“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”.

“A very old friend that continues to please” is how many long-term fans still see these “comfortable” Chinese stalwarts in Balham, Knightsbridge and Mill Hill, where the prix/qualité verdict has traditionally been that they’re “slightly overpriced, but worth it”. Ratings overall remain on the wane however, and – even if harsh critiques are rare – there’s a feeling that they’re “not as good as they used to be”.

"Nice to be back. Top quality ingredients, cooked with care and flavoured with caution. Prices remain eye-watering but on this occasion even that seemed as it should be!"

"It doesn't get much better than crispy lamb wrapped in a crispy lettuce leaf and dipped in a spicy sauce. Prices deter but other than that its a treat that rewards."
