Bonds Restaurant

Fab food, we had the £17.50 set menu so it was also very good value. Artichoke soup and salmon, all very delicious. Chocolate mousse for desert not so great.

Only serious let down was the service. We were there for 2 hours, waiting for various courses to arrive. The atnosphere is typical city lunch, lots of suits, fairly quiet, but nice.

went there early on a saturday night. char kwey teow could be nice but was very oily, like the rest of the food. £27 for 2 main dishes, spring rolls, chicken satay (smallish and oily) + 1 small beer. not good value. service ok. not much atmosphere/buzz to the place. would not go back.

Golden Dragon

Went there on a saturday night and clientelle was what you'd expect on a sat night in soho, in great numbers. Service was not great, food ok. 5 people - bill came to £91 incl. a few beers and some martinis. Peking duck was very nice and quite big (ended up leaving some, which NEVER happened before). Chicken & sweetcorn soup rather bland and unappealing, but hot & sour nice. Shredded beef and sweet & sour chicken, not unpredictable choices, were also nice, made with proper chicken. Would go back in, but wouldn't make a special effort to do so.

We went there on Sunday night in a party of 5. Was quite busy, but service and atmosphere were very good. We were told, politely enough, that we would only have the table for 2 hours since I booked on the phone, but also that we could move to the tea room if we wanted to stay any longer or could keep the table if it didn't get any busy. Waitresses were very nice, we exchanged a few jokes, they helped with the selection of wine. We had a moroccan cabernet sauvignion @ £25, not great value but pretty much what you expect. went well with the food; beer comes in 1/2 glasses @ £4; we went with tap water rather then bottled and didn't get any funny lookes, they just refilled our glasses as needed). We shared the little fillo pastries for appetizers (£9.80 each) then had tagines and momo couscous for mains (each £17-£19) - all really delicious and in big portions. Would definitely recommend and go back myself.
