SquareMeal Review of
Dim T Hampstead
Dim T’s sexy good looks – all low lighting, dark wood & orchids – are aimed at those with Hakkasan tastes on a Chinese takeout budget. The menu takes a ‘greatest hits’ approach to South-East
Asia’s cooking, throwing in a few fusion numbers for good measure. Sweet & sour chicken, crispy duck pancakes, Thai green curry & even the dim sum (after which the group is named) are
pretty unambitious examples of their respective genres; the noodles are rather better – customers choose their own, plus toppings & sauces from the bar. A brief list of teas, juices, lemonades,
exotic cocktails & quaffable sub-£18 wines completes the offering. Staff ‘try hard to keep you happy’, which should be achievable if all you are after is a quick, fun & affordable feed.
