Dim T: bad chain Dim Sum

Went here on Friday night with some friends from the gym and it has to be said we weren't that impressed. The food and drink we had was distinctly underwelming. The starters and dumplings were a bit like bad wedding canapes, our crispy duck was dry and tasteless, the mains were OK but not nearly as good as from one of the noodle shops in Soho. If fell very much into the Ping Pong category of mass produced oriental food. The wines were particularly bad, we tried both the Sauvignon Blanc and Gewurtz which seemed inspired by Blue Nun, the Shiraz we also had was pretty poor. Service was fine though we were stuck at a table upstairs so it lacked any atmosphere. Would not be in a hurry to go back there.
