Absolutely delicious and varied food. It is popular with international students studying nearby, which suggests some authenticity to the food

I have visited this restaurant on a number of occasions, this review encompasses those visits. My girlfriend being Chinese national recommends this restaurant as the best place around the city. If you like spicy food this should be on your radar of places to visit....More

Food is somewhat authentic, but a bit oily, although very good value. However, as many have noted here - that the service is a big turn-off and to some degrees, dodgy. Upon requesting the bill, we were told if we were to pay in cash,...More

Was recommended to go with a group of friends and was not disappointed. Decor very basic and as previous reviews said the service was not great - however the food was really good.

Soft fried pork fillet, dry chilli cumin chicken, that's heaven in a nutshell. Nowhere else in London will you find your tastebuds entertained to such a degree. Been to Michelin starred restaurants the world over, from Arzak to The Ledbury but this place is the...More

This is one of those hideaway places where you come out smelling like an oily wok afterwards but it was so worth it. There was a short wait for a table as it’s a small place and nowhere to wait. They serve everything family style...More

Myself and a colleague visited this restaurant for lunch and it was one disaster after another. We ordered one meat dish, one vegetarian dish and some rice to share. The first problem was that our food arrived all separately.. and late. After about 20 mins...More

As with most Chinese places, you want to come with a group so you can order lots of things and share them around. They are well-known for food from western China, so the lamb dishes are particularly good. The lamb skewers in particular are excellent...More

The food here is absolutely amazing! The restaurant is full of Asian (Chinese) customers which gives you a clue as to the authenticity of the food, it’s not posh or fine dining but more the better for it! One really feels as though one is...More

For a glimpse of Georgian and Victorian London at its
most pristine, or a peek into what's apt to be the
next big global trend, the hipster zone of
Spitalfields can provide hours of amazement. Around
the clock, this is a haven for early morning bargain
hunters sizing up its street markets, foodie foragers
throughout the day, or late night revelers hitting
some of London's most popular bars and clubs.
