Le Chinois

One foam is amusing, two is boring and by the third one you roll your eyes and scrape it off and salvage whatever was hiding underneath. In general the food was tasty even if they fussed over having too many dissimilarly flavoured ingredients in a dish and not enough different textures. Could have done without it being chronically over-salted as well. Service was attentive and helpful. The décor suffers from 90’s fusion restaurant meets painfully slick New York hotel. With the two-for-one deal, 8£ oyster surcharge, a bottle of water and 2 non-alcoholic cocktails the bill was nearly 90£ for two. If you want lots of small fiddly things artfully arranged on a plate for the amusement value, it’s not a bad way to spend a Saturday night.
