    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.

    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!

    Best sushi in Putney, however sushi a bit on the expensive side. Sushi seems to be freshest on Fridays than other days. Place should come up with discount offers from time to time however I recommend!
