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.

    delicious food

    My wife and i enjoyed a lovely evening in the capitol restaurant. The staff were friendly and chatted with us after the meal, the wine that was recommended was good. We had a set menu and all the dishes were tasty and hot. I've never been before but would definitely go again.
