Summary

Watching take-offs and landings at London City Airport provides distraction at this dock-side Chinese near Royal Albert Dock DLR, which continues to divide opinion between fans who hail its “top dim sum” and sceptics who feel it’s merely “average”. Sadly, everyone agrees that “neither service, nor other elements of the experience live up to the food”.

Summary

“Views of City Airport and the Albert Dock are perhaps the best feature of this obscurely-situated Docklands Chinese”, overlooking the water. Fans “love this place” and say its “dim sum is second to none”, but others feel “the food quality has become average at best”.

Summary

“An interesting waterside location near City Airport helps justify the trek to this obscure Chinese in deepest Docklands”, where “watching the planes take off opposite” provides a moving backdrop to a meal. A “spacious and convivial” venue, it offers “solidly good (without being quite top-drawer and fusion-y) dim sum” at “very reasonable prices”.
