Harden's says

Opened at the start of 2020 – after a series of pop-ups – this funky Clapton canteen serves a short menu of excellent Chinese dishes as filtered by the sensibilities and chef’s travels of (non-Chinese) owners Ellen Parr (ex Rochelle Canteen and Moro) and Pete Kelly (ex Morito). Spicy cocktails also abound as does retro ’80s-tastic decor. Limited survey feedback thus far, but Jay Rayner drooled.

“A terrific take on Chinese food” with “interesting and ‘different’ flavours” wins a warm early reception for this funky Clapton canteen. Opened at the start of 2020 – after a series of pop-ups – it serves a short menu of excellent Chinese dishes as filtered by the sensibilities and chef’s travels of (non-Chinese) owners Ellen Parr (ex-Rochelle Canteen and Moro) and Pete Kelly (ex-Morito). Spicy cocktails also abound as does retro ’80s-tastic decor. Jay Rayner drooled and all our initial survey feedback rates it very good or excellent.

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).
