About Chinese Laundry

Chinese Laundry is a project by Tongtong Ren and Peiran Gong since 2015. Growing up in China and have all the food tattooed in our memory till our early twenties and moved to here, we just want to cook the food we crave but could not find anywhere here. We are fussy eaters, so we use fresh produces and good ingredients.

For us cook with full respect to Chinese cooking methods, which truly respects the nature, is the best way to share our food culture. And that’s what we think of being authentic- it’s always the word only comes in when justifying the approaches and motivation.

No.10 Coulgate Street is a small space, we are turning it into a personal dinning room where we'll offer a table of dishes we put together without a fixed menu. This place will allow us to do more than what we can ever before, just because it’s small-which means more flexibility on what we can offer. We are very excited to explore and cook all the food we wanted to share with you.

£35 per person, including corkage if you'd like to bring a bottle of great wine. You can also get drinks from Salthouse Bottles across the road, we’ve selected some wines with them that can go really well with our food- you can check the wine list before you come.

Due to the extremely limited space we have, we recommend you to book a table 1-2 weeks in advance to avoid disappointment. We accept bookings maximum up to 4 people.

Please let us know if you are pescatarian/ vegetarian or vegan, we’ll try our best to assist. Please note some special requests can not be guaranteed, and we are not able to provide gluten free meals due to the nature of Chinese cooking.

Your card details may be required to secure the booking, if you'd like to cancel or edit your booking please do so 24 hrs before the booking time. The card maybe charged for full price £35 per person for late cancellation and no shows.

The food here was SO GOOD! We had the vegetarian set menu and everything was delicious, we didn't leave a thing. Plus the service was great.

The food had little finesse. The fish stock was cloudy. Sticky rice was not good. And should maybe be one each. Dumplings and prawn toast the best thing. Not great value for money. Would not go back.

We had such a wonderful evening here. The food was delicious - paired with excellent wine from across the road. The team were also really accommodating of the fact that one of our party eats meat (the other two of us are pescatarian) - we felt like they went above and beyond to make this a special experience. I've already recommended to all friends near and far, and will continue to do so!

Wonderfully imaginative takes on Chinese food that still managed to taste authentic (if you care about that sort of thing). A really great experience.

I went to the Mountgrove Bothy in February and was impressed with the experience. My experience at the residency in Brockley did not disappoint either. Food, vibes and service were all great - our waitress was great - nice and friendly, gladly answering all of our questions on ingredients and flavors. Great concept and attention to detail, all of which doesn’t go unnoticed! Only thing I’d say is that I didn’t leave thinking it was ‘great’ value for money, but I think it was fair. I’m not sure I would come back for the same meal again, but given the fact that the menu was completely different to the one at Mountgrove Bothy, I would recommend the experience and will probably check out the next residency to see what else this talented chef can do!

Every course was delicious -- we left feeling we'd eaten like kings. Great mix of flavours and textures, all just soothing and lovely.

Generally I thought the whole thing was superb. My least favourite dish was probably the first one, the raw vegetables. There was a bitterness to that wasn’t overly pleasant. My favourite was the mango dessert - I can’t stop telling people about it! Best dessert ever!

It was great experience there. Every course is crafted and tasty. The only thing for me is it's a bit overwhelming and heavy (I normally don't eat meat much). But I recommend it to my friends and colleagues. It's definitely worthing if you want to try some modern Chinese food!

I was deeply disappointed that I missed this booking, unfortunately I was stuck in a traffic jam on the M3 for two hours and was unable to phone to make a cancellation. In these unforeseen circumstances I felt it very unfair to be charged the full amount. I was very apologetic to the waitress on the phone, however, in these circumstances there was nothing I could do, I had to wait until the engine was switched off and the car standstill until I could make the call. I would appreciate not being charged for something that was out of my control. I would like to visit the laundry room in the future as I have heard amazing things.

As good as always, will definitely come back to Brockley for the tender beef and the mango dessert. Thank you.
