SquareMeal Review of Chi Noodle & Wine Bar

A hybrid wine bar-cum-noodle joint, Chi manages to fuse both sides of the business with some style. Set over two floors, with a low-ceilinged basement dining room and a ground-floor bar/restaurant, it’s a bright, agreeable space thanks to large windows and modern blond-wood tables. There’s a great deal more than noodles on the vast pan-Asian menu: Korean chilli beef skewers, nasi goreng and Japanese chicken-katsu curry are just some of the eclectic dishes popular with lunch-break diners, while a long list of tapas-style small plates such as grilled pork dumplings or sesame prawn toasts satisfies the unbuttoned, after-work drinks crowd. The long bar serves bottled beers, such as Tsing Tao and Kirin Ichiban, alongside draught Asahi and some attractively priced wines to match the spiciness of the food.

I used to work on Shoe Street, near ludgate circus – Chi Bar was my favourite lunch venue, though Its a little to far away now – I still manage to get there at least once a month. The food is excellent and is modern asian fusion themed. If I have any critisism at all, it is simply that the lack of a specials menu can result in one lacking ‘inspiration’ after having eaten there a couple of dozen times, and I should know :)
