I really like this place, always busy, with a menu that boasts a wide variety of dishes and good prices. Whichever dish you choose, it'll be good.

Used to go here as a student all the time 5 years ago. Went last week and was really disappointed at how rude some of the staff were to us and at how we're basically treated like an afterthought. The food quality is still good however I won't be recommending people to come here like I once did.

When you go in here, just accept that the service is going to be very abrupt and that you'll feel like you're on a conveyor belt, BUT that you'll have delicious food. I had the pad thai and it was fantastic, I've also had a few curries here before. This isn't the place to come for a long, relaxed meal... More

We were very happy with this place as a quick drop in for dinner. The staff were friendly and seated us quickly, they were patient as we looked over the menu of lots of Asian fusion dishes. The meals were delivered very quickly and was delicious. Paying was easy and before long we were on our way.

I had Tori Katsy Curry and it was very good. Probably had better ones before, but I was satisfied with the quality. Service could be better, but I understand that during busy times it is a bit worse.

Went there on 6 June with my family of 3 and a friend for dinner. I have to say the food was similar to what we have in Singapore and its nice. We ordered udon, duck rice, sushi and seaweed salad. In total, it costed us 90+ pounds which I felt is still reasonable for London's standard of living. Customer... More
