Chinese Restaurants in Covent Garden
1. Red Farm Chinese restaurant in Covent Garden 9 Russell Street - WC2B
2021 Review: “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!”
2. Shanghai Modern Chinese restaurant in Westminster Central Cross, 12 Newport Place - WC2H
2021 Review: In Chinatown’s shiny, new, Central Cross development, this “functional but bright and clean” 150-seater opened in spring 2019, and early days feedback says it’s a good, modern addition to the area. “My wife and I know Shanghai food from both Hong Kong and Shanghai – this is good, with generous portions at good-value prices”. “Staff, despite being rushed off their feet, were pleasant and helpful, though few spoke English”.
3. Baozi Inn Chinese restaurant in Westminster 25 Newport Court - WC2H
An “excellent” Chinese menu wins a small but dedicated fan club for Wei Shao’s slightly disparate group of eateries. Most prominent nowadays is its three-storey, 120-cover flagship near Borough Market. There’s also the Chinatown original (no reservations), whose main options include baozi, dumplings, wonton and noodles, and a Soho site serving northern Chinese street food, plus all-day dim sum. (There’s also a stall at Market Halls Victoria).
4. Bun House Chinese restaurant in Westminster 26-27 Lisle Street - WC2H
2021 Review: “Recently moved from Soho to Chinatown into a new, bigger and better space” – Z He and Alex Peffly’s venture is a “#1 spot for a quick, cheap meal”: “buns are filled with authentic Chinese flavours and the dough is so soft it feels like you’re eating clouds!”. Meanwhile, back at the original Greek Street site, this husband-and-wife team have transformed their old premises into Wun’s, which opened in July 2019: see also.
5. Fatt Pundit Chinese restaurant in Westminster 6 Maiden Lane - WC2E
Chinese-Indian Hakka cuisine incorporating some interesting ingredients (crab, rabbit, venison) help inspire enthusiastic (if limited) feedback for this Soho two-year-old. In late 2021, a sibling will open on a former Polpo site in Covent Garden featuring a new cocktail offering and unusual wines from organic producers across the globe.
