Zero points for guessing what this Newman Street restaurant specialises in. The Soho favourite has made a name for itself by serving homely, huge portions (you'll definitely want to take away any leftovers). Pick between things like a Singapore curry laksa, with a coconut curry broth, shredded chicken, and king prawns, and the sour and spicy penang assam number. Just be prepared to ask for about 70 extra tissues when your nose inevitably starts running. It’s one of the best places for laksa in London and the compact but comfortable dining room makes it a great place to come with a small group, or even on your own for a lunchtime date with a bowl of steaming hot broth.
