JM Oriental is an award-winning Cantonese concept restaurant in Edgware. Founded and helmed by Chef A. Hung, its mission is to deliver authentic Chinese cuisine, with a contemporary twist. And the mission has been accomplished. JM Oriental is the 2024 recipient of not one but three Golden Chopsticks awards: Best Restaurant in England, Best Design, and Best Dim Sum. 

JM Oriental stays true to traditional Chinese dishes, with a focus on Hong Kong dim sum, complimented by vibrant, design-led space that mixes bold orange seating and avant garde lighting with rich natural tones and materials. The menu is split up into different varied courses, so you won't have trouble finding something you like. To start, try something like the Jun Ming classic platter with satay chicken, vegetable spring roll, barbecued ribs, sesame prawn toast and seaweed.

Dim sum is sorted into steamed, fried, wok-grilled, baked and Cheung Fun, spanning a range of fillings such as scallop, prawn and beetroot, as well as beef steak puff and black pepper, and grilled turnip cake with dried shrimp and sausage. We particularly like the sound of the egg custard lava bao, too.

When it comes to main dishes, there's a huge selection to choose from with options such as assorted seafood clay pot, black beans, ginger and shallots, or Taiwanese ‘Three-marinates’ chicken, thigh fillets and sweet basil, alongside UK grass-fed ribeye cube with asparagus and XO sauce.

Be sure to complement your dining experience with one of JM Oriental's signature cocktails, many of which offer a different take on a classic. The 'reformed' pornstar martini, for example, mixes vodka, passion fruit puree, lime; prosecco and lots of love. With a bar area for drinks, larger booth seating for groups and a main dining space, it's a great place for a quick cocktail or special evening out.

Award winning food at JM Oriental

Visited recently with 2 friends for a long overdue lunch.

On entering you notice the beautiful decor which is immediatley inviting and the perfect backdrop to enjoy what Giles Coren suggests could be the best dum sum in England! For anyone living locally, it's a godsend to have such an impressive kitchen in their neighbourhood!

Dim sum included Truffle siu mai, Scallop prawn and beetroot, plus wasabi har-gar. Delicious!

The steamed Chilean sea bass was outstanding and the beautifully presented truffle barbecued roast duck was an instant hit!

Don't forget to order the Steamed Egg Custard Lava Bao - the perfect end to the perfect meal, it's no surprise they are the recipients of a coveted Golden Chopsticks Award.
