Elegant yet casual Malaysian fine dining
Where is it?
Located past The Long Bar on the ground floor of the Sanderson Hotel, Suka is not far from Goodge Street tube station, and a short walk from much of Bloomsbury or Oxford Street.
What's it like?
The ethos is modern Malaysian food prepared with "European sensibility". This means French cooking practices for the most part, with such temptations as varied as pork belly and lobster wontons with miso soup. Some of the creations are simple home-style Asian cooking, others are conceptual and complicated to execute (so be prepared to wait for dinner over a cocktail if you go for some of the more expensive dishes). It might be controversial to say so, but let's face it - Suka is more about being seen somewhere stylish than it is about the food, so you probably shouldn't be expecting to be blown away culinarily in all honesty. Be impressed by the fabulous crowd and gorgeous India Mahdavi-designed interior instead.
Why does Johnny Ikon love it?
The Sanderson Hotel is a package for me - cocktails at The Long Bar, dinner at Suka, then drinks with hotel residents at the Purple Bar. Suka is part of that package, not so much for the food but for glamour, style and good company.
