About Sambal Shiok Laksa Bar
We are a specialist laksa noodle bar in London in 2018, serving arguably the best laksa in London.
We offer our guests a unique experience with customisable laksa - from spice level to choice of toppings, even a vegan option! Alongside our signature laksa, we serve a complementary range of snacks, rice plates, drinks, and sometimes, desserts.
Mandy Yin is one of the few Malaysian chef/owners in the UK, having founded Sambal Shiok in London in 2013. She is a Malaysian-born Chinese of Peranakan Nyonya heritage. "I take inspiration from everything I ate in my childhood growing up in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia. Then I mix it up and put a new slant on it."
Lovely atmosphere; lovely Malaysian food.
First time here and had an amazing evening for my birthday. Staff are super friendly and efficient and the food was amazing.
Great food, and really friendly service.
Very disappointed with the who;e eating expierence , What I thought was going to be authentic taste from Malaysia turned to be just bad. Would never recomend the this place to anyone. In actual fact I was disappionted so much I have started to talk on how bad my expiennce was.
Excellent service and great food!
Great food and service
Couldn’t recommend this restaurant enough. Can’t wait to go back.
Best assam laksa I have ever eaten and I grew up in Malaysia! Excellent service and sambal was very authentic. And, here they really do make it Southeast Asian level spicy.
I thought the food was great but I have to admit I was pretty shocked at the drinks prices. Pale fire £6.60 is a bit of a sting. Excellent service our waiter was super knowledgeable and atmosphere lively and fun.
Had a great time. Delicious food and service was great
Very nice food but a tad pricey. Also the whole process felt a bit rushed. My colleagues and I made a reservation for 8 of us. We were asked to pre-order which we couldn't do and if one of us couldn't make it we would have to pay £10. It also just felt like they wanted to get us out of there. Not a very relaxing dining experience.
We were expecting a fun meal out but the food exceeded our expectations! We really enjoyed the heat and intensity of flavours in the classic Chicken Laksa and the subtlety of the Assam Laksa with its exciting combination of mackerel, pineapple, cucumber and mint. Excellent value for money too! We were particularly delighted to meet and chat with Mandy Yin, who is clearly not only a talented chef but also passionate about her restaurant and deserves every success in her venture. We hope she will open a branch in South London too!
Definitely one of my favourite places to eat in London. Love the food, excellent service and vibrant and welcoming atmosphere, a definite must try. Mandy and her team are doing a fantastic job.
Lovely food, really enjoyed!
There was actually a problem with our order but once they picked up on it staff was quick to react and make us feel extra welcome 🙏
Amazingly tasty spicy laksa. Highly recommend
Fantastic food at this little eatery, definitely recommend.
Place is a little packed and noisy because of all the people. But the food is really good and overall had a pleasant experience.
What an incredible find!
Really delicious and filling. Good portion size. Little restaurant so you are close to your neighbours but cosy on a cold evening.
Everything I thought it would be
Starter of fried Chicken was decent however the Laksa main was just too spicy. Waiter offered us a choice of medium or hot with regards to spice level. Definitely can handle spice but chose the safe option of medium which in itself was not too safe it seemed. Plenty of other people in the restaurant appeared to be struggling. Not sure if our experience was a one-off or is the norm. Slightly disappointed with the overall experience.
I had the pleasure of enjoying Sambal Shiok during Mandy's residency/pop-up on Green Lanes. Great to see the permanent abode thriving.
