Park Chinois review

Share it:

Park Chinois is glitzy, elegant and glamorous, with unashamedly blazing-oriental interiors, with a side of velvet and tassels. Sexy low lighting (it may results as too dark during your dinner) and plush seats create an intimate, sexy and warm atmosphere. Perfect for a date as it does for celebrations with friends. Across two floors, you can enjoy dinner in Salon de Chine then head downstairs to the Wave Bar for a cocktail and the evening’s live entertainment in Club Chinois.

Brace yourself for some big-money special-occasion dining at this opulent 1930s Shanghai atmosphere. Swathes of red velvet, sultry lighting, ostentatious trappings and nightly live music provide the backdrop for stunning Chinese cooking.

Because the food at Park Chinois matters! That’s my review 😉

The indulgent menu is a feast for the senses. Don’t miss the signature Duck de Chine, succulent and flavourful, with paper-thin pancakes and all the trimmings as it takes a mere 72 hours to prepare, hence take note and pre-order. The restaurant’s Chinese heritage comes to life in every dish; start with the small plates: the dim sum and dumplings (particularly the black truffle) are delicious, as are the melt-in-the-mouth slow-roasted Ibérico pork ribs. Other must-haves include the grilled black cod with yuzu and pomelo, and a creative twist on the classic carbonara—udon noodles with sea urchin and pancetta. The food may not be accessible in the pocket, but the portions are generous enough to guarantee a good bang for your buck.

Prepare to step out of modern-day Mayfair and into Golden Age Shanghai as the concierge at Park Chinois welcomes you with a tip of a hat. This glamorous spot is dedicated to celebrating the romance and etiquette of yesteryear, alongside the thrills and luxury of the present. Park Chinois, which comprises the elegant Salon de Chine and indulgent Club Chinois, is a unique dining experience popular with the well-to-do, so have your credit card at the ready.

Celebrating at Park Chinois

There’s a menu for every occasion at Park Chinois, from light lunches to long, luxurious dinners. For an all-round taste of what’s on offer, try the two- or three-course set lunch menu. The restaurant’s more expensive dishes won’t feature, but you’ll still get to try the likes of bang bang chicken salad,  Cantonese roast duck with Champagne and orange sauce, and an 85% chocolate fondant.

For those looking to make a serious dent in their bank accounts though, the sky is the limit. You’ll find rare caviars, prime cuts of meat including Japanese Hida Wagyu rib-eye, premium fish and shellfish, and other dishes containing the likes of foie gras, black truffle and venison.

Exquisitely crafted desserts are a must for the sweet-toothed as they include creations such as the Granny Smith apple cheesecake served with vanilla and apple cream, apple gel and crumble, and a decadent dark chocolate fondant made with sweetcorn and Rémy Martin Cognac Sauce and decorated with gold leaf. Drinks are similarly glamorous whether you opt for a cocktail, a glass of Champagne or a pot of rare Japanese tea.

Entertainment at Park Chinois

World-class live entertainment is curated daily in the Salon de Chine to accompany dinner service, while Park Chinois’ Divas command the stage, seven days a week, setting Park Chinois apart from anywhere else in the world. Alternatively, guests can enjoy a hedonistic dining experience in Club Chinois combining indulgent food and devilishly curious entertainment that encourages guests to participate as both voyeur and participant. The progressive dining entertainment curated by the in-house theatre director sets Park Chinois apart from others in the heart of London’s beloved Mayfair.

Park Chinois is a celebration of the romance and etiquette of times gone by, combined with all the thrills and excitement of the present day.

Probably the best Chinese in London

Park Chinois review:

We went with friends and colleagues, for dinner on a mid-week night having been well recommended to this very upmarket restaurant.
There is no doubt that the decor and ambience are superb, and there is a great atmosphere. It’s very likely to be in a movie set, deeply immerse in “other times” environment.
It is jam-packed and is very chic. Reservation recommended.

It was enjoyable and unique and definitely furthers your dining experience. I’ll admit that at the start I thought I could do without it, but it quickly grew on me, especially because the entertainers were evidently highly skilled and looked to be enjoying themselves as well. There were several performances, and all were perfectly timed – which is very important because Park Chinois is first and foremost a restaurant.

The Cabaret during the evening has well appreciated with great dancing and singing.
The staff is professional and very well trained.
The food which is Asian is terrific. It is well served and presented and is pretty tasty.
Indeed it is an expensive restaurant and not for the faint-hearted or those on a budget, but we had a delightful evening and unforgettable experience, and I would return at the drop of a hat.

Pros

  • Excellent Food and Service
  • The entertainment
  • Welcoming

 

Cons

  • Expensive
  • A bit too dark for a dinner
