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.
“High-quality”, family-owned Chinese venues (in Balham, Knightsbridge and Mill Hill), long known as an “expensive but good” treat. The branch near Harrods especially is seen as “not as good as it once was” though: in particular “the dated decor could use a makeover”.
“A cut above the usual Chinese” – this quality chain is “always reliable” and its two-year-old Balham branch is proving “a marvellous addition to the area”; never a cheap option, some fans now fear they are “in danger of pricing themselves out of the market”.
“Consistency” and “very good quality” have long made it “worth paying the money” for these comfortable Chinese stalwarts, in Knightsbridge and Mill Hill; but the sentiment that it “doesn’t quite hit the high notes it did” was more in evidence this year.
“The food is exceptionally good, but it’s a shame the prices are so high” – the story from these “upmarket” Chinese veterans, in Knightsbridge and Mill Hill, never really changes.
