Review on New Fook Lam Moon

A Soho Chinatown faithful since 1982 (when it was simply called Fook Lam Moon), this restaurant has all the trappings you might expect from a long-running Gerrard Street address: slightly cramped surroundings, a colourful window display of barbecued meats, swift service and a huge menu focussing on earthy specialities from Canton and Peking.

Seafood is a major suit and the kitchen has its way with steamed 'live' carp, stewed eel with roasted pork, lobster with black bean and chilli and more besides. There are also stir-fries, barbecued specialities, sizzlers and gutsy hotpots (mutton with dry beancurd, chicken with salted fish, for example) and plenty of one-plate rice and noodle dishes.

But New Fook Lam Moon also has an unexpected ace up its sleeve in the shape of esoteric Chinese-Malaysian specialities that are sure to entice those with a taste for adventure. Look for the unctuous deep-fried prawns coated with planta margarine, bak kut teh (a mix of pork ribs, belly liver and tofu in a rich herb broth) and turbot curry hotpot.

    appalling service

    Went to this restaurant last night with some friends. Every time we come to London we always go to this same restaurant as in the past the food and service have been excellent, and we have done this for years. Last night the food was ok but the service was atrocious..!! After our 3 course meal we were presented with the bill without asking for it whilst we were still drinking our wine..!! My friend queried this as she wanted a coffee. The waitress said that we could not have a coffee as there were too many people waiting to sit down and that they wanted us to pay straightaway. The waitress kept coming up to our table seeing if we had put any money down yet making us feel very uneasy. The waitress then asked us to pay now as people were waiting to sit down. When we paid the waitress even queried if were going to give a tip..!! They would normally have got one, but not this time. I noticed they were doing the same to other customers. Needless to say we will not be going back to this restaurant which is a real shame as previously we have really enjoyed ourselves. - staff at New Fook Lam Moon - if you read this please reconsider your customer service , as although you may get more people through the doors doing this, you will lose loyal custom and this is rubbish customer service - the people waiting to get in should be told there will be a wait time, as there is in other restaurants, if customers want to eat there, they will wait 20 minutes with no problems
