There’s no denying the “seductive” pull of this opulent venture (founded in 2015 by Alan Yau and nowadays owned by an anonymous Turkish family) which brings a slice of 1920s Shanghai decadence to Mayfair. But while fans “love the dim sum selection and vibes on a busy night”, saying it “ticks all the boxes”, its “off-the-scale prices” inspire outrage amongst many reporters, and raise a suspicion that beneath the glamorous veneer, “it’s just a bog standard Chinese”.

With its “sexy”, “1920s-Shanghai” interior, Alan Yau’s “opulent” Mayfair blow-out offers a “decadent” combination of “delicious” Chinese cuisine and regular entertainment in a “vibey” setting that’s definitely “different”. Sceptics dismiss it as a “ridiculously OTT” display “for people with more money than taste”, but for most reporters the only downside is that “Dick Turpin turns up at the same time as the bill!”

“The opulence is astonishing and so seductive”, say fans of Alan Yau’s ultra-“glamorous” homage to 1920’s Shanghai, complete with live music, in Mayfair – “you could lose yourself here for hours”. Even those who acknowledge a “wonderful experience” however, find it “shockingly expensive” given the unexceptional Chinese cuisine and to a few reporters the vibe is plain “horrible”“like a brothel for billionaires”.

“A night out in 1920’s Shanghai, with live music and dancing” is the aim at Alan Yau’s barmily “opulent” Mayfair newcomer (on the site that was Automat, RIP). Service is “amazing”, but the luxurious cuisine (Peking Duck, caviar, dim sum) is “bone-crunchingly expensive” yet “nothing spectacular”.
