Summary

“Very good… but not as good as A Wong” is a common view on Andrew Wong’s late-2018 opening in Bloomberg’s HQ, which provides “a very different experience and menu from the Pimlico original”. Foodwise the emphasis is not on dim sum, but on plates of Cantonese roast meats, and, though “refined” with “lovely clean tastes”, results seem “quite pricey”. And the interior, though slick, is a trifle “dull” to some tastes. Still, it’s “another ‘tick’ for the City’s rise as a dining destination”, and the overall verdict is that it’s “still well worth a visit”. Top Tip – good value ‘Sunday roast’.

Summary

This much-heralded venture from chef Andrew Wong opened at Bloomberg’s new European HQ in the City in September 2018. (For restaurant history anoraks, Kym’s was the name of Andrew’s parents’ Pimlico restaurant of almost three decades’ standing, which he renamed A Wong in 2012; it was also one of the first ever establishments visited and reviewed for Harden’s London Restaurants 1992, our very first print edition). The new venture sits alongside 10 other restaurants (including Koya, Caravan and Vinoteca) in the new Bloomberg Arcade.

For 28 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. This year diners have submitted over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK.
