“Genuine Hong Kong expatriate fare”“delicious dim sum” and “out-of-this-world Peking duck” – has won a sizeable following for this London offshoot of a top-ranking HK venue. Its ratings slipped a notch this year though, amidst continuing concerns (including amongst fans) that it’s rather “pricey”; and also on the basis of the odd meal that was just plain “disappointing”. It enjoys the unusual setting of a converted church – St Thomas’s, near Borough Market and the Shard: “beautiful” (if a mite “sterile”).

“Best Peking duck ever, other than top restaurants in Beijing!”“and unbelievably the dim sum was even better!!” – this “great reinvention of the Michelin-starred Hong Kong favourite” occupies an “amazingly converted church” (St Thomas’s in London Bridge), and even though its most ardent fans admit that it’s “pricey” the “cost isn’t insane, and for once the hype is right”. Service, though, is “a bit chaotic at times”.

Summary

Hong Kong comes to London in autumn 2017 when this authentic Cantonese/dim sum chain (with 10 sites across HK) opens its first UK branch, in St Thomas Church in London Bridge. Chef Daren Liew was, until recently, executive sous chef with the Hakkasan Group.
