The name of this Chinese restaurant in Hammersmith gives a bit of a clue as to what it's all about: its speciality is dim sum, handmade each day by a chef with plenty of experience parcelling up parcels to be steamed (or baked). But it's not just about the dim sum. The menu also features crispy aromatic duck, salt and pepper squid, deep-fried soft shell crab, wonton soup, bok choi in garlic sauce and poached pork dumplings in chilli sauce soup. But if you want dim sum? Expect dim sum filled with things like sea bass and fennel, shrimp, peas and carrot, chives and prawn, Chinese mushroom and pork, radish, peanuts, chives and coriander. Steamed bao also feature, filled with braised pork, barbecued pork, pan-fried duck and salted egg yolk custard.
