SquareMeal Review of Arcade Battersea

Bronze Award

An experience at Arcade can feel different for everyone due to its various cuisines under one roof, but there’s one thing we can be sure of - Battersea is a better place for it. Long gone are the days of debating with friends about what we fancy for dinner and trying to cater for picky eaters; this is a one stop shop for everything from tempura squid to shawarma wraps and pork carnitas.

Ordering at Arcade Battersea is all done through an app, and the dishes arrive at the table as they’re ready. With 13 cuisines in total spread across the menu Arcade boasts a pretty exceptional spread - each showcases its own impressive flavour profile, and they begin to arrive at the table thick and fast pretty soon after ordering. The momos (Nepalese dumplings) from Tipan Tapan are particularly memorable - fat chicken dumplings sat in a deeply rich pool of curry sauce and topped with chilli oil for a spicy kick. Manna produces a prime example of what a smashburger should taste like, in our opinion crowning it not only as one of the best burgers in Arcade, but maybe even London. However our favourite dish comes from Bao, the Taiwanese cult brand that has sites across London, with the fried prawn Bao. A truly unique experience whilst also being slightly reminiscent of the best prawn toast you’ve ever eaten.

The space at Arcade is relaxed, with just enough lighting to provide some atmosphere without encouraging you to go for a post lunch nap - turning each visit into a leisurely affair whilst you pick at the vast plates of food ordered.

Arcade’s plethora of choices makes it bearable to go for dinner with fussy friends, and we can’t thank them enough for saving relationships citywide.

About

After the initial success in Tottenham Court Road, Arcade has opened up a second site in the iconic Battersea Power Station, boasting 13 total cuisines across the huge menu. Sat on the first floor, this vast space has plenty of seating, with various eateries lining the edge of the venue, a large bar sits at the back of the room, and a second by the entrance, ensuring you’re never far from your favourite tipple.

There are plenty of new faces at this second site, plus a couple of old favourites. You’ll find a variety of cuisines available, making it a great spot for groups as there’s something for everyone, and with 13 different options, you’re certainly not short on choice. 

London may have a number of burger joints, but Arcade is home to one of the city’s most popular smashed burgers, with Manna bringing the American classic as well as chicken burgers, waffle fries and some indulgent milkshakes. Like things in buns? You’ll also want to check out Bao, the Taiwanese hotspot that has gained a cult following in London since its opening, where you can tuck into braised pork with peanut powder in the classic bao buns, or the likes of fried chicken with hot sauce. Continuing the Asian theme, there are also Indian, Nepalese, Thai, Japanese and Cantonese offerings, serving everything from momo dumplings to chicken biryani.

One of the latest additions to the space is Strakers, which comes from social media chef Thomas Straker, where he serves up the infamous flatbreads from his restaurant in Notting Hill (if you know, you know). Think fresh flatbread cooked in a wood fired oven, then topped with options like burnt chilli mussel butter and chives, or confit duck leg with pickled onion.

Not sure what to choose? Don’t worry, you can find yourself a table and grab a little bit of everything to work through - and we don’t blame you if you do. Arcade Battersea is walk-in only, so also makes a great choice for a last minute catch up.
