“Large portions of cheap, tasty food” gives this street-food operation rarity value in pricey Chelsea. “Nothing fancy, just really tasty Vietnamese noodles and soup, located below street level with an eating area under tents”. The name translates as “happy Buddha” – but that’s not why they sell branded T-shirts…

“Delicious Vietnamese street food” – almost certainly “the best” in this part of London – is found at this Chelsea noodle bar apparently meaning “happy Buddha”. The “scrumptious prawn laksa” is technically a Singaporean dish, but who gives a ph**?

“For a simple bowl of fragrant steaming noodles”, reporters give a big thumbs up to this basic, hilariously-named joint, in a courtyard near Chelsea Farmers Market – about as close as you can get to street food in SW3!

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).
