Consistently good food and service - best Chinese restaurant in the area. We are particularly impressed by the attention to little details (they wipe the tables down properly for example).

We were looking for something slightly different with a good view of the river.
Both the food and the service was good and we would recommend it to anyone.

Honestly, one of the best restaurant experiences I have ever had! The staff were friendly and welcoming. If I'm not mistaken it's a family business, thus making the experience all the more authentic.

Food was delicious, not oily and greasy as you usually find with Chinese food. The menu had lots of great options but we went for aromatic duck and selection of main dishes including a kung po prawn with side of rice. The food was flavoursome and left us wanting more and the prawns were large and juicy.

For a riverside view, attentive service without being full on, the value for money was good. Already looking forward to going back again.

Great place: lovely staff, lots of choice on the menu, really good food. And they let us in before opening time, to avoid the rain. A cut above the usual Chinese restaurant experience.

Our Sunday lunch at the Riverview was very pleasant. We had the price fixe menu, augmented by favourite dishes, which meant that it was excellent value. And once eating was done we moved on to the river side terrace for coffee and, eventually, another bottle of wine ( we were having too good a time to go home ).

Very clean and friendly. Food and service was great.
Was two very large parties of men when I was there, and our table was right next to them. Was very loud and noises in there and we couldn't really talk to each other so didn't over stay out meal. Which was a shame as would have been nice to sit and relax afterwards and chat.
So be prepared........

The view over the River Thames is lovely which adds to the ambience.

I am so glad to have discovered this restaurant! The food is so fresh and tasty - I recommend the duck and pancakes especially! The service was great and the food was not pricey - starters, mains, sides and drinks came to £48 with service for two people. I will definitely return.

I have lived nearby for several years and wanted to go a few time but never got round to it. I'm glad I now have. The food was great and pretty good value too. The restaurant was relatively empty though and the decor is slightly tired but all in all a great little restaurant with amazing river views - I will be going back.

One of my favourite hidden gems... this is on the water with a lovely view in Wapping. The food is amazing and so authentic, with serive that is helpful and relaxed. With the set menu early bird offer, value is great! 2 of us had the menu and 2 went a la carte. We went for the crispy duck to start, and the fixed starters we chose were satay chicken and spring rolls. the fixed menu inc soup next. Then we had mains of sweet and sour chicken, chicken in lbakc bean sauce, lemon chicken. And I had beef ho fun which was amazing! We asked for extra chilli in a couple of dishes and it didnt disappoint.
