The paparazzi don’t stalk this Notting Hill landmark as they did in the glory days of models and movie stars, but a slick, well-heeled crowd is still drawn to Will Ricker’s concept of fashionable pan-Asian small plates. Mouth-watering dim sum include scallops with lemongrass, black cod and king prawn gow gee, various dumplings, ribs and the ever-popular chilli-salt squid, while the roll call of sushi, sashimi, curries, tempura and larger plates of whole crispy sea bass with ‘three flavours’, Wagyu strip-loin or Korean lamb with kimchi will make a sizeable but delicious dent in your bank balance. The restaurant’s interior is restrained and minimalist, with dark wood and crisp white linen, although a lively flash of pink in the bar announces great cocktails and a terrific buzz. Outside are neat banquettes set into the frontage, along with a few pavement tables where you can smoke and dissect your latest deal or shopping spree.

I've booked E&O many times for other people as a VA so I thought it was about time I tried it out. I recommend booking at least a week in advance the restaurant does get very busy. I was welcomed by a bright smile and the friendly, efficient service lasted the whole evening. My friend and I had a lot to catch up on but the staff didn't interrupt unnecessarily. I ordered the chilli tofu and my friend had the sea bass. The portions were bigger than I expected and we could have shared sides rather than a rice each. Food is fusion Asian, delicious but probably a tad too spicey for me. There seemed to be chilli in everything including the brown fried rice. The Buddha Margaritas made up for it and soon helped sooth my taste buds. Expertly blended sharp citrus with the warmth of the tequila. Atmosphere is buzzy, dance music on in the background, close packed tables with a constant stream of diners. It wasn't too loud or busy that we couldn't have a good chat, tongues loosened by the tequila of course! Great for a date and their private room is very handy for large group or business dinners.

Our sharing food arrived and we still didn't have any plates
We didn't receive our wine and had to remind them again - once all the food had arrived
First time I've ever been offered the choice of round or square tables…made me feel like I was in an episode of “Playschool”. Nevertheless, early pretentiousness aside, this was a very pleasant meal and I'd happily go there again. The food, from the dim sum to the black cod, was excellent. Service was attentive and timed exactly right. Thought both the restaurant and clientele were trying a bit too hard to be trendy but maybe that's just me. Atmosphere felt slightly forced as a result, but with the right company you don't need anyone else.
