Lan Zhou La Mian Noodle Bar
FT restaurant critic Nicholas Lander selected this casual, inexpensive eatery as a "Top Restaurant 2013". "Liangming Qiu is the chef at the Lan Zhou La Mian Noodle Bar by Leicester Square Tube station, where bowls of steaming noodles with numerous toppings cost no more than £7.50. The seating is cramped, the service invariably swift and Qiu is undoubtedly the most diffident chef I have ever interviewed." Discover other FT top foodie restaurants for 2013 in the attached review.
