Word of mouth travels fast. Especially when the words of that mouth make your own mouth water…
Four Seasons in Bayswater is famous.
So famous in fact that you’re lucky to make it through the door, they’re that busy.
This Chinese restaurant is always busy. So make sure you book in advance. And then confirm your booking on the day…don’t say I didn’t warn you…
But I digress.
I’d only heard about this place. And every time Four Seasons was mentioned, it was followed by : ‘ You need to try The DUCK’
Now when you have friends that just know the menu inside out, you just let them order:
Crispy Black Pepper Squid
& Pak Choi
Washed down with Chinese tea.
Oh wait. I’m forgetting something…
We were 5, so a full roast duck seemed sufficient.
Soft and slightly sweet, it stole the limelight
…but was definitely worth it!
The food was served quickly, despite the place being swarmed each time I’ve been.
The Asian Destination Advice:
Don’t go here if:: you’re looking for an exceptional dining experience.
Before I’d even made my visit, I was warned by friends, that customer service here…is not the best.
You may be thrown the bill as an attempt to vacate your table to accommodate the throngs of people waiting in line for a seat!
Do go here:: for the food.
I have a theory, that if natives enjoy a restaurant then it can only be a good thing. Four Seasons is a prime example of one such restaurant.
And was the duck worth it?
It does melt in your mouth.
And whether it’s worth being thrown a bill at the end?
I’d take it…question is, would you?
