Our reviews are based on an annual survey of ordinary diners which runs in Spring each year. But this establishment has not yet gathered enough feedback for our editors to write it up.

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).

What the Newspaper Critics are saying

The Sunday Times

Giles Coren finally caught up with the Malaysian ‘kopitiam’, or coffee house, near Queensway that rival reviewers raved about last summer –  a “mad, gorgeous, nostalgia- driven passion project” that takes you “through some sort of time and space portal, into Kuala Lumpur in 1967”.

“But it’s not what I came here to review”, he mock-excused himself. “It’s old. It’s been reviewed. Sure, I didn’t know about it till last week, and nor did you, but we can’t have old restaurants reviewed in The Times. Only shiny new ones like, for example, Med Salleh Viet, [an] offshoot project about half a mile away on Chepstow Road… Which is so new the bright yellow and blue paint on the walls is still pretty much wet.”

The food here is every bit as delicious at Kopitiam’s, including standout hand-crafted summer rolls, “the rice paper case stretched tight over fat prawns, crunchy vegetables and herbs, so that they seem encased in edible polythene”.
