It makes a change to see people flocking to the outer reaches of Docklands for pleasure, not business, & you can be sure many of them are heading to Yi-Ban. Even when there’s nothing doing at the nearby Excel, this sleek modern restaurant is generally abuzz with business associates & Chinese families enjoying yum cha & the thrilling proximity of planes from nearby London City Airport. The extensive menu features all the usual stuff (plus a few rogue Thai dishes), though seafood is the real star here: lobster various ways (with hot & spicy salt, for example), abalone with Chinese mushrooms, sizzling garlic scallops, & chef’s specials including black cod with sweet soy are luxurious choices fit for the show-stopping setting. Service, alas, can be ‘slow & rude’.
