Le Chinois - Dim Sum Afternoon Tea

Millennium Hotel Knightsbridge

If you’re a lover of afternoon tea then you will love the Le Chinois Restaurant oriental take, located at the Millennium Hotel, Knightsbridge. 

I had the pleasure of attending this wonderful blogger event thanks to the Joe blogs team from Greenlight.












Dim SUM Afternoon Tea – Is a new addition to the Chinois restaurant experience, serving freshly prepared BBQ Pork Buns (Chai Siu Boa), crispy Chicken sticks, crispy Shredded Duck Spring Rolls, steamed Minced Pork Dumplings (Siu Mai), Minced Chicken lettuce wraps, Sautéed Prawns coated with Wasabi, crispy Scallop rolls, Prawns with passion fruit coli (dip fried) & Traditional Perking Duck, and a sweet dish with Mango slices & red bean and pandan mocha cake. 





You will also have some refreshing Oolong and Jasmine Tea & a glass of Champagne.


I arrived at the hotel to a champagne reception were I mingled with the other bloggers before being taken round to our table.











Platters of dim sums were presented to us followed by tea.

Mango slices & red bean and pandan mocha cake


We were given a demonstration on how to crave up the duck - it was delicately sliced by firstly removing the skin and then the meat.

Peking Duck


My eyes were pleased and my taste buds satisfied, the food was simply delicious, there wasn’t anything I didn’t like and to my surprise the beef skewers were soft and tasty which I devoured in seconds, could of eaten a plateful and this is coming from someone who doesn't ordinarily eat beef.

 




The restaurants take on afternoon high tea is perfect if you looking for something different to do whilst out and about in London town and with Chinese New Year around the corner it’s ideal. I would definitely recommend checking this place out for it truly unique afternoon.
