A modern pan-Asian small plates restaurant in Soho.

When judging a restaurant by its menu, there are a few general truths. Like: the greater the number of cuisine types, the lower the quality of the cooking. And: novelty ingredients are rarely a good sign. Neither, for that matter, is labelling small plates, if they don’t come from Spain, as ‘tapas’. But every so often, a place comes along that stuffs the rule book in the shredder. And that place is Gamma Gamma.

Not only does this Soho spot serve what it calls ‘pan-Asian tapas’ (shudder), it has also put a few safari animals on the menu, like they got lost on the way to Lidl and ended up at the zoo. But it turns out, the chefs here can really cook.

There was a small plate of zebra tataki – served on a striped plate, no less – the rare meat cut into wide, pink-middled bands. If frogs taste like chicken, then zebra tastes like beef. But it had also been prettily arranged with quarters of perfectly judged, soft-centred egg, plus alternate blobs of sriracha jelly and wasabi mayo, giving it the tang and piquancy of a terrific steak tartare. Equally good were strips of well-sauced Filipino-style kangaroo (the meat, again, strangely bovine), with a fried-egg-topped mound of rice.

As it happens, the more prosaic dishes shone brightest of all. Like a fiery and nicely sour Sri Lankan fish curry, fat with juniper and coriander seeds, and a delicate yuzu-and-soy-laced parcel of salmon sashimi, avocado and cucumber. Sure, the setting is a tad Soho-by-numbers (wood floors, exposed bricks, girders) and the crowd a bit touristy. But staff are a delight. And so, in fact, is the food.

Modern Pan-Asian tapas in the heart of Soho.

The ingredients are all responsibly sourced too, with many gluten and dairy free options.

Mad inventors, our chefs spend their time dreaming up menus that weave in and out of cultures, creating true culinary fusion, supported by a cast of food-and-drink-loving waiting and bar staff will help you navigate their creations.

Creeping in from the corner of Greek street Soho, you’ll find you’re greeted by artwork that wraps around the walls, ensnaring and preparing you for food and drink that touches all the senses…

If you fancy some Indo-Asian tapas then this is the place for you to try!.

We ordered a selection of items from the menu but the Kangaroo steak by far was one of the best dishes there.

The prawn ceviche and amuse bouche (octopus and pineapple) transported my husband and I back to flavours we had in Thailand and Indonesia 2 years ago. It’s funny how food can do that.

The jungle curry could have had chunkier pieces of ostrich in it and flavours of the meat were lost in the mince.

The only bit of criticism I’d have is that it was a little dark inside, making it difficult to read the menu, see the individual ingredients on our plates and to take pictures (I’m a sucker for instagrammable food).

The staff were incredible and the atmosphere took us away from the hustle and bustle of Soho.
