A. Wong

Pimlico is where I live, it’s a lovely little area, tucked behind Victoria, north of the river, east of Chelsea, west of Westminster. There are little family-run shops, great cafes and gorgeous houses – but it also does an excellent line in restaurants. One of the newest is ‘A. Wong’. Opened in December it sits on the site of a rather dingy old chinese, but in a somewhat phoenix-like transformation it’s now a swanky, modern restaurant with a spotless open kitchen and lovely decor.

On a freezing Thursday night it was a welcome respite from weather, the staff were welcoming and attentive and the restaurant reassuringly busy. The menu is pretty extensive and takes in a range of chinese styles, but using quality british ingredients. £40 gets you an eight course tasting menu which will have to wait for another time, we plumped for their £13 two course set menu (including a glass of very drinkable wine), brilliant value!

The starter was a lovely dim sum platter, the pork dumpling was an absolute star, generously filled and carefully seasoned.

The main was a great beef and noodle dish – rich, savoury and filling.

While the service was a little slow, the quality of the food more than made up for it – i’ll definitely be back for more! It’s a welcome addition to the neighbourhood and I can’t wait to sample the rest of the menu!
