If the letters D and D make you think of anaemic basement dwellers trying to hex their dog with a witch’s hat on then fair play. Same here. But go to Imperial Treasure, a fancy Chinese restaurant in St James’s, and you’ll be thinking of dumplings and duck instead. This is a big restaurant that has all the excitement and atmosphere of a music festival in outer space, but when the cheung fun is this good, and the peking duck this moist, who needs buzz? It’s undeniably expensive, but come as a group of 3 or 4, split some dim sum and a duck, and the quality of the food you get is well worth it.
