First they told that it's ok to BYO drink, but when we got it, they said you have to order at least 2 course per person. Then we said ok, we won't open it, they said we have to order 2 courses anyway or have it takeaway. It defo should have been said on the menu or just before. We... More

I watched the 2 diners eating at the table near the window and they looked happy so decided to give it a go. The Special dim sum were ok but with the exception of the chilli chicken 'bits' the rest were missing fillings. half a small frozen prawn per dim sum at 4 for £5, the fish ones seemed to... More

Love this little place. Dim sum is excellent, service nice. It's BYO which is great. You def go here for the amazing dim sum, not the ambiance. It's small, noisy and tables are v close together. So long as you know that, go and enjoy the excellent food.

It's a small restaurant, I like It. It was a little bit hard to order, but I'm not a picky guy. So if you like traditional Chinese food yougonna like it as well.

Went to this place for the first time as I could not be bothered with a journey into central London to Chinatown - I have a couple of preferred spots there. Was surprised with the quality of the dim sum here, clearly prepared by an experienced dim sum shīfu. The staff were super friendly and the vibe was relaxed. Will... More

This is everything you want a small dim sum cafe to be. Two people who clearly love food, prepping, frying and steaming dim sum for quick and casual diners. Imagine a greasy spoon cafe on the high street, then change everything inside to a really nice place to go for dim sum, that's what it's like. Recommended!

The dumplings are perfect. The staff is super friendly, especially in comparison with the nearby Thai restaurant Sigburi. The only negative is the duck dish. Unfortunately 50% of the duck consisted of bones and fat. The restaurant could also improve the decoration, which is so simlpistic that it lacks in identity. They don't sell alcohol (unfortunately), so bring your own... More

Dimsum is pretty good, though not the best I've had in London. Service is lovely and very friendly, it's a neighbourhood staple and is very basic inside. Loved the BYO though (there's an off licence next door). Went on a Friday night and didn't have to wait too long for a table, though it's quite small inside and tables are... More

This could be a good eaterie as it's run by nice people, has a good location, and a half decent dining area. But what sort of business does it want to be? When I was there, there were some fairly undesirable guys hanging around the entrance, almost encouraged to come inside and eat...If they had the same rather tasteless Chinese... More
