We finally completed the epic journey to Mordor - sorry, we mean Colindale - to check out Bang Bang Oriental. The first thing to note is this place is massive. There are 30-odd vendors in there and even though it’s really nicely done, you can’t help feeling overwhelmed when you get there. With that in mind, we recommend you start with Xi Home Dumplings and Buns. These handmade dumplings are some of the best we have had in London. Then after that, we’re sorry to say, you’re kind of on your own. We did enjoy some of the other stalls - the roast duck from The Four Seasons was great and the Korean fried chicken wings were good, though we wouldn’t say any of it was worth the commute. There are frankly just as good or better and even cheaper versions of each type of cuisine all over London. But if you live near Colindale (or enjoy taking the tube to Zone 4 just for the sake of it), then this is a great place to grab some mates and hang out.
