Introducing The Ivy Lounge.

Located on Ladywell Walk in Chinatown, The Ivy Lounge is a lovely Chinese restaurant where you can enjoy a luxury dim sum feast.

The team of expert chefs have a wealth of experience which they bring to the restaurant and use to prepare authentic and delicious dim sum dishes. Every visit will tantalise your taste buds and create an unforgettable dining experience.

The menu at The Ivy Lounge is packed with a wide range of traditional and modern Chinese dishes, with a focus on their speciality dim sum. You can expect steaming baskets of dumplings, savoury buns, sweet buns and more, all packed with immense flavour and mouth-watering fillings. You’re sure to satisfy your dim sum cravings here.

The extensive menu covers all of your favourite Chinese dishes and more. Alongside their mouth-watering signature dim sum, they also offer a huge range of other dishes. From salt and pepper chicken wings to Peking spare ribs and triple roast meats to kung pao chicken, there are so many delicious dishes for you to try. Grab your favourites, or try something new on each visit. With the handy location (just across from The Hippodrome) it’s a great option for a quick bite to eat before or after a show too.

If you’re unsure what to choose from the extensive menu, the team have helpfully combined a selection of Chef’s Recommendations to guide you into choosing some of their most favourite dishes. From steamed king prawn and chive dumplings to steamed rainbow Shanghai buns, Hong Kong style pineapple bun and fresh cream egg tarts, they’ve picked out their very favourite dishes for you to sample, making this the perfect starting point if you can’t make up your mind.

Veggies and vegans – there are lots of plant-based options for you to try on the menu too. If you’re unsure what to pick, chat to the helpful staff and ask them to point out the best vegan options on the menu. Enjoy the likes of salt and pepper tofu and the vegetable Monk’s dumplings. All are just as delicious as their meaty counterparts.

You’ll need some drinks to accompany your dim sum feast and whether you go for a traditional tea or a well-balanced cocktail, there are lots of different options to suit all tastes. With a selection of beers on tap and a fully stocked wine list, there are lots of drinks to choose from (as well as soft drinks of course).

The atmosphere is laid back and you’ll feel just as at home grabbing a quick bite to eat before the theatre as you would a long, casual lunch with friends or a delicious date night.
