Despite its glassy exterior, its proximity to Paddington station (undoubtedly a bottom three London terminus), and its misfortune to have the words Toby and Young appear in relation to a review of it, Pearl Liang is a fine choice for dim sum. The business-feeling-but-not-business-priced restaurant keeps everything around the £4 - £5 mark which reflects the satisfactory standard of siu mai, cheung fun with XO sauce, and the comforting spicy prawn ravioli in broth. AKA, prawn wontons. FYI they also offer a dim sum set menu of 8 items for just under £12, which is very reasonable.
