Squaremeal Review of Champor Champor ?

“Amazing“ Champor Champor delivers its creative take on Malaysian food against a “quirky” backdrop of incense-scented romance, with batik textiles and tribal artefacts adding exotic allure to the space – there’s even a table for two up in the mezzanine (“a good spot on date night”, notes a fan). Culinary ambition runs high here, with few classics left unmarked by the fusion brush – duck satay is served with almond-butter sauce and crispy lemongrass, spiced lamb fillet comes with sweet potato mascarpone and julienne of cucumber, while a king prawn curry is embellished with asparagus and butternut squash. You can still find beef rendang among the more innovative offerings on the “unusual but excellent menu” (along with a contingent of Thai dishes), although desserts return to crossover territory for the likes of tom yum brûlée or chocolate and chilli cheesecake. The eclectic list offers some interesting spice-friendly bottles at sympathetic prices.

Cosy little find

The food is great, and some unusual dishes pop up on he menu but it was all delicious, particularly the spicy soup. We went there for a quick lunch on a cold day and it was fairly quiet, but am sure it's get packed with locals in the evening. There is a little table for two up in the rafters which would be a good spot on date night.

We went to this restaurant last night and were very disappointed! I had eaten here before and it had been a good experience but they seem to have changed the chef/ kitchen and the food wasn't what we expected. The beef rendang which is usually a rich slowly cooked dish with a thick gravy was served up looking like a watery coconut soup mess! When we spoke to the manager about this his explanation was that the kitchen were inconsistent and that being Malaysian himself knew that rending shouldn't look...

Champor Champor is an unusual SE1 outpost, a chintzy neighbourhood restaurant where the perfume of incense and romance hangs in the air. The ‘mix and match’ (Malaysian Translation) cuisine is rather unusual; primarily for the fact that it is fusion cooking that actually works (there’s invariably a reason it hasn’t been done before). The highlights were Roast duck breast with sun-dried fish ‘consommé’ with a stripe of fresh chilli sauce; duck leg confit with something called ‘som tam’ and a herbaceous...

I love everything about Champor Champor and it really is – as its name suggests – a mix match of all things good about dining out; from great service, innovative food and an ambience that truly transports you to an altogether exotic climate. Decor and interiors are quirky, yet manage to showcase indo-asian arts and crafts well. Food which begins with appetising complimentary banana breads and tofu skin ‘poppadom’ as well as an interesting array of amuse bouche, continues to make even the most unexcited...

My favourite restaurant in London. Interesting menu which is regularly updated, excellent food, warm quirky decor and great value for money. Minuses are the restricted space and limited wine list. Highly recommended none the less.
