    Food was excellent, service not so. We booked for a late dinner and we're made to feel rushed the whole way through. We were also told we could only order certain food from the menu. The staff basically watched us as we ate and made us feel quite uncomfortable. They also got the drinks order wrong. Not the best experience overall.

    The food was ok. Service was very slow. I waited an extremely long time between courses and had to ask for the bill multiple times before anyone would help me.

    The food was very good. Although the restaurant was virtually empty it was difficult to attract the attention of the staff as they were engrossed in laying tables. They appeared sullen with no finess or even a vestige of a smile. The staff had to be called to clear our plates. It was clear that they expected us to use the plates from a previous course for a newly ordered dish. Furthermore they did not remove food remnants from the table cloth. In short the staff showed no interest in their customers presumably due to a total lack of training. One positive point is that they immediately agreed to deduct 12.5% service charge when we complained.

    The food was nice, but the service was a little below average. The staff weren't very pleasant and not what I extpexted from an advertised pre-theatre menu. We had to push to get the course through quickly and had to ask for the last course again otherwise we would have missed the show!

    I think we both enjoyed what we ordered - it was from the £ 16 menu - I can't remember the names but mine was the vegetarian option. I'd like to have had the option of knives and forks from the start - as I result I couldn't finish my rice for lack of time. I was very glad you were quick to bring both courses. I found my chair a bit low although I am 6 feet tall

    Let's start with the service. The service was fine initially i.e. from the point we sat down to the point when we ordered our food. We had three courses, started with soup and the waitress who took our order did ask us whether we'd like our soup to come separately to our main course, and to which we said yes. Much to our great disappointment, even before we finished our soup, they were already chucking the main course dishes on the table! At that point, our dining experience was completely ruined as we had to rush our soup down so that our main dishes wouldn't get too cold. This is something most Chinese restaurants will have to learn I notice. If you want to divide your menu into different courses like the Western cuisine, then PLEASE serve one course at a time! My view is, if they are to give their guests a "China town" type of service, then they should really be in China town.

    Now the food. Overall, the food quality was pretty good and quite tasty. However, the portion size is just TOO small! It's a bit of a rip-off to be honest! Quite simply, if they want to give their guests 'Michelin star' portion sizes, then at least match that with a 'Michelin star' service!

    I'm not sure whether this review is going to change anything but you asked for my view, here it is! It is such a shame though as I quite like to go there for dim sum every now and again but last evening's dinner experience will make me think twice about taking my guests/friends there.

    Nice restaurant. Good service. The food is good but not spectacular (my broccoli was almost raw). Expensive for what it was, in my opinion. However, I am not used to London prices.

    We arrived with one guest in a wheelchair having been advised the restaurant was accessible. Unfortunate the lift was out of order, but hotel staff assisted in carrying the wheelchair and occupant up the stairs and were very helpful. Once inside, we were made very welcome and both food and service were very good. Being in a hotel I was worried that the hotel might lack a little atmosphere but there were several lively groups.

    A pleasant Chinese restaurant in a hotel in Victoria Station. The food was fine, staff all excellent and very helpful. The room is drab but comfortable and the atmosphere telax d.
