Terrible restaurant. Food quality was very poor. Room was unimpressive. Nothing to recommend it.

Quite easily the best Chinese I've ever had... a little pricey, but what do expect when situated in the Dorchester? Instantly felt like a rock star!

The bar staff is really friendly. But after that it wasn't that great.

We were in the private room, with a set menu for £75 per head. We were left disappointed & hungry. There was not enough dim sum to go around, which set the theme for the rest of the meal. We didn't get to try many of the dishes because there wasn't enough!

The food was lacking in quantity & quality. Kate Moss might eat there, but that's probably because she eats a lot less than the average person does! Also, watch out for all the little bones left in the chicken dishes.

I have been here twice and, being Chinese, I can vouch that the food is poor. Granted the Peking Duck was nicely roasted and attentively carved, but for £xx, having a tiny bowl of soup and a take-away style noodles was certainly far from value for money. Service the second time wasn't too good either, as we were sat diagonally opposite the reception desk in the small room off to the side. It's generally hard to get noticed there. To conclude... if you want proper Chinese, go somewhere else.

I thought the ambience was electric.

The bar is wonderful for a pre-dinner drink - cocktails were delicious and the staff were very welcoming. Unfortunately it all went a bit down hill after that. The restaurant looks like your average Chinese restaurant, the menu selection is that of an average Chinese restaurant and when the food comes you wish you'd actually been to an average Chinese restaurant!

My husband took me there for lunch just before Christmas as a special treat. We ordered a large selection of dim sum. A couple of the dishes were good - the ribs in particular were great. But the lobster dumplings (at £22) were totally bland, and the rest of the food was nothing to shout about.

I'd go back to the bar for cocktails, but then I'd go upstairs to the Grill to eat - that's supposed to be great.

Been several times. Timeless, exceptionally high end and amazing food. The bar for dim sum possibly even better than the restaurant.

Food was great but extremely overpriced - £20 for 1 prawn! The Dorchester is, as always, lovely... but can't get over feeling I've been taken for a ride to eat here. Hakkasan is the better option.
