Message from Imperial China: "By confirming your booking, we trust that you are adhering to the government's legislation in respect of meeting friends and family outside of your household.

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.

Dishes displayed on a la carte menus are representative of the type of food available at the restaurant.

    Really great. Although my friends arrived quite late there was no pressure to order or move on. The service was excellent throughout and the food was delicious. Again there was no pressure to finish and leave. Will be going again soon.

    Service was very good, restaurant nicely tucked away for such a busy area. Food was tasty the only fault was ratio of duck skin to duck meat in my dish .....

    As always, prompt service, excellent food and value for money. Dim Sum definitely recommend. I always use this restaurant with either clients or friends and everyone comments favourably.
