Park Chinois Review – First Impressions

Park Chinois is a Chinese restaurant in the heart of Mayfair. Shiima and I had walked past its red doors several times on our way to other Mayfair restaurants but we had no idea it was even a restaurant – seemed more like a private members club. We’d also been hearing a ton about Park…

Chai Wu
