“Worth the queue and the terrible decor” – this “crowded” basement dive near Euston has been around in various locations for yonks, but, with the rise of street food as a genre, has become more ‘discovered’ in recent times. “Exciting roti” (“with mutton curry, is ridiculously good”) that are “cheap and authentically delicious” are the pay-off for braving its decidedly “down-to-earth” quarters.

“Brought up in Singapore so the roti with curry sauce was a trip down memory lane!” – this “crazy busy” basement dive near Euston serves a “good representation of Malaysian kopitiam (coffee shop)/hawker cuisine”. “The large number of SE Asian students” and “bargain prices” result in “significant queues and the need to share the tightly packed tables” – which is “annoying… until the food arrives and all is forgiven!”

“Fabulous rotis”“the best in town” – and “really good Malaysian street food at bargain prices” mean this “crowded basement dive” in Euston is one of the few places “worth queuing for”. Don’t let “the location put you off”, and come prepared to share a table with the “students and Malaysians” who flock here.

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).
