Shikumen Shepherd's Bush 22

Squaremeal Review of Shikumen Shepherd's Bush ?

Housed in the Dorsett Hotel, Shikumen’s flagship restaurant has a spacious, stylish dining room set alongside a hand-carved wooden bar where tea, cocktails and saké are served. At lunchtime, try the handmade dim sum as an alternative to the main menu and set lunches. We enjoyed fried golden seafood rolls with mango sauce, prawn and bean curd-skin cheung fun, and colourful xiao long bao dumplings filled with spicy pork or lobster with black truffle. Signature dishes include authentic Peking duck, carved at table and presented as two servings: first stuffed into pancakes and pillowy bao buns (the crisp, savoury skin dipped in icing sugar), followed by a clear, comforting duck-bone broth. Dishes such as meltingly tender Wagyu beef, stone-grilled tableside and served with earthy black truffle oil, add a touch of luxury, while a beautifully presented dragon fruit platter makes a refreshing dessert. An elegant destination for authentic dim sum.

It did however become tricky as the night went on having to ask a few times before we could order drinks and our meal. We started with the mixed veg and seafood Dim Sum which was lovely as always. Sea food dim sum was properly filled with...

Excellent food but some improvements required

by   gold reviewer (47)

May 2015

My boyfriend and I visited as the dim sum had been recommended to us. Unfortunately, they don’t make it clear on the website that they only serve dim sum at lunch time, so that was very disappointing. We had a drink in the bar first which didn’t make matters much better – it’s a little soulless and the drink I ordered was so disgusting (a peach Bellini – in a champagne glass with a pink neon straw, what?) it had to be sent back. I don’t think I’ve ever sent a drink back before. So far, not good. However,...
