Lu Ban in Liverpool’s Stanhope Street is not your average Chinese restaurant. Offering regional specialities from Tianjin, the concept here is small plates - or xiao panzi - that are made using traditional cooking techniques. For a taste of the best of the region, go for one of the set menus. Dishes like pickled cucumber with chili and shitake, crispy prawns with szechuan seasoning and dumplings with pork and chinese spices will be brought to your table. Both the presentation of the food and the restaurant itself is stunning and the dining experience is elevated even further by watching the master chefs at work in the open kitchen. For a different approach to Chinese food in Riverside, book a table at Lu Ban.
Food sounds delicious?
Get a table before they're gone
This was my second visit. First time we went off the small plates menu, food was excellent, flavours so different. This time we got the set menu. It was nice but nothing special.
I wrote to you yesterday I will wait 24 hours before posting my disastrous experience on media You haven’t even had the decency to respond My corespondents with you has also gone to the restaurant you represent G Lunt
All fine really with tasty food but not in a rush to go back due to the restaurant lacking atmosphere overall. Also the Waiter slightly slow (approx 10 -15 mins) to bring our menus after we were sat at the table. This wasn’t a major issue as we were happy chatting and enjoying a drink but it was a notable length of time to not have a menu. As I say however, it was fine but feel a little flat about a return visit. Especially with all the other exciting restaurants popping up in Liverpool.
