Review on Capitol
Decorated to look like a Chinese art gallery, the Capitol occupies a Grade II-listed building overlooking Hamilton Square Gardens. Inside there is a riot of intricate hand-painted décor and every conceivable style of Chinese artwork on the walls.
The kitchen delivers well-regarded Cantonese and Pekinese cooking using carefully sourced ingredients. Appetisers and dim sum range from grilled Peking dumplings to hot pickled cabbage and the line-up of 'speciality dishes' includes everything from fillet of beef in black pepper sauce to deep-fried lychees and potato in sweet-and-sour sauce.
Lobsters are cooked every which way, squid is served in wine sauce and pork comes with garlic and chilli. Finish with toffee apples or banana fritters.
