Harden's says

The long-awaited replacement to Matsya (RIP) comes from Jamavar and Bombay Bustle creator Samyukta Nair, and is inspired by 1920s Shanghai; former Hakkasan chef Peter Ho will oversee the high-end, modern Chinese menu.

* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.

From Jamavar and Bombay Bustle creator Samyukta Nair (who studied in China), this September 2021 replacement to Matsya (RIP) is inspired by 1920s Shanghai and the three-floor restaurant is, apparently, inspired by a reimagination of the building as the secret London residence of Empress Mimi, which means ‘secret’ in Mandarin. Former Hakkasan chef Peter Ho oversees a high-end, modern Chinese menu, including wood-roasted Peking duck. For cocktails, head to The Moon Bar.

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).

"We went there slightly apprehensive that we would be overwhelmed by pretension. However, the dining rooms are beautiful. Service would have received top marks had we not had to ask three times for water to be delivered to our table. The fabled Peking Duck would have been even better were there warmers on the table or, at the very least, had it been served on hot plates. As it was, a combination of the (excellent) carving at the table and unwarmed plates meant that the food was soon cold."

"This is not your average Chinese. You MUST preorder the Peking duck. £80 may seem expensive but it is almost a meal in itself. All the flavours were unusual and delicious"
