We were staying at a nearby hotel and came across this restaurant by chance. It's not the best of lookers from a distance and it was a cold wet night. Set back near the dock side it's probably best seen in the sunshine! However it's warm and welcoming inside. Friendly staff. We'd booked and our table was waiting. The place... More

Restaurant unappealing outside - its above the rowing club. Inside large with views over the water. Always very noisy in there regardless of how many customers. That evening it was packed. Food served quickly and came up very fresh and tasty. Fair choice although set menu good. Some dishes quite expensive in comparison with other Chinese restaurants. One bugbear was... More

Ate here with 2 friends. The restaurant isn't very much to look at from the outside but inside it's quite impressive and very large with views over the wharf to London City Airport. The food was good but slightly pricey, it was also quite noisy due to the large number of people eating there as it's very popular. Overall a... More

Been at this place plenty of times and can say that it is amazing place for Dim Sum. Yes, amazing service is not a highlight of this place, but I think it is quite usual at oriental restaurants. If you want a lifetime experience this is not a place for you, but if you are looking for good dim sum... More

Inexpensive Chinese food, location is a bit remote, it can be noisy if there is some birthday / wedding ceremony. But overall it's one of the best Chinese dim sum restaurants in London

I notice that whilst the prices are reasonable they charge £3 per person for Chinese tea which is way expensive. Tea is one of the cheapest beverage and if they continue doing this I am not going back, a more reasonable price would be £1. Having said that the food is good and fresh.

I thought this restaurant was overpriced for what was pretty average Chinese food. We were a large group and I felt we were a bit of a pain to the staff because we entered at 9pm.
