Thursday night in Chinatown

After work drinks I met Mr KE who had to work late and we trotted off to Chinatown for dinner.

We went to Lee Ho Fook on Gerrard Street which is not one of our usual haunts. Maybe it was late, but the service was really bad and when the bill came it was £40 more than expected. After a quick look through the receipts, we found that they had charged us for the next table's food as well. Hmmmm.

We thought it was a mistake, but I have since read the review on London Eating and it has happened to two other reviewers. They are cheats! I am tempted to go to the police station and make a complaint!

The food was OK. We had crispy duck (disappointing, dry stale pancakes, cucumber and spring onions that had been sitting around all day, average duck); beef in black pepper sauce (good), noodles with prawns (nice) and lobster in spicy sauce (nice but messy).

I've posted a photo of the lobster. 7/10 for taste, 4/10 for presentation and 3/10 for service.
