Dimsum lunch in Chinatown

  • Mar 10, 2013 · 1:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Come & join me for lunch Chinese style. Dimsum are little dumplings, either steamed or fried and usually pork or prawn based. I will order a selection for the table and everybody shares. The cost of the food is shared and usually works out approx £12-14 per head.There is plenty of food and you won't be hungry. However if you are, after lunch we head to the Curzon on Shaftesbury Avenue where we can relax downstairs in the basement with coffee & cake - cheaper than Starbucks and a much better selection of cakes!

    It was a great lunch, thanks for everybody who came (which was only 2/30), and shame on you for not turning up. The restaurant manager was furious that there were so many no shows & gave me a lot of grief. I am no longer going to be hosting dimsum lunches. It is not worth the hassle.

      Juanita,I did not get a chance to attend this event I was not confirmed but as a bit of support from one organizer to another, when you do events like this and a deposit is needed I ALWAYS set up the event RSVPS so that anyone who confirms themselves as yes they are attending needs to pay their deposit upon RSVPing otherwise they can't RSVP if they have NOT PAID via paypal direct to you there's an option for this. I also adjust the refund policy so that if a member does not notify me within 7 days of the event happening they can't make it the deposit is NON refundable. This way you're covered you have everyone's deposit up front to pay the restaurant and you're not using your own money, it helps to reduce the no shows and those that don't turn up ( there may be one or to) you're not out of pocket for that member as you have already secured their deposit. Don't be put off next time just approach it differently when it comes to deposits. Good luck

    Hi Juanita, I would like to apologise for not attending - I was on the wait list until the morning of the lunch when I got an email at 11.00 to say I was confirmed for the meetup. Unfortunately, I have only just checked my emails and was not aware I had been confirmed.

    I am genuinely sorry; I did want to go to this meet up - i just thought that since i hadn't heard anything on saturday there wouldn't be any free spots.

    Juanita,

    Thank you for organising the event, I really enjoyed it.

    An appalling attendance by this Meetup Group (fewer than 3 of us) to this event. The event host lost a deposit she had given for the booking and has had a great deal of aggravation from the restaurant's manager, who felt they should be compensated for lost business, only 14 out of 48 turned up.

    The turn out for this event was disgraceful and no doubt this restaurant, and possibly others will no longer take large group bookings in the future. If someone takes the effort in organising an event you should have the decency to go when you said you would.

    The food was excellent and very good value and I enjoyed meeting those who had the decency to turn up.

    I'm sorry to hear that, after all your effort to bring so many people together for lunch. I have organised my first socialising event this week and I really hope people turn up to.

      Yes Amy, Juanita has increased the numbers, so it looks like its moving towards "Occupy China City". I'm off the waiting list now, so I'm happy! Yummy indeed!

      January 27, 2013

    • Amy

      I'm so pleased, well done to Juanita that she managed to increase

    Does one get promoted from the waiting list to an attendee automatically depending on where were are on the waiting list? Or do we have to change our status if we see that someone has dropped out?

    January 28, 2013

    • Juanita

      Hi, I have checked the options and you get promoted automatically from the waiting list. The only exception is if you are bringing guests, then you only get promoted when there are sufficient spaces for your party.
