Boasting rave reviews from Time Out, Champor-Champor offers timeless Asian cuisine, specialising in Thai-Malay dishes. Eccentric and colourful décor gives the dining room endless character, and the wine list has its own individual appeal.

The Champor-Champor menu reflects a mix and match style, featuring a range from banana curry to Malay-style sirloin steak. The Malaysian favourite of beef rendang proves popular, with beef cooked in coconut milk and a blend of herbs. The braised shitake mushrooms with seaweed, light soy and crunchy toasted pine nuts is a tempting vegan option. For dessert at Champor-Champor restaurant a creative green tea and pistachio parfait is almost irresistible.

Brightly coloured walls with clashing wallpapers and colours complement the mismatched feel of the dining room. A spectacular array of tribal masks hangs from one wall, while a range of eclectic lightshades hangs overhead at Champor-Champor in London Bridge. A wine list offers an assortment of deep reds and crisp whites as well as a Japanese plum wine.

Less than 10 minutes from London Bridge and only a 5-minute walk from London Bridge Tube Station, Champor-Champor in London is great for a taste of something different.

    Excellent welcome, staff very friendly and helpful especial with menu choice.
    Welcome bread was most enjoyable.
    Didn't have enough room for pudding but menu looked good.

    Slightly shabby, cramped restaurant serving a delicately spiced menu of overpriced dishes. Only in central London would this be seen as a virtue and branded 'quirky'. Service is brisk and the food arrived quickly - no doubt to ensure maximum expenditure before turning the table at 2hr intervals. We skipped starters and were served with the much mentioned compliementary banana bread amuse bouche plus a chicken bite in a spoon. So far, so 'quirky'.

    The mains appear interesting ...until you realise the exact same green curry with butternut squash and asparagus cunningly appears in four different protein guises: mushroom, tofu, chicken, fish, each priced at a hefty £17-£21. How convenient for the kitchen. Little wonder the dishes appeared as swiftly as a production line conveyor belt. We opted for the chicken curry and the beef rendang with a side of grilled halloumi plus rice and roti. The chicken was pleasant, although bland and lacking in any chilli heat. It tasted rather like a thai chicken korma. The beef was also delicate but more flavoursome, the halloumi side kind of blah. The bill (with one solitary glass of wine) for this modest feast came to £60. The waitress dropped her clipboard on my head midway through dinner. Our table was sited next to the till and there clearly isn't room to swing a cat in this dimlit den of eastern deception. Halve the bill and I'd say Champor is worth a try, but high end prices delivering this level of cooking, service, comfort and ambience? I'm sorry but the Emperor is definitely not wearing any clothes.

    Delicious food nice Service, but only one vegan starter and main? That means I won't go again Cos I don't want to eat the same dish. Wasn't sure why the veg curries weren't vegan as they usually are.

    Food was great maybe portions could be bigger and have more selections of food. The complimentary banana bread was excellently made. Surprise how quickly they served people.

    The dishes very tasty and the quality of service matched this. Less good was the lack of space. Three of us were sat at a table that would have just adequate for two. Once wine, water, main courses and side orders were on the table we had to be careful that plates, glasses etc were not knocked over. We also had a two hour dining slot, which meant that we ended up having to gulp down our drinks to leave by the required time. So, rather mixed overall. If there is a two hour table slot in the future, I won't bother. We spent enough money here ( £153 for three ) so I was a rad aggrieved that we had to leave when we did. The food is excellent but the space and time issues took away a reasonable part of the overall enjoyment.

    Top notch.

    The food came suspiciously quickly after ordering: literally within 60 seconds of us placing our order the mains arrived, and they were only lukewarm. This means they must have been pre-prepared before we even arrived. The whole experience felt rushed: we were presented with the bill without asking and literally asked to leave whilst we were finishing our wine.
