You will not leave the restaurant hungry, the portions are large. We were in the area looking for a place to have lunch, this restaurant was busy and had Chinese people eating, so we chose it. Service was OK and food good, but nothing outstanding.

If you want amazing Chinese food this is the place to come so light and tasty not too salty at all unlike a English Chinese. The pork with noodles was perfect. We tried the fried shrimp too which is a big must. The service is just completely rude and ignorant but we could cope with that with such high recommendations from people we spoke too.

Undoubtedly good sui kau soup. Clearly better than any I have had in London Chinatown! Noting the comments on service one has to bear in mind sui kau and wonton etc are considered street food in South China/ Hong Kong, although rest of the menu and decor in this restaurant is clearly a mismatch..a lot better than street market!

I can understand these peoples attitude - people walk in to a place that must cost an absolute fortune to rent and demand tap water - so they don't do tap water - you have to pay for it. I agree with them - you're coming in all sweaty and maybe a bit stoned/drunk - and you expect them to wait on you for nothing when they have astronomical bills to pay! Who wouldn't be rude!!!!! The restaurant is not a fricking charity.

But....... we were paying customers........ our bill well over 100 euro for 2. We don't expect special treatment but did expect a fairly decent level of respect. We paid for our water, we had wine, we had 3 courses.

The food was absolutely beautiful, could not fault in any way whatsoever. It was drop dead gorgeous.

So don't treat everyone the same - we're not looking for a cheap date, we're willing to pay for nice food and as much as you deserve respect for the job you do, we deserve respect too for being a well paying guest of yours.

I've never wanted to get out of a place so quickly in my life. Which is a shame because your food is fabulous. If only you could be proud of that and pass it on through your service!
