Has anyone tried the new Dim T restuarant at More London? Recommended? I think its just opened - was surprised to see it (as its seemed to pop-up from nowhere) last night on our way to Strada last night.

Ah - I'd been meaning to ask on here if anyone knew what was going to open next to Strada, as they've been working on it for ages.

Looks good! We gave it a try today (Sunday, lunch) and we like what we saw. Nice ambience (manager told us it is "much more modern" compared to the other dim t's in London....I can't comment as I didn't even know dim t is a "chain")
The dim sum was very good (from the trolley) and didn't seem to be on the steamer for too long. The huge bowls of soup seem a bit expensive (7.90) but you really get a lot! You have to order your soup in four steps: choice of meat or fish, choice of noodles (e.g. japanese rice or egg noodles), choice of toppings (e.g. black bean), and choice of broth...or you can have all of that without the broth and it becomes a stir-fry...we didn't try any of the stir-fry but my soup was quite good, maybe a bit too spicy.
There are more tables and a bar upstairs which might give a good view of Tower Bridge and the City skyline, but we didn't check that out (yet...)

Went there today as well and was pleasantly surprised. The food was good and freshly cooked with decent ingredients and was reasonably priced. The manager seems to be good and the wait staff were pleasant but one lady was really quite annoying - chinese with a strange londonish accent with the questioning intonation of a small australian child.

Anyway, definitely a good addition to the area and if the quality remains it will become a regular fixture.

No connection etc...

i was disappointed to find a miserly 2 prawns & little else (other than noodles)in the seafood laksa.Judging by the other postings maybe i simply chose the wrong dish.

I'm not an expert at Din Sum but enjoyed what I had!

It was excellent when I went, especially the spinach dim sum. I say go, I'll be going back.

I went to Dim T, More London last Saturday. We had to book as it was very busy. The food was really good and so reasonably priced! (90 for 4 people which included 4 starters, 4 mains, 3 desserts, 1 coffee, 6 beers, 2 wines and 2 lemonades) - BARGAIN!!

The view from there is just stunning, with Tower Bridge fully lit at night. Once the upstairs is open it will be better as my view downstairs was slightly obscured by the front door.

If you do go, you must try the 'Iced Berries' dessert - frozen berries with a jug of melted white chocolate to pour over - I've been craving it ever since!!

One question though - how does the white chocolate stay runny once on the frozen berries? I would love to know!!
