Named for the Burmese salad of pickled tea leaves, Dan Anton and Zaw Mahesh’s Shoreditch three-year-old delivers “a good experience and tasty food”. Slated for late 2021, they have announced a new Covent Garden sibling will open this year – a 2,500 sq ft unit in the flashy new ‘The Yards’ development (near the recently relaunched Dishoom).

“Top Burmese cuisine, with nice modernising touches” has won a fanclub for this small but growing brand, which as well as operating a ‘street food kitchen’ at nearby Spitalfields Market has this year-old, permanent, white-walled, communal-table canteen. Top Menu Tip – salads, in particular the tea leaf one.

If you fancy trying a still-under-represented cuisine, the latest iteration of this Burmese canteen (originally a Maltby Street stall, and then at a London Fields site which closed in March 2018) has a stylish new home in Shoreditch and “showcases some great and original dishes”. Top Tip: “the Tea Leaf salad is spot on”.

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).
