It's not hard to tell what the speciality is at this unassuming Cantonese spot that opened quietly between lockdowns in 2020. Especially if you are a lover of Asian cuisine, this is one of London's great hidden cheap eats... actually not so hidden nowadays since the word has started to get out.
Harden's survey result
“Exactly what the name suggests” – “stunningly crafted dim sum and roast duck” – make this “minuscule” café, a short walk from King’s Cross St Pancras, one of London’s greatest cheap eats. “It’s nothing to look at, but that doesn’t matter at all as the array of different dumplings and cheung fun is truly fab, plus the prices are very reasonable”. “You can’t book and the queues can be long, so get here early or mid-late afternoon”.
For 32 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).
