“Killer dim sum combinations make for an experience not to forget” at this three-storey canteen-style import from NYC in Covent Garden, famous on Instagram for its prawn dish that looks like the ghosts in Pac-Man. Even some fans, though, query “why is it so expensive? The food’s great and fun and adventurous, but simply too pricey!”

Summary

A fun spin on Chinese cuisine – with an Instagrammable dim sum prawn dish that looks like the ghosts in Pac-Man – this canteen-style import from NYC (where it’s famous) has quietly arrived on a three storey site in Covent Garden with very little publicity, and a recreation of its no-bookings policy. In an initial September 2018 review, The Evening Standard’s Fay Maschler suggests prices are a little “ballsy”, ’specially as Chinatown is only a stroll away.

"Surprisingly interesting! Meeting up with an old friend to relive student experiences of Dim Sum, we were both won over by a novel approach to old favourites. Nothing was quite what was expected, although in a good way. We drunk tea - it was liunch time. We will return PS Our charming waiter was/is Spanish, a first in a Chinese restaurant fro me"
