I have used tripadvisor for few years, its my first time to give a review as the experience I had in Stack was awful. My friend recommeded this place, my partner and I were very excited to try. However, we felt really disappointed of the food and horrible service. The service was extremely bad, the woman who served us was... More

Treated to lunch by an experienced eater of Chinese cuisine who frequents the place often. We were treated to about a dozen sharing bowls (between 3 of us) followed by a sharing plate of vegetable noodles. Almost all of the dishes we ordered suited my gluten intolerant mother. It was all very moreish, the radish slice in particular stands out.... More

I have been meaning to try Stack for ages, and I was not disappointed. I've eaten at the Michelin starred Tim Ho Wan in Hong Kong, and for me the quality was on a par with that. I must admit I prefer baked Char Siu buns given the choice, but Stack's steamed offering was absolutely delicious. Other dishes of particular... More

From the outside you would think not much of this little gem, but don't be put off.Best dim sum I've had in a long time, my only complaint they sold out of my favourite dim sum the char Sui bun, went just after lunch time only a small place so you may need to book if going in the evening.

I love the food here! The service has been pretty questionable here and there which is the only reason this is a 4* review instead of 5* (tbh it's just one staff member and they perked up when my fiance arrived!), but it is so worth it! There is a huge variety of dishes and I have nothing negative to... More

This is a tiny restaurant but serves fresh Cantonese style dimsum. I'm so happy I don't have to make a trip to London's Chinatown to satisfy my dimsum needs. The Sui mai, char sui bao and cheung fun were lovely.

I'd not visited for a while so reviewed the menu as if for the first time and selected dim sum more on instinct than knowledge. Every section was extremely tasty . Excellent dim sum. We had 8 dishes between two people.

Friends recommended this place and it's really worth heading slightly out of town for. The one thing people really really really should try is the belly pork rice clay pot. £5 sounds expensive for rice but it's more of a main dish and it is the best rice dish I've ever had!
