According to a sign in the window as of May 2015, they accept cash only.
secretlondon ordered online one evening in November 2014. I had Dim Sum mixed (£9) which consisted of 3 ha kow prawn dumplings, 3 siu mai pork dumplings, 1 char siu pork bun, 1 chicken bun and 1 custard bun. I also had ma po tofu rice with minced beef (£5.50).
I'd presumed that the tofu came with rice and it didn't. It was quite soft in a hot sauce with some beef. I don't think there were any rice grains in the sauce so unless the tofu is made of rice somehow I'm a bit confused. It was an interesting dish with a nice sauce but not what I was expecting and too wet to eat without rice. I'm not an dim sum expert but I liked the prawn and pork dumplings and wasn't that keen on the buns.
