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."
Fabulous and authentic tasting Laksa. Have been several times and the quality of food is brilliant
Lovely spice but a bit pricey for what you get.
We love it here sooo much. Thanks guys. 🙏🙏🙏
I love this restaurant, first went when it was a pop up in Turnpike lane close to where I live. It’s my favourite place to eat and I come often. The home made sauces to take home are amazing too.
Great food, excellent service! The fried chicken, gado-gado and vegetable fritters were amazing. Would happily go again.
A lovely evening!
The 12.5% service added to the bill is excesive and spoilt the evening
Mango n coconut pudding was good but Ice kacang for dessert would have made it perfect.
Always a delight
My favourite London restaurant at the moment, as soon as you walk in you are greeted with smiles and the most amazing aromas. Things just get better from there!
Your staff are always SO helpful and lovely - and it's miraculous how you can squash so many hungry people into the space and it never feels rushed, pressured, or hectic. Delicious noodles too!
Really nice food and friendly service (although there was a small mistake with the order). I really felt the booking system was overkill - both credit card and web confirmation required. And although the service was quick, a 2 hour slot seems a bit more reasonable than 90 mins. I would have liked a couple more food options on the menu.
Food was great but a bit sweet for my taste and a tiny bit too expensive for what it was
I order spicy food in other restaurants and found the laksa too spicy to finish. I think it would be good to have a mild version. The portions of laksa were also too big in my opinion. It would have been nice to have more fresh herbs on top of the status, such as more coriander on the gado gado. It was very noisy in the restaurant but that’s just the nature of lots of people in a small space! The staff were very friendly and helpful. The cost for cancelling a reservation at £10/head is ridiculous. Two members of our party of five were very unwell and didn’t eat a thing but still came so that we didn’t have to pay the reservation cost. Given how many walk ins there are it seems unnecessary for this to be done.
Great laksa but not sure about the nasi lemak.
Great food and great vegan options loved it
Fried chicken was out of this world. Thanks
This place is great for vegans. I managed to enjoy a vegan starter, main and dessert. All of which were so jam packed full of flavour that it made my heart, and belly, sing! They really respect vegans here and it really shows in the well thought out menu. Furthmore, it's a welcome change to be able to eat somewhere that has tasty options for both vegans and meat eaters so, thankfully, none of the usual awkwardness. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful too. For example, the broth comes in Medium and Hot and to be sure that I could handle the Medium, they kindly provided me with a little sample to try.
Lovely, buzzing laksa bar with amazing food! Totally understand why this is a hit. If you love chicken, noodles, peanut and soup-based deliciousness you are made! Thanks Mandy, Krishna and team for the great hospitality.
Authentic flavours Love the addition of specials which wasn't there last time I visited Staff were so friendly & helpful
Great flavour as always. Would like to see a slight increase in portion size for rice dishes. Laksa is perfection though.
Amazing Laksa bar. Good food, great service, would highly recommend to visit.
Menu is not 100% clear on what is vegetarian or not. However, the staff quickly fixed the issue with minimal fuss and it was delicious.
