Harden's survey result
“Small space, big food!” – the winning formula behind this “great Far Eastern” venue, whose menu dexterously hops from Malaysia to Singapore and China (in a good way). It’s “very noisy and appeals to the younger crowd because of the pricing and fairly large portions”.
“The menu might put you off by covering three different Chinese cuisines (Sichuan, Shanghai, Canton) along with Malaysia and Singapore” – but stick with it: the food is “classy”, “portions are generous and the prices reasonable” at this “somewhat crowded but reliable” Pan-Asian in Jericho. It now also has a smart sibling in Chelsea.
“Giles Coren is a fan”, and so are all who comment on this “very noisy” and “cramped” (yet “efficient”) Pan-Asian “in Jericho, close to the Phoenix cinema”, where the “Malaysian and Singaporean dishes are especially good”, and the fare generally is “very reasonably priced”. (See also its brand new, rather smarter Chelsea sibling).
A “proper-basic”, “cramped” pan-Asian, which “might put you off by covering three different Chinese cuisines, along with Malaysian and Singaporean”, but whose results can be truly “excellent”. That said, more than one reporter thinks that “there may have been a little too much gushing” about it (not least by Giles Coren), and “while good, it’s not grrrrrr-eat”!
