“If in doubt in Chinatown, you won’t go far wrong” if you choose this busy staple which is “worth the ten minute wait for dim sum and decent noodles” (and there’s also “a very interesting menu in Chinese”). “I took some fussy Chinese friends there and they were pleasantly surprised!”.STOP PRESS: A Collindale outpost opened summer 2017 (see Bang Bang Oriental).

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).
