This unique Chinese restaurant in London hopes to transport you back to the peak of Imperial China. The Dim Sum and cocktail bar, hidden away from the bustling streets of Brixton, is modelled on the dark décor of a Chinese opium den, but don't let the inspiration fool you: the venue is completely child friendly. With original house cocktails, speciality teas and great Dim Sum, this is perfect place for lunch or dinner.

For a more authentic, award-winning London Chinese restaurant, there's the Chinese Cricket Club. Named after the Chinese national cricket team who played their first match in 2009 and hosted in a Grade II-listed building, the venue serves Sichuan cuisine that focuses on spicy dishes and Cantonese Dim Sum. The interiors match the quality of the food, with bold greens standing against strong wooden furnishings.
