To most people, Angel Place is known as that small alley with lots of empty birdcages suspended above. And this was exactly my answer until a friend of mine took me to China Lane, located exactly where these birdcages are.
China Lane is a high-end restaurant serving Asian fusion dishes. The place might not give a hint of the food offerings, as its atmosphere resembles more of a modern lounge room with low lights and light ambience music on the background.
The dishes offered are designed for sharing, and are of small portion sizes. Out of several dishes that we ordered, the ones that impressed me the most were the usual duck pancakes and silken tofu with tomato based sauce. Although they were beautifully prepared and were delicious (and the waiting time was also very minimal), the small portion sizes and the high price range pretty much gives away the idea that you are here for the atmosphere rather than anything.
It also strikes me that the restroom area consists of several tightly spaced toilet cubicles resembling airplane lavatories with the exception of colours.
The staffs were attentive, professional, and informative although a bit more of a courteous friendly service would have had been nice too.
