Summary

This spacious, classic Cantonese refectory near Baker Street scores well for “fun, good food and great service”, while fans claim it does the “best dim sum in London”. There’s a “large and varied menu, with lots of interesting dishes” and a very “70s vibe”.

Summary

This well-established Cantonese near Baker Street is something of a dim sum Mecca, and although it’s arguably “rather dated” and has seen “erratic swings in quality over the years”, it wins nothing but praise this year for “food that’s always good”. “Brusque” service “is a reminder you’re in a Chinese venue” but “staff are patient with kids”.

Summary

“Divine, juicy, well-stuffed, fresh mouthfuls of pure joy!” – that’s the “delicious dim sum” at this “large”, well-established Chinese venue, near Baker Street, “frequented by lots of Chinese”. Its ratings suffered, though, from a couple of disappointing reports this year.

Summary

“Giant green and gold fixture”, near Baker Street, that’s “well-favoured by the Chinese community”, particularly for dim sum; it’s not as highly rated as it once was however – dishes can be “matchless” but they can also be “so-so” nowadays.

"Went for a post-theatre meal. Ordered two dishes, took way too long both to order and for food to arrive. Food itself was small in portion and very average for the price. Will not rush back."

"The cooking is right back on form but the service varies in one meal from excellent to appalling. Still a great Chinese restaurant."
