SquareMeal Review of Feng Shang Princess

There’s something rather romantic about this Chinese restaurant aboard a pagoda-style boat floating on Regent’s Canal. It looks best at night when its twinkling lights reflect on the water. Once on board, keep your eyes on the pretty views through the wraparound windows, as the smart interiors look a little worn. The menu isn’t exactly cutting edge, swerving from Cantonese to Szechuan & Beijing cuisines, delivering a familiar roll-call of dishes. Seafood lettuce wraps, prawn toast & crispy aromatic duck with pancakes are typical starters, with noodles & rice to follow, plus beef with black-bean sauce, crispy chicken with mango & chilli paste, or sweet & sour prawns. It’s all perfectly good, although the Titanic prices aren’t necessarily warranted. Perhaps that’s why Feng Shang is often short of passengers.

the great thing about malaysian chinese food is the complexity of flavors. you won't find that here. the seafood laksa was bland and insipid. the salt-and-pepper squid tasted mainly of salt. the vegetable spring rolls are heavy on the breading, light on the vegetables. and the sweet and spicy prawns are gloppy and thick with constarch. ugh. what a waste of a gorgeous and romantic location. i was so excited to eat there.

Its a bit strange this place, especially on a wet March evening when there are only 8 other diners. The food is a bit mixed up as its Chinese yet tries to include Japanese in the style of Nobu, which I must say it does rather well until you remember you are not in Park Lane or Mayfair but on a boat on a cold wet night in an almost empty floating dining room near Chalk Farm. The website promises that the proprietor creates a special ambience for her customers and is always on hand which was not true of my table but was of the table next to ours where two very large middle aged Eastern European prostitues sat with one rather skinny English IT programmer. I wouldn't go back but we had a great time mostly due to the table we were listening in on. When we overheard “you had better eat up…you'll need all your strength later” we couldn't hold our laughter in and left feeling much better than before we went in. The food is good, its a bit overpriced and if you want black cod you are better off elsewhere but still for a one off its worth a visit (for people watching mainly).
