Shikumen Restaurants is a new affordable Chinese fine-dining option for London with a large flagship restaurant located in The Dorsett Hotel on Shepherd’s Bush Green and a second smaller location in Ealing’s Hotel Xanadu.
Shikumen Restaurants hosted a Launch Party held on Chinese New Year (19th February) welcoming local business owners, loyal customers, journalists, family and friends to their Shepherd’s Bush restaurant.
Fourteen Ten assisted by inviting the media and local business owners to the party which we are pleased to say was a full house. The premise of Chinese New Year is to spend time with your family and friends, feast on symbolic food and take part in traditional activities to bring luck, prosperity and happiness. Our party followed this theme along with some amazing food sculptures, live pancake making, prizes to encourage social media sharing as well as beautiful personalised tea gifts and red envelopes to take home.
Since opening Shikumen has received encouraging reviews online such as “(I) have been here three times now, what an amazing restaurant!…The duck is to die for, honestly the best Chinese in London”, “This is proper food, beautifully cooked, elegantly presented” and “If there is a better Chinese restaurant in this part of west London, I have yet to find it”.
Shikumen is so called after the traditional Shanghai stone house architecture of the 1940s that blended east and west. The restaurant continues this tradition to blend the two cultures of east and west by presenting traditional dishes in an refined western way. Ingredients are carefully sourced to bring diners produce of the highest quality served for exceptional value for money and you will see this reflected in the pricing of signature dishes such as Peking Duck carved at the table and served in two servings (whole £48.50 half £26.50), Shanghai Xiao Long Bao (£3.50), Fried Dough Stick Cheung Fun (£4.20) and Turnip Puff Pastry (£3.80).
