Fans of this “very popular, consistently above-average” family group – with venues in Knightsbridge, Mill Hill, Wandsworth Common and Esher – say it’s “on another level to most Chinese restaurants”, with “the best cuts of meat and fresh-as-you-like fish and vegetables”. Even fans, though, perennially complain about the prices: “still the best Chinese around, still the most expensive”. These days, a more affordable option might be the delivery/takeaway-only sites in Swiss Cottage, Battersea, Richmond and Wimbledon.

“A huge cut-above a ‘regular’ Chinese!” – this “well-run”, well-established family-run chain in Knightsbridge, Balham and Mill Hill (and Esher) offers an “upmarket” experience that’s “always reliable”: “not cheap but worth it”. “If feels like a bit of a 1990s throwback and I like it for that!”

“Reliable, good quality, pricey but satisfying” – such virtues have long attracted fans to these “old favourite”, family-owned Chinese stalwarts in Knightsbridge, Balham and Mill Hill. Viewed from the other side of the coin, they serve “satisfactory but unadventurous fare that seems somewhat overpriced and lacks edginess”.

For 31 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).
