“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”.

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”.
“High-quality”, family-owned Chinese venues (in Balham, Knightsbridge and Mill Hill), long known as an “expensive but good” treat. The branch near Harrods especially is seen as “not as good as it once was” though: in particular “the dated decor could use a makeover”.
Good Earth Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Friendly service. A comfortable option. A Chinese dining experience with all the edges rounded off. Always comes at a price mind."
"It's a bit 'Western' in its flavour profiles, but this 'safe' approach makes it acceptable for all the family. Why it has to be quite so expensive only they will know. If they knocked 25% off the price they might be full every night. Just saying."
"It's pricy, but it is a Chinese restaurant that you can actually go to in the evening for a quality meal. No run of the mill noodle plates here. I'm sure it would be full every night if it simply brought prices down by 20% though."
