Asian: Chinese, Indian, Japanese & Vietnamese

You’ll quickly find that Indian food in London is commonplace, similar to Mexican food in Texas.

Baozi Inn (London)

This restaurant is in the heart of Chinatown and very reasonably priced.  It’s outer window is full of awards stickers and of course photos of its signature dish, baozi (steamed buns with various fillings). The baozi are generously portioned, and between two of these and two side dishes of shredded tofu and Chinese greens with garlic, you can easily make a light meal for 2-3 people. They also have a variety of noodle soups, including spicy beef. Go off hours or be prepared to queue.

Dishoom (Multiple)

This Bombay café has several locations, and offers a great breakfast, lunch, afternoon chai and dinner. We enjoyed a wonderful paneer mango salad and house black dahl, cooked for 24 hours. Always busy and open late, so book ahead.

Hakkasan (Multiple)

Not your typical Chinese restaurant with its sleek interior and unusual twists on traditional Cantonese dishes (cod with champagne and honey, Peking duck salad with pomelo). Apparently, their recipe for success works. Hakkasan is the only Michelin-rated Chinese restaurant in London and they have grown to 12 locations world-wide. Book one of their London locations to experience where it started.
