Venue says Chinese Street Market Lunch Boxes from £14.99!

This expensively decorated, modern dim sum spot in South Ken serves up small plates of modish Cantonese-with-a-twist. The interior is ‘sexy teahouse’ - expect dark slatted wood, low-volume Nikki Beach tunes and masses of flickering tea lights.

Dim sum options range from beef and coriander shui mai, Shanghai dumplings and charsui buns to har gau served with a blackberry reduction, short rib puffs and steamed spider crab legs with marinated glass noodles. Mains include lamb chops with black pepper sauce, stir-fried 28-day-aged beef in oyster and ginger sauce, and pan-fried sea bass with broad bean sauce and a spinach foam. 

A long tea list is available alongside cocktails drawing influence from China, sake and a wine list focusing on the old world.

I was expecting pricey and very westernised Chinese food before I came here. To my pleasant surprise, the Dim Sum plates were delicious and still retained some authentic Chinese flavour. Service was attentive and the atmosphere got better as the evening progressed. (My group came for an early dinner at 1830 and we were the only ones there initially). If you feel like having small sharing plates whilst sipping cocktails/ wine, this is a good place to go to in the area, but if you are looking for the usual Chinese restaurant fare, you would be dissapointed. Price wise - it was very expensive for the food portion. In my opinion it may not be a good value for money.
