Bao Fa Garden

This Chinese restaurant (previously known as Zen China) certainly boasts a cracking 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. Expect a food menu comprising fusion dishes from across China.

That means dishes such as stir-fried lobster with ginger and spring onion, prawn with lychee and peanut, crispy chicken wrapped with shrimp and served with sweet and sour sauce, and pan-seared scallop with black bean sauce. Dim sum also features, including har gau, siu mai, char siu buns and wild mushroom with puff pastry.

A short wine list features bottles from France, Chile, New Zealand, Italy and Argentina, served alongside a selection of Chinese rice wines and liqueurs.

Bao Fa Garden says
Bao Fa Garden Restaurant & Bar is located inside County Hall, next to London Eye, on top of Aquarium. You can find us by following the staircases on either side of the Aquarium. The view from the restaurant takes in Big Ben, Parliament, the London Eye and the river Thames.

Previously known as Zen China, we have been open since 2010. Our name, Bao Fa Garden, is taken from a restaurant in northern China which has been established for over 100 years and is well known for its signature dishes and legendary stories.

Bao Fa Garden in London has been recently renovated and expanded with a brand new bar and open kitchen. We continue to serve northern Chinese cuisine as well as classic fusion dishes.

We are not only an ideal place for meeting friends and families, but also the perfect location for corporate events, conferences, wedding receptions and banquets, not to mention Christmas and New Year’s Eve parties.

Over the years we have strived to continuously improve the quality of food and level of service offered to customers, and we pride ourselves on the excellent feedback received. You can read some of these comments below:

“Every bite of the food was so enjoyable, that’s why I keep returning to this place…”

“You people are amazing and the food was just WOW!”

“The good thing about eating here is not only the excellent food but also the unforgettable views and the fantastic atmosphere that makes your experience absolutely amazing”
