When I get cravings for solid Malaysian and Singaporean cuisine, I go to C&R. It’s no fuss, flavoursome food that never disappoints. Oh, and it’s also cheap and cheerful. What more could you want? The Hainanese Chicken Rice is a favourite here and you can choose between breast meat or dark meat. The stir fry dishes all have great “wok” flavour and the Laksa and Nasi Lemak here is also solid. The bubble tea and other selection of Asian drinks here is also on point. Overall, for a quick, cheap and satisfying meal, this place is really a no-brainer.

Tip: do get in early as they can get quite busy. It’s not really a eat and chat type of place as the food comes fast and they do expect you to vacate the table as soon as you’re done for waiting customers.

Good For: cheap and cheerful, small groups, quick meal, casual dinner/ lunch.

I'm a regular at the C&R and IMO it definitely deserves more than three stars from TimeOut. The food is delish. It's cheap. What more can you wish for, especially for central London

Cheap, tucked away location, no need to book and hearty Malaysian food. What else can you ask for? I have been to Malaysia a few times in my life and I think C&R is the most authentic out of the restaurants Ive tried in the UK :) I love the char kway teow (sorry I dont know the spelling) and its so tasty and not as oily as some places are. The staff are very practical so dont expect silver service but all in all its a great place for a quick plate of rice or noodle. My only complaint is I took AGES trying to work out what C&R stood for..... Cafe and Restaurant. You cannot make it up! Still 5 stars though, reminds me of my auntie's cooking :D 


In the 10 minutes between the place opens and waiting for my friends to arrive, we were given the last table. Wasn't expecting this to be so popular. You get quick and friendly service, and massive servings for a low price. The food was good, no wonder it's always packed out! Make sure you're hungry, it takes dedication to finish a whole dish.
