Chinese Cricket Club closed permanently

If cricket leaves you stumped, and Chinese cricket even more so, don't be put off by this contemporary restaurant's wacky moniker. The Chinese Cricket Club may be named after the national team, but it's only nominally sport-themed with a few signed bats dotted about the muted, rather corporate dining room. Instead, the focus is on Szechuan food with some dim sum added for the City's express-lunch crowd. Classics such as kung po prawns and aromatic crispy duck sit alongside chef's signature dishes including a rainbow array of dumplings (the duck versions are deliciously rich), soft-shell crab with Szechuan peppercorns and, for dessert, a lychee terrine given just the right amount of kick with wasabi ice cream – all delivered by unfailingly polite staff. The succinct wine list has been well chosen with heat and spice in mind.

I went with the CCC with some friends who used to live in Hong Kong so very picky about Chinese food. We all found the food to be superb – authentic, tasty and fresh. I would definitely go there again. The service was very attentive and helpful. The wine recommendation was perfect.

The food was bland. We tried the dimsum which tasted somewhat flat. It wasn't bad, but just not among the better dimsum's I've had. the Lemon Chicken was the same. Not the worst I had, but far from a got-to-come-back dish. the service was OK, if somewhat lacking confidence (maybe new staff?). The atmosphere was OK, but not an event-type place. it is a typical hotel setting – modern lines and quiet setting but lacking character.

We really enjoyed our celebration at the Chinese Cricket Club reently, the food and service were fantastic and the menu just that little bit different. I am delighted to see that the ‘CCC’ is being recognised as one of the best Chinese restaurants in London. We will be back with friends soon.
