You won’t get your run-of-the-mill dim sum here. This two-Michelin star Chinese restaurant has a reputation for serving a top-notch innovative modern menu that showcases a diverse selection of regional Chinese dishes. Each piece is made bespoke for the table ranging from rabbit and carrot glutinous puff to 999 layered scallop puff with XO oil.
Peking duck, special fried rice and unctuous noodles are all delicious, but sometimes Chinese food is best eaten in exquisitely crafted bite-sized packets. London’s best restaurants for dim sum offer traditional buns, dumplings and rolls as well as renegade riffs on the old classics. And not just in Chinatown: you can sample London’s yum cha scene across the city, from a luxe west London hotel to a hip East End joint. All you need are a pair of chopsticks and a pair of elasticated trousers.
