This restaurant successfully fused malaysian and japanese food together and come out in an authentic taste by itself. Price is reasonable and the portion is big!

Great Asian food at the restaurant. My son had Japanese, I had Malaysian and my husband had noodles. All were excellent. Service is very good and efficient (which was good because we wanted a quick lunch). We were in London for a conference and ended up eating there or getting takeaway several times during our stay and it was always... More

I work just around the corner from this place and so have visited this restaurant probably over 10 times now. Me and my work colleagues go here for special occasion lunches every now and again or for catch ups. My boyfriend meets me from work sometimes just so we can go and eat here! It's great little place with delicious... More

I went here today for the first time ever and I just loved it. The menu is simple and straightforward and super yummy. I had the roast duck that was served with hot sushi rice, pak-choi and some sort of sauce and as well I'd ordered salmon sashimi, endame and miso soup. (I was super hungry!) Anyway, for sure will...

Well Its closed to my place so I come here quite often. Food is good and reasonable. Service is okay. Some waitresses dont smile at all, first time I thought they were tired but the next time I came I still see they never smile. Even though they still offer what you need obviously without a smile.

We were staying in the area during a week long visit to London in May. We went to this restaurant 3 nights because the food was really tasty, the service was terrific and the overall experience was enjoyable. One night was particularly busy but it wasn't long until a table was found for us. There are too many dishes to... More

This place is the best noodle bar I know. I have been coming here for over 15 years and I am never disappointed in terms of price or quality/quantity of food. I would truly recommend you coming here and giving the place a try out. I love all the dishes on offer and the amount of heat in the dishes... More

I have been here many times. With family and friends in tow. Always a pleasant experience. Service is great and food delicious. Love their fried chicken wings and their salmon teriyaki. And being halal is a added bonus.

Great choice and always busy so that must prove its popularity, always a good sign Have eaten in and had takeaway and I was certainly not disappointed on either occasion. Will certainly be going back when next over in London.

this is a very busy little place but worth the wait for a table. There is a great range of food to choose from and it is really tasty, washed down by a good selection of teas. Highly recommended!
