Squaremeal Review of Plum Valley ?

The minimal, grey on black, slate & leather stylings of this slinky Chinatown interloper look expensive, but the menu remains affordable. It roams around China, Malaysia & Singapore, offering northern claypot chicken with Shaoxing wine, ho fun noodles with prawns, Fujian fried rice, & luxurious Hakkasan-style fusion dishes such as grilled foie-gras dumplings or black cod with honey & Champagne. There’s plenty of room over three levels, including family-friendly tables on the first floor, & a karaoke room for civilised hen parties & corporate sessions. Plum Valley ‘stands out’ with its broadly Asian cooking & plenty of expats understand what the kitchen is up to – even if the local fashion is towards authentic regional Chinese cuisine. Wines kick off at £13, & cocktails such as the lychee-based blossom bellini cost £9.50.

Decently classy place in London's China Town

Quite a strange place this – its all slate and mood lights and stuff, but the branded chopsticks are put on paper napkins. Its the little inconsistencies in this place which prevent it from being a solid 4*, as does the weird layout of the whole thing. Apart from that, the food was perfectly passable but could have been better. Stupid example – the chili-pepper squid was not cleaned properly and could have done with a lot more chili. Decent value though, and pretty fast.

Very superior and original dim sum offerings presented much more elegantly than most Chinese places in Soho. Prices higher than average for a Chinatown restaurant. Mainly Western clientele – so you don't get the feeling you are eating in a 100% authentic place – maybe Chinese people don't go because it's a bit “smarter” and less traditional than average. The whole place is a bit dimly lit and sepulchral, bench seats are too low and service can be extremely slow. Strongly recommended for unusual dim...

This Chinatown restaurant stands out amoung the other traditional Chinese eaterys you expect to find along the strip yet fits so well with the night life of a busy London. The Interior of dark chic design and the lightening perfect for most occasions at this venue. We were greeted by a very welcoming Hostess who while taking us to our seats on the third gave us a little tour of the place. The menu is as you would expect but was superbly prepared and well presented.Kung Pow Chicken and the addition...
