Summary

“You know what to expect” and “you still get what you pay for” at these “good staple” Asian canteens, which “epitomise cheap and cheerful dining” and whose “reliable and reasonably healthy” noodles and curries are “great for a speedy, fresh-cooked meal”, particularly with kids in tow.

Summary

“The UK’s rising standard of Asian cuisine has outpaced these well-established noodle canteens”, but – for a “fresh and reasonably healthy” bite, with “generous portions and reasonable prices” – armies of fans still say it’s “a great format”, and “a staple with kids”.

Summary

For a “swift”, “no-frills”, “fuel stop” – particularly “with kids well catered for” – many still recommend these “casual” communal noodle-refectories, even while acknowledging that the food is “nothing special” nowadays.

Summary

This “crowd-pleasing” Asian noodle chain remains “a safe bet” for most reporters (and kids, in particular, undoubtedly “love it”); it’s “fallen a long way from where it once was”, though, and the food “while fresh, lacks the real taste of the East”.
