Description: Please note that bookings are highly recommended as seating is very limited. Come for clean, healthy, authentic Cantonese food; from lobster to stuffed peppers and aubergines to freshly steamed fish. Make sure to book for a large party! David, a highly sought-out chef, teaming with his wife Betty, created this "hidden gem" in August 2012. Working together, they restored and captured the exhilarating tastes straight from Hong Kong and produce authentic Chinese and Cantonese cuisine for everyone to enjoy. Using only the freshest and highest quality ingredients sourced locally, our menu is always changing depending on season and availability. Some dishes on our Specialities Menu require prior notice of 48 hours. Our talented chefs will be happy to cater to any special dietary requests, and will cook each dish specifically for you. Try something new than the stereotypical Chinese takeaway food altered to suit the foreign taste buds.

This restaurant from the outside does not immediately attract your attention. Once inside what a delight. The food is beautifully cooked. We have also gone back after ordering some of the menu that needs more time for preparation and it is well worth the wait.

“Delicious! ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2013 via mobile

We visited B&Ds Kitchen last night after finding it on here. What a cute little place! A tiny restaurant with room for about 12 diners at a time ; there was a group of four in when we arrived around 8pm and then another couple walked in about an hour after us so it was pleasantly full. The food was delicious and our hosts very friendly and attentive suggesting new dishes for us to try. The three of us opted for Hot Sand chicken, special chow mein, chicken with cashew nuts and rice and bean sprouts. For starters we shared honey glazed ribs, crispy greens and spring rolls. All of it was delicious! The bill came to about £45 for three of us including soft drinks - this is a bring your own bottle restaurant - bargain! The specials look amazing but there is advance ordering required for those so we didn't try any. I would definitely recommend this place, hope I get to come back! Xx

Cracking food and very attentive. Only downside was its also a takeaway so a lot of people coming in and out but still enjoyed it and also very affordable.

“Thank you fellow trip adviser's!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2013

Visited here last night,on a wet and windy Sunday evening. To be greeted by sweet charming staff, whom I assume where the owners, we where nearly an hour early for our reservation but wasn't asked to leave and come back, just made us very welcome. I had ordered two specialities, the lobster and the roast pork char Sui. I was asked if would like to come and have a look in the kitchen at "my" lobster before he was due to be cooked, to see the freshness of it, he was very fresh and very much alive! It was cooked to perfection, succulent and meaty in a beautiful spring onion and ginger and oyster sauce, superb! And a bargain at 20 quid! The Roast Pork Char Sui was also superb, soft juicy, thinly sliced pork in a delicious sauce, served on a bed of bean sprouts. We also had spring rolls for starters, which where divine, not at all greasy like most restaurants, but crispy and light. We also had salt and chilli chips, fried rice 2 soft drinks each, all for 40 quid! Absolute bargain! We booked b&d's because of the rave reviews here on trip advisor, so thank you very much, next time we up from London, we shall certainly visit again, best Chinese meal we have ever had. Thank you B&D's kitchen, well done! PS, you can bring you're own bottle, no corkage fee!

“Great service, price and food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2013

We came from Suffolk to visit family and had a lovely meal here, the waitress was very informative of all the food and gave us information on what to do and where to go whilst here! A small but lovely place with excellent food. Would highly recommend.
