Does this big old-school spot on Baker Street make some of the best dim sum and Cantonese food in London? We think so. It’s an institution that plenty of people get a little misty-eyed about and the chilli oil or hoisin-stained white tablecloths can bring back all kinds of memories. Don’t be surprised that it can easily add up to west London club prices. That said, this is a club where everyone has always been welcome and sometimes you deserve some dim sum with a difference.

Now strap in, because here comes your order. You’re going to want the minced pork and shrimp dumplings, the roasted pork buns, the prawn cheung fun, the sesame prawn rolls, and the honey roast pork puffs. Around this point you’ll consider the shanghai pork dumplings and think, well that’s a lot of pork. Ignore that voice, it also told you that emo-eye-patch fringe was a good idea. Go ahead and lean into the pork offerings and please note, the classic cheung fun is essential.
