About Gung Ho Chinese Restaurant

A popular Chinese restaurant in London's West Hampstead, the long-established Gung Ho serves an original range of authentic and good-value Szechuan dishes. There are several old favourites like sesame prawn toast, but it's more exciting to kick off with soft shell crab in peppercorn salt or braised spare ribs with star anise and rock sugar. For mains, a great selection of seafood dishes includes 'sea-spice' prawns with chillies and peppers, and red-braised monkfish fillet with Chinese mushrooms and soy sauce. Meat-eaters can wield their chopsticks at burnished shreds of crispy duck or Mongolian lamb with iceberg lettuce wraps. You can't go wrong with the sesame-coated toffee apples and bananas, but Gung Ho gives you the chance to branch out and try toffee pineapples or lychees instead - a refreshing change in every sense.
