Hong Kong Diner Jan 25, 2011
It can be really difficult to chose a restaurant in Chinatown, because there are so many. Quite often, you are left with the old “that one looks OK” technique of restaurant selection, which is always a gamble. In this case it paid off.
Hong Kong Diner is round the corner from the main gates of Chinatown, and is brightly decorated. The food is surprisingly light, and the batter on the lemon chicken was incredibly nice and not at all sticky. The flavours were delicate and the service was fine. It costs slightly more than I am used to paying for Chinese food, but it is well worth it. I think there are cheaper options,
especially if you’re there for starters – Mum and I paid about £45 for two people, including drinks, tip and lots of food.
It’s also worth noting that they do all sorts of cocktails and bubble teas – I ignored them and had a Tsing Tao but it’s good to know that you can have a choice. And the Chinese tea we had after the meal seemed to be on a free refill basis.
Although we were there early evening, I think that the diner stays open very late, even on week nights, making it pretty useful if you’re going to the theatre. I had a quick look on the internet and it seems to be a popular place
with Chinese people in London, which is probably a good sign.
