Pushing a decade old, this mod pan-Asian eatery still has what it takes to attract the in-crowd. See-and-be-seen opportunities abound at the buzzing bar, and the minimalist black-on-white-on-dark-wood dining room is packed with hipsters and the occasional celeb. The Chinese/Japanese/Thai-inspired menu is still inventive after all these years, and the service remains crisp and professional.
Trendsetters and beautiful people still flock, as do special occasion couples.
WHAT WE WOULD WEAR
It’s casual, but in a trendy/fashionable way–go for designer jeans or a skirt, boots, and a "wow" top.
GO HERE WITH
A date; friends
WHY WE LIKE IT
Great fun for a girls night out; the ambiance is with-it, and the food is reliably tasty. If you want, plates can be shared, so it's an ideal spot to round up a spirited group and sample as many dishes as you can.
WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE
The bar can get crowded. Sometimes we just get tired of the pan-Asian fusiony scene, and this one is pretty textbook.
GOOD TO KNOW
There’s a couple of tables outside, and if you can snag one, they make a good spot for people-watching in the heart of Notting Hill, especially at lunch. We pick E&O over Eight Over Eight any day–for food, location, and service.
