“This place has not changed in 30 years, thank goodness!” – a Swiss Cottage “stalwart” that “packs ’em in every night” (“it gets very loud”) with “slick service and consistently good cooking” from “an excellent range of Chinese and SE Asian specialities”, all at very “reasonable prices”. Top Menu Tip – “laksa is a favourite”.

“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”.

“Reliably delicious food”“with choices from all over Asia” including “incredible laksa” and other Singaporean/Malaysian specialities – ensure that it’s perennially “hard to get a table” at this modest-looking veteran in a shopping parade near Swiss Cottage. It has “very reasonable prices too – what’s not to like?” Giles Coren, restaurant critic at The Times, spends his own money here as a long-time regular.

* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.

“Consistently excellent food with friendly service” – all “at reasonable prices” – ensures that this cramped, pan-Asian veteran, tucked away in a parade of shops near Swiss Cottage, is “always busy”. Giles Coren of The Times claims to have eaten here more than a thousand times, drawn back by the Malaysian and Singaporean specialties.

"A cut above the standard Chinese restaurant with Malaysian and Singapore dishes and interesting ‘specials’. Quite handy for a pre-theatre dinner as it’s a 10 minute walk from the Hampstead Theatre. "

"One of our long time favourites but let down a bit by cooking on this occasion. The Peking duck was very dry and a bit tasteless. The mee goring was good but the Szechaun beef, lemon chicken & green chicken curry were just OK. "
