Stunning. Amazing. Wild. Fun. Eclectic.
This is an experience. You get a very interesting visual experience, exceptional food, devoted staff, and even the dishes (the dishes, not the food) are a sight to see. I was made to feel welcome and valued from the moment I walked in the door and into the multi-color interior. I had a nicely priced and iced (cold) Ashai beer as I settled into ordering my food. I ordered the tuna starter, the chicken salad and the Duck Breast Hanoi Style. My waiter casually suggested the xxx and made it sound like such a natural accompaniment that I took him up on the offer. Boy, was he right.
First came my tuna. Stunning to see, better to devour.
A word of caution: the Chef loves hot red chillies! You can pick them out, but don’t expect bland food here!
Then the salad and then my duck. This was served with Bok Choy and Jasmine Rice. Absolutely perfect!
I hope my pictures do this artful scene justice. Not only did it all look great – I left feeling well fed, well looked after and absolutely happy after a very bad day at work. This is a great place to get therapy.
I was fortunate enough to have booked a deal on the Top Table website. I had a great meal, an even better experience, and could fit a top meal into a business budget.
Rarely have I had such a dinning experience anywhere and this is one of the very best I have had in London in 30+ years.
If you do decide to experience Funky Asia for yourself – bring your camera. They are really proud of their décor and happy for you to snap away.
