Harden's survey result
For 25 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. This year diners have submitted over 60,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK.
This well-established Cantonese near Baker Street is something of a dim sum Mecca, and although it’s arguably “rather dated” and has seen “erratic swings in quality over the years”, it wins nothing but praise this year for “food that’s always good”. “Brusque” service “is a reminder you’re in a Chinese venue” but “staff are patient with kids”.
“Divine, juicy, well-stuffed, fresh mouthfuls of pure joy!” – that’s the “delicious dim sum” at this “large”, well-established Chinese venue, near Baker Street, “frequented by lots of Chinese”. Its ratings suffered, though, from a couple of disappointing reports this year.
“Giant green and gold fixture”, near Baker Street, that’s “well-favoured by the Chinese community”, particularly for dim sum; it’s not as highly rated as it once was however – dishes can be “matchless” but they can also be “so-so” nowadays.
This “bustling” and “un-anglicised” fixture, near Baker Street, serves a “wide-ranging menu, and the best dishes are the most unusual ones” – “go with Chinese friends to get the dishes not on the menu”; its “a favourite for dim sum” too – “arrive by noon, or be prepared to queue”.
Phoenix Palace Restaurant Diner Reviews
"OTT decor makes eating here like being in a Tarantino film. Dim Sum is accomplished and at a good price. Service is brisk and polite and the wine list is formidable by anyone's standards."
