Venue says: "Enjoy a traditional Chinese dining experience overlooking the Thames, Big Ben and the London Eye. Set lunch and dinner menus available."

This Chinese restaurant certainly boasts a salubrious 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. 

The menu here features an accessible number of well-known Chinese dishes, but there are adventurous options too. Expect, then, salt and pepper spare ribs, sesame toast, crispy seaweed and classic kung pao chicken alongside hot and spicy beef fillet with tripe, beef shin in a spicy sauce and marinated cloud ear mushroom.

Dim sum is available on the a la carte, alongside a signature dish of Beijing duck authentically served in two courses - the first sliced at the table and served with pancakes, the second stir-fried with vegetables and pickles. Keep an eye out for special events, too.

Zen China Restaurant says
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.
