A no-frills diner dishing up Chinese and Malay cuisine from both an 'authentic' menu and separate options for Western palates.

Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2017 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

Replacing the long-stading Asia Style in 2015, Asiama has many of the hallmarks of the former incumbent – basic décor that could be from a 1970s’ work canteen and an extensive Malaysian-Chinese menu (do make sure you ask for the ‘authentic’ one as well, it won’t necessarily be proffered). One big difference is the quality of the cooking. Asia Style had lost its lustre and punchy flavours in recent years, yet Asiama has certainly improved the food, while prices, though not cheap cheap, offer decent value given quality and size. Staff will recommend the curry laksa with good reason as the family-size bowl that appears, with a choice of noodles sitting in a bright, fresh, flavoursome broth, is a real winner. Elsewhere stir-fry mangetout and squid is deftly done, pork dim sum are enjoyable and Malaysian style beef curry is a nicely spiced, satisfying dish.
