One of the most anticipated London openings in 2018, Kyms, which opened in July in the Bloomberg Arcade, certainly did not disappoint.
The brainchild of critically acclaimed chief Andrew Wong, Kyms was named after the restaurant his parents opened in Pimlico in 1985. Following a tour of China in 2010, Wong fine-tuned his skills in the art of Chinese roasting and the craft of the famous Cantonese dim sum. He then opened A. Wong on the site of his parents’ original restaurant in 2012, and in 2018 a new Kyms was born.
These perfectly honed skills are fantastically in evidence in this restaurant where the menu pays tribute to ancient Chinese roasting techniques and the creativity and craftsmanship of London’s Chinatown. Choose from the staples we know and love such as Sweet & Sour Pork Ribs and Prawn Wonton Soup through to Sichuanese Spiced Aubergine, Slow Poached Soy Chicken and Iberico Pork Char Sui. We couldn’t agree more with the Evening Standard’s Fay Maschler who said “chinese star delivers another galvanising experience”. One of the few restaurants she has given 5 stars to in her 45 year career to date, Kyms is well worth a visit.
