Like with so many Restaurants in London, The Good Earth is a place one has to “understand”. The reviews here below seem to suggest that people either love it or hate it. However, I think it is about “what to expect”. It is a restaurant which does what it does and does it very well: classic Chinese food. What I mean by this is well executed, well sourced but “old fashioned” dishes (Try anything in their X.O. sauce!). Having said that, if you go there expecting Min Jiang or Hakkasan you are bound to be disappointed, as the place oozes of late 70s and early 80s “charm” and the cooking is a high-quality interpretation of the old favorites, rahter than the explosive flavours found at the more modern or “pan-Asian” restaurants. However, with the new wave of Asian restaurants in London it is reassuring that there is this dependable performer which ticks all the boxes if the old-fashioned “London-Chinese” is what you are looking for.
