Phoenix Palace is one of the most upmarket of London’s old-school dim sum palaces, set in a series of huge, opulent rooms that’ll make you feel like you’ve walked into an actual Qing dynasty palace (not that we’ve ever been to one). The high-class Cantonese food is several notches up from the standard fare and costs are justifiably higher than the average, but they’re well worth it. The dim sum list is all about the classics, and it’s perfect for an occasion when you want to invite all the friends, or when you’ve got parents or family along for the ride.
