Imperial China London

White Bear Yard, 25a Lisle Street, London, London, WC2H 7BA
Approach this good and comfortable Cantonese restaurant over a red footbridge - giving it a feel of destination.

Expect a relaxing atmosphere, with various wood panelled rooms, generally well-spaced tables and subdued lighting.

Their daytime Dim Sum is particularly recommended, being amongst the best in Chinatown - a host of Chinese diners, particularly at weekends, reinforcing this opinion. Indeed various high-ranking Chinese statesmen have been known to eat here.

You would expect all this to come at a price, and indeed if you push the boat out, this is achievable - however, choose carefully and prices are modest.

The extensive menu lists all the expected favourites such as 'Barbecued Spare Ribs'; 'Sesame Prawn Toasts' and 'Satay Beef' among the starters.

'Sweet & Sour Chicken'; 'Barbecued Roast Pork Char Siu' and 'Singapore Noodles' amongst the mains.

But dig deeper and you'll find dishes such as 'Steamed Scallops in their Shells'; 'Deep-Fried Soft Shell Crabwith Spicy Salt & Pepper; 'Steamed Eel with Black Bean Sauce' and much more.

Desserts are of the Lychees/Toffee Apple and Ice Cream variety.

Good efficient service competes the picture.
