Summary

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!”

Summary

“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”).

Owner's description

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.
