Four Seasons

12 Gerrard Street Soho London W1D 5PR

You’re most likely to be lured into this Chinatown restaurant by the glowing bronzed roast ducks hanging in the window. Have no fear – they taste every bit as good as they look. Order them with a stack of pancakes and some hoisin sauce, or simply sliced on a bed of rice, on or off the bone: pure melt-in-your-mouth pleasure. The decor here is very old-school – one large brightly lit dining room, with gilded red chairs set around no-frills tables – but the service is extremely friendly, and if you’re not a duck-ophile there are plenty of alternatives, at good prices. And the extended hours means it’s a good spot for a late-night feed.
