    If I had to pick favourites I'd say try the Dragon Rolls or the Curry Laksa but really, everything is delicious. Never disappoints.

    Yasai tempura was tasty - green beans, bell peppers and pumpkin. The staff were pretty indifferent and the decor was dull, but it was quick, tasty and good value.

    This is the 'I want asian food, but without the endless queue, but not the glibbery take-out mush, the real thing, nothing that breaks the bank, but no tourist-trap either'-spot. Always reliable.

    A place for a quick meal. Not expensive but the quality of both sushi and other dishes is average. Duck is probably the best choice.

    There are few places in London that do a decent Singapore Laksa (or 'Curry Laksa' as it's referred to on the menu here). The Hare & Tortoise is my go to place when I'm craving one. Highly Recommend!
