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”.

“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”.

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
