I first reviewed Mr Lau’s last year when it was still quite new (review here) and I have been back about 6 times since then. It has quite mixed reviews on Trip Advisor but I think some of them are a bit unfair. I haven’t been when its really busy, but I don’t think I have ever had anything to complain about.
We popped in for lunch on a Saturday about half 2 as I fancied some Dim Sum. I had a look through the Dim Sum menu but it was now 3 for £10, where as it used to be 4 for £10. Being someone who loves there food and is usually starving I don’t think 3 is enough for me. I didn’t want to pay the extra for a 4th as it would come to over £13 then. Please bring back the 4 for £10!
I then saw that they did a lunch time special, which has a starter and a main for £7.50. This is a much better deal than 3 dim sum for £10. I opted for this and went for the vegetable spring roll starter and chicken in chilli and garlic for the main.

I tried one of these, they were not bad, but I prefer something meaty. She really liked them.

Overall it was a nice Saturday lunch, the total of the bill came to £22, this was for 3 dim sum, the 2 course lunch time special and 2 drinks. The waitress that served us was new (I think), as I hadn’t seen her before, I think she was Polish. My only critical point would be that she didn’t seem interested in serving us and was very short when speaking to us. She took the food order but not the the drink order so i had to quickly remind her that we needed some drinks as well.
Will I be going back to Mr Lau’s? Yes, I will be going back. Maybe on a Sunday when its 4 dim sum for £10.
