Review of Kaifeng, Hendon

The history books tell us that there really were Jews in the once-mighty central Chinese city of Kaifeng, way back in the ninth century when the legendary Silk Road from the Middle East was in full swing. The tradition lives on in this fascinating North London restaurant, which is suitably decorated with vivid eighteenth-century drawings of life in the old city.

Over the years, Kaifeng restaurant has become legendary among London's Anglo-Jewry and receives sky-high ratings from the critics in every department. All meat is 'Glatt Kosher' (although there's no pork on the menu, of course): instead, look for deep-fried lamb chops with peppercorn salt, steamed sole with ginger and spring onion, lo hon duck and spiced beancurd 'family style'. There's salt beef chop suey too, as well as chicken and glass noodle soup for a touch of homespun nostalgia.

Sunday lunch is a buffet and children eat for half price. Kaifeng is also a favourite for all manner of traditional 'simchas' or celebrations of every description.
