About Mao Tai - Parson’s Green

Described by some critics as having ’among the finest Chinese food in London’, forget everything you ever thought about Chinese food. This contemporary, vibrant place has a cheerful irreverent attitude, which happily culture-hops amongst champagne bubbles and schmoozing long legged girls in party frocks. Imagine a buzzy New York style brasserie with a well-structured wine list that serves memorable Szechwan, Peking and Hunan food. Thin strips of Baby Pork Chops marinated in Honey, Salt & Pepper Soft Shell Crab, Smoked Chicken Shreds, Hot & Sour Seafood Soup, Vongole Clams with Black Beans, Glass Noodle & Mushroom Dumplings, ’Blue Ginger’ Dancing Crab, Crispy Beef Shreds, Sticky Glass Noodles, Leeks with Green Chilli, Tangerine Peel Chicken, Double cooked French beans with Pork mince and everyone’s favourite - Crispy Aromatic Duck or Wok Flashed Vegetables & Croutons with Mandarin Pancakes & Plum Sauce washed down with a cool bottle of Pinot Gris Reserve 1998 from F.E. Trimbach are some of the more popular choices. Efficient service and sharp wit serve to maintain universal praise for the vibrant atmosphere and dishes that whet the appetite.
