Chinese
Modern Chinese with a mix of Sichuan and other regional cuisines.

We use both classic and modern flavors and techniques with a strong emphasis on amazing vegan food and wines, as well as handmade dumplings.

Our food is made for sharing and we offer several banquet options for groups and an all you can eat yum cha on the weekends.

We’re open 7 days for dinner and lunch Friday, Saturday and Sunday, and brunch on Saturday and Sunday.

Bookings of 6+ do require a banquet order due to the small size of our kitchen.

Been here a few times for the vegan banquet and yum Cha brunch. This time we went for the normal banquet and it was a good mix of the classics like tofu and bbq meat (duck & pork). Loved the kung pao chicken. The server was attentive and friendly - catering to our dietary request and explaining the dishes that came out. The banquets were good value for money and they let us takeaway the leftovers.

Would like to see more traditional dumplings on a yum cha menu. Pumpkin is not to my liking and many others and not a traditional Chinese/Hong Kong dumpling filling. The Xia long Bau were very good as was the tofu and spicy sauce. Popcorn chicken was great and enjoyed by all as were the traditional Asian greens. Yum.
Service was prompt and friendly and great to have experienced Yum Cha waiter who managed the service to the table expertly.
The venue is very cleverly decorated and great to see someone willing to take a risk and cross the heritage with modern Chinese decor. Loved it. Gave a feeling of openness yet our table situated beside a larger group worked well without any intrusion of other diners due to the comfort and space created by varied furniture settings and pieces.
Highly recommend and want to go back to try the delicious lunch and night time offerings on the menu.
Thank you for bringing an Asian flavour to the Paddington scene.

I booked online for 7 people and had expected to order from the menu but was told on arrival that with more than six people only banquet menu was on offer. Chef’s choice. This was disappointing to be told as the online booking did not make this stipulation. Subsequently food arrived on the table adhoc and was imbalanced with too many fried options. The cost for the meal offer was too high. I had just returned from China, where the food was sensational, in the rural south and north in Beijing, so was disappointed with the dishes.

Hello GChina, thanks for taking the time to leave your feedback. We do explain the need to order as a banquet as part of our online booking form, but will try to make it more visible. Thank you for you feedback regarding the number of fried options in the banquet, we will discuss this with the chefs.

For a family of vegans, this was absolute food heaven. We had the vegan yum cha and the food just kept coming. The owner had a great understanding of veganism and couldn't have done anymore to satisfy us. Food was delicious, service was great, our omni friend was sooo impressed with the food he said it was worth turning vegan for. Highly recommend this restaurant.
