DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY

My partner and i decided to try this chinese as we read some of the good reviews and We are big fans of duck and pancakes.
The price here was steep compared to where we usually go and we just assumed it would be better - it was the worst. The half duck looked more like a quarter and was roughly cut up in the box and the duck itself was very dry. They provided us with 12 pancakes - 6 of which were all soggy and stuck together - this didn't really effect our food though as there was only enough duck to fill 5 pancakes! we phoned and mentioned this and was told "well that is our portion"

We also ordered black bean ho-fun and it really was NOFUN (Trying to make light of the situation) i have never shook my head so much in disappointment whilst eating a takeaway. Tasteless and bland and the beef was very chewy and tough

My advice - Save your time and money - avoid the disappointment

Our trip to London started here and it was delightful. The staff were pleasant and attentive. We had mixed and dim sum starters, the best Peking Duck ever and three main courses! Try the Nasi Goreng - it has a real kick! Excellent quality and excellent value!

Been here a few times the past year and really enjoy the food!
Really nice place, service could be improved with a few smiles here and there but the food makes up for it!
Nice atmosphere, good location!

On a 2 night break in London we fancied a Chinese on Friday night. Staying in Kensington, the nearby restaurants were a bit pricey. Search on line found the Dragon Palace with good reviews and only one station down the underground. Found it almost opposite Earls court station. Small and unpretentious but nice atmosphere and friendly staff. Good choice of food and great value. Food was well presented and very tasty.
Only grumble was the 12.5% service charge included on the bill. When you pay by card, do the staff get the tip ??
