Expert review of La Xina
The menu is a slightly odd blend of Eastern and elsewhere, with dishes such as ‘roast beef’ (which turned out to be beef carpaccio served on hot rice) and chicken Madras. Mostly the dishes hail from China, with a list of dim sum to start, followed by various broths, wok-fried noodle and rice dishes, and steamed fish.
With velvet banquettes and latticed teak room dividers, this is not your average Soho temple to Formica. You’ll also find a fairly trendy crowd (mixed in among the hotel guests from the adjacent Hotel 1898).
Unobtrusive waiters, easy to flag down.
The entrance is just off La Rambla, on C/Pintor Fortuny.
Main courses are around 15 euros, or at lunchtime there’s a menú del dia for the same price.
