“Always good, always reliable, always full… which is unfortunate if you want a table last minute” – this Singaporean/Malaysian “old favourite” in a shopping parade near Swiss Cottage is sought out by hungry regulars, “as it has been for decades” (fans include Giles Coren, restaurant critic of The Times). Service is “fast”, but it can also be a little “rushed and unsmiling”.

For 32 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).
