Chinese | Soho | Payday

The beautiful people flock to this terminally hip and ultra-slick Soho tea-house for its mouth-watering bites of sexed-up dim sum. Crisp-pastried venison puffs with steaming insides are too good to share (or maybe we’re just greedy) and classics like xiumai and hargao are equally well-executed. If you’re going at night ask for a table downstairs, where star-spangled ceilings and blue back-lit walls keep this place’s ultra-cool credo up to muster. During the day avoid the club-like basement and opt for the more civilised upstairs tearoom. There’s an impressively extensive tea menu, and a much shorter, but very fun, cocktail list. The place does a mean oriental twist on afternoon tea, which comes served with irresistibly attractive cakes. And if you’re in the mood for something sweet, don’t leave without a box of the decadent and exotic macaroons.
