“So good – writing this now makes me crave their tofu noodles!” – this Oxford institution takes a culinary tour tracing the voyages of China’s legendary fifteenth-century admiral Zheng, with a handful of dishes from each of Sichuan, Canton, Malaysia and Singapore. There’s now a smarter branch in Chelsea.

“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.

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).

"We had a good but not exceptional meal chosen from a varied ASEAN menu. Efficient service but quite quiet for a Sun lunchtime. Slightly dull ambience. "

"The nasi lemak and beef rendang were both delicious and as authentic as anything I have eaten outside of Malaysia. Must remember to come more often."
