Will Ricker’s pan-Asian trailblazer marches on – an ever-popular, rambunctious rallying point for Notting Hill’s smart-set socialisers, glitterati and hedge-fund moguls. They come here for the cool vibe, the cool music and the cool cocktails (try the lychee martinis) – not forgetting the near-faultless cooking. The menu hops cheerily around South-East Asia, taking in everything from miso, tofu and wakame soup or date and water chestnut dumplings to peppered tuna, chilli salt squid, spare ribs with black beans and the highly sought-after black cod with sweet miso – although one reader cites the cubes of crispy pork belly with black vinegar among her ‘favourite things’. All of this takes place in a trendy, smart-casual setting of paper napkins, starched white tablecloths and chopsticks in tins. Staff sometimes have a touch too much attitude, but service is generally ‘fabulous’.
