Summary

Bernard Yeoh’s Mayfair fixture feels too “international and expensive” for some tastes (it’s not everywhere you can drink a £7,500 bottle of 1990 Chateau Pétrus with your crispy duck…), but its “Chinese cuisine with a south east Asian twist” (and many other influences besides – there’s a selection of Wagyu dishes for example) ranks amongst London’s best.

Summary

This luxurious Chinese is “all a bit Mayfair”, especially its Claret-heavy wine list, non-oriental waiters, and prices off the Richter scale; perhaps surprisingly though, it’s generally “worth it”.

Summary

Some “exemplary and exquisite” meals won stellar ratings this year for this Mayfair Chinese “classic”; the interior can “lack atmosphere”, though, and prices are “off the scale”.

Summary

The cuisine at this swanky Mayfair Chinese really is “truly exceptional”; prices more than measure up, though, and its following among reporters is relatively modest.
