Min Jiang

Chinese | West London

Fine Chinese dining with a fabulous view over Kensington Palace Gardens. You can't knock the attention to detail - Beijing Duck ovens and woks able to withstand very high temperatures were made in Singapore and brought over to ensure authenticity, which seems to have worked.

"Min Jiang’s prices are a bit higher than the norm but then so are their standards. And to make sure you appreciate each dish there’s plenty of plate swapping." READ REVIEW

"...your duck is nappy-wrapped in divinely light, steamy, fragrant pancakes as you watch. It is so good – rich but light, sweet but not cloying, juicy but not fatty. The pancakes themselves are diaphanously light. I make my own at home, and I am in awe." READ REVIEW

"Shall I go again? Not with a hungry rugger-playing godson, but Min Jiang is perhaps the perfect treat to charm a slightly deaf maiden aunt on whose wealth a canny nephew has his eye." READ REVIEW
