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.

£40 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 vegetarian or vegan, we’ll try our best to assist. Please note if you have severe peanut, sesame, shellfish allergy or are celiac we don’t recommend you to dine with us. 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 will be charged for full price £40 per person for late cancellation and no shows.

Amazing food!! Been three times and the food has been incredible every time. Staff are also super friendly. Would be better if you didn’t have to share tables, but it’s understandable in such a small venue.

This was our second and sadly last time at the pop-up, at Brockley. The service is exceptional, the food is delicious and together they turn a meal into an experience! I hope I will have many night eating at Chinese Laundry!

Was one of the best meals I had in London. Both me and my partner were blown away by the flavours. Every dish vas unique and a pleasure for our taste buds. The service was lovely and calm which I appreciated as is a small space and calm from front of house is necessary.

Really great food... Each of the 7 dishes was carefully and beautifully prepared. Flavours were delicious, original and yet authentic. Personal favourites were the Mapo Tofu and the beef, pork and burnt chili dumplings. Would highly recommend. So glad I managed to make it before the residency in Brockley ends.

Really enjoyed the food and style of a set menu - forced us to try things we may not have. Delicious, interesting flavours, great for sharing. Just fantastic all round. Thought the space worked really well, great location.

Wonderful homely dining experience I shared with my husband. We had 6 courses of delicious and beautifully presented dishes which were an explosion of flavours. The service was fantastic Ellen explained to us what was in each dish when it arrived. I loved the Dandan squid and Mango Sago Pomelo. My husband loved the fried chicken and bean & olive dumplings.

I wanted to love Chinese Laundry and they did such a wonderful job of accommodating vegan requirements. The staff were beyond lovely and the food was comlpex and interesting (and very filling!) Maybe we hyped it up too much for ourselves as we'd heard such amazing reviews, but overall the experience was kind of crammed, quaint, but tasty. I'd suggest folks go along, but we won't be following the residency or returning, unfortunately.

Superb pop-up dinner! They had all the delicious alternatives for us, as we are both vegans. Service was quick but not rushed, nicely explained each dish with a smile. I highly recommend, looking already to rebook!
