Harden's says

Already an Instagram favourite, this Malaysian cafe serves up regional laksas, hawker stall classics, noodles and sharing plates, with a dedicated selection for vegans and veggies.

“The best laksa ever” (spicy noodle soup) might be overdoing it, but this well-appointed two-year-old, just off Oxford Street, wins consistent praise for its Malaysian cooking.

“The best Straits cooking I’ve found, outside of SE Asia… indeed, having recently returned from two weeks in Singapore/Malaysia, it actually beats a lot of the hawker food I had over there!”. This new operation just off Oxford Street “mostly serves laksa” (spicy noodle soup) with “up to ten different regional variations of the recipe, each one delicious”. “Some dishes are merely good, but the highs really hit the top notes!”. “Downstairs is larger”, but more “loud, noisy, and canteeny” than the space above.

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).
