I have visited twice and both visits were great. It is close to work so I have had to train myself not to visit too often..
Got takeaway yesterday and ordered Chicken Chilli & Black Bean Lo Mein with noodles, veg spring rolls, chicken kara-age and requested an extra spicy chicken chow mein- all for £26
Usually when asking for changes in spice level, it's either not done or completely ruins the taste of the dish, however, the chef kindly accommodated and created the best chow mein i've had in London.
Chicken Kara-age was very good, tasty, not oily and came with sauce and salad.
Sushi rolls were amazing also, very flavourful.
Panang curry was also a hit, good level of spice and balance of flavours. Not usually a fan of Japanese/ Thai curries but this was delicious.
Definitely recommend, good value for money.

Need I say more, always nail it on these go to dishes. But to be fair had to ask twice for extra sauce. BUT was well worth the wait, absolutely delicious.

This place never changes. The good is great, cheap, and fast. I've been eating here for years, since my days as a university studen and every dish tastes just as I remembered it. You must try the king prawn fried rice, the curry laksa and the wakame salad. The sushi is amazing.

While there could be a line outside and I'm not one to line up for food, you need to wait in line for this place. They seat you quickly and the food and prices are worth it. It's also in the Brunswick Centre with a few shops nearby and the Russell Square station is 2 minutes away.

Sometimes one needs to share a tressle style table, however, the restaurant is quite roomy.
The menu is varied and one can get a good portionon main meals. The venue is a short walk from Ealing Broadway Station.

I went to the restaurant week ago and it was second time. I ordered:
Tofu and Vegetable Lo Mein & Matcha (green tea) parfait
I can't describe how amazing the food was. And the ice cream was exceptional!

Everything would be perfect if the tables had more space in between, there is NO privacy. And it's difficult even to get into your seat as you can move or knock dishes from neighboring table. ..
