Upon returning to London, he opened A. Wong to rave reviews from the Evening Standard, the Guardian, The Independent and The Times. He also won Chinese Masterchef in the UK in 2013. Just nine months after opening, the restaurant's modern exploration of regional Chinese cuisine resulted in it being rated as one of the best Chinese restaurants in the UK by The Good Food Guide, as well as winning a coveted Michelin Bib Gourmand in 2014. When he isn't at work in his kitchen, Andrew contributes to the Ming ai Chinese cultural project, teaches the art of noodle pulling and occasionally appears on TV (he taught renowned British baker Paul Hollywood how to pull noodles on BBC1).
