A “big Chinese restaurant” – the London outpost of a Shanghai group – which serves Cantonese fare that’s “really good and not too pricey”. It occupies part of an office block near Portman Square in Marylebone – a setting that “can seem a bit sterile”.

“Good food”, including dim sum, makes this modern Chinese an “always dependable” option in Marylebone, although the setting – an office block near Portman Square – isn’t an attraction in itself.

The food still rates well at this modern Chinese, although the office-block setting near Marylebone’s Portman Square generates very little enthusiasm.

North of Portman Square, in a somewhat nondescript office block setting (complete with atrium seating for some diners), this Marylebone Chinese has won a big reputation for its innovative cuisine. Its ratings were more middling this year, however, with one or two reporters feeling that “even if the food is exceptional, it does not warrant such high prices”.

For 33 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).

"A large Chinese restaurant in a part of town (Baker St) not short of large, Chinese restaurants. The food is decent, but not outstanding or surprising, and because it is a large space, with wide spaces between the tables, there’s just not much atmosphere. "
