Lotus Floating Restaurant

The Lotus Floating Restaurant is one of the popular Chinese restaurant in London, east side near Canary Wharf. Nearest station is Crossharbour which is less than 5 minutes walk. It's surrounded by new luxurious and classy looking flats.

We arrived early at 12pm for dimsum. We ordered most of the basics that we would usually order and it came up to about £17-£20 per pax.

The food we've ordered were fresh and hot when it arrived, no complains... Just like the pan fried radish - it's lightly crisp outside and a little soft inside. I'm sure some of the food are frozen unlike what you get in Hong Kong, but I think I'm alright with it....

Overall, I found the taste to be a mixture of Malaysian and Hong Kong style dimsum. It's not bad if you're not too fussy about it - I thought it was nice but it'd be too far to travel all the way as we can get similar quality around Chinatown area.

Typical HK "Cha Leung" / Deep fried you tiao wrapped with rice noodle rolls

Of all dishes, I didn't like the salted fish and pork rice most... The salted fish used was not premium quality so it didn't taste good.

Likes: On par Chinese dimsum, nice environment, convenient for people around the area, reasonably priced
Dislikes: Too far from Central, there are better options in Chinatown
