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.

“A great selection of different laksa and very tasty too!” – a key appeal of this street-food destination off Oxford Street, which is named for its Malaysian noodle soups (though other dishes are also served).

“A topspot for Malaysian food”, this three-year-old street-food specialist off Oxford Street serves “top-notch laksas”, following both traditional recipes and chef Danny Tan’s original variations. Service is overseen by the “friendly Aunties who run the front-of-house show”.

“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 33 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).

I had a really disappointing meal at Laksam...

"I had a really disappointing meal at Laksamania. The vegan laksa lacked the authentic taste, the service was slow (our two main courses arrived more than 1/2 hour apart) and the setting was uninspired. "
