looking for good Chinese Or Taiwanese restaurant

edited February 2011 in Not Sports Related
I am looking for a good Chinese or Taiwanese restaurant in City / West End to "celebrate" closing a deal. Want to take the clients there.

Any suggestions?

  • Imperial City on Cornhill is good.
  • Benihana in Piccadilly is decent - good entertainment from the chefs at the 'Hibachi grill' on your table.
  • Benihana is Japanese - possible cultural faux pas.
  • If your clients are Chinese, they may be sick of always being wined and dined at a Chinese restaurant. I once tried a vile pizza in Beijing, was better to try the local places; maybe a Chinese delegation would fancy something more local to London...not suggesting what though.
  • Kebeb seth?
  • kebab...nah, unless it's a veggie one

    Always found the food at Won Kei in Chinatown exceptional, and very cheap, especially if you want to try something adventurous. However service is abrupt and the place doesn't appear to have been decorated since the 70s, all part of it's charm, but I wouldn't pick it as a location for a long celebratory dinner.
  • Dunno about taiwanese squire but shanghai blues in high holborn is very good and very upmarket. Imperial city is good as mentioned on another post though full of city types.

    Kai in Mayfair you will need to book but it is the nuts. You can probably find them on google.

    Or depending on how much you want to entertain them, try Tamarai in Drury Lane Covent Garden. Restaurant, bar and club.

    Malaysian - very good but maybe too far for you:

  • Beni Hana - Japanese food. Great fun and brilliant food. The chef cooks infront of you on a hot plate.

    Recommend.

    Food is the best in Chinatown but your right about the lack of a smile!! Hoho! Miserable!
  • Won Kei? No. Awful place and your clients won't be your clients for very long.

    Take them for fish and chips or something similar http://www.fishkitchen.com/fish/ at Borough Market.
  • thanks for all the tips. I have asked my clients if they have any choice of location. Lets see - Brentford may be a good call.
  • Also decent and a bit more business like is the restaurant on the 23rd floor of the Hilton in Paddington - oriental (Japanese/Chinese fusion they call it i think)...can't remember the name but food was good and views great.
  • Eat and Drink near Liverpool St is usually good ( if it's still there)

    won keis is chinatown's equivalent of macdonalds (insomuch as it's fast food). great for a quick cheap meal (cash only) and laughing at the rudeness of the staff.

    gerard's corner is my favourite restaurant in chinatown, and it's on the corner of gerard street if you're wondering....
  • Dont know what your budget is but Hakkasan at Totters Court Road should do the trick.
  • Sod it. 2 meals for £12 at zizzi's. Recession n that.
