“The best authentic roti in town” – and fans think “the best Malaysian food in Britain” – means you usually have to queue for a perch at this packed and extraordinarily good-value basement near Euston station. “You won’t regret it”: the roti canai, flatbread served with curry, is “beyond belief” and well worth the discomfort. For the less intrepid, “sister locations Gopal’s Corner in Market Halls Victoria and Market Halls West End are just as good”.

“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!”

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).
