The food was very tasty and the sauces were especially good and lacked that typical monosodium glutamate taste and consistency often found in Chinese food, service was efficient and friendly. I will certainly be back. The set price dinner menu is a shade under £40 per head, so probably best kept for a special occaision.

This is the best Chinese food ever served by friendly efficient staff in opulent surroundings. No where else can match it and we have eaten in many Chinese restaurants in the Uk and around the world. The menu is refreshingly different but not too over powering with a selection of new dishes and old favourites. There is something for everyones palate. Favourites for us are crispy lamb with lettuce, soft shell crabs, crispy duck and the old favourite sweet and sour - but not as you know it.
Wine list is extensive but a good claret from Berry Bros is ideal at £25.
We have been many times and each time it has been faultless. On a visit this week with family which included our 4 week old grandson the staff could not have been more attentive. Cant wait to go back when next in London.

We loved this restaurant when it opened, the service was fun and witty, the food was great. On my budget this restaurant was saved for treats only, being delicious and expensive. Now its just expensive... we have visited twice with like minded friends in the last few months and the unanimous decision is never again. The management has changed, the food was badly cooked, the ambience lost ..sadly -another local restaurant that started brilliantly but hasn't kept it up and fails to meet the standards of much cheaper restaurants in china town.
The last time we went none of us felt well the next day.
