“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”).

This “wonderful”, “un-failing” Pan-Asian in the Studley Hotel was one of the first UK restaurants to combine East and Southeast Asian dishes on the same menu when it opened in 2001. “Year after year it continues to be the best all-round dining experience”, with “super staff who greet you like old friends and the most sublime dishes”. “Excellent value for money”, too (always important in these parts…)

For 31 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).
