Cheaper than chips and great mixture of asian foods, service was friendly and food was a higher standard than the low prices suggest - highly recommend, but am almost hesitant to do so in case they up their prices !!

We finally got round to trying this out, wondering why we left it so long! Really good value, delicious authentic food with good service and a nice atmosphere. Much better value than Wagamama, would definitely recommend!

Good location for lunch or casual dinner with friends or family. I had an amazing noodle soup and jasmine tea for less than £7. My friend had some sort of beef dish with rice that was OK.

Seemingly frequented by those in the know, this is a great place to enjoy a wide selection of noodles and bento boxes. Reasonable prices, even serve beer! Can get busy but worth it.
