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.

    Another tasty meal at Imperial China. Always go for the crispy duck and Singapore noodles with mushrooms and Pak choi. They never disappoint.

    The dinning was a very pleasant and enjoyable experience. The staff were very attentive and very efficient, the atmosphere was very relaxed and welcoming. All of the food was delicious especially the duck.

    Polite staff, not too pricey considering its in central London. Nice ambiance with dim lighting which made it feel cosy and private but not too romantic.

    Duck was dry and tasteless. Service was rude. Not a place to figure anywhere near the Michelin’s radar.

    We took someone who had never been to a Chinese restaurant before, she was enthralled. The food was good and exactly what I expected so there were no nasty surprises for our companion.
