Four stars? Are you kidding me? This is among the nastiest food I've ever eaten, in London or anywhere else. Okay, we showed up late on a Saturday afternoon, half five. But if they didn't have food left fit to eat, they should have said so. It was not fit to eat. The bakso - Javanese meatball soup - was a tasteless swill of hot water, rubbery flavourless meatballs and bits of vegetation. The Nasi Padang was hideous even though I finished it. No discernible coconut flavour, overspiced meat cooked to grim chewy leather. Horrible. And some awful sickly sweet concoction involving ice and sugar that I could not eat. This place trades on looking like authentic Malay/Indonesian streetfood. It would not last five seconds in the real world. It made me feel sick. Avoid it like plague. For that matter, on this evidence, avoid Time Out's recommendations like the plague.
