Me and Will have been here a couple of times and love the BBQ Beef and Qimchee. It has a lovely family fell and manages to combine cosines with stylishness. The staff are attentive and Knowledgeable and the Kitchen is supremely speedy and the only thing that leaves a little to be desired is the tiny toilet whose has had a hole cut in it to accommodate a sanitary bin.

Champor-Champor restaurant in Southwark, London SE1, offers a unique Asian dining experience. Located between London Bridge and Tower Bridge, on the South Bank of the River Thames, the Thai-Malay cuisine draws in both locals and visitors alike.

Champor Champor is a Malay expression which may loosely be translated as ‘mix and match’ – and this concept runs through the funky decor, the cuisine, the global wine list and the music. This is not a restaurant for purists but the mix of Thai and Malay cuisine at moderate prices makes it a great Asian restaurant in London.

My lovely boyfriend took me her for my Birthday last year. It was gorgeous. The ethnic style really appealed to me, as did the Asian fusion. The wine list is exceptional and on the food menu you will find something to suit all tastes, from really hot to mild. As you sit down you are immediately brought delicious little appetizers. we got a lovely freshly prepared bombay mix which was more akin to a sweet crunchy salad than the horrid dry packets you get in sainsbury’s and banana bread. Very interesting, and not in a bad way!

Starters:

  • Crispy soft shell crab; five spice, salt & pepper £9.95
  • Shredded roast duck and hoisin sauce with flat roti £8.50

Green papaya, Crispy tofu and pomegranate somtam; roasted cashew nuts (vegan) £6.95

I remember having these. the lamb was to die for (the chocolate worked perfectly). the beef was again delicious and very popular but i think i was fooled by the enticing smell of sizzling beef spices and onions. once it had cooled a bit i felt imagination was lacking and felt i could have found something similar in any Chinese in Chinatown. Not dissing Chinatown at all. i especially like their mini-markets and hanging Peking duck. you can just walk in to any restaurant and buy a whole duck. perfect for a hassle free dinner party. serve with a chow mien and pancakes with all the trimmings (spring onion, cucumber and hoisin).

  • Sizzling beef sirloin in a hot plate with sliced onion and; fresh green peppercorns and krachai (wild ginger) £19.95
  • Lamb shank braised in blue Sumatra coffee, red wine and dried red chili £17.95

I would recommend sticky rice with any of these.

These also came highly recomended.

  • Beef rendang (Malaysians’ favourite of beef cooked in coconut milk and herbs) £16.95
  • Spicy yellow turmeric young banana curry (veg) £12.50

The atmosphere was buzzing full of city workers eating a leisurely dinner before heading home. saying this is perfectly suited to a special occasion very happy to spend my birthday and or one year anniversary here.
