Shikumen Aldgate Shikumen at Dorsett City follows in the footsteps of its flagship restaurant at Dorsett Shepherds Bush which has received rave reviews from critics and hotel guests alike since it launched in 2014, including a Bib Gourmand from the Michelin guide inspectors. They highlighted the "impressive homemade dim sum at lunch and excellent Peking duck" as the standouts at this "sleek Cantonese restaurant" and this city sibling close to Liverpool Street station has all the right ingredients to follow suit.
