My old time favourite. Been there couple of times, standards are high and consistent. Lobster noodles and red snapper are delicious! Also all my friends love the hot and sour soup too. Will definitely go back often!
Mandarin Kitchen is one of the Singapore tourist’s Holy Trinity Chinese restaurants to visit in London (Royal China dimsum and Four Season duck being the others). The famed lobster noodle was seriously mind-blowing. Ask for extra noodle with the same lobster gravy (you can’t order the plain noodle on its own) and share the joy among 3-4 people. The lobster I had was sweet, juicy, and everything right about premium seafood. We also ordered the Peking duck, which was so-so. I would’ve ordered two, three portions of the lobster noodle had I known how good it was ^^
Went there for the lobster noodles and was not disappointed. These are definitely the best ones I’ve had in London. Although the noodles are thinner than normal they were made really well, full of flavour and had no clumping.
However, the other dishes we got - scallops, salted egg squid, dry fried chicken, steamed sea bass, jellyfish and vegetables were very (if not below) average. Stick to the lobster noodles when you go and you’ll love it.
Came around 6.30pm on a Monday and had no problems getting a table. However it got pretty busy at around 7.30pm and by 8pm, there was a queue of people waiting for a table so take note if you are planning to eat here around that time. I ordered their specialty which is the lobster noodles and it was a huge portion. I think it could easily feed 2 people quite comfortably. It’s not cheap: I paid about £35++ for it. The menu states “seasonal price”. What was very affordable though was the tea. It’s only 90p per person and you can drink as much as you like.
Great lunch with famiy -- all the way from India, USA and Australia. My cousins say that this place does the best lobster noodles in the world -- it was very good, but as I've never had it anywhere else I cannot judge! Service was good and food was superb, so no complaints. Right opposite Queensway tube station so very easy to get to. If you're in London and fancy a stroll through Hyde Park, do pop in and give it a try.
