    Looking to organise somewhere nice for a family meal in Chinatown.

    Can anyone recommend a nice place to eat there?

    Assuming the London one we have always had great dining experiences at Manchurian Legends or Mr Wong.

    Wong Keys at the very end. Renowned for its lack of customer service it's a cash only establishment and the food is awesome!

    Not been there for a few years, but the food certainly used to be great in the Wong Kei, and I've had some really funny "lack of service" moments in there. May well have changed by now, but back in the day I often wondered how you'd actually get out from the 5th floor if there were a fire, though :crazy:

    That sign looks wonky.

    If you are looking for great Cantonese food try the following Chinese restaurants in Queensway rather than Soho/Chinatown.

    1. Mandarin Kitchen (world famous lobster noodles - ask for the ginger sauce version)
    2. Royal China (great dim sum - but limited selection), also at Baker Street.
    3. Four Seasons (great/world famous roast duck)
