Square Meal Review of Princess Garden ?

There’s more than a touch of the 80s about this glossy 30-year-old round the corner from Selfridges, with its plate-glass windows, well-lit white interiors, antiques & displays of Chinese artefacts. But despite its impressive appearance, Princess Garden isn’t as pricey as you might think: the superior-quality, daytime dim sum isn’t much more expensive than Chinatown, & evening bills aren’t unduly high. The remit – familiar Cantonese fare with the odd twist – is done to a high standard, seasoning is spot on, & the menu’s sensible length takes the pot luck out of ordering. Crispy seafood rolls & soft-shell crab with spicy salt are faultless starters that might precede fail-safe sweet & sour pork or Dover sole with ginger & spring onions. Polite, thoughtful staff cope admirably with a cosmopolitan mix of shoppers, American Embassy staff, off-duty suits & Chinese families.

    The Blog About Nothing... in London! :: Dim Sum in Mayfair

    Weeks ago was Marisol's birthday so we went to have Dim Sum brunch in Princess Garden. Operating since 1983 this Pekinese cuisine establishment have been offering Chinese fine dining in the Mayfair area, and it’s on top of lists to have the steamer baskets. The MenuDecorWe shared several dishes, including the wasabi prawns, the Princess Garden spare ribs, crispy fried seaweed, some Singapore noodles, and a few baskets of dim sum. The prawns were quite good, not too spicy though. Wasabi prawnsThe spare ribs were amazing, the seasoning and flavour is top notch. RibsMarisol died for the crispy seaweed, it was perfectly executed with a nice crunchy texture. SeaweedThe noodles were nice, I’m used to them a bit more on the spicy side, but they were pretty good with great flavour. Finally the dim sum were just excellent, quite well executed. Dim Sum timePork bunsWe enjoyed a great Sunday with quite good food. You can also enjoy a Bolivar cigar at the bar.CigarSeaweed reminds me the Seinfeld episode “The Pez Dispenser” Kramer: Go ahead smell, smellSteve: Yeah, so?Kramer: Do you recognise it? The beachSteve: What are you talking about?Kramer: Oh, I'm talking about the beachSteve: What about it?Kramer: You know the way you smell when you first come home from the beach? Well, I want to make a cologne that captures the essence of that smell. Oh yeah!Steve: That is the dumbest idea I have ever heardKramer: Oh, wait, did you here what I just said?Steve: Do you think people are going to pay $80 a bottle to smell like dead fish and seaweed? That's why people take showers when the come home from the beach. It's an objectionable offensive odourPrincess GardenT: 020 7493 3223Asian CuisineApprox Damage: £25ppArea: MayfairBorough: City of WestminsterView Larger Map Get Directions View Bird's Eye
