Everything about this restaurant screams ‘good from far, far from good’! From the lack of ambience, 80’s pop music playing and limited wine list, to the Aesop hand soap in the toilets that has actually been filled with a cheaper alternative, if this restaurant is prepared to masquerade that they are providing an expensive product (Aesop hand soap and lotion) but they are actually filling the bottles with cheap soap & lotion then I dread to think what they are doing with the food in the kitchen!! The only redeeming quality was the service. Every waiter who served us was great. They staggered the food as we requested, filled up our glasses when empty, cleared plates on time etc. It’s a shame the great waiters are let down by the other factors.
As a regular visitor to this trendy dim sum parlour, I was particularly impressed by my most recent visit. The food really was consistently excellent.
Rude manager, first thing he said when we arrived was that we needed to leave within 2 hours. Don’t mind the time limit, but you shouldn’t greet guests with such a message. At least say hello and welcome, them politely tell them that there’s a limit. When I explained this to the manager he got very defensive, didn’t apologise, just kept insisting that we had to leave within 2 hours. Such a shame, as we were only intending to stay for 1 hour anyway as we had other plans. So he lost all our goodwill for no reason. Terrible service, and very bad example to his staff.
This is my first bad review ever.
No customers were there when we dine which was a friday evening (hinting something).
The food was really not up to standard regarding the price.
If I were to recommend Chinese food as a chinese, I would recommend Jia which is in south kensington. The waitress was not polite at all. Do not dine there, you will regret it.
Booked to meet a friend here. The ambience is lovely as was the food. The service was a bit OTT. There were not enough people in the restaurant to keep the servers busy and they were always on us. As soon as we took the last dumpling they were over us taking the bowl. When we finished our food the waiter came up and moved everything off the table and wiped it down, felt like an awkward 5 minutes of silence with my friend and I waiting for this to be over. Service was a bit intrusive. I am all for good service but it was too much. Plus, very interruptive when I am catching up with a friend I haven't seen in ages.
Very good dim sum and excellent duck !
Fairly relaxed ambience, and quiet, which is good for actually talking (hate restaurants with super loud music). Good for sharing various dim sum with one or two others. Decent dim sum and good side dishes. Charsui buns are such delicious comfort food!! Tasty inventive cocktails too. Fast and friendly service. Not cheap but not super expensive either.
Very nice décor with low lights and plenty of greenery gave for a good ambiance. The menu was quite limited but all was well executed. Great shanghai dumplings, the king crab legs were delicious but the wagyu puffs didn't quite come up to Yautchua standards. Fairly expensive overall but then it is not a cheap neighbourhood!
Went with a friend for a nice catch up and we were so pleased with the amazing cocktails and the creative but authentic menu! Absolutely worth a visit. Memorable in a great way! Have the lobster dim sum it’s quite something!
The dim sum were a bit of a let down not bad but not great for the price.
Overall it's not a bad place but really overpriced.
Service is very good, very friendly people but the food is really
Great service and great food. Overall a really pleasantly evening.
I have eaten at Bo Lang many times, and am yet to be disappointed. The new addition is crispy / Peking duck (with pancakes, etc), and it is an excellent addition to an already very appealing menu. The dim sum is at the top end of what I have had even in Asia. The venue is rather small and dark, but cozy, and the ambience fits perfectly with the food. The wine list offers a good selection of medium priced wines which generally fit very well with the food. The service was slightly sporadic the night I visited in terms of attention to our needs, but everything else was perfect. I highly recommend this well-kept secret in Chelsea!
We loved it! Great food, wonderful service!
Awesome as usual. Food was lovely and service impeccable. Was wonderful to share great food on this birthday occasion.
A great find. Wonderful food and good service. It was special.
Decor not impressive but food was amazing for all of us, not formal dining but great food for lunch.
from the service to the presentation of the food, restaurant is excellent. congratulations!
Very good dim sum! Loved the food, perfect lunch place. I recommend the Singapore vermicelli noodles, spring rolls, mushroom dim sum, lobster dim sum. So tasty!
Delicious food and cocktails, great service and nice decor
Great food, nicely presented and overall a top restaurant
Lovely food though the restaurant was rather noisy- the hard decor doesn't help to absorb noise unfortunately but otherwise I would recommend it.
No soft furnishings in the place, I could hear the ladies next to me louder than my boyfriend. Dimsum was very tasty, as was cod but overpriced and pretentious in general. Normal for Chelsea, you probably wouldn't go there for value.
Great dim sum & other dishes (although could have been spicier!) Excellent service from all the staff. Highly recommended for those looking for dim sum in Chelsea!
A lovely restaurant with character
We had lovely dim sum and some veggie accompaniments.
I am avoiding alcohol so had one of their virgin cocktails which was lovely and not too sweet.
The food was great but it's not great value for money - their starter of 6 dim sum was £18! for 6 tiny dim sum!
At the end of the meal, we didn't fancy dessert, so ordered green tea for the two of us, when we got the bill I was astonished that they charge £18 for a pot of green tea!!!
total bill was £91 for lunch we had:
2 x dim sum set (6 pieces each)
1 x glass wine
1 x non-alcoholic cocktail
1 x stir fried aubergine
1 x stir fried pak choi
1 x pot green tea
Really nice and relaxed setting for great dim sum.
Excellent food, menu very good size and get exactly what you order! Best dim sum i've had. Staff explain and offered us to try experimental coacktails not on the menu. Very enjoyable and not pressured by staff. Amazing food and amazing restaurant - will be back.
Charming staff have always been a highlight of this Brompton Cross fixture, and that remained the case on our most recent visit. Otherwise, however, the formula struck me as beginning to feel just a little bit tired. Perhaps the chef was on holiday? There was nothing 'wrong' with the food, but nothing special about it either.
Very good quality of food but at the expensive end.
excelente calidad en los alimentos pero demasiado caro
Dim sums are amazing. Tables are slightly smaller and can feel a bit cramped as u get in. However food and service makes up for it. Would highly recommend dim sum platter.
Delicious food and excellent friendly service with great cocktails.
Average food at expensive price.
Very hot cosy interior with an air conditioning that fails to cool on a warm day.
Really disappointing food. The xiaolong bao was absolutely atrocious - just not right at all: no soup, terrible filling: tastes nothing like proper xiaolong bao. Short rib puff was probably the best of what we had.
Service was pretty good, but overall, terrible value for money.
Always a gem
Disappointed. No ambiance. Food only okay. Smell of toilet wafting up the stairs. Member of staff went downstairs with rubber gloves to sort it. Came upstairs and washed his hands then came over to us and said the smell was from the 'essence' they use. Must have thought we were stupid unless they use 'essence of poo'.
We've had mixed experiences at Bo Lang. Our first dinner (several months ago) was quite good and we found the dim sum to be tasty and well prepared. Our recent visit was disappointing; dumplings were fair; some were very doughy and thick, others were bland and hard. Noodles dishes were decent, but seems as tho Bo Lang's food can be inconsistent. Great location and nice for outdoor dining off Walton St.
Good ambience, service is always top class. The environment is amazing, tucked in a quiet street, away from the crow. Superb bars just around the corner on Walton street for after dinner.
