Tel: 44 207 299 7900's insider take:

Alan Yau—savior of Chinese food in London thanks to his no-frills Wagamama (now sold), his all-thrills Hakkasan, and lately Yauatcha (15-17 Broadwick Street, Soho, W1; 44-207-494-8888) has opened his second Busaba. Like the original branch at 106 Wardour Street, this has a sleek Christian Liaigre look, casual atmosphere, and no-reservations policy. Arrive early to avoid lines and tuck into Thai fast food: salads, soups, curries, stir-fries, and noodles galore eaten off communal tables. By some miracle, Yau keeps prices low and quality high.
