    Ordered prawn soup that had nothing to do with what was written on the menu and I have horrible metallic aftertaste.

    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.

    Affordable prices, and super-big portions. Perfect dinner or lunch for a very hungry student. If you can still move after eating everything, you should totally try their mochi ice-cream! :)

    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!
