Highly Commended Best Chinese 9 Comments
- Picture 1 of 2
Serving such an extensive range of masterful dishes, it’s perhaps surprising that the Radisson Blu’s smart Chinese restaurant is so quiet for much of the week. The menu covers pretty much everything, with a particular focus on seafood and fish. If its vast size proves too much, stick to the highly recommended dishes, highlighted throughout, all of which do indeed prove rather special. Don’t miss the crispy cucumber tossed with garlic or the baby radishes in vinegar – these may sound a tad plain, but they make for a beautifully zingy and fresh start to the meal. Other highlights include any of the steamed dumplings (all homemade and packed full of flavour), the steamed black cod with soy and spring onion and the spicy Szechuan-style eggplant cooked in a clay pot. Portions are fairly modest, yet the food is invariably top drawer, complemented by attentive service and elegant surrounds – although some may find the staff’s insistence on serving each dish for you a little overbearing. If it weren’t for the rather high prices, we’d be dining at The China Club much more often.
