    The Independent Says…

    It's a fun place, sort of Shanghai drinking den meets London gastropub, with its scrubbed and wobbly wooden share tables, bare boards, black walls, ceiling fans, little hide-away alcoves and glowing red lanterns lining a long bar... The food is fun, cheap, sincere and a lot better than you would expect from a groovy, smoky (very smoky) Shoreditch bar. It really wouldn't take much to institute the barest of systems that would enable you to receive dishes in the right order for eating. But most of all I like it because it proves my point: that dim sum is a brilliant way to eat at night.
