With another Friday night traffic jam journey to the City from work (it *only* took one hour this time!) we still got there and had dinner at an unusually early time before 6pm. One advantage is that we managed to score a table straight away and avoid the lines that seemed to be forming as we were finishing.
Service was fairly quick - they took little time to bring out dishes, which was great since I was hungry!
Glossy black menus with pictures- It's great that more restaurants are adopting these, as I love a bit of visual aid when it comes to ordering food.
They also have quite a variety of drinks and desserts (sadly didn't have room for dessert! *gasp*)
Condiments - chilli, soy and vinegar - I notice that they didn't provide us with anything to put the sauce in. Are you just meant to use your bowl? I didn't use them anyway, but was just curious.
Bubble milk tea with pearls
Pork xiao long baos- these were so awesome, light delicate skins with a crazy amount of soup in them!
Shanghai noodles with pork and vegetable - these could have done with a bit more flavour
Moreish pan fried pork dumplings - crispy skins and juicy on the inside- yum!
They definitely beat Shanghai Tang by a mile - with their quick service, cheap and tasty food. Will be back soon for a dumplings fix again.
