On the first floor in Kingly Court, Carnaby, the first permanent venue for Chongqing natives Liu Qian and Charlene Liu. Their noodles in hot broth and other specialities from central-western China have been a big hit on the supperclub circuit.

"Do a couple of things really well is the ethos here. High quality noodles with spicing graded from nuclear down to wimp (they phrase it more politely). "Mild" has plenty kick enough for those who think a high street curry is spiced enough. Home made won tons melt in the mouth. speedy service, simple decor make for satisfying time. "

What the Newspaper Critics are saying

The Times

Charlotte Ivers confessed her new-found addiction to the mouth-numbing flavours of Chongqing, to which she has returned three times at this new restaurant off Regent Street, in Kingly Court.

“One bite and your whole mouth is tingling and sensitive”, she says of the “novel delight” of tasting its wontons and broth for the first time. “It is no exaggeration to say I have thought of these dumplings every day since.”

Xiaomian means little noodles and they are, Charlotte says, “perhaps the best noodles I have had in my life. On the way home I walk past a ramen restaurant and feel sad for everyone inside.”
