Food and service really good. Expensive but that’s reflected in the high quality food. Weird thing happened at the end of the meal which ruined the evening. There was a bloke that cleared the entire restaurant. I thought I could hear a) a lion roaring...b) someone drowning in the Bath c) someone chocking to death. Staff laughed it off but it went on for 30m and louder and louder. Weird Chinese guy sitting alone trying to regurgitate an eel 🤮 Not the restaurant’s fault although if I were the Maitre’D I’d have asked him wtf was gaping down! 🚷More

Food was excellent, service wasn’t. Staff wasn’t attentive, there was a time during my meal I needed something and I had to shout twice to get somebody come out from the back, the place was left without a single staff on sight, quiet extraordinary. We’ve...got charged sixteen pound and fifty nine pence service charge.More

I recently visited the Bright Courtyard for lunch and found a very sad atmosphere (empty/very little staff etc,). It was one of my favourites until I had a run-in with Steve the manager. He was churlish, unhelpful and almost refused to give me advice and...guidance. I asked him about a choice of table and he said "make your mind up" and proceeded to tell me that this is what he tells his children. His whole approach was a turn-off and when we ended up arguing, he told me I would not be served there again (this is a restaurant that I have visited regularly over the years-I was not a first-timer!). He is clearly a former low-level waiter who has been allowed to wear a monkey suit (more monkey than suit...). It is a pity because I know the other staff to be friendly but he is arrogant, opinionated and is able single-handedly to lose a respected client who has always respected the staff there. My feeling is that the restaurant is suffering because of him (it clearly is suffering given the emptiness). When I went to Royal China across the road, it was buzzing, so there is clearly no lack of customers looking for Dim SumMore

It was during Chinese New Year so the place is absolutely spilling people everywhere. Food quality uneven, some good dishes, some not good at all. Service was so slow - we booked the table 8.45pm and we did not get to our table until about...9.30pm. Eventually food arrived (even with prebooked and preordered menu). The meal finally was completed by 11pm with everyone almost falling asleep at the table!More

Terrible service. Terrible waiting time. More than 2 hours for only 3 dishes. Terrible quality of food. Most look rubbish and leftovers. Premium price tag for this trash place? NO DO NOT GO

I must’ve gone to another restaurant from the reviews that are posted below. The young waiter was courteous and saw us to our table. we went through the menu options ordered drinks and I asked for the food to come out in waves so that...it is delivered piping hot straight from the wok onto the table. I have nothing but good things to say about all the food served was on point scrumptious and my best Chinese in LondonMore

Biggest rip off ever ordered food for delivery ordered the crab noodles there was not a piece of crab in it just plain noodles and the salt and pepper prawns 4 pcs came. Not worth a tenth of the price they charge. Beware

Untrained staff and rude manager, food was not as advertised. Overall bad experience. If there is a zero star, i will definitely use it

I ordered from this restaurant many times and the food was good quality. BUT recently they introduced 50% off your bill and guess what you get 50% in the container. Not only that but the quality is extremely poor I had to throw out the...dumplings as they were off. Everything was just awful they must be going under and if not it won’t be long if they serve food like that. They should be kicked off DeliverooMore

Marylebone offers what so many London neighbourhoods
cannot: a village feel coupled with urban convenience.
Much of its success rests in its location. Wedged
between the northeastern corner of Hyde Park and the
southern end of Regent's Park and with a number of
Tube stations within easy reach, Marylebone is as
pedestrian friendly as Central London gets. The
bustling shopping mecca of Oxford Street separates it
