    Great dim sum! The food could be spicier, but if you ask for it, your taste buds will get a memorable experience. Don't expect alcohol, though; the restaurant's had some license issues.

    Kung pao and egg fried rice were great. Pork belly bun was ok and sadly I could finish the Taiwanese omelette. Too wattery where the filling was

    Wasn't a fan this time round. Xiao long bao was too rubbery and not enough soup. Milk tea was nice and some parts of the pork belly was nice others too tough

    Xiao Long Baos here are mediocre. Skin too tough but upside is temp of the bao is perfect.

    Love the ambience, great knock-knock queuing system (be prepared to chill outside!) and authentic Taiwanese food !!! If you can handle your spicy-ness, be sure to ask for extra spicy ;)

    Excellent Chinese food in a very nice setting. Best dishes were the crab meat xiao long bao and the sticky rice.

    The sticky rice cooked in bamboo was the highlight. The seafood noodle was unimpressive and it only contained one prawn.

    A soup dumpling house for the ages, but you can't go wrong with the rest of the menu either.

    Best dumplings in London and everything else is awesome too. My ears always keep popping when I'm here, though! Weirdest thing ever.

    Forget the crappy service at Wong Kei, come to Legends (may be a queue but for good reason) and enjoy literally anything on the menu. And trust the very capable waitstaff here on whatever they reco.

    Beware. They tell you to wait 10 min, then take you inside and make you wait by the toilets for 30 min

    Fast service and great food. A bit expensive and small portions, but still a good choice if you are in chinatown. After you finish your food, you might feel you are been kicked out....

    The soup dumplings here, of course, are amazing! If it's just the two of you I highly recommend a trio: spicy wontons, pork & prawn soup dumplings, and the duck over rice. Perfectly portioned, <£20!

    they pre-cook all the non dim sum dishes and microwave before serving.12.5% tip is already included in the price.

    An opportunity to enjoy some of the less common delicacies. Takes a little bravery for the average Londoner to order from this menu, but the food was really tasty

    Soup dumplings, crispy beef and pork belly all outstanding here. Quality of food on par with a high end place like mr chow without the sticker shock

    Eat dumplings when they are warm, not hot! You will have much more taste

    Try Xialongbao and pork belly. Avoid morning glory. Be prepared to wait in the queue.
