The Laksa Kitchen is back! Following Chef Lim's food tour of Penang this summer we have now returned to Kentish Town for an 8 week residency bringing back our signature Curry Laksa, Sarawak Laksa as well as some new Penang inspired hawker dishes, such as Duck Egg Char Kway Teow.


Our Story:

The search for the perfect Laksa started at the beginning of the year with the idea to travel across Malaysia and bring back the perfect Laksa to London. So in May we took a trip from Kuala Lumpur to Borneo via Penang to hunt for what makes the perfect Laksa. Following our popular first residency and Chef Lim's time in Penang, we have now returned with a new menu.


Our Menu:

Our concise Malaysian menu is made up of four Small Plates, four varieties of Laksa (including the Sarawak Laksa) as well Duck Egg Char Kway Teow and two desert options. We will also be serving Malay drinks, Malay-inspired cocktails, craft beer and wine.


Choose any starter, main, dessert and glass of wine, beer or soft drink for £21.50

Highly recommended tasty curry mee and rendition of Sarawak laksa, which I have yet to see elsewhere in London. Busy evening with a lively atmosphere and decent service and good value considering the price.

Food was OK but not surprising, we expected more flavour. The highlight of the evening was the dessert and the most horrible thing (in the world), the toilets. Just unacceptable, it ruined our experience and left us with an upset stomach and worry about everything else in those premises. I guess that has to be only with the venue but sorry, was definitely part of our experience.

Very jolly evening with Laksa Kitchen in Kentish Town

We enjoyed all the four small plates, particularly the shrimp fritters and the Sarawak Laksa was delicious and unusual. Our Singapore born friend spoke highly of the food .

The staff were efficient and friendly and the hostess from Malaysia was charming. I t was a lively atmosphere and I like the idea of pop ups.

I came for the food - not for the facilities downstairs- but they were rather dank though clean.

My boyfriend and I both had really good laksas - I went with the seafood curry laksa and his was sarawak laksa. The chili that was served with the sarawak laksa was really good! We had prawn fritters and pork belly for starters, and both desserts. They're all lovely.
