Find this comfortable restaurant, made famous by Kenneth Lo, handily close to Victoria railway station.
Tables are well spaced and separated by Chinese wooden screens, making this an idea venue for a special occasion or private business conversation. This is reflected in the firm prices.
While the menu sticks to what the British have become familiar with - Cantonese favourites (with a few offerings from other regions, slipped in); rather than some of the more adventurous fare offered in many recent openings.
So, you might begin with the likes of 'Crispy 'Seaweed" with Almonds'; 'Fragrant Braised Aubergine'; 'Steamed Prawn Dumplings' or 'Five-Spice Spare Ribs'.
Maybe to be followed by 'Hot-Fried Sichuan Spicy King Prawns'; 'Mongolian Barbecue of Lamb in Lettuce Puffs'; 'Beef with Green Peppers and Black Bean Sauce' or 'Steamed Sea Bass with Ginger and Spring Onions'.
Desserts include various sorbets to the more elaborate 'Peking Sugar-Spun Glazed Apple and Banana with Coconut Ice Cream'.
Service is both friendly and professional.
