"Laxsa Soho, is a Malaysian Restaurant in London. Located in the heart of the West End, it is the place to experience true Malaysian food in London. Our culinary team hails from Kebun Teh, Johor. They have sourced traditional recipes and cooking methods to bring the true authentic taste of Malaysia to London. Our signature dish is our Laksa, arguably the best Laksa in London. Other iconic menu dishes include our Nasi Lemak, Nasi Goreng, Mee Goreng, and Hainese Chicken! The venue is split over two floors. The design of the venue is a contemporary representation of Kebun Teh, in Malaysia. The train-theme of the restaurant is a nostalgic reminder of the railway market where the Chefs would source their fresh ingredients in Kebun Teh. The venue is adorned with Malaysian antiques which set the tone for a truly authentic taste of Malaysia. The London Malaysian scene is starting to ignite. At Laxsa Soho, we provide a truly authentic Malaysian menu in a contemporary venue."

Chaotic service, processed and uninspired food. Dated decoration!

We had upstairs to ourselves as a party of 6 - downstairs where we were placed first was far too snug and cramped so glad they offered to move us upstairs - just note it's a spiral staircase so not great for accessibility but fine for us. A little chilly by the windows (sash windows/old windows for the building so probably a function of that) despite the airconditioning unit being set on warmth - annoying squeaking sound the whole time. This place has been open for a month I think so just starting out. Food - not too bad - calamari is delicious, papaya salad has a kick, fried chicken was good, gado gado not bad, roti canai curry was on the salty side and quite thick and grainy. Assam laksa was tasty, traditional laksa was OK but more of a curry mee, char kway teow is more like the KL variety using dark soya sauce and needed to be a bit more fragrant/burnt to get the authentic taste, hainanese chicken rice was served with plain steamed rice which defeats the whole objective - miscommunication with the staff where they asked if we wanted the roast/fried chicken but we said, no the steamed one (as per normal for proper hainanese chicken rice) and instead we got plain rice. Couldn't be bothered to correct it by that point. Nasi lemak was alright but i think the same curry for the roti was used for this (or very similar), wat tan hor was not too bad actually, and the water spinach with belacan was good. Cocktails were good. Overall not a bad meal. No dessert available though :( I might go back to try a few other items another time.
