This Soho branch of the dim sum chain is one of eight now in London, and a solid example of why this group seems to still be doing so well. It's somewhere that works well as an accessible introduction to yum cha - before you get to the tripe, the chicken feet and the duck tongue.
Most of the dumplings here are steamed, with recognisable options including chicken and cashew nut, scallop and shiitake, char siu (barbecue pork in a fluffy white bao) and har gau (king prawn and bamboo shoot in a translucent dough). Expect, too, baked roast pork puffs, griddled spinach and mushroom dumplings and even gyoza, for a slice of how they do them in Japan.

Finally Asiana dumpling place with gluten free options! The food was really tasty, and they even had a gluten free soya sauce. Each basket had four dumplingsand cotsaround £4, my favourite were the black prawn and spicy vegetable ones.
The only problem was the slow and moody service. We didn't ask for so much, just to have our white whine cold and some water but we got some eye bulbs rolling and it took forever.
Definitely worth going for the food tho.
Great service, ordering system explained to us as it was our first time there. Food comes as and when it is ready and everything tasted good. Only reason for 4* is that I think it is a bit overpriced....
Been here twice now, lovely atmosphere and I like the water feature outside- great to look at during the meal! I enjoyed the food and drink, good service too and very clean washroom facilities. Would recommend it to others for a pleasant meal
