Damn @estherlimtf you're in my hood! Impromptu @list meet up ASAP! We can dim sum!
  1. So these are the two I usually go to:
    Reasonably priced and centrally located (Chinatown).
  2. Golden Dragon
    Static
    Always a bit of a queue. They don't take bookings on the weekend.
  3. Orient London
    Static
    This use to be Jade Garden. I quite sure it's the same owners who just revamped the place. Busy on the weekends like any good place.
  4. Old school dim sum:
    You want some trolley service? I gotcha.
  5. New World
    Static
    One of the few places in the UK that still offers trolley service. Prices are low but service is inconsistent.
  6. Get out of China Town:
    There are some great places out of Soho if you are willing to catch the bus/tube a few stops further.
  7. Royal China (Baker Street)
    Static
    It's always busy on the weekend with Chinese locals. Atmosphere is great here makes me feel right back in HK.
  8. Yi-Ban
    Static
    By the Docklands so a bit further out but well worth the trip.
  9. Pricier dim sum:
    These are high end dim sum places. I haven't tried them all but I intend to at some point. (Dim sum is such a comfort food for me that I'm just not sure how I feel paying high end prices for it. 🤔)
  10. Yauatcha
    Static
    Michelin star dim sum also has really pretty desserts.
  11. Royal China Club
    Static
    Less hustle and bustle of your normal dim sum place. All meats are organic.
  12. A Wong
    Static
    On the to watch list. Andrew Wong is doing wonders here. Some dishes are actually quite cheap but all differs. I recommend looking this place up.
  13. Bonus tip: Best Chinese BBQ
    Static
    Look no further then Four Seasons (unfortunately they don't do dim sum). ALWAYS a queue during dinner time. Roast pork and duck here is 💯🙌🏼.
  14. When in doubt: rule of thumb 'Go where the Chinese people are queuing'.
    We like to eat!
