A no-frills Hong Kong-style diner that fills your belly without emptying your wallet
Longji’s brightly lit dining area spreads over several floors, all with HK-pop playing unobtrusively. The menu is long, and includes western-style dishes (such as borscht). One-dish meals are the highlight for cheap eats: two barbecued meats on steamed rice (£6.50), for instance, or fried rice or noodles with a great range of toppings. Many lunchers will be happy with ‘hawker soup noodles’ at prices ranging from £6.20 to £7.20: choose your noodles and toppings (from a list of 20) and slurp down the sizeable portion (in excellent broth) with chilli sauce on the side. The clientele is almost entirely Chinese, and the dumplings (a nice small starter) are well made.
Meal for two with drinks and service: around £25
Best dish under £5: prawn dumplings (£3.60)
Best dish under £7: hawker soup noodles (£6.20)
47-49 Charing Cross Road
Thank you to the residents of Jerome House who took the time to meet and respond to our request for suggestions, and to highlight issues that affect the occupants of the building. Your responses have been presented to the Board for information, and we will be taking a number of your suggestions forward in our programme for the new financial year.
We are now close to completing the roof works and front elevation repairs and decoration at 9, Chalcot Square. We have repaired roof gutters and drains, repaired stone and plaster work and sills, and repainted the building.
We anticipate that the scaffolding will be down within the next two weeks, after our surveyor has carried out post-works inspection.
Thank you to all residents for their co-operation and patience during this time.
