Open since 1998, this Chinatown staple has been around longer than most people you follow on TikTok have been alive. And once you try the nasi lemak you’ll understand why it continues to be a top pick for the people who know about it—Londoners who've been time and time before and solo diners craving homely Malaysian classics. You’ll find all the traditional Malaysian dishes, but the go-to move here should be that nasi lemak. Fragrant rice with coconutty curry sauce, alongside tender chicken that’s been cooked in that same coconut-heavy curry. A casual spot, it's perfect for a low-key dinner with a group of friends in central. It's walk-in only and your whole party has to arrive before you get a seat, so consider that before inviting that friend who’s always having “TFL troubles”.
