Haozhan

Chinatown

This smart Chinatown restaurant specialises in Peking and Cantonese cuisine - with a few crowd-pleasers from Thailand and Malaysia, just for good measure. They bill themselves as 'roast duck specialists', so there's high hopes for that staple of Beijing cuisine. 

There are plenty more equally recognisable Chinese dishes to complement those birds hanging appetisingly in the window. Expect dishes such as chicken in sweet and sour sauce, stir-fried shredded beef with chilli, and chicken in black bean sauce. More adventurous options come from the Szechuan dishes - think wok-fried pig's knuckle in pepper sauce, or mixed beef tripe with sizzling chilli oil.

There's a daily dim sum menu too, served alongside a variety of hot teas.

Thoughtful, intelligent cooking, charming staff, excellent service. Not cheap but makes a great treat.

Terrible terrible service. Food not much above that you'd expect from a greasy takeaway. Avoid avoid avoid.
