what the critics say


Guy Dimond - 2/5

Tuesday, January 17, 2012 - Noodles feature prominently. Singaporean-style laksa, and the Burmese/northern Thai dish called khao soi used remarkably similar-tasting spice mixes, and the yellow noodles used in both dishes were the same. Nasi goreng tasted mainly of the fried rice, yet contained much the same colourful hotchpotch of ingredients found in many of the other dishes: boneless chicken, shiitake mushrooms, lime leaves, spring onion, red capsicum pepper - a jabberwocky of nations and ingredients unlike any version I've had in Indonesia...I liked it enough to visit three times, even though it's not the 'The Real Thing' - but if that's what you're really looking for, you'll need to buy a long-haul ticket going east.

With the number of competitors in the "pan-Asian" market, not sure what the point of this restaurant is. The restaurant looks nice, but the food was annoyingly bad. Had to send the Vietnamese fried beef noodles back twice .., the first time because the plate (at £9) had three small pieces of beef (even the waitress was embarrassed) and the second time because the rice noodles were undercooked. The replacement dish was slightly better but i still had to pick put bits of under-cooked noodles. Dining companions all unimpressed with their dishes. If the dishes were in the £4-5 range, might have been able to suffer them, but at the prices charged, just head to wagamama or busaba...
