Restaurant description

With an inviting glass façade, chefs at Beijing Dumpling create Chinese food in full view of the bustle outside. In the heart of Chinatown, traditional dishes contrast with modern décor to form a vibrant, authentic restaurant.

The Beijing Dumpling menu offers traditional starters like satay chicken, and crispy duck with pancakes, as well as a house speciality befitting of the restaurant’s name: a range of meat, fish and vegetarian dumplings. Aromatic mains include chicken with cashew nuts, pepper salted pork chops and braised bean curd with Chinese mushrooms.

Classic noodle and rice dishes are on offer, as well as the enticing Indonesian-style fried rice and Malaysian-style fried ho fun. Even the drinks menu is exotic, with traditional Chinese teas being joined by a fresh soya bean drink and a sugar cane root drink. The décor is modern, the large glass windows revealing the wooden-panelled walls and ambient low lighting behind.

Beijing Dumpling in London is a 2-minute walk from Leicester Square Tube Station.

    The Beijing dumpling is a little chinese restaurant with a clean interior. Due to COVID-19 there are only a few tables and separated through plastic walls. The staff is very kind and attentive. Good value lunch and dinner meals. Best beef and chicken (chinese) dish to date.

    The waitress was very friendly and efficient. Good social distancing measures in place. The food came very quickly after ordering. The food portions were massive and delicious. Exceptionally good value and well-priced. Would definitely eat here again.

    Covid security in place made me and my friend feel safe as well as didn't damper our dinning experience. The wood was great as usual. Really enjoyed our dinner

    The food is fast and wonderful. The dry fried noodles are phenomenal, we come here mainly for those. Delicious dumplings and the wine isn't too bad. However, do not come here if you need good service to enjoy yourself. I go here fairly often and the service is rarely above average. In fact, quite often, the service is verging on rude. I personally don't overly mind that, but I know others do, so be aware.

    Never fails to impress with the quality of food presented here. Big portions and amazing dishes. The spicy aubergine being one of my favourites and the dumplings are fresh and made there and then.
