The food is authentic and well made with great staff and a great atmosphere. Enjoyed it fully. I had the caramelised pork belly, the beef soup and the deep fried spring rolls. The selection is wide and it’s a busy restaurant so it’s fresh and...More

We ordered three of the set vegetarian meals. As they were all based on tofu maybe our expectations were low. We were so wrong! The food was varied in flavour and texture, vegetables were perfectly cooked. Service was excellent, neither too attentive nor absent. The...More

Really tasty food with an excellent range of choices. We had a really pleasant Sunday lunch here with our children, who tried and enjoyed all of their food. Lovely!

Owing to its proximity to Smithfield Market – the site
of an ancient meat market which remains in operation

you might become accustomed to the litany of slinky
