Harden's survey result
“If you want Chinese food at its best”, numerous reporters award top marks to Bernard Yeoh’s luxurious Mayfair fixture, which has held a Michelin star for the last 10 years now, and which is unusual in boasting a heavyweight wine list featuring many of the world’s most famous vintages. Even those who say it’s “brilliant” acknowledge it’s decidedly “not cheap” however.
Not every Chinese restaurant features bottles of Chateau Pétrus on its wine list at over £8,000, and Bernard Yeoh’s swish, contemporary Mayfair institution remains one of London’s most ambitious Asian venues. Practically all reports agree on the high pedigree of its cuisine, but even fans can acknowledge some dishes seem very fully priced.
“A very modern take on Chinese cuisine” excites devotees of Bernard Yeoh’s “stylish and contemporary” Mayfair fixture, one of London’s top Asian venues. “I’m not sure it is genuine Chinese rather than influenced by China, but presentation is artistic and there are really interesting menu choices”. “Eyewatering” prices “befit the location” however, as does the heavyweight wine list which features many famous French names.
Bernard Yeoh’s Mayfair fixture feels too “international and expensive” for some tastes (it’s not everywhere you can drink a £7,500 bottle of 1990 Chateau Pétrus with your crispy duck…), but its “Chinese cuisine with a south east Asian twist” (and many other influences besides – there’s a selection of Wagyu dishes for example) ranks amongst London’s best.
