Attached to the Wing Yip superstore in Cricklewood, this giant Chinese restaurant requires some dedication to get to, but still fills up every weekend with loud groups of shoppers taking a break from grocery duty. What the place lacks in glamour, it makes up for in authenticity. Service is as brusque as you’d expect from any Chinese restaurant worth its salt, but gets perfectly steamed morsels of dim sum delivered to the table with scary efficiency. The menu is as big as the place, but stick to the dim sum and barbecued meats to get the best from your experience. The crowds can be overwhelming, but turnover is fast and you can always get in your shopping while you wait.
