This Ealing branch of Shikumen – an authentic Chinese restaurant – is situated on the ground floor of Hotel Xanadu, within convenient reach of Ealing Broadway shopping centre. The decor, like the food, combines flourishes of both East and West. Within the neat and spacious dining space there's dark wood typical of Oriental interior design, which has been balanced by inoffensive creams and other neutral shades.
Food includes quality steamed dim sum, spicy Singapore noodles, Penang fried ho fun, wonton soup and other East Asian staples. To wash your meal down there are five teas to choose from (including oolong and jasmine) and for something a little stronger, browse Shikumen's selection of cocktails, wines, mixers, sake, beer and cider.
Shikumen has three other links in its mini-chain, in Shepherd's Bush, Finchley Road and Aldgate.

Finally a decent Chinese in central Ealing - the atmosphere is fairly up market relative to other Ealing restaurants, albeit a little sterile given that it's in a hotel - but the food is great and the menu is full of interesting and high quality dishes. the dim sum are a speciality but there's plenty on the menu for every taste. Service was faultless and genuinely friendly.
