The Courtesan is all about female talent, incredible dim sum with unusual flavour combinations and great cocktails. It is like nowhere else in the world.
The Courtesan is a truly unique place, it is like nowhere else you’ll find in London, or even the rest of the world. To put it simply, The Courtesan is a dim sum restaurant and late-night cocktail bar where women run the show. The alcohol is created and supplied by women who have infinite knowledge, skill and power in the subject. A wonderful cocktail is guaranteed and you’ll be sure to keep coming back for more.
Since it’s creation in China dim sum has been incredibly avant-garde and at The Courtesan they are keeping this experimental style alive with their fresh approach. They take new flavours, such as Italian ricotta and parmesan, unusual varieties of mushrooms, or sea bass and magic up a decadent, delicious, divine dumpling to ignite your tastebuds.
The drinks are equally glorious, with innovative ingredients and flavours. And if you’re in the mood for experimenting then try a drinks flight where alcohol has been created by women who The Courtesan describe as goddesses.
The true meaning of dim sum is not, as commonly thought, steamed baskets but instead “touch the heart”. The Courtesan will do just that.
We have an all female kitchen, all female management and all female wines and spirits. Hammant Patel, Owner
