I have eaten here for years, both takeout and dining in and it never disappoints. There is an extensive menu that is supplemented by special dishes that change every few months. The service is excellent and very quick.

I eat here often at lunch times, it is for me comfort food at its best, the beef with black bean sauce is a large bowel of glossy medium spicy sauce with large chunks of red and green peppers and onions with a mass of tender beef, served bubbling hot with rice and a cup of tea for less the...

This restaurant is a little further out in Putney on the upper Richmond Road, it serves food from all over Asia. The portion sizes are very good and the prices are even better... won't get a better chicken katsu curry then you will at this place believe me. Tasty sushi platters. Service is not the most amazing, staff won't frequent... More

I've been ordering your miso ramen soup for years now and every few months I come back the portion is SIGNIFICANTLY smaller. This time it was less than half the bowl... Although very tasty it is not good value for money anymore.

Lovely and better alternative to some of the other pseudo-Asian chains. Tasty and flavourful, with helpful staff.

We went on a Saturday evening, a pre movie meal. We went for starters and a main course. The starters came up hot and tasty - spicy chicken wings, spring roles and king prawns all delicious and piping hot. We then had a variety of main courses chicken and black bean sauce, teriyaki chicken and teriyaki salmon- beautifully presented and... More

Visited early evening for a light meal (for three) before going to a theatre production. Has been over a year since our last visit but the quality of food and service has been maintained. Soft shell crab and tempura prawns were perfect, as were gyoza with octopus (!), seared tuna with delicious garlic based coating and pumpkin croquettes. Staff are... More
