Hard to go wrong here, food is cheap, served quickly and tastes good. Bit squashed seating-wise, but for a quick bite to eat, it's perfect. They do takeaway too. Food is good quality and prices better than the majority of places in Kensington that serve similar. Not a romantic dinner for 2 place, but for a cheap an cheerful lunch, it's hard to beat!

The only Chinese restaurant I visit in the area. Has been consistent in the quality of their dishes since 2000. Believe it or not! That's when I first had my meal in this quirky restaurant. Be warned, could be really busy during meal times. Yes, not enough space between you and the next person, you try not to look at the plate of other diners but sometimes the urge to ask them what they've ordered can't be helped as the aroma and the visual feast are occasionally too overwhelming. Anyhow, give it a go and enjoy the experience.

This little noodle bar at the eastern end of Kensington High Stree just opposite the Royal Garden Hotel is quite fabulous.
It serves chinese soups and rice or noodle dishes that are really very tasty. All the ingredients are of the highest quality, that is no "plumped up with emulsifier" chicken that is found in many other outlets, the Stick and Bowl always serves only the best. That is why it is always full of Asian diners who know just what they are eating. It's a great place too for a quick bite inbetween shopping on Ken High Street in the daytime or after a visit to the nearby Royal Albert Hall, although the place stops serving at 11pm.
A really friendly noodle bar that gives excellent value for money.

and hope it will stay here for many more years to come.

It's a small Chinese eatery (cafe style) further down Kensington High Street. There is one table to seat 4, but the majority of the tables are over stools. So, it's always busy and sometime you'll have to wait for somewhere to sit.

Excellent service, great tasting food and reasonable prices.

I go to Stick and Bowl, because the food there is absolutely amazing. The staff are memensly friendly and are great with little children. The prices are rock-bottom low, but the food so tasty. The atmoshere is excellent and it opens until 11.30! Great after work! Finding something cheap for the whole family to enjoy is hard work, but look no futher! Just go to 31 High Street Kensington. I go there or takeaway at least one time a week. Although it does not deliver to your house, the charm and friendliness will blow you away!
Au revoir!
