Summary

“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”.

Summary

“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”.

Summary

“A cut above the usual Chinese” – this quality chain is “always reliable” and its two-year-old Balham branch is proving “a marvellous addition to the area”; never a cheap option, some fans now fear they are “in danger of pricing themselves out of the market”.

Summary

“Consistency” and “very good quality” have long made it “worth paying the money” for these comfortable Chinese stalwarts, in Knightsbridge and Mill Hill; but the sentiment that it “doesn’t quite hit the high notes it did” was more in evidence this year.
