We came here after searching for a dim sum restaurant. We were a tad disappointed to find that the full dim sum menu is served on Sunday only. Still we had a small selection of dumplings to choose from that were delicious.

Terrible experience. Taste of the food is below average! There's a fly in the noodle and the staff say that 'it's normal'. Will not go there again!

This is a typical Chinese restaurant in china town London. It's at it's best with the crispy duck and pancakes. Really delicious. The rest are fine, chicken with cashews is juicy and tasty. Anything with oyster sauce is a must too. Friendly service.

Horrible service. We waited over 50 minutes for the food. The staff were not helpful at all. Will never go back. Don't go there if you are expecting a decent service or if you are hungry.
