Ding Hao London restaurant review
What I like about Ding Hao is that that they have menu sheet, so you just tick off what you want to order. This makes it so much easier and it comes in especially handy when you have a big group of people (imagine trying to remember 15 dishes for the waiter)! Service is usually quite fast, although there's no starter, main concept so the dishes will arrive as and when they're ready.
Ding Hao restaurant review - a selection of dim sum dumplings
Vietnamese spring rolls and lemon dipping sauce
As for the food, well it's just delicious! Tasty little bite sized dumplings, crispy fried dishes and meat filled cheung fun, all washed down with a bowl of their spicy prawn dumpling soup. Most restauants do similar dim sum dishes, but the reason that I keep going back to Ding Hao is that their dishes just taste that little bit better compared to the other restaurants I've been to. That and the fact that they give you 2 types of chilli sauce to go with your meal!
Char sui cheung fun (BBQ pork filled noodle rolls)
Wafer wrapper king prawns
Spicy dumpling soup
Bar one occasion (when we had a big dinner party), I've always been impressed with the service. They also have a nice pink and red decor, which I think gives it a touch of luxury and authenticity. Overall, one of my favourite restaurants in London Chinatown and definitely one to check out if you love dumplings as much as I do.
Ps. Ding Hao used to be called Top of the town. Dim sum is only served before 5pm, but if you go on a weekday afternoon, then there's a small discount on all dishes.
