Cute is a word that you might associate with baby animals, children’s shoes, and nineties teenagers describing Boyzone. But this restaurant in Notting Hill is exactly that, cute. It’s a small, cosy spot on a residential side road and the ceiling is covered in lanterns and fake cherry blossoms. They serve small plates, such as Sichuan spice and sesame noodles, as well as some bigger rice dishes like their Taiwanese braised pork on rice, and several cocktails and sake pairing options. This place is perfect for a lowkey birthday or a romantic date night that’s more about crispy pork wontons and petting the resident dog than candlelight. This place gets busy, so be sure to book ahead.
