The Thames River is one of the natural landmarks of London; it stretches past the city limits to other parts of England. Authors have featured or mentioned the Thames in classic books such as "Three Men in a Boat," "Alice in Wonderland," and "The Wind in the Willows," not to mention countless works of Dickens. Nowadays restaurants of various cuisines have opened along the Thames, including Chinese restaurants.
