This “huge, traditional Chinese banqueting hall” – a rather 1970s space near Baker Street tube – can be “a revelation” to newbies. “It does all the typical Cantonese dishes” from a menu boasting more than 300 dishes, and is particularly well-known for its “wonderful dim sum”. “The service runs like clockwork… as it has to”.

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”.

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”.

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).
