourite, Roast Duck, Roast Pork & Barbecue Pork with boiled rice and Chinese leaf. This was excellent and again a large portion all to myself accompanied by plenty of chilli oil and washed down with lots of Jasmine Tea.
A couple of gripes as with many Chinese restaurants the food does come out in a slightly haphazzard way so one of my party was sitting there watching their fried rice grow cold whilst they waited for their Lemon Chicken. Secondly the waiting staff were slow to top up the teapot with more boiling water but on balance it was a very good meal and I will certainly be back.
