“Better than any lobster noodles in Asia – possibly the best in the world” is the oft-repeated superlative attached to this Queensway temple to “seafood, Chinese style”. “Don’t go for the ambience”, however: “it’s noisy and the opposite of stylish” – although it’s “a bit smarter than it used to be”.
“The best lobster noodles in London (if not the world)” is the famous signature dish of this “reliable old favourite” Chinese, opposite Queensway tube. Other standout seafood dishes include crab and razor clams. It’s always full and the decor – though improved in recent years – isn’t hugely inspiring, so don’t come with a view to linger among elegant surroundings – “eat and leave for somewhere more salubrious!”
“It’s always full (the sign of a great place)”, but don’t go to this crowded Bayswater Chinese expecting much in the way of ambience. Stick to the “consistently outstanding” seafood dishes – “the best lobster noodles in the world” are the “must-try” signature dish – but “in truth, the Peking duck is a bit less good”.
“Still the go-to place for lobster noodles” – this busy, crowded Bayswater operation has long been one of the capital’s most notable spots for Chinese seafood. “Both service and ambience detract from the experience” however.
