“The freshly made dumplings are almost perfect” at this smart, modern hotel restaurant overlooking gentrifying Shepherd’s Bush Green. Since opening in 2014, it has been the unlikely venue for “some of the best dim sum in London”. “This standard of Chinese food is hard to find here – it’s where I take friends from Singapore when they visit – and they’re impressed.”

“Excellent upmarket Chinese food” and “great dim sum” may seem out of place on grungy Shepherd’s Bush Green, but this joint “can claim to be one of London’s top Oriental restaurants – it’s where I take my Singaporean friends when they visit”. The venue – a plush modern hotel, part of a Hong Kong-owned group – makes for a rather “cold ambience” by some standards, but there are no complaints about the scran.

“Excellent dim sum and Peking duck” backed up by a “laudably original menu” and “beautiful presentation” make this slick operation – overlooking grimy Shepherd’s Bush Green – a culinary standout in West London. The setting, in an upmarket modern hotel, is also “unexpectedly smart for SheBu”.

For 31 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).

"I don’t really feel qualified to judge Chinese food, but thoroughly enjoyed our meal apart from the overcooked fish. Definitely will try again. "
