This Chinese restaurant (previously known as Zen China) certainly boasts a cracking South Bank setting - it's at County Hall, a few doors down from the London Eye. Grab the right seat and you'll get some very decent views of the river, the Houses of Parliament and Westminster Bridge - it all looks great lit at night. Expect a food menu comprising fusion dishes from across China.

That means dishes such as stir-fried lobster with ginger and spring onion, prawn with lychee and peanut, crispy chicken wrapped with shrimp and served with sweet and sour sauce, and pan-seared scallop with black bean sauce. Dim sum also features, including har gau, siu mai, char siu buns and wild mushroom with puff pastry.

A short wine list features bottles from France, Chile, New Zealand, Italy and Argentina, served alongside a selection of Chinese rice wines and liqueurs.

Enjoy an authentic Chinese feast, lunch or dinner at Zen China. We specialise in Imperial Beijing cuisine, with a focus on traditional North Chinese regional cooking.

Conveniently located along the South Bank, we are very close to Waterloo, Westminster and the London Eye - in the heart of London. Zen China is the only Chinese restaurant in London that can offer you the delicious food with views of the Houses of Parliament, the River Thames and the London Eye. We are also a two minute walk from the London Aquarium and The London Dungeons.

Zen China is an exciting addition to the South Bank dining scene. A romantic setting within County Hall, we are a high-class Chinese restaurant with the atmosphere of an old country house drawing room.

Our signature dish is the authentic Beijing roast duck, as well as our wide array of noodle dishes, curries and traditional Chinese delicacies. We have a wide selection of both seafood and meat dishes, and also cater for vegetarians too. The team believes 'green food' is best, therefore we use entirely natural ingredients for all of our dishes.

Serving traditional Chinese cuisine and Imperial-style dishes, Zen China is without doubt one of the most unique spots on the South Bank.

Also coming soon
We are thrilled to announce that we are expanding and working on our new bar in County Hall. This will be the perfect location for a casual cocktail or glass of wine, meetings, parties, corporate and private events.
