Certainly, this city has us covered when it comes to discovering the best Pan-Asian food all in one city so here’s the list of the best Pan-Asian restaurants London has to offer.
Some spicy ramen with delicious pan-fried dim-sums and salmon sushi while watching k-drama is an ultimate delight. You guessed it right! I am a huge k-drama fan and an even bigger fan when it comes to the best Pan-Asian food London has to offer.
1. Rasa Sayang
Amidst the hustle-bustle of Chinatown as soon as I reached Rasa Sayang the long queue of people outside the restaurant got me even more excited about the food!
I started with their most popular starter Roti Canal which was the fluffy flatbread served with rich homemade coconut curry.
This was followed by their spring rolls which were a no-brainer along with a BBQ Platter consisting of Chicken Satay, Tiger Prawns as well as Chicken Wings which was the perfect blend of the flavours of coconut curry.
Furthermore, another dish that I would highly suggest would be the Nasi Lemak, a Malaysian national dish served with coconut rice, chicken curry, crispy anchovies, peanuts and achar.
All in all, if you are someone looking for a very filling meal then a combination of Malaysian and Singaporean cuisine then this place was one to keep on top of your list.

2. Rosa’s Thai Café
From Thailand via various Southeast Asian cities to open a permanent market stall in Brick Lane, London in 2007 to sprucing locations around London, Rosa’s Thai Café has come a long way.
As a matter of fact, it is all for good reason as their Pad Thai noodles with crushed peanuts to Crispy Prawns and Rosa’s Homemade Spring rolls are all lovely!
The cosy interior of the Soho branch adds to the warmth of the food while you’re going into a food coma trying Rosa’s Red Curry paired with Rosa’s Fried Rice, isn’t it the ultimate combination?!
I would highly recommend going to Rosa’s Thai Café if you haven’t already whether it is in between your hectic shopping spree on Oxford Street or even when you just want some nice Pan-Asian food for comfort then Rosa’s is your go-to place.

Busaba, a London high-street favourite, offers the greatest Thai cuisine.
Matchstick Chicken (crisp malt-marinated chicken winglets) with Sriracha Ho Fun noodles gave me a Sookjai or “happy heart” (wok-fried mushroom, red pepper, spinach, and flat rice noodles with spicy sweet chilli, soy, and ginger).
I would highly recommend trying their Red Jungle Curry along with Grilled Roti making it a hearty meal. The menu offers a bunch of delicious options which sometimes makes it hard to choose from.

4. Duck & Rice
We can not talk about the best Pan-Asian Restaurants in London and not mention London’s hot favourite Duck and Rice.
With the striking location along with the pair of the pub downstairs and luxurious, classy yet elegant dining room upstairs connected by a spiral staircase, Duck & Rice truly has the pizazz and so does its food menu.
The vibe of the restaurant is chic and edgy even when it is most certainly always busy. When it comes to the food menu, it is like where should I begin from?!
But let’s start with Pan-fried chicken gyoza, Crispy duck roll & Crispy prawn wanton the ultimate starter blend for me.
Black pepper mock chicken and Singapore fried noodles offer rich, delicious flavours.
I recently tried the Vegetable Yakisoba as well which I truly loved and instantly added to my favourites list.

5. Park Chinois
The red velvet lounge in Mayfair’s most luxurious Asian restaurant, and rightfully so. Club Chinois is a Parisian hideaway where you can enjoy acrobatics, cabaret, and shows.
Certainly, it is worth being included in the best Pan-Asian restaurants in London because of its wide range menu of authentic Asian cuisine.
You may choose from a number of delicious alternatives, including one of their most famous meals, Duck de Chine.
Some of my other favourites include Kung Pao Mock Chicken, Cashew Nuts and Hakka Paneer & Seasonal Pepper along with the Spring Roll Platter and Chef’s Selection of Fried Dim Sum.
Everything from the Chive Dumplings to the Winter Black Truffle Dumplings on the menu is worth the price.
The ambience of the restaurant is phenomenal along with wonderful soulful food.
