About Min Jiang at the Royal Garden Hotel

SquareMeal Review

Gold Award
It’s hard to talk about Min Jiang without mentioning the view: 10 floors up on the fringes of Hyde Park, it’s a mesmerising prospect. Now fast approaching its 10th birthday, this venue has become one of London’s slickest operators, a top-end Chinese decked out with mirrored panels, oriental screens and classical pottery, dealing in scrubbed-up but authentic Szechuan and Cantonese cuisine. The star of the show – and one of our guiltiest treats in the capital – is the Beijing duck, presented in three servings. No doctor is going to recommend the crispy skin dipped in fine sugar but, boy, is it good – likewise the traditional pancake wraps, lettuce parcels and alternatives such as salted vegetable soup with duck and tofu. Elsewhere, baskets of steamed dim sum are a beauty to behold, while rib-eye in a sticky black pepper sauce is sweet and soothing. To drink, put your trust in the sommelier’s pick from an Old World-leaning wine list.

Amazing experience at Min Jiang! Personally not a huge Chinese cuisine fan, however, every dish was delicious! The view from the restaurant also added to the experience. Wonderful service and hospitality! Great restaurant to take clients, enjoy a business related lunch/ or for a special occasion.

I ate at the restaurant for the first time last night. i have eaten at most of the top end Chinese restaurants in London and this is as good as the best. We started off with ribs and dim sum and they were perfect. We then had the duck and it was the best i had eaten in London, and it matched the best I have had in Hong Kong and Singapore. The service waas impeccable. However the strangest experience revolved around a final glass each of a good house wine that we had defined and ordered at the end of the meal as the bottle we had was drunk. A glass each of Malbec was duly served up and I told the waiter I was disappointed that this had been elected as their grape choice . The sommelier duly appeared and told me that I obviously didn't have a great taste in wine as i had ordered a bottle of montepulciano ; the inference being that anyone who chooses this wine doesn't know wines.I was amazed! I explained that as this wine was £78 and a bottle of '86 Mouton Rothschilds was £2,800 , it seemed that the montepulciano was better value! (He didn't get the irony or the humour) He got really upset when I said that i had never ben offered a glass of Malbec as first choice second wine before, ..anyway this went on and eventually we got a glass of pinot noir each that was good. Other than this weird experience I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone who is willing to pay top dollar for the best chinese food in London

It really is the view which makes this place: the greenery of Hyde Park in the foreground and all London's spires and shards in the background. The decor is modern and plush with a nice balance of chinoiserie. Dim sum and chilli crab made a contrasting and very tasty pair of starters (with the crab minus the chilli as the waitress suggested). The “signature dish” of Beijing Duck was nicely cooked with micro-thin pancakes and an addition of garlic sauce as well as the usual plum sauce. But try as it did it could not escape a feeling of being a fancier version of the standard dish. Really I thought the Min Jiang ought to be aiming for something in a different league. We thought we would experiment with the dessert: Pear and Snow Ear. In fact it seemed to be 10% pear and 90% snow ear (a white fungus and for the untutored a bit like eating softened plastic sheeting). It is apparently very authentic. Unfortunately for our Western palates our experiment was not a success. You live and learn. We'll come back though for the views and to try something different.
