Went to Seamstress on a friends recommendation and absolutely loved it. Went on a Monday for lunch and had the place to ourselves which ensured the best service. Will definitely recommend to others and plan to come back here!!

What a find! We went here on NYE, the night when most restaurants struggle to cope and charge a fortune, and we couldn’t have been happier! Lovely atmosphere in the bar upstairs, interesting and different tastes in the degustation menu, and the service was so friendly and cheery it was a breath of fresh air! We will definitely return!

We totally enjoyed our New Years Eve degustation dinner, thanks to wonderful staff (as always) who had to work on this special night. Even though the iconic Brussels sprouts weren’t part of the menu they were whipped up for us when we asked - now that’s what I call excellent service! We will definitely be back

Could do with a few more vegetarian choices but other than that a great venue, very good range of choices for Coeliacs and an interesting wine list

Came back here again as the first 2 times were really good. However, the foods/recipes have been changed. They are still nice thou but I prefer the old taste and presentation.

Quaint location but rather hidden. Stood outside looking for 5 mins not actually seeing the sign!

About Seamstress Restaurant

Things aren’t what they seam The Seamstress Restaurant lives in a house steeped in history. This is one of Chinatown’s hidden gems. At first it kinda feels like you’re climbing up stairs into a forgotten attic but once you’re there the space is a pleasant surprise. You see, Seamstress restaurant lives in a 120-year-old building that was once a textile factory and even an old Buddhist monastery. Now it’s a jazzy restaurant that does modern Cantonese food with panache. It’s a pretty sight to behold, and a break from the red and gold Chinatown standards. With bare bricks and light polished wood, this restaurant has a fresh and contemporary atmosphere. Here you’ll find a lunching business crew and curious customers after an elegant dinner. Based on the dishes of China, the menu also makes some detours into the flavours of Asian, and each item has a small medium and large so you can build your own delicious course or share the goodness with friends. Forget raucous Chinese restaurants and getting nudged by yum cha trolleys! Come to Seamstress and make the most of Chinatown’s best kept secret. Best dish: 12-hour braised Berkshire pork belly, jicama salad and kohlrabi kimchi
