Culinary wise - this Meal was a masterpiece. Admittedly the service was so so but we are coming out of a pandemic so this will not be scored down.

After our meal, we had stayed at the table too long already. Nobody rushed us off but we made it known we would like to stay longer and the head of service kindly arranged 2 seats at the bar. Nico (our barman) well.. his service was comparable to that of the Connaught bar, scarfs bar, the mandarin oriental New York, aspen and the rest.

A wonderful evening.

We had a lovely dinner, food was delicious and service was great!
Anthony was very helpful with all our requests and made our experience very enjoyable.
The best dim sum in London in a lovely environment and good atmosphere, completely worth it.
Thank you!

A truly terrible dining experience.
The food is barely average and comparable to any high street chain. They sell themselves as an upscale restaurant however, don’t be fooled. Nothing about this place is upscale except the price, which I think is brought up a lot in comments because it’s so contrasting to what you get.

The staff are not interested, clearly don’t want to be there and offer probably the worst restaurant experience you could ask for.

Wait times for everything are long from ordering food, drinks and arrival and if you’re hoping to have attentive service look else where. No one checked in once to see how the food was or if we wanted anything additional. Also, once the plates had been cleared away no one came over to see if we would like anything else or would like to pay for more than 30 minutes at which point I’d had enough and left.

Finally, and this shouldn’t be surprising when in context with the rest of the experience, the bill was wrong and I ended up having to return to point out items I had not ordered were on the bill.

All in all not good enough, they need to get it right the first time. I will not be returning and would advise anyone I know to go elsewhere.

The service really made this experience- I was already expecting amazing food and cocktails but had been told the service didn’t quite match up (and seen that in the reviews on here). However, the service was excellent. We were moved to a better table with a heater when we asked and at the end of the meal they found us space on the balcony to finish our drinks without rushing. Through the meal the service was efficient but not in your face. The whole evening was excellent.
