This place has established its reputation over the years with great food and very decent prices. I started coming to it a few years ago and have never been disappointed. They constantly update their menu with new stuff and the food quality is always good. It can get busy during lunch or mostly dinner but staff are very efficient in... More

The food here tasted great and pricing was reasonable. Wide selection of food in the menu. However staff service was very poor and some of the staff did not seem to understand what was wanted by the guests although spoke in English. The ridiculous thing was when we requested for some cut chillies to go with our noodles and udon,... More

I have been here a few times. The food is fresh, always good and the service is fast. Always busy with plenty of chinese diners. They must know a good bowl of food. Singapore noodles for me, with a raw veg juice to drink. Others had sushi, duck, noodles. Always enjoyable if a little noisy.

We have been here many times. The food is excellent and very good value. There is (new) a Pad Thai which is delicious- I had this last time a Shashimi with warm Sake, which was also very good. This restaurant is always crowded and full of orientals. which is always a good sign. However the acoustics are not good, and... More

This place is great for a quick lunch or dinner. Very friendly, jolly environment although the waiters could perhaps smile a little. But the service is very fast which is great if you are pushed for time. Portions are big and good value for money.

One of my favourite restaurants in London. Delicious food, quick service and very affordable. I've tried many of the dishes and have never been disappointed. The place is always packed and there is usually a small line of people waiting for a table depending on the time of day, but the turnaround is usually pretty fast.
