Super Star Restaurant 鴻星海鮮酒家 - London China Town

After a long afternoon at the museums, Miss Pinky, Master H and I decided to go to China Town to eat. We thought anywhere would do, so we ended up in a restaurant I have never been in before - Super Star 鴻星海鮮酒家 (literally means 'Superstar Seafood Restaurant'). Why did we go in there? There was dim sum! And apparently they serve it until late - not like in some traditional dim sum restaurants where they only serve it from early morning 'til 5pm.

I finally remembered how to focus my viewfinder ^^

I think I was the indecisive person amongst the three of us, but we ended up getting the following dishes...

Starters - a selection of 5 pieces of dim sum for 2 people each, unfortunately although they all tasted good, the steamed dim sum were cold and the fried ones were hot.

Miss Pinky had the scallops. There seems to be a lot of vermicelli and spring onions on top. I couldn't see the scallop!
Mains - The little brother had chicken chow mein. This wasn't hot, only lukewarm, but he did enjoy it.

This was my main - again it was lukewarm, and the prawn dumplings weren't flavoured enough...

Miss Pinky's main - hers was also lukewarm, but she did enjoy the duck!

At the end we got our free oranges - nice and sweet, no seeds!

Total cost came up to over £53.40... Not sure if it was entirely worth it...

My geeky rating:
 3.5 - although efficient service, they lose marks for the food being lukewarm

Good Points:

Loads of space between tables and don't have to share
Dining upstairs is available
Efficient service and free oranges for dessert
Waiters spoke in Cantonese, English and Mandarin

Bad Points:
Food not hot enough with dim sum and main dishes
