Wok U Like, near the railway station/theatre, consistently the best in the area.
Still haven't found this, but have now looked it up on the internets - reckon the day I went looking for it I stopped about 20 meters short of it :)

Went looking for Wok U Like again, forgot what number it was and didn't find it again :facepalm:

From this picture it looks like the place right by the train station/theatre, but I think it had a different name, definitely had a sign saying 'under nre management' and was completely shut.

R.I.P.
I think you might be right, as I whizzed past on the bus earlier and thought I saw a new place where Wok U Like is/was. I'll check again tomorrow, but it'll be a real shame if it has gone.

No.
Great North Wood pub? (i've not eaten in there but it is meant to be good) Also near the train station in case either of you need a swift exit! :D

Just got sent this from a friend:
I've just been to a new vegan pop up at the Portico gallery opened by a young local , Eddie Mangoman. The prices are really ( refreshingly!) reasonable,( £2.50 for porridge! ) which i commented on, they want to keep it affordable for the community.I have no connection to it, it's just nice to see a local lad getting something positive off the ground, so I will be letting people know about it!

Still changing Indian and Chinese delivery places every few months, so if anyone has a new or confirmed favourite let's hear it.

Gurkha Cottage in Gypsy Hill currently favourite for Indian/Nepalese.

Eastern Cuisine on Gipsy Hill current favourite for curry. New May Flower (which is in West Dulwich I think) is pretty reliable for Chinese.

Gave up on Eastern Cuisine. They're a bit more expensive and were great for a good couple of years, but then we had three badly cooked meals in a row about a year ago so it wasn't worth paying extra. Maybe the good chef came back :D

Haven't heard of New May Flower, cheers, will give them a go.

I gave up on Ghurka Cottage for the same reason :D Maybe I should give them another go.

New May Flower isn’t amazing but they’re generally consistently decent on the classics.

We used Eastern Cuisine on Friday. Mostly good but my fish curry came in a bland grey sauce that could well have been wallpaper paste. I've got some leftover but I'm going to fish the fish out of it (eh?) and find something else to have with rice and dal.
