Went for the £28 dim sum meal. The experience was incredible. The view from the restaurant alone is worth it, and the food quality was amazing, with plenty of it. We will be going back.

The setting is fantastic, and after making our way past the many tourists looking for views were seated with views over West London. Chairs were particularly uncomfortable.
Service was slow, flippant, and undisciplined. On a number of occasions we had to complain to get service moving. Coke was served flat, then bottle replacements served without glass, ice or lemon.
Food was excellent, although the Prawns with Tea Leaves, whilst well cooked, was very bland. In fairness, the Manager changed the dish for us at no charge.
The bill was heavy, 2/3 star Michelin level, without the service to match.
OK, but I will not be returning - there are much better London Restaurants at more reasonable prices.

We had lunch here. We decided to go for the set menu which was £68 per head. We had a fantastic table overlooking the Thames and it was a clear day. It's quite expensive but you pay for the view. Our waiter was very helpful.

Very mediocre food. Expected as much so wasn't disappointed. Views are spectacular but we didn't get a table by the window so pointless going. Would not go again.

Booked the Dim Sum lunch as an early birthday treat for my daughter. I had seen some negative reviews regarding service, but our experience was fantastic. Service was prompt, efficient and friendly. The Dim Sum were superb and definitely filling (even my daughter chose green tea over dessert as we were so full). My request for a window table on arrival was granted easily, and we had a wonderful view. For my daughter, especially, it was a memorable occasion. I will definitely come again, and will certainly go for the signature soft shell chilli crab that I saw on another table (I've had it at Hutong in Hong Kong, and it is superb). If I had a criticism, it would be that ordering wine by the glass, the servings seemed relatively small. But that's being picky.

Excellent ambiance and great views. Food is tasty but you're mostly paying for the atmosphere (you'll get the same sort of yumminess for much less at plenty of other restaurants not high in the sky). My only complaint is that we were a bit rushed. Our booking was for 2:30, and we were told that the kitchen would be closing at 3pm, which meant we had to order quickly, and couldn't order more later. (It isn't unusual when you're eating dim sum to try a few things, see how hungry you still are, and order some more.) Staff was friendly and welcoming.
