“Unique, authentic and to a high standard” – the tasty Vietnamese and Singaporean bowls at this street noodle bar present some of the best eating value in expensive Chelsea. A South East Asian counterpart to the ‘dirty burger’, the name apparently means ‘happy Buddha’ – and you can buy the T-shirt or cap to prove you’ve eaten here.

“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 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).
