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”.

An “uninspiring location” – a Paddington Basin basement – has not held back this large and attractively decorated Cantonese: nowadays very well-established and “always very crowded”, especially at weekends, for its “amazing dim sum”, of a quality “really quite different to the majority of Chinese restaurants”. Top Tip: “lobster noodles also brilliant”.

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).
