A taste of the Ori­ent

Where London - - Dining -

You might not think of a depart­ment store as the place to ex­pe­ri­ence pan-Asian cui­sine, but nes­tled in Deben­hams on Ox­ford Street is the con­tem­po­rary restau­rant Chi Kitchen (p. 69), which is rais­ing the bar with its se­ri­ously stylish and de­li­cious food. Be­gin with a glass of bub­bly from the Cham­pagne bar be­fore feast­ing on dishes in­flu­enced by Thai, Chi­nese, Malaysian, Ja­panese, Viet­namese and Korean cui­sine. If you’re look­ing to im­press, or­der the sashimi set to start and watch as your plate is cloaked in a cloud of dry ice. If you want to share, try the pop­corn shrimp, roasted Wagyu beef puffs and dragon prawn tem­pura, or dive straight into stir-fried mains of char keow teow (flat Malaysian noo­dles) or rice ver­mi­celli topped with veg­eta­bles and your choice of meat or seafood.
