Jia is an old-school spot near South Kensington. And by old-school, we mean it doesn’t have a website. The restaurant itself is modern yet simple, and despite there being crispy duck, sweet and sour sea bass, and wasabi king prawns on the menu, the steamed dumplings are where it’s at. The curried king prawns, scallops, and black cod shu mai dumplings are among the best we’ve had in London, and even though things can get pretty expensive, pretty quick, the £28 set dinner comes with sweet and sour chicken, green curry king prawns, rice, vegetables, and, crucially, a dim sum platter.
