Summary

The very acme of dining glamour when it opened in 1968 – Sir Terence Conran once hailed it as a breakthrough in restaurant design – this expensive Chinese stalwart in Knightsbridge is now showing its age. “I used to love this place but the food is now old-fashioned and hasn’t kept up with the times” is the politest of this year’s feedback. Other reporters are blunter: “remarkable it continues to have any customers…”

Summary

All reporters have nice things to say about the cuisine at this datedly glamorous A-lister, near 1 Hyde Park, whose heyday was in the 1960s and 1970s. It can, however, seem “insanely expensive for what is just some nice Chinese food”.

Summary

Scant reports this year at this datedly-glamorous A-lister of yesteryear near 1 Hyde Park, which built an international brand in the ’60s with its formula of Chinese cuisine served by Italian waiters. In recent years its food has been consistently tolerable, but very pricey, so we have felt able to keep last year’s rating, although feedback was too thin to rate it properly.

Summary

A Knightsbridge institution since 1968, its upscale Beijing cuisine still attracts diners; complaints too however as usual that it’s “massively overpriced for what’s essentially average Chinese food”.
