Harden's says

This new opening is riding all of the current food trends: it's a tiny (12 seats), no-booking, vegan, pop-up-turned-permanent BYO in east London - literally the epitome of cool, on its way to Insta-stardom, no doubt. The inventive Chinese food can also be taken away.

This mid-2019 yearling near London Fields is riding just about all of the current food trends: it’s a tiny (12 seats), no-booking, vegan, pop-up-turned-permanent BYO in east London – Insta-stardom is next, no doubt. The inventive Chinese-inspired food can also be taken away.

For 30 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).
