Category: Chinese Food

If you want Chinese food, going to Chinatown is always an option; the restaurants have improved over the years, with the old type (basically set up to serve fried rice and sweet and sour gloop to the tourists who don't know any better) being replaced by newer places specialising in regional cuisines. It's also a good place to find a wide choice of dim sum restaurants.

One thing to note is that the service in Chinese restaurants is often described by non-Chinese people as being rude and unpleasant. It's a cultural thing; British people who aren't used to interacting with Chinese people see rudeness where there is simply a difference in expectations. Good service in a Chinese restaurant is fast and efficient rather than solicitous and informative. Basically, if you expect obsequious service then you will almost certainly be disappointed.
