This was the first dim sum outing I took Dad to. I was excited to hear of a new Chinese Restaurant opening in Watford, Hertfordshire. Even more so when it was a restaurant with dishes aimed at Chinese people, not western palates! It does dim sum too!?!?! RESULT! It has a sister restaurant in London's Chinatown and I've yet to sample the fare there but I've read that it's good.
Imagine my horror when I discover the Watford site has a two-tier pricing policy!?!? Monday to Friday is the first price banding and not cheap either for that matter! Weekends you will be expected to pay around 40p-80p more on your dim sum dishes! Making a list of items we would normally order if having dim sum (just myself and Mr Leaf), it worked out we would spend £10 more if we ate there at weekends!
