Asian Tapas is nowadays the focus at Mr Ji's, which started a few years ago as a stall selling Taiwanese fried chicken in Camden; this bricks and mortar branch opened in January 2021, with a little help from the team behind cult favourite Ta Ta Eatery.
Harden's survey result
“A Taiwanese take on the fried chicken phenomenon, which comes with a punchy Sichuan kick” at Samuel Haim’s heart-of-Soho haunt. After years in Camden selling street food, this bricks -and-mortar branch opened in late 2019, and has morphed into a more full-service offering (with a little help from the team behind cult favourite Ta Ta Eatery). The menu centres around the chicken, alongside a fun selection of trendy Asian snacks and small eats: chicken gizzards with cream cheese and Doritos anyone? It worked for Jay Rayner anyway: “reasonably priced and well-executed”. Reporters similarly feel it’s “fun”, with “so many things to choose” and delivering “excellent” results.
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).
