SquareMeal Review of Jenny Lo's Teahouse

Jenny Lo's Teahouse permanently close in September 2018


Things move fast at this utilitarian pan-Asian café, which keeps the crowds happy and tables turning during the lunchtime and early-evening rush. Set up by the daughter of the late Ken Lo, whose suave restaurant Memories of China is round the corner, Jenny’s gaff is a lifesaver for time-strapped lunch-breakers and others on the move. Large paper menus are slapped down on refectory-style wooden tables, and punters pick from a concise list of Chinese, Thai and Vietnamese dishes ranging from bowls seafood laksa, chilli-beef soup or Singapore noodles to long-cooked pork belly with mushrooms on sticky rice, braised Szechuan-style aubergines and other dishes with sub-£10 price tags. Saké, Tiger beer and elderflower fizz offer liquid refreshment, along with cleansing green jasmine tea. Cash only; takeaways and local deliveries, too.

On a score of 1 – 10 for value for money we rate Wagamama's 9 Jenny Lo 2. Wagamama is fresher, better and cheaper. Basically the food at Jenny Lo's is micro waved packaged stuff. They don't take credit cards and they can't even supply a wine cooler. I can't imagine why anyone would want to return to such a pitifully overated fast food cafe with zero ambience
