Summary

“Dim sum are top class – beautifully presented and all of them delicious” – at this slick, “fun” and hugely popular Chinese-inspired duo (originally created by Hakkasan and Wagamama founder, Alan Yau), whose stylish looks are “verging on bling, but well done”. Both branches score highly, although the well-established Soho original still has the edge over the relatively new Broadgate Circle branch. “Great cocktails” too – “their tea is also exquisite”. Top Tip: cool terrace in EC2.

Summary

“Fabulously tasty dim sum with a modern twist” and “slick” styling fuel the fun at this incredibly popular and vibey, Chinese-fusion duo, with the more moody Soho original still outscoring its big and “bright” Broadgate Circle spin-off. Service is the weakest link – it can be “somewhat haphazard”.

Summary

“A happy combo of exquisite dim sum and glamorous settings” creates massive popularity for these “staple” but still “on-trend” pan-Asians. Fans of the Soho original dispute the virtues of the basement (“dark” and “clubby”) and the ground floor (“lovely openness”), while the “bright and light branch above Broadgate Circle” is proving “a great addition to the CIty”.

Summary

“Perfectly executed” and “creative” dim sum – probably “the best in London” – have made the “trendy” Soho basement original a “classic” destination, and its new more “airy” sibling in Broadgate fully lives up. W1 also boasts an “HK-style pâtisserie selection – both breathtakingly beautiful and very delicious”.

"Not quite past its sell by date but no longer in its glory days, the food is still pretty good and service pretty haphazard. Immediate upset attempt on wine was annoyingly predictable "
