Top 4 Chinese Restaurants In Bermondsey You Must Visit


Crystal China

Those of you that love Chinese food have already probably heard of or visited Crystal China – one of the best restaurants in Bermondsey that offer excellent service and delicious traditional food prepared from the best ingredients.

They have a huge selection of soups which we love – for example, the Pickle and Shredded Pork Soup, the Hot and Sour Soup, and the Ribs and Sweetcorn Soup are our favourites. Their starters are also incredible and we recommend the Salt and Pepper Mini Spare Ribs, the Fried Chicken Balls, and the Sichuan Style Pig Ears.

When it comes to their main dishes, we love the Chicken with Cashew Nuts and Yellow Bean Sauce, the Beef Sliced with Long Green Chilli, the Shredded Pork with Pickles, and the Duck Chow Mein.

Next on our list is a very sophisticated and high-end Chinese restaurant with an incredible interior, huge windows with a lovely view, and excellent food. Keep in mind that this place is pricey and always packed so you would definitely want to put on your fancy clothes and book a table in advance before you go.

Start off with Crispy Prawn Rolls (with prawns, mixed seafood, vegetables), Scallop and prawn wontons with hot and spicy sauce or Iberico pork dumplings (Sichuan garlic sauce). They also offer incredible Dim Sum and we usually order their Dim Sum platter which includes very unique dumplings – 2 Cod and seaweed dumplings, 2 Rosé Champagne shrimp dumplings, 2 Prawn Dumplings, and 2 Mushroom and spinach dumplings.

When it comes to their main dishes, we are certain you will love the Sichuan-style deep-fried lobster (with chilli, black beans, garlic), the Crispy soft-shell crab, the Wok-fried cod fillet (with sweet chilli and oyster sauce) as well as their Pork Ribs with sweet vinegar sauce.
