This is not easy to find. If you come from the Charing Cross Road end of Lisle Street it is tucked away in an alley on the north side of Lisle Street. Remarkably, it is a warren of a place on three floors seating no less than 500 people at a time. The cuisine here is the usual Cantonese fare, but to a much higher standard than is usual in Chinatown. On my last visit we had some excellent cold meats followed by a surprisingly good bean curd soup. Lobster was tender, rice was fragrant, and Chinese broccoli was very delicately steamed. Last visited June 2006.
