SquareMeal Review of Chai Wu

Right next to Shoe Heaven in Harrods, Chai Wu is perfectly positioned to draw in well-heeled punters with a taste for fashionable cooking. The menu is mainly Chinese, but features a strong Pan-Asian accent, so you’ll find Korean lobster alongside Szechuan lamb. We stuck to Chinese, kicking off with an exquisite dim sum platter in which a plump lobster dumpling topped with caviar and a truffled prawn stole the show. The whole Beijing duck, carved tableside, was served with the head attached: not for the faint-hearted, but well worth it for the indulgent delight of juicy meat and crispy skin which we were encouraged to sprinkle with sugar. Less successful were the Wagyu puffs, which suffered from soggy bottoms, and a strange combination of sweet and sour chicken with dragon fruit. Service is kind and welcoming and the room has plenty of hustle and bustle thanks to the open kitchen complete with robata grill. Even if you’re not shopping for shoes, Chai Wu is well worth a visit – as long as you don’t mind eating during store opening hours.
