Harden's survey result
“William (the maitre d’) always has a warm welcome” at this “long-term favourite”: a Soho “oasis” whose “calm and friendly” atmosphere (“without the feeling we need to rush and free the table”) provides a quiet-but-stark contrast with the frenzy of Chinatown a couple of blocks south. Foodwise “it attempts nothing new or extraordinary – just good Chinese cooking that’s always wholesome and satisfying”, with “decent wine at un-greedy prices”.
“Ever-helpful” service is “delightful as ever at this bright Soho stalwart” – a “quiet oasis” just beyond Chinatown’s northern borders, where a very strong following of loyal regulars “will come back and back for another renewal of old acquaintance” with maitre d’ William and owner Christine. Foodwise, results are “very reliable” and “very reasonably priced”.
This “reliable stalwart of the Soho Chinese food scene” provides “an oasis of calm” just a 1-minute walk from Chinatown. “Managed by the awesome William and Christine”, its “serene” and “welcoming” style suits its older fanbase, as do the “interesting if un-challenging” dishes. Potentially under threat (like the nearby Soho Curzon) from demolition for Crossrail 2 – we hope they don’t retire: “it would be the end of an institution… and some very good food!”
“So different from Chinatown a hundred yards south!” – this “unpretentious” but “welcoming” Soho “refuge” maintains a big following thanks to its “smiling staff” (overseen by “convivial host, William”) and food that’s been “steadfastly good” over many years (if a tad “predictable”).
Those of you who already know Chinese food will make up your own minds. For those of you who don't, we will be very happy to help you choose.
The art of Chinese cuisine consists of the combination of opposing elements (Ying Yang, you might say) and it is here that we can best offer our services.
