A longstanding glatt kosher Chinese restaurant in Hendon, taking its name from the Chinese city in Hunan province, where Jews lived as long ago as the tenth century. The menu reads like a snapshot of crowd-pleasing Chinese dishes.
That means starters of sesame chicken, duck spring rolls, salt and pepper spare ribs and vegetarian spring rolls alongside mains of Hunan lamb, deep fried shredded chilli beef, lemon chicken, sliced duck with pineapple and sizzling steak Cantonese style. A range of set menus - at lunch and dinner - also feature.
The wine list includes bottles from Isreal, France, Italy, USA, New Zealand and Spain, as well as a number of Champagnes – including a house option. Cocktails range from lychee martinis, mai tais and mojitos to a Kaifeng Kosher Cooler and a Rabbi's Ruin. Must be potent.

Yes, it is expensive but to me it is great value for what you get. The food is the best kosher I have had, delicious and plentiful. The restaurant is unlike any kosher establishment in the world. Fine art displayed on dark panelled walls and the staff are helpful and friendly. Must try the Crispy Aromatic Duck!!!
