Recommended in the Michelin Guide, Imperial China London specialises in traditional Cantonese dishes and exquisite dim sum. Outside, a bridge sits over a carp pond surrounded by waterfalls, whilst the interior is bright and contemporary.

The Imperial China restaurant menu is led by signature seafood dishes and Chinese favourites. Sample fresh lobster with ginger and spring onion, fried squid with spicy salt and pepper, or the classic aromatic duck with pancakes. Other favourites include sweet and sour chicken, and stir-fried fillet steak cubes with mushrooms.

The Imperial China dim sum menu showcases handcrafted authentic recipes such as steamed pork dumplings and deep-fried pork pastries. From the bar, choose from a range of wines, beers and spirits.

Imperial China in Chinatown sits on the edge of Soho, just a 2-minute walk from Leicester Square Tube Station. The theatres of the West End, as well as Trafalgar Square and Covent Garden are all a short walk away.

    Always come here for Dim Sum, would thoroughly recommend. Modern and reasonable.

    Visually it looked nice. We were not impressed with the constant hovering of staff taking away plates as we were eating . We waited for the bill for too long.
    Their manner was not personal enough for us and we would not return here.
    Food was tasty though.

    Good food but not all of our dishes arrived on time as we had to wait for one. Also coffee's were late to our table and were lukewarm.

    The staff was very welcoming and the service was good. I went to this restaurant with my sister and we thought that the food was delicious and still affordable.

    The meal was fine - an average experience. Standard Chinese restaurant fare so if your looking to know exactly what you're getting and don't really expect to be blown away then this is a safe bet. We probably won't go back as there is so much choice in the area

    The ambience was good, lovely service and most of the dim sum was good, except for some of the most staple ones (siu mai and turnip cake) which was surprising. The last time I was there in June the very two I found disappointing were excellent. Seems the quality of the food isn't standardised. Favourite dishes were the pan fried dumplings (we had three kinds), wasabi har gau, beef balls and char siu cheung fun. Think we ordered 12 dishes between the 4 of us and we were comfortably full.
