This is the second times I had a dinner at Hunan, both time food has been excellent. The tasting menu is a great experience, rich of flavor and very tasting. I didn't give 5 stars as the I have not been impressed by the service, "mechanic" presentation of the dish with no interaction and 12.5% service charge discretionally applied. We... More

Hunan serves very good food. Delicious food. Really outstanding food. Brilliantly varied, delicate small portions. And it caters for vegetarians with no difficulty. So, why not a five star rating? Its about the ambience; the tables are close together and cramped. Its about the service; you don't know what you are having and the explanations from the waiting staff are... More

I had never visited before but this restaurant has been a favourite of my partner's for decades. Mr. Peng and his son Michael greeted us and made us and all customers that evening, feel welcome. There is no menu at Hunan, just a gentle enquiry at the outset, as to any allergies or dislikes. It's best to keep any dislikes... More

Booked a table for 9.00 pm for five people but did not get seated until gone 9.30 pm It is testament to the fantastic management, staff and food that at no stage did we feel annoyed about the delay. Wonderful food, wonderful service. No wonder it is so busy. My thanks in particular to Michael for taking such good care... More

I booked a table for two some time ahead and was offered only 8.30, later than I would have wished. On arrival we we stuck in the narrow corridor for 10 minutes while 4 people in front were trying for a table without a reservation. When we finally got through our table was not ready and there is nowhere to... More

This has been and still is perhaps the top Chinese Restaurants in London. The sophistication of the menu and its delivery, the ingredients completely fresh daily and the most amazing wine list to pair with Chinese cuisine which I've ever found. It is an icon of London and a model of what a fantastic Chinese meal should be all about

I must declare my hand, I'm not crazy on Chinese food. BUT, tonight's meal was wonderful. Course after small course of delicious food. And, despite one of us not eating fish and another not eating pork, the stafff took it all in their stride. Wonderful main course - superb crispy, fragrant duck - and, very obligingly, they allowed one of... More

Staying in Chelsea

Neighbourhood Profile
Wealth courses through The King's Road, Chelsea's upmarket artery of West London life packed with shops, eateries and glitzy nightspots. For people-watching at its best and luxury retail therapy that's largely unrivalled, this area cannot be missed. But if this showy street starts to overwhelm or a moment of price tag shock sends you reeling, a quick detour down pretty much any of many King's Road veins will reveal a quieter side of Chelsea. Here the stately Royal Hospital hosts its world-famous flower show, and the Thames rolls along at a lazy pace, with leafy Battersea Park and its Peace Pagoda beckoning from across the river.
