Don’t know why this restaurant is so popular. Mediocre food and service. I think easily can get from China town. The duck was recommended and it’s super “dry”. Clams was a bit overcook and the large prawn is nothing special too. The lobster noodles is the best among all as the meat is tender and sweet. Won’t be coming back for sure.

We ordered Ginger Lemon Chicken, Sweet and Sour Chicken and grilled vegetables. The lemon was very strong, but good. The chicken was not breaded and really soaked up the sauce. Service was adequate, ambiance was minimal.

The famous ginger and spring onion lobster noodle did not disappoint us

But it can be better. Too much corn starch to make the sauce like glue. Lobster is reasonable and a touch tough but that’s normal European lobster. Service is reasonable and does the job. Forget the atmosphere and focus on the food.
Reasonable value for money given it’s London.

We were 20 pax and were seated very swiftly as we booked beforehand.
Place was adequately lit and the place is bathed in a really nice atmosphere befitting of a high-end Chinese Cuisine Restaurant. As it is a small joint (2 ground floor shoplots combined into 1), it is expected that the are is quite packed and tight.

We were served a plethora of dishes that was selected by our host. The seafood fish maw soup was delicious and hearty.

Followed by their signature Peking Duck which I personally feel was alright, although nothing really to shout about. The skin of the Peking Duck was not really as crispy as others that I've previously tasted but all in all still a satisfying dish.

The main letdown to me was the lobster noodles, the whole dish tasted bland and had an overwhelming earthy tasted to it, I couldn't taste any hint of lobster within the sauce at all and the lobster were poorly prepared (flash frying with flour prior to it being tossed into the sauce was not done properly, the light batter coating the lobster also tasted weird).

The vegetables were all okay and great.

All in all it was an alright meal but the mainstay dishes were really disappointing, could've been much better.

Great restaurant specialising in the famous lobster noodles. Always have to order a dish when we come here. The lobster is fresh and juicy. Also tried the duck pancake which was tender with nice crispy skin on top. The spring onion and cucumber could be a bit fresher. Egg fried rice was very fragrant with the wok taste. Booked last minute to come here on the evening before the Lunar New Year and manager managed to squeeze us in which was really nice. Do come here if you fancy some lobster!
