With its “superior dim sum”, this unusually spacious modern basement venue in Paddington Basin is often tipped as “better than the Chinatown options”. From the main menu, the “great Cantonese cooking” comes in “generous portions”, with pretty much “everything of an exemplary standard” – while service is “particularly accommodating and cheerful”.

This modern basement in Paddington Basin is an excellent destination for “upmarket Chinese dining” – a “favourite for dim sum” (evenings included) and “traditional Cantonese cuisine cooked to a high standard”. “For this price range, it’s all well prepared, fresh – and better than the Chinatown options.” Top Tip: “the lobster noodles are not to be missed”.

“Consistently excellent dim sum”“very good for the price” as well – is the menu highlight at this “go-to” Cantonese destination in Paddington Basin. Despite its smart modern fit-out, however, the basement location can appear “noisy” and “soulless”.

"Doesn’t seem to have recovered post pandemic- went twice recently- took 45 mins for dim sum to arrive- under cooked sticky rice. Incorrect payment taken from card. Pity - this used to be reliable and good value. All dim sums about a £1 more"
