    It was my wife’s birthday we booked for 2 children. & 2 adults we walked and booked table for 4 only had table for 2 got to our table and sent us to the basement as they were so full took our order and drinks came 30 mins after we ordered them when arrive the ice bucket with our Prosecco was absolutely filthy has 4 ice cubes with 1/3 of water …Starters came after an hour after being ordered asked for extra pancakes with our duck and satay sauce which never came !! When complained came after 10 mins & satay sauce was straight out of the fridge served cold !! Complained again to the waiters after 1.5 hours later main course came which came 1 at of time came out every 5 mins different dishes couldn’t eat together then got presented with a bill of £197 completely spoilt the whole night we been coming for years food has definitely gone down hill including the service no ambient no background Music will definitely not be returning and we go to alot of restaurants and we never complain but this was a disaster meal !!

    Second time here and I’d come back still. Food is tasty. Location at the edge of Regent’s Park and by the canal makes a walk after a good meal a lovely afternoon out

    The outside view of the very attractive Chinese craft is a great start. Inside it's a bit less special. By an open window on the lower deck, my companion thought it a bit smelly but we closed the window and it was fine thereafter (I have no sense of smell). The food is attractively-presented and tasty without being amazing. The waiter was enjoyably and gently ironic ("Is this duck steamed?" "Yes, otherwise I'm afraid it would be raw..."). We enjoyed it.

    OpenTable dulled the experience...as it allowed me to reserve for 5.30pm...for us to arrive only for the restaurant to be shut! It didn't open until 6pm. Doesn't take much for the correct info to be displayed on the OpenTable booking system. The actual restaurant experience was good. Waiting staff are functional and friendly. Serves largely western clientele...prob because the food is very westernised Cantonese food. So menu isn't massive as it sticks to the regular dishes like sweet and sour, etc. The quality is decent and tasty but value isn't great for the portion size. But for a special occasion because of the location, it's worth going at least once. Would recommend 👍

    Went for dinner to celebrate my sisters 28th Birthday. Food was very good however the whole experience was let down by the service. Appeared that the restaurant had double booked and so were keen to rush us through the meal. This spoiled the whole experience a tad.

    Overly busy, noisy & after being sat at our table, we were left alone without menus for 15 mins or so. When the server came over, she asked what we wanted, we replied ‘menus would be a good start’ Took our drinks order and we waited another 15 mins before we got the water & wine. Very expensive for what it is but then again you’re paying for their rent & rates. Starters - ordered the mixed platter at £14.50 pp, we had half a spring roll each, 2 prawns, half a prawn toast each, 3 ribs in total, greasy over cooked calamari & a load of deep fried seaweed. Totally not worth the £29!! Thankfully the mains were better with good portions & flavours. Server gave a drink on the house because we asked for it. Total bill was £182.00 for two and we won’t be going back.

    First time to come here; loved that it's a floating boat and the decor is lovely. Food is tasty though more expensive than I'm used to for similar menu in Chinatown but can't fault the flavours and execution; would return!

    I normally love going to this restaurant - reliably good food, fun environment, but our last visit was marred by particularly abrasive service. The staff argued with us and themselves about where we were sitting (saying it was reserved, and we had reserved) and the waiter was incredibly pushy through out the meal, rushing us and bringing out the food when it suited them, in all very much giving the impression that we were not wanted. It was such a shame, I had been very enthusiastic about our visit with my friends but will now think twice about going again.

    Arrived to a queue of customers who were being ignored. Open table booking was lost in system and staff were happy to be rid of the burden of us. Disastrous evening for us and profitable night for the restaurant. Not coming here for dinner again.

    A unique setting, but perhaps better appreciated in daylight so you can see the canal/surroundings. Waiters very knowledgable, but less engagement on a personal level and more focussed on taking the order. Chilli Beef is excellent.

I definitely would recommend this place and they will see me very soon

    I can’t believe i am writing such a negative review about this place. Firstly the food was brought out so quickly which was not a good sign. The food was not great especially the crispy shredded beef. Barely any meat. The sweet and sour chicken was also poor. Has left me feeling sick. The cocktails were really sour. The standard apple and orange juice was the best selling point. And to top it all off i saw mice running around the establishment near the main counter. Fair to say i will not be returning.

    Decent Chinese food, on a great venue, but you aren't going to be served quickly. Service isn't bad, they just don't have enough staff so it is very manic, and you can be waiting a long time, especially on the 20% periods of the day.
