We are always looking for authentic, well cooked Chinese food in London, On, for both dim sum & dinner - this restaurant certainly fits the bill & more. They also have some Thai & Vietnamese items (which I have not yet tried).
They serve a wide variety of dim sum Sat & Sun - quality of each pastry, steamed dumpling, fried dumplings - excellent taste & selection. They feature a lobster noodle dish (in season) that's a real treat at lunch time!
They have Peking duck as a standing item on the menu - I still book ahead (1 day) to avoid last minute sell-out. The dish is outstanding. The first course is the thin pancakes, with crispy duck skin - perfect, crispy & not greasy. The second course is diced duck piece with vegetables, with crisp fresh lettuce leaves in a crystal fold.
Sea food lovers will be delighted. They have live lobsters, crab, & seasonal fish. The lobster can be steamed with ginger & green onions, stir fried with ginger & green onion, or my favourite - stir fried with black bean sauce. You can vary the size of your order - if a large party - order 4-5. If you're by yourself - 1 whole lobster - what luxury ! The whole fish is fresh - I've tried the whole steamed pickeral - wonderful !
Our meat favourite is the beef tenderloin with hoisin on the sizzling platter - juicy & tasty. We've tried the Captain Tao chicken - slightly spicey & tart - very good.
The service is polite & attentive. The restaurant is was completely re-modelled from a fast food pizza place. Tables, dishes, cutlery are clean. The food presentation is excellent.
If you're going for dim sum, 11-11:30 am is good arrival time, as it fills up completely by noon. If you're going to be later than 11:30am, reservations are a good idea.
They also have seasonal specials with availability of items. Last week, they were featuring a 7 pound lobster (Yes - it was huge & live!!), served in 3 courses - WOW ! We had already pre-ordered the Peking duck, but will be something to look forward to for our next visit !!
I also booked a 50th birthday celebration - dinner for 14 guests. We pre-ordered the menu with the Manager 3 days prior to the event - 12 courses. Everyone was delighted & we had ample food to take home for the next day !

I will most def be going back.the husbend and wife team are very clean and very detailed in the food service. i also noticed the courtous staff very friendly and apporchable. i see nothing but good things to come. keep up the good work
The Green Tea Asian Cuisine (with Chinese name being “荣华”something) is a newly opened dim sum restaurant in London, Ontario. My family went there several times because it was new, but our experience got worse every time we went there - the food is not as authentic as some old dim sum restaurants in London, and the service is slow. And today the restaurant topped that with unbelievable rudeness, so we are not going there any more.
My family went there around noon today. The receptionist did not take our names down and said it would take just several minutes to seat us. We waited for about 15 minutes to see that they seated at least two parties who arrived after we. I talked to the receptionist and a male manager cut in, interrupting my words, to say that they did not have to take the names down. I walked away to continue waiting. Then the manager approached me and said: "You should not be upset about us. That's how I run my business!" I was really astonished by his attitude, "Why do you think you are entitled to tell me that I should or should not be upset? As a customer I expect to be treated with respect." Then the guy asked me to leave and said "or I'll call the police!" Absolutely unbelievable. Throughout the time I did not raise my voice while this guy kept interrupting me with loud broken English. Walking out of that place, my family could not help laughing, wondering what on the earth this guy came from. The restaurant was opened not long ago, and I doubt it can last very long.
I have never been treated so poorly and I will never return here. They made a mistake with my order and it was fairly burnt pizza so I could not tell at the time, but after one bite I realized that there was an ingredient that I was allergic to on the pizza. I politely reminded them which kind I had asked for, and she said since I had already eaten it she can not exchange it. It was one bite, out of and old looking piece of burnt pizza. Wow! I was shocked. The entire family ( I assume) just starred at me and made me feel so uncomfortable. I had already paid so I had no option but to leave with nothing but less money. If I had not taken a bit I could almost swear that they would have served it to someone else even though they had already put it in my hands. Why else would they care? I was shocked that they would choose to loose a customer for good for the benefit of about 1.00 profit! The place was also very dirty and the workers looked unclean and snooty. - keep in mind , i have never in my life made a complaint, and it is so unlike me.
The pizza showed up on time, and the delivery guy was nice.... Everything was bad after that. The pizzas were burned to the point that even the cheese was burned, and when I called to complain, the manager or cook, whoever takes complaints told me that it was too bad, there was nothing he could do, the pizzas just turn out however they turn out. That was it. I wouldn't recommend this restaurant to anyone, simply because if somethings wrong with your food they tell you "too bad."
My recent experience with Mr pizza was excellent, i order their walk in special at least once a week and it is excellent, very cheap, amazing pizza, perfect amount of toppings this store is my family's favorite and we hope to keep it that way. I would recommend getting your pizzas and wings from Mr pizza. if you haven't tried it before you really should give it a try.
I have order from there before, the pizza isn't the greatest but the latest experience I have had was horrible. We gave them our address where we have ordered previously and it took an hour and a half, they went to the wrong address and expected us to pay full price for a cold pizza. I can not believe a manager would tell a customer that. I will never order from there again.
Excellent take-out food. Curry goat, oxtail, barbeque chicken, fried chicken. Home cooking. Cooked fresh
daily. Take-out or delivery available. The best West Indian food in London ON. Located near Whiteoaks Mall. Close to the 401. Service is fast and friendly. Open Monday through Saturday. Will accommodate to the level of spicy you like - spicy, medium, very spicy.
