About River View Restaurant

Right where old East London meets the modern Docklands, you can find the time-honoured traditions of the Chinese culinary arts colliding with contemporary cuisine. The culprit is River View Restaurant, a Chinese restaurant with a history that goes back over 25 years and an enviable location on the wharf down New Crane Place (along Wapping Wall), complete with al fresco seating and a private party room overlooking the Thames that can accommodate up to 60 guests. This stylish eatery specialises in seafood, with the dried soft shell crab in chilli salt being a signature dish, but you can find other Chinese classics such as crispy aromatic duck on offer, and a swathe of innovative dishes, too, like River View’s delicious asparagus in chillies.

More about River View Restaurant, London

A great way to dive headlong into River View Restaurant’s offering is to order up one of their set meals. The most lavish of these feasts, the River View Chef’s Choice menu, includes prawn appetisers with satay and sesame, deep fried squid and crispy seaweed, followed by the unmissable aromatic Peking duck, luxuriant fresh lobster with ginger and spring onion, steamed seabass, sizzling chilli and black bean beef, stir-fried mange tout with asparagus, and seafood and meat fried rice wrapped in lotus leaves. These banquets are popular among regulars to this restaurant in London’s Wapping, so be sure to mention that you’d like to indulge this way when you book a table at River View’s New Crane Place restaurant.

River View’s a la carte menu is bristling with fantastic options, too. Eel and steamed scallops, butterfly prawns, Peking-style monkfish, soft shell crab and squid are just some of the East Asian-style seafoods that make their way to table at this Wapping Chinese restaurant, particularly appropriate given River View’s wharf-side setting down New Crane Place, overlooking East London’s historic Docklands. Chinese hot pot dishes are on offer, too, and the list goes on, ranging through authentic interpretations of classic Chinese pork, beef, and poultry, a judicious selection of tofu and vegetarian options, rice and noodles.

Expensive, but lovely food. Really enjoyed the evening, would highly recommend this place. We ordered 4 rice, which came in 1 bowl, and that was about £18, which is lumpy for rice! But all in all enjoyed it a lot.
