Only been once after a couple of years talking about going. Went on a Tuesday -very quiet but excellent food and service. Ideal for a romantic dinner for two!

When in town we try to make our way here for the infamous naans which are huge. We refer to the restaurant as 'The big naan curry house' to friends. Try as we do we still haven't managed to get through a family naan yet!!

Well what can I say. I had heard about the poor service but decided to venture here after reading the majority of positive reviews about the food with my wife. The shabby stairs that greeted us as we made our way to the first floor was a warning of things to come! We sat down and immediately had various plastic bowls and plates thrown in front of us plus a teapot of jasmine tea. We ordered prawn toast (greasy and very little prawn), spring rolls (minimal content and greasy), lemon chicken, seafood noodles, sweet and sour vegetables and boiled rice. Admittedly the main dish portions were big but they were all drenched in a tasteless mono sodium glutamate paste which congealed as the food cooled and ruined what could have been decent tucker. I cannot understand all the claims from reviewers that this is authentic chinese food - authentically bad then yes I agree. The three redeeming factors were the jasmine tea, the spicy dipping oil and the people watching.

Avoid unless you are desperate! There are a million better places to eat chinese food in London.
