May 31, 2020 Russell Mellin

Find out what Asian restaurants to try in London. Ancient tradition and contemporary trend meet in age-old London. One of the most cosmopolitan and dynamic destinations on earth, for centuries the British capital has been on the forefront of whatever has been deemed cutting edge, en vogue, and topical. A thriving metropolis of several million people with a global reach and a worldly outlook, London is at its heart a series of small, interconnected villages with the framework and infrastructure of a modern city joining them together, yet seldom denying each its own distinctive character.

Highly recommended. For 20 years on and off I have searched for a better Indian restaurant. The closest two that I know of are in Bradford and Lowestoft!Raj is always friendly and his food is impeccably spices to your requests.NB book ahead for the once-a-month live Jazz&Curry nights (last Monday of the month — always sells out — maximum 32 spaces)

I am so disappointed. I returned to Yuu Kitchen, a restaurant that was amazing three years ago. The food is nowhere near as good as before. The ribs were a small portion and very grisly. The favour was not as before. The menu has changed. The chef did not have his heart into his creations. I sat overlooking the kitchen and it was not clean. Where is the pride? The restaurant was almost empty - last time it was packed. I can not recommend Yuu Kitchen this time. It is not the place I remember.Hi CyndeeLaw,Sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your experience with us. Having many 5 star reviews on our tapas style sharing menu, we pride ourselves on our product and our service & we are always striving to be better.I would like to investigate further and be able to feedback to you directly regarding your experience.

We went there for a dinner. The service was very good and could even speak german. Drinks and food are brilliant. It was no problem to have an indian dish, which I discovered in Malaysia a few weeks ago. Very delicious. The Tandoori chicken comes without artificial colour - even that was explained when we placed the order. Very fair prizing. It is a pitty they have now some road works outside.Will definitily come back on the next trip.

Sushi Tetsu

Reviewed By Maria50Mike50

Managed to get a booking at Sushi Tetsu which is no mean feat! The hundreds of calls to get a booking made it all worth while to experience Sushi Tetsu. Only 7 places / seating available and the food is served over 3 hours with the sushi chef preparing each dish in front of us. The food & service is superb and though not cheap it is well worth the money spent.

The food is so good, I always find it hard to believe it's such great value for money.We always go for the £15 a head selection, which includes top-ups of any dishes you want more of, as well as a herbal tea at the end.The owner is a really nice guy, really passionate about the food he's serving, which rubs off on how delicious the food is, and how busy the restaurant is.Well worth booking a table, because you won't get in otherwise!

Brought my wife here as she is not a huge fish fan, but she came out a fish lover. I knew she would like it. Attention to detail here for sure, and fish cooked/seared properly.Very different from your greasy battered cod in a country pub. This is fine dining, so does come at a price, however completely worth it.
