Rasa Sayang

Malaysian | Soho, Fitzrovia, Covent Garden

There's always room in a Londoner's heart for a joint serving ethnic food at competitive prices, slap bang in the middle of town, with barely an ounce of energy given over to customer goodwill. Surly or even aggressive service in the case of Soho veteran Wong Kei, can be forgiven if the food is good, and it is at Rasa Sayang.

"It's perhaps too cynical to suggest that the restaurant is reserving its best stuff for those in the know; more likely the kitchen simply isn't capable of executing all the items on a long-ish menu to the same standard." READ REVIEW
