Ignore the “dated surroundings”, this well-known local institution under the Studley Hotel “continues to deliver a first-class experience” after more than two decades, and “never lets you down” with its “amazing pan-Asian cooking”, “matched by high-quality service and a good wine selection”. “Whenever we visit Harrogate we make a bee-line for this restaurant”.

The “amazing pan-Asian food” has been a crowd-pleaser at this venue under the Studley Hotel for more than twenty years. “The room itself is perhaps a little drab, but boy the food is good”“we’ve been coming for years and it still has the best Weeping Tiger we’ve ever eaten!”. “Pity the Sunday buffet has gone”, though.

“All Asia is here”, at the longstanding and “wonderful” restaurant underneath the Studley Hotel – “from spicy Thai to Chinese and Korean”. Fans say there’s been “no drop in standards”, with favourites including many “outstanding noodle and rice dishes”. Top Tip: “if you like an open buffet, the Sunday lunch is always good (if you can make your way past diners going for second helpings!)”.

“A touch of class… and in a classy area”: this “unfailing” Pan-Asian occupies the ground and first floor of the Studley hotel and – “a Harrogate institution” of approaching 20 years’ standing – remains the most-mentioned eatery in the area thanks to its “civilised” style and “tremendous” dishes. Top Tip – “Sunday buffet lunch is superb value” and gets “hectic” as a result (at other times the place has a “calm and relaxing ambience”).

For 33 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
