Dim T is another ‘Pan-Asian’ restaurant chain with several branches in London. I liked that this branch had seating outside, allowing customers to enjoy their meal with a view. My friends and I would have done so but it was a little windy and chilly that evening so we sat indoors instead. But that didn’t take away the charm of having a beautiful view though, because the windows were floor to ceiling.


In terms of food, we each went for our own main dish along with some dim sum to share as starters. The first dim sum we had was the Pork & Chive. This is a typical combination that you would find at dim sum restaurants and one serving came with three dumplings. I was surprised with how good it was, given that Dim T doesn’t specialise in any one Asian cuisine. The second dim sum we had was the Chicken, Cashew & Coriander. This was a unique combination in my opinion and something I don’t normally see at dim sum restaurants. One serving came with three dumplings and they looked a lot like Siew Mai but with a cashew nut on the top. This too was not bad! Both tasted even better when dipped in some soy sauce and the chili sauce they provide on the table.


As for my main dish, I went for the Chicken Pad Thai. This is quite a traditional Thai dish and one of my favourites. I liked that the dish came somewhat ‘deconstructed’ – the crushed peanuts and pieces of chicken breast were on the side while the noodles was stir fried with loads of vegetables and onions. However, I didn’t like that the crushed peanuts were soggy. They’re meant to be crunchy to give the dish an added layer of texture but this was not the case with theirs. It also lacked crushed red chili flakes, which is normally served on the side to be mixed in. They only had the chili sauce provided on the table, so I just mixed that in. Overall, the dish was not bad but definitely not authentic in taste. I thought it was a little bland, as I had to add more soy sauce into the noodles and the original flavours did not stand out.


After a pretty heavy main, we contemplated getting dessert but caved when we saw what the table next to ours had ordered. I went for the Chocolate Bento Box without the vanilla ice cream because of my lactose intolerance. It was probably quite a strange request for our waitress but I’m glad they were happy to accommodate. The dessert came served in a Japanese bento box with a very generous slice of chocolate brownie topped with an equally generous helping of warm chocolate sauce. I really liked it because the chocolate was thick and rich and the brownie was baked well – it had a crunchy exterior with the perfectly crisp edges and a warm and gooey interior. It was just a little too indulgent though, as I couldn’t finish it all and only managed to eat half. 


I thought it was quite cute that they served fortune cookies at the end of the meal, when you ask for the bill. The cookie itself was not like the typical fortune cookies you would get. It was shaped in a cylinder but was still crunchy and buttery.

The London Bridge branch offers a spectacular view on Tower Bridge. The restaurant is very spacious, which is very convenient for prams. The food selection is wide with a mix on non-spicy and spicy options. Even though it is clearly a Western version of Pan-Asian food, it is quite tasty and fresh. The pork bun Dim-Sum is definitely one to try. I had the chicken Yaki Soba as a main, which was good but lacked a little kick or maybe a special sauce. The portions are quite generous so it is very good value for the price, and the view!

Maybe not the best Thai food you 've had but definitely the one with the nicest view. Situated in the More London Development, DimT offers great views on the Tower Bridge, the Thames and the City Hall. The food is average, a very westernized version of Thai. The prices though are good. They do regular offers such as noodles for 1 pound when a main course is pursued and £5 take away meal, so make sure you visit their website before you visit the place.

I think the best thing about this place is the price! Wasn't expecting it at all based on the setting. The restaurant itself is laid out well and the atmosphere is nice, but it has an amazing view of Tower Bridge. The food is good, the dumplings especially. I had the beef noodles and to be honest have had better, the sauce wasn't anything particularly special, however all in all, I would highly recommend this venue, based on price, atmosphere and the food as a whole.
