London Hong Kong is a Chinese restaurant which bills itself as selling "authentic Cantonese and Peking Cuisine". It is based at 388 Bath Road, West Drayton, Middlesex UB7 0DH. It is very close to the airport and I've been told that it is frequented by airline staff. I cannot confirm the validity of what I've been told but I can recount to you my first and last experience of dining at this restaurant.The website address of the restaurant is http://www.london-hk.co.uk and their phone number is 020 8754 7666.
LOOKS/ATMOSPHEREIf I were going to rate this eating venue on looks alone I would give it a strong 8 out of 10. From outside it looks delightful. The brightly lit multi-coloured welcome sign, almost a bit childish but very inviting. The colourful lights make you want to go inside and see what wonders this new restaurant has to offer.

The toilets were nice and clean, can't complain about those at all. The tables were spread out quite spaciously but it didn't help that the staff (and there were a LOT Of them) were charging around with an air of importance which was totally unnecessary with their earpieces in barking orders or whatever they were doing, it really didn't feel as if they were paying attention when you spoke with any of them.Another thing I noticed was that there was no music playing at all and a chap seated 2 tables away from us was speaking very loudly all evening and seemed to drown out any conversation my husband and I tried to have with each other.
My husband and I were given one drinks menu and one food menu between us. After 5 minutes I had to ask for another menu which was brought over immediately without any fuss. The prices for the starters were seemed very steep but we weren't complaining. We'd come out for an anniversary meal and were expecting the food to be delicious and the service to be first class and the prices to be steep. We were asked if we wanted prawn crackers, so we said yes, I noted on the menu they were £2.00 a serving. They arrived in front of us looking rather overdone - first time I'd seen brown prawn crackers - I thought maybe it was a different type of prawn cracker.
