Breakfast is being served in here, post COVID. The restaurant is well spaced out for social distancing and the menu is very good. The food is excellent and you can't fault the service from Alex and the staff. We enjoyed breakfast here in a relaxed...atmosphere.More

Was very pleased to be able to experience a dragon dance as the restaurant was celebrating Chinese New Year last Friday evening and particularly as it was my birthday. Luck me. Set menu was good although not enough for two men but, then they do...have a very healthy apetite! Staff very friendly and were happy to teach us one or two words of mandarin great fun. Thank you for a memorable birthday celebration.More

Good food. Reasonable prices. Staff nice. Most reviews are wrong! I was surprised to read the negative reviews of this place. I have eaten hear 3 times and have been very happy with the food, the portion size, the service and even the price given...this is LONDON! The negative reviews I read really don’t reflect my opinion.More

I would give 0 to this restaurant if I could. I booked this restaurant for Christmas dinner. The restaurant website advertised on the traditional British buffets and, frankly, that’s the only reason I booked the dinner there. When I arrived, no turkey was served in...the buffet. All food looked cold and unappetizing. I tried to communicate this issue with the manager. To my surprises, he responded in a very condescending tone “you should have read through our menus carefully...you would know what you paid for...” then he turned his back at me.....The manger didn’t bother to check on my table for the rest of the night..The a few times that the staffs stopped by to collect the plates, not a single time I got a response or even an eye contact when I said thank you..The 12.5% service charge was included in the bill, so even if the service was a nightmare, I still paid over 20 pounds on the service alone..The experience was a nightmare. Do NOT go to this restaurant. By reading the comments, the the rudeness in service is a common occurrence in this restaurant, especially received from the manager.More

This is one of my go to places with work and friends as it's super fast lunchtime service is excellent and it's close to our office. However I'm not sure why the lunchtime menu has dissappeared. It' takes this from a good value lunch stop...to an expensive lunchtime venue. Shame as really think lunchtime menu was useful even if we didn't always use it.More

We decided to eat after a late arrival to the Crowne Plaza. It is a little expensive (but it is London), however we loved the food and really enjoyed ourselves. The staff are friendly, we were not rushed through our meal and we would choose...to go back here.More

Late on a Sunday evening we were glad to find any half decent restaurant in this part of London. It was empty when we arrived and empty too when we left. In between, the meal was fine….not wowee though…service was understandably attentive…value about right.

Well, you live and learn - being unable to get a table for 6 the same day at Kym's we came here. It's a cold, miserable dining room in a tourist hotel opposite Blackfriars station. The 1st wanting sign should have been the premium rate...call number they use to take bookings ( what is this. 1989??) The staff are pleasant and efficient but the food is so so dull. We had the set menu which consisted of:- Salt & pepper squid - ok. 5/10 Vegetarian spring roll - oily 4/10 Peking duck - for easy of the kitchen the decided to slice it, rather than shred it. It was dry and the plum sauce much too sweet. 3/10 Main courses: Pak Choi with mushrooms quite good 8/10 Crispy shredded beef - not sure I found any beef - just batter in sweet sauce 2/10 Spicy chicken ? 3/10 over all not great for £35 head plus service Not to be repeated.
