Service was quick and efficient. Food was excellent and decently priced. Level of noise is reasonable allowing a decent conversation between guests. Good spot which is easily missed as its slightly off the main thoroughfare.
We love China Lane. Sit outside and watch the wedding photography followed by the young people queuing for The Ivy. Ask your waiter to order for you and order the Albariño. The squid ink dumplings and the Sichuan chicken wings were fantastic.
Small, intimate. Friendly staff limited but good menu. Hidden away behind a building in a lane but with French doors that let in the light and the air.
