The place has amazing atmosphere, it suddenly takes you from a back street of Brick Lane and teleports you somewhere in China. But it deserves 3/5 stars only because it is extremely expensive and the service is not on par with it.

That being said, most of the dishes on the menu are tasty and they are as authentic as they can be. Still, they lack a bit of taste, some need more salt or a bit less spicy. But they are authentic and a lot better than the one in Chinatown.

At the end of the day, I'd probably come back again (for 3rd time), but I wouldn't come as frequently as I would if they fix the overpriced dishes or improve the quality of the food.

When I first walked in to this restaurant, I feel like I was in China.. some rural area.. It is a very old traditional Chinese decoration restaurant . Food is average, not really amazing, generous big portion tho but it is very oily too. Service is okay, if you visit here, please don't expect you will welcome with smiling 😔 face . the restaurant is quite huge, sometime you need to raise hand to get attention or walk to the counter.

I think it’s fair. Some of the dishes are good, some are below average. The sweet and sour pork is really nice, much better than other restaurants nearly. However fried rice is not that good, the taste is not rich enough and bit too oily…

Came here last night to celebrate my friends birthday, I can confirm, It is the kind of restaurant suitable for large gatherings. The meal tasted good particularly the fermented potato, spicy chicken and black fungus and I ate until I was full but this morning I had an unsettled stomach which is rare because when I lived in Paris I ate many rotten vegetables so my stomach linning is strong. This is the main reason I would not return. I think what was fun about it was the location in an unsuspecting basement door and Staff are very friendly with good atmosphere but food was not outstanding and had a complicated after effect. Also the meal was very expensive, every one at my table spent £36. I would have liked to spend £15-£20. I would rate this restaurant a 6.5/10.

Pretty good food, but the service and atmosphere wasn't great. I don't expect great service from an authentic Asian restaurant (usually the meaner they are, the better the food). The atmosphere was the worst as it smelled like cleaning solution as soon as you walked into the restaurant.

Food wise, we got plenty of dishes (if not too much) like the beef hot pot, the beef noodles, aubergines, and a 1/4 duck. I liked the noodles and aubergines, but the duck was too dry. The beef hot pot was tasty, but a bit too greasy.
