South East Asian food in London is very poorly represented and quiet often disappointing. Thankfully there are a few decent places about and things do seem to be getting better. There are promising signs that the Vietnamese, Thai and Malaysian food that is found in abundance in other western cities like New York and Sydney is slowly gaining ground in London.
Rasa Sayang is a decent option for Malaysian food.
The Roti Canai came with good bread, moist and flaky, the curry to dip it in is also rich and runny just like you get in Singapore and Malaysia.
The Char Kuay Teow is also decent, the noodles are rich having sucked in all the soy sauce. The prawns could have been better, i’m sure they were pre cooked.
The pan fried carrot cake was good but missed something, maybe it was pre made and re-heated, i’m not sure but it was too cludgy, the outside should have been more crunchy. Again I will say that Cha Cha Moons is better.
The Beef rendang was a solid version, a powerful sauce, tender meat.
