I know pretty much all Chinese restaurants are child-friendly, but looking for somewhere that'd be particularly good - probably for dim sum tomorrow

Chinese restaurants in South London would be good too

My fav restaurant for dim sum at the moment is Golden Palace, but that's in Harrow.
Most restaurants in Chinatown are good, like Joy Kin Lau, Yung's, ..
Also the Royal China lot in Baker St, Westferry Circus, Queensway .. and there seems to be one in Chelverton Rd Putney.
I've been to Confucius in Wimbledon .. it's on the corner of The Broadway and Merton Rd, but think my friend said they stopped the 'dim sum' .. not sure

Thanks breadgirl. Would you be inclined to take toddlers to any of those specifically?

I'm not sure about baby changing if that's what you mean, but babies, toddlers and kids are always welcome at chinese restaurants

No, not looking for baby changing really, just wondered if there was anywhere that was particularly good for kids

I know you asked for South and Central, but I thought I'd mention Yi Ban, particularly for airplane-obsessed toddlers. It's near City Airport in East London, they love kids, but also there are big windows and you often get to see planes take off and land.

The dim sum is excellent, the prices are good, and the clientele are mostly chinese.

Sounds great NQC - bit of a trek for us tho

NotQuiteCockney Sat 24-Feb-07 18:48:14

Yeah, I know. It's just really good, I'm forever recommending it to people.

There's probs a fish tank, but can't think of anything particularly good otherwise.
Don't think i meant Yung's, dh says it's the next one Jade Garden on Wardour Street .. quite old fashioned but nice.
Have been to Yi Ban too .. kids like to see the planes too. I'm sure i saw a new Yi Ban where Gambado is in Chelsea.

You're right about yi ban in chelsea BG - just checked website - but not open Sundays, oddly

We went to the Royal China on Queensway in the end breadgirl (had been to the Baker St one before) - great success all round

Ahh that's nice to hear
I think since i asked dh yesterday, he decided we should go Chinatown for 'dim sum' too. We ended up going to Jade Garden. It was busy. Food was good enough.
All the hundreds of red lanterns were still up from the chinese new year celebrations last weekend. We bought lots of cakes from a chinese cake shop after.

Golden dragon in Chinatown is lovely, really good food.

Went there recently and saw someone change a baby's nappy in the pram next to the table ! shock

No one said anything to them, so definitely child friendly!
