Excellent food and wine and very good service
(**** 2 January 2018 by Dr. Turner from London
I ad booked a later evening time, as I was hoping to have dinner after a visit to the theatre. There was only one other table occupied while I was seated. There was no one to greet me at the entrance, I can only assume this is customary as this was the case at every dining establishment I visited in London. I was offered a choice of seats, and then waited about seven minutes for a menu. Once my order was placed I waited again about five minutes before water, which I had ordered with my meal. Meanwhile the other table was having a jovial time as they bantered back and forth with an older gentle woman, who seemed quite attentive to their needs. After this table left, I heard this woman berating a younger woman about 1) not showing up late, 2) making sure she polished both sides of a marble column, and 3) general ways to behave in the restaurant. At one point two other employeees were also receiving lessons in operating the restaurant. I was visited twice during my meal, once to take my starter away, though I was clearly still eating it having just lifted the chopsticks to my mouth, and once at the end to take away my plate.
On the whole the meal was passable, not at all like the reviews I'd read on line prior to my trip to the U.K. I should have expected poor service as the service in the other hotel restaurant had also been terrible, though they hadn't tried to take food away whilst I was still eating it. Perhaps if I had come with local patrons, I'd have had a better experience, but I doubt that I'd return given the rather ordinary meal and substandard service.

Food was great
Setting was lovely
Price was actually pretty reasonable, only £155 for 5 people
Service without a smile, pretty standard for Chinese restaurants though

Excellent dimsum, fresh, beautifully cooked whether traditional or house style. Quality customer care too, discreetly attentive service at table and throughout restaurant. Lovely ambience/acoustics for unhurried dining and conversation in an ‘oasis’ of calm yet easily accessible by public transport. And surprisingly reasonably priced for such top quality food, service and location.

Slow and silent service in a grand setting that lacked any atmosphere. Mediocre food.

Absolute garbage! The food was bland and the service rude and couldn't care less though that did at least save me paying the automatically added service charge, something I have never felt the need to do before.
