Chinese Cricket Club Restaurant
This Chinese restaurant in the Crowne Plaza Hotel is well located for the City as well as the nearby attractions of the Tate Modern and St Paul's Cathedral. The menu focuses on (spicy) Sichuan cooking but takes in dishes such as tiger prawns with Shanghai noodles, Hunanese lamb and Beijing-style crispy duck, as well as a range of Cantonese dim sum. A range of set menus are offered too for £17.50, along with a chef's tasting menu (£45).
Venue says: “Gaifan Lunch - Weekdays 12-2:30pm. A traditional dish made with a choice of stir-fried or braised toppings served with rice and pak choi”
