Chai Wu is located on the fifth floor of Harrods, after venturing through various departments of sportswear and equestrian attire, we found ourselves stepping into Chai Wu. Itís an intimate Chinese restaurant, and they offer an interesting menu. Aside from the restaurant feeling quite small, we certainly enjoyed the dishes we sampled. Service was attentive and the presentation was marvellous.

We started with two glasses of Laurent Perrier Rose, NV a fine champagne which is perhaps once of my favourites. To begin with we ordered Salt and Pepper Squid with Chili and Sichuan Peppercorns, the Squid was delicious and the Chili delivered the perfect combination of flavour and heat. My partner ordered the Crispy Duck Salad with Micro Leaves, and a Sweet Tamarind dressing topped with Pomegranate. A lovely fresh tasting salad with a good blend of flavours.

ďThe presentation was marvellous.Ē

For our main dishes we shared the 200g Wagyu Sirloin Steak with Black Pepper Sauce, along with a side of Egg Fried Rice. Itís hard to put into words just how tender and flavoursome the Sirloin was. Wagyu can taste very different depending where itís procured, and how itís cooked. This cut was incredibly delicious, and we cannot fault it.

To complete our evening we enjoyed a Chocolate Sphere with Berries and Toffee Caramel. Again, absolutely divine and this dish couldnít be improved upon in my opinion. My partner had a Green Tea Chocolate Fondant, the middle of the fondant had the perfect consistency as it slowly poured out. We enjoyed a bottle of 2014, Sauvignon Blanc, Sain Clair, Marlborough. A lovely wine with subtle hints of Gooseberry, Passion Fruit and Citrus flavours.

You canít possibly fail to have an enjoyable evening of good Chinese cuisine. It may be tucked away on the fifth floor of Harrods, but itís a great find.
