Fodor's Review

There's no printed menu at this quirky, top-rated family-run Chinese stalwart (est. 1982), situated a couple of blocks south of Sloane Square in Pimlico. Instead, baffled diners state their culinary preferences to owner-chef Peng, or his son Michael, and sit back, relax, and chop-stix their way through a succession of highly tasty, tapas-sized Chinese dishes to share. Using a blizzard of garlic, ginger, fiery Szechuan chilis, and red peppercorns, a loyal, tanned, and gleaming SW1 crowd might enjoy 12 to 14 unfailingly delicious dishes like Hunan water-fried dumplings, sliced duck, signature pork broth with Chinese mushrooms, crispy frogs' legs, pig's ears, or pungent crab noodle soup. There's no particular logic to what you might receive, but portions are generous, the wines intrigue, and the ongoing surprise is all part of the fun.
