    bestest best? Hakkasan (Tottenham Court Rd and a few at other places) or Royal China (Canary Wharf, Bayswater and a few others)

    Yauatcha in Soho is also delicious. Not on the same league with Hakassan or Yauatcha is Ping-Pong near Liberty. It's less pricey and quite tasty.

    I'd have to agree with Yauatcha and Hakkasan. I've heard good stuff about Dragon Castle (near Elephant), but that's a different category of restaurant.

    I love Hakkasan! So pricey though!

    I heard they're opening up one in NYC soon. I can't wait.

    The only one I've tried is Ping-Pong, but I thought it was fantastic. I'll have to give the other suggestions a try.

    Loved Yauatcha. Also really liked Leong's Legend in Chinatown.

    Had dim sum at Young Cheng, 22 Lisle Street, about two weeks ago. A Chinese woman in our party picked the place. Excellent.

    No carts, though, raysian: no room to maneuver them. You order from a menu.
     
  11. I would recommend Pearl Liang near Paddington Station.

    Good Dim Sum and more reasonably priced then Hakkasan and Yauatcha.
    They also do good dishes (Lobster Noodles with spring onion and Ginger mmmm.....)

    Generally I have found Chinese food in Soho is very hit and miss.
    Queensway near Bayswater Tube station is a street with many more (and in my opinion) better Chinese.
