A very fashionable and posh area of London. Be prepared to bring a few quid with you, as you'll certainly need it!

The food is very good and so is the service. But this is highly over-priced. For 40 pounds I had soup and sea food lettuce wraps. The sea food was very sparsely but very finely chopped up and when I asked for an extra piece of lettuce I was told that four pieces come in an order and if I wanted an extra piece of lettuce I would have to pay for an entire new order. And yes, you read that correctly. My partner had soup and a beef dish but it too was not very fulling. The following evening we visited the Good Earth, also in South Kensington , and we each had soup and two abundantly served dishes and that was less than the forty pounds at Jia. It is for that reason I have to rate this restaurant poor because you do not get value for your money.

With so many museums all on Exhibition Road and access to so many restaurants , Cafes, and pubs, you will not be disappointed. If the weather is nice, you are just a few short blocks to Hyde Park and Albert Hall.
