Reviewed yesterday NEW

This is the second time that I have visited Chop Chop and to be honest I was disappointed. Visiting 5 years ago, I was very impressed not only with the food but the general buzz and enthusiasm of all the staff. Returning this year I found the interior is starting to look very tired. The plastic crockery - which I... More

Went in for dinner as it was recommended by a friend. Almost Everything was perfect, food tasted great, service was amazing and prices were decent. But on 2 seperate occasions a hair came out on our plates but obviously from 2 different people. Understanding that these things can happen I was angry when the second hair was found. I would...

Thank you for the review, Menna. I was very sorry to read of your complaint and I would have offered you compensation had I been made aware. Our kitchen staff all wear hats. I do not know which dishes this occurred in so it is more difficult to investigate (could be from one of our suppliers or sometimes the ginger... More

In the past 2 weeks, my girlfriend and I have visited Chop Chop 3 times. We love this place. We both fell in love with dumplings when we lived in Melbourne and since returning back to Scotland, finding anywhere that has dumplings on their menu, let alone good dumplings, has been hard. These dumplings aren't good however, they're outstanding! On... More

I was looking for a good Chinese restaurant close where I was staying in Haymarket. The food and service was excellent as I had Sizzling beef and some fried rice. The beer was also cold-a perfect combination It was also warm and dry a stark contrast to the weather outside.

We love dim sum and read about this place. I had mis-givings on arrival as it all looks a bit shabby with well worn furniture, very sparse and tatty decor and plastic plates. However we persevered and I'm glad we did because the food is delicious. lunch menu is a set £9.95. From that menu you can order as much... More

Thanks for seeing beyond the distressed Asian canteen style we have successfully reproduced and for focussing on the food itself. The £9.95 weekday lunch is ridiculously good value and we have enhanced the experience with a good selection of wines, beers and helpful staff. Please visit again soon! More

My husband and I stumbled upon this gem of a restaurant by chance when we were staying in Haymarket. The personal touch lent by the restaurant owner makes this restaurant very special - he makes the time to get to know the customers, teach them how to eat the dumplings authentically, and make sure you are enjoying your meal. We... More

Thank you, ya1844sr, for your very generous review and a headline that cannot be topped! Thanks, also, for mentioning the terrific weekday lunch deal at £9.95 for unlimited, freshly cooked food and the nice compliment to me. I will always do my best to speak to all our guests. More

We visited this restaurant yesterday upon hearing good reviews. We were seated at a table that hadn't been cleaned and had to ask for it to be cleaned. The waitress was polite but didn't seem to know the menu and was unsure when we asked for something, we had no expectations as we knew it wasn't a regular Chinese restaurant... More

Thank you, LS2626, for your comments. We were extremely busy yesterday and were able to find you a table even though you had not booked. However, being so busy, it took some time before we were able to clean it. I'm pleased that you were served promptly, but on an evening like that, I did not have had time to... More

Been a customer a number of times since learning of the accolade received on Gordon Ramsay's F word, and raved about it to friends ever since longing to return.

Thank you for your review, Adrian, and the many points you raise. I am very sorry that the banquet did not live up to your expectations. The overwhelming majority of our feedback on the banquets (especially the dumplings) is very positive indeed but I will certainly check on the quality of the cooking that you highlight.

Don't expect tablecloths and fancy cutlery. This is a basic place serving top class, tasty food. The night we went the owner was on hand to explain some of the dishes. Dumplings are the star but there are plenty of other things on the menu. One of our favourites was an aubergine dish which was so good we ordered another... More
