This place is fantastic - had never heard of it before . It's kind of in the middle of nowhere and the building looks like a warehouse! But the food was delicious - like I remember from Hong Kong on a trip there last year . It's a vast vast restaurant but runs very smoothly . People have commented on... More

We booked on line and arrived soon after. Friendly genuine service. Food was traditional Chinese cuisine without surprises excellently prepared fresh produce. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Would we go back? Yes definitely!

Walking distance from Holiday Inn Express Excel where we stayed, great location if you're a fan of aeroplanes taking off and landing. Food was excellent quality. We had noodles, honey roast pork and sizzling prawns & scallops. Seen some of the reviews on here before going but we took into account that it's a large restaurant in the largest city... More

Restaurant itself is situated in a non impressive structure and entrance is through rather uninviting doors and up a staircase. However when you enter the restaurant things are much improved- light cascading through large glass frontage / windows. Great views of planes and runway at london city. Staff were efficient but not particularly friendly- they were there to serve food... More

Visited with my Daughter. externally, looks like you're entering a warehouse. Not until you reach the top of the stairs are you confident it's a restaurant. views are fantastic from window seats. Service wasn't great. We hadn't booked, plenty of tables, allocated one towards the rear of the restaurant. Drinks order and arrival was slow. Staff member dropped tray spilling... More

My partner and I had a trip to London and we were staying in a hotel just opposite this restaurant. We saw it as we drove on and thought about giving it a try! After a nice evening stroll along the docks we walked past the front of it and saw the inside of the restaurant it was all glass... More

You walk into an empty stairwell, there is no signage advertising the restaurant! Up the stairs and through a set of double doors and you are in a large Chinese restaurant with a panoramic view of London City Airport runway! Great food but a little rushed, the place was packed but we were visiting during a very busy time for... More

Went for lunch with my family. We ordered dim sum and Three Roast with rice (Roast Duck, Char situ and Crispy Pork). Dim sum was okay, nothing special. But what we had on the Three Roast was surprisingly disgusting. The duck and char siu were okay, but the crispy pork was 100 per cent PURE FAT under the skin. How... More

We ate here last weekend, just the 2 of us. when we arrived the 'ticket' system and wait for a table was slightly off putting but we gave the benefit of the doubt and waited... although there was a lot of people waiting we were soon seated at our table with lovely view of City airport and the river.
