Finally made it up to see what the fuss is about with this food hall. It is like being out in Asia with authentic vendors from all around, but with the British price tags. We wanted to try something from each stall, but that would be eating with our eyes again. The Korean wings were 👌

My friends dragged me to these far away lands in search of some awesome Asian food!

What we found were many vendors dishing out different foods and cuisines from all over Asia!

If only my tummy were a bottomless pit!

Here are some more pros for you.... Its clean, spacious and all the vendors accept card!

Great right?

The only reason it didn't get 5 stars is because there weren't enough places to purchase drinks or desserts... Also its actually very hard to find! We had to go through a parking lot for petes sake! Haha

Bang Bang Oriental is located around a 10 minute walk from Colindale station, but as you approach it, you absolutely cannot miss it and the huge building towers over the skyline. 


The top floor is full of Asian food kiosks and with over 30 stalls, there is plenty to choose from! I was eating at the Golden Dragon restaurant (located on the ground floor) that day, so I didn't get to try any of the food but there were tons of different options, including a vegetarian kiosk!


The Golden Dragon downstairs brings a little more of a fine dining experience to Bang Bang Oriental, but the prices are still pretty reasonable. The vegetarian set menu was just £17-ish per head and we received PLENTY of food!

What can I say about Bang Bang Oriental? It is a food-lover's paradise, and how food halls should be.


After parking in an underground car park they share with Morison's - screaming glamour - and heading up a fairly plain staircase, you step into a huge room full of all sorts of magical smells. Soy sauce, fish sauce, ginger, garlic, chilli - it was a welcome assault on the nose. 


The ultimate question - how do you decide what to have? After taking a quick lap round and devouring everything with our eyes, we divided and conquered. And, of course, over ordered. Standard. 


Hakka pork belly was dark, rich and so soft thanks to hours of slow cooking. An unassuming dish of rice, pork and preserved vegetables, but the flavour was so deep it was anything but simple. 


A trip to Malaysia next with Roti Canai - light and fluffy roti service with a creamy, delicious curry. If I could have dived into the bowl, I'm pretty sure I would have. This came with seafood noodles that were so dark they were almost black, packed with fish balls, prawns... you expected them to be salty with soy because of the colour but the balance of flavour achieved was perfect. 


Finally, chicken wings. Some of the biggest wings I've ever seen were coated in a sublimely light batter before being fried. A sharp, tangy, spicy dipping sauce cut right through the batter meaning you didn't run the risk of greasy chicken. Pair this with moist, perfectly cooked chicken and even though I was stuffed I made room. 


There were so many treats on offer I didn't get to try so mark my works, I will be back very soon.

Stumbled across this place a few weeks ago. It's reminiscent of a hawker market in the Far East, but far cleaner, with a London feel. It has such a great selection of oriental food stalls - Japanese, Korean, Chinese, Malay, Schezuan, Vietnamese, HK-street food, Thai - but to name a few. It has really really clean restrooms, and plenty of seating. The food is mostly freshly prepared, and the popular things sell out quickly (even on weekdays) so be warned! The average dish prices are between £5-10 which is pretty reasonable for the good-sized portions. I would recommend, and can't wait to go back again!

OMG.WTF.OMMFG!!! I am feel so lucky to live near this place! I knew that bang bang was opening as I used to go to it's predecessor Oriental City,which was a shopping centre with an oriental supermarket, an awesome retro arcade (which was state of the art when they opened it!) AND a small but a super wicked awesome food court of all the oriental food your heart could desire. It got shut down. I had a minutes silence. Gutted. BUT I never gave up faith. I never stopped hoping and ,by gum, they have opened Bang Bang Oriental- Mecca of all food courts!! 33 vendors. 33. There's fripping bubble tea. Dumplings. So many types of noodles. Those buns you like. Curry. Summer bloody rolls!!!!!! 


Ok,I need to calm down or I may not finish this review,I might just go a visit again. I am salivating as I type!.....


Here we go. Yes I was very excited about Bang Bang and rightly so. I visited the other week and was blown away by this fantastic food hall. It's Oriental City 2.0,without a doubt. It is in plain clothes Colindale but if you like Oriental food,it really is worth a visit. You can get foods from all countries: Korea,Malaysia,China,Japan, Thai Land even India! It's a no frills setting in a vast hall with bench seating,bright lights and really loud capital fm music tv.........aside from that,it's about getting some good and reasonably priced eats of an afternoon or eve. You don't really need fancy seating though,the food speaks for itself. You could be in dustbin and I bet you wouldn't notice! 


I went to a good few vendors and tried all sorts of bits,I think it's the best way to do it,so you don't feel like you missed out. But equally you can dive into a big bowl of Ramen or Laxa just the same : ) 


I had:


A Passion fruit bubble tea with tropical pearls from Cha Time-


Good bubble tea! I have had better but they are the only place that sells it at bang bang and it's not bad.


Cafe La Viet-


Yum yum yum yum! I had their summer rolls with prawns,which are big and really well made. They give a healthy side helping of peanut sauce too. I also had their spring rolls which were delicious. Crispy and light,just how I like them, All really fresh ingredients too.


XI Home-


Steamed buns,really good. I would especially recommend the mushroom bun. Hands down the best one. I also had the beef with spring onion,which was scrummy too.


One 68-


I had the prawn dim sum,which were heartily packed with really fresh prawns. Really good. The deep fried fish wontons were just super. Came with some sort of spring onion soy sauce,they were incredibly moreish. 


Thai Square:


Beef panang curry,which was the best panang curry I have ever had.


I am going back and none of you can stop me!
