SquareMeal Review of River View

There are few tables in Wapping more impressive than those on the River View’s terrace, particularly when the sun’s shining & your bottle of Chablis & whole sea bass are beckoning. Over the last two decades, this Thames-side Chinese has built up a loyal following for its seafood & more besides: soft-shell crabs with chilli & salt, monkfish hotpot with ginger & spring onion or scallops in black bean sauce take some beating, though crispy duck with pancakes, spare ribs & spring rolls doubtless sneak onto many an order. Set lunches & ‘early bird’ specials (£15.60 for three courses) should leave you with change to spend on the fine wine list. It can seem a little dreary inside, although the blue & black interior is more alluring by night.
