Melon cutting

Our chef Mitch has awesome melon cutting skills.

Our mission

We want people to discover the region we were born and raised and the best way to do so is by tasting it! We don't have a lot of dishes on the menu because we want to work with fresh products. Every morning Mitch goes to the Chinese market in London to buy fresh vegetables, fruit and all the other ingredients he needs. We are different from the regular Chinese restaurants because we don't serve the regular dishes like nasi goreng and egg rolls. We cook very traditional dishes that find their origin in the Hunan region, where Mr. Xue was born.

Did you know

Ice cream was said to have originated in China around 2000 BC. According to historians, an emperor loved it so much and kept it a royal secret before Marco Polo came and brought the idea to Italy. Ice cream is actually common in China. There is also another version called “baobing“, which is actually shaved ice with some sweet syrup.
