Sum is having its day with new restaurants popping up all over town. The newest kid on the block and one that we can also confidently say having tried it last week is pretty darn good is the Dim Sum Diner in West London, located between Queensway and Bayswater stations. Its minimalist design has a very modern feel  – it might not be traditional, but it’s sleek, smooth and very stylish. The vivid red walls stop it looking too clinical, and the old fashioned bird cages restyled as light fittings are a nice touch.

The food is equally as impressive, from light pork and prawn dim sum that melt on the tongue, to hearty Singapore noodles that come in surprisingly large portions. The sweet and sour prawns were huge, like baby lobsters, and we enjoyed the unique take on duck rolls – deep fried like spring rolls but with a hidden strip of cucumber in the centre. The two dishes that we insist you order are the honey pork char sui buns – sticky sweet pork encased in fluffy white pastry and the salt and pepper fried chicken with chilli which has a real kick to it.

The desserts are awesome too if you can manage one after all that – we tried the custard filled buns – very similar to the pork buns only with sweet filling but watch out, they are hotter than the surface of the sun! The service is polite and attentive and prices are more than reasonable (all dim sum are £3.80 and sides £2.50) making this one of London’s all round best for dim sum.
