Sleek, woody furnishings help attract wealthy locals to Kaifeng, which offers just about everything you would expect of a British Chinese restaurant – a huge menu, bustling atmosphere, Sunday buffets & a takeaway menu. But it’s kosher too, so rather than sweet & sour pork you’ll find a lamb equivalent, & there’s no kung po prawns or soft-shell crab. Not that the menu seems depleted: it’s a lengthy affair showcasing all the Anglo-Cantonese favourites (aromatic duck with pancakes, crispy shredded beef, & all). Cross-cultural interlopers such as salt-beef chop suey might be worth avoiding, however. Kosher meat doesn’t come cheap, so expect to fork out handsomely for meals, with 15% service charge further boosting bills. Lunch is a much more financially attractive proposition, with set menus from £20 per person.
