For a “cheap ’n’ cheerful” scran-fest, Frank Yeung’s small Peckham café comes highly recommended by reporters as distant as Gloucester! It’s all about the tasty Taiwanese bao – a total wow!

Frank Yeung’s “friendly and small Peckham cafe serves delectable Taiwanese street food, in particular heavenly steamed buns”. In February 2018 he opened a Tooting spin-off Daddy Bao – see also.

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).
