Review on Lotus Chinese Floating Restaurant
The largest floating Chinese restaurant in the country is moored by Millwall Dock and it boasts spectacular waterfront views.
On Sundays, the place is a magnet for fans of dim sum, who pack into the huge space for a feast of genuine dumplings, rolls and buns. Steamed items could include pork and radish dumplings, squid in curry sauce and spare ribs in black bean sauce; fried snacks range from vegetarian spring rolls to cuttlefish cakes and there are some unusual desserts like peanut-coated sesame dumplings.
Seafood shows up well on the full menu, which includes skate, eel, sea bass and Dover sole in various guises, as well as steamed giant prawns with crushed garlic. Alternatively, look for meat and poultry in the shape of paper-wrapped chicken or five-spice shredded duck.
