“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”.

In the unusual setting of an upmarket new hotel by grungy Shepherd’s Bush Green, this contemporary dining room has won something of a name as “one of London’s better Chinese restaurants”. More downbeat reports say it’s “vibeless, not bad but not that good, and not cheap”, but more commonly it’s praised for “unexpectedly authentic cooking” – in particular “dim sum that comprehensively beats much more expensive places”.

For 30 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).
