“The service is passable and the ambience is poor” at this group in Chinatown and Bayswater – “but you only go for one thing: the barbecued/roast meat”, especially the “famous” and “perfect Cantonese roast duck and the char siu pork”. They might be “a bit too authentic these days”, but they’re still “hard to beat for Chinese food”.

“It’s a bit of a dive” with “charmless” service (“you have to queue even if you’ve booked”) but everyone raves about the “divine” duck – “the best in London” – and other “brilliant barbecued meats and roast pork” at these clattery canteens in Chinatown and Bayswater.

“Succulent and not too fatty” – the “excellent roast duck” lining the window of these “dingy”, “shabby”, “shouty” canteens in Chinatown and Bayswater is some “the tastiest in town”. There are “absolutely no frills” and “rude service is part of the traditional charm” but even so you’ll “leave with a smile on your face”. Top Menu Tip – the crispy pork belly here also rates mention.

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
