Mrs. Chew’s

Say hello the new kid on the block, Mrs. Chew’s. This quick service restaurant opened late last year in Grand Central's food court. We've not had a chance to check them out since they opened just before lockdown 3 but the dishes looked amazing. But you can head to Deliveroo and UberEats to get your favourite home made noodles and wok fried specialities from there . Plus, spend £15 and get a free portion of Siew Mai!

Chung Ying Cantonese Restaurant

Going for almost 40 years, it's the beating heart of China Town. Chung Ying is the king of Chinese restaurants and offers a large variety of authentic Chinese dishes and boasts an extensive Dim Sum menu. They are also one of the very few Chinese restaurants to offer full vegan and gluten free menus. So if you want a classic Chinese cuisine for your New Year celebration check out their menu here :
