The Family

The North China restaurant was originally opened in 1976 by my father Mr Hung Sun Lou, or Chef Lou as he is fondly known to most.He was head chef in a chinese restaurant in Japan for 4 years before coming to England in 1967, taking the envyable position as First Head Chef in the 'Mr Chow' restaurant in Knightsbridge. After two years he moved on to Edinburgh retaining this postion for a further seven years before moving to London and opening the North China restaurant. Now retired he still cannot keep away from the kitchen and helps out from time to time.
