Summary

“If you love Hong Kong, you’ll feel right at home” at these “wonderfully garish” Cantonese stalwarts, which attract “overwhelming queues” to enjoy what many fans consider “the best dim sum in London”; service, though, is of the “couldn’t-give-a-fig” variety.

Summary

“Fantastic, Hong Kong-quality dim sum” – many reporters would say “the best in town” – makes this “unwelcoming” Cantonese chain a London benchmark; the “garish” decor “may not be what you’d have at home, but fits the occasion brilliantly”.

Summary

“Some of the best dim sum in the capital” – these “ever-reliable” Chinese benchmarks remain a “rushed” and “very crowded” weekend staple for legions of reporters; “service with a smile is an alien concept”, though, and the “darkly shiny” decor is not to all tastes.
