Chinese food in the United Kingdom can be a mixed bag somewhat, with everything from the neighbourhood takeaway to the top-end of contemporary Chinese cooking. As befitting a restaurant housed in the opulent surrounds of Harrods, Chai Wu is very much an example of the latter, with a menu that showcases the best that China has to offer on a plate to the discerning public of Knightsbridge from their location on Brompton Road. Book a table now – they can get very busy on occasion, as you might imagine – and experience it for yourself.
Chai Wu is very much at the forefront of contemporary Chinese cuisine in London. They are relatively new to the restaurant scene in Knightsbridge, but their reputation has grown remarkably in the short time that they have been open, with a decadent and opulent menu filled with both favourites that all will recognise, as well a range of regional specialities and lesser-spotted dishes to surprise even the most experienced connoisseurs. Arrive at Harrods on Brompton Road and try it out for yourself.
The Chinese delicacies to be enjoyed at Harrods and Chai Wu are extensive, so let us talk you through a few of them. The signature dishes are Beijing duck, served with the traditional pancakes, cucumber, spring onions and hoi sin, as well as Sichuan lamb and steamed dim sum platters to share with your group. There are more obscure offerings too, in the form of grilled eel with rice, popcorn shrimp and Korean-style lobster, fried in a wok and accompanied by a spicy honey sauce. Reserve your table now and get to Chai Wu inside Harrods for one of the finest Chinese meals in London.
Excellent food and convivial atmosphere. We really enjoyed our evening at the restaurant coupled with Xmas shopping. We tasted the crab and sweet corn soup followed by a sharing platter of Dim Sum and a Harrods roll. A light and tasty pre shopping supper followed by jasmine tea.
Amazing, the food, drinks, staff and restaurant, all incredible. I love this restaurant so much I will come back many more times to come. Thank you for such a amazing experience !
Chai wu staff had excellent customer service, the food was great and well presented and they did excellently accommodating to my party despite our slight lateness.
