The place is easy to get to, the decor quirky and great fun, and the food is outstanding - inventive dishes drawing on the cuisines of Malaya, Thailand and Indonesia. Always a good range. Portions are generous. Service is friendly and efficient.

Relaxed feel, unusual decor, moderate noise until family with baby arrived. Service was friendly and helpful about altering menu according to wheat intolerance. I had beef rendang and though very tasty was a bit disappointed as there was no vegetables at all and some of the beef was really firm. The vegan green curry was good, vegetables cooked just right, not too firm or too soft. Thai and Malay food are my amongst my favourite and I'd honestly go somewhere else than here again as it was quite expensive.

A great little find! No sign of the typical furnishings that Thai restaurants tend to have, instead some beautiful and unique pieces. Simple tables and chairs added to the charm. The service was very friendly. We shared a number of starters and side dishes which were all delicious. Not cheap but worth it.

A nice place to eat. Not so good value for money. £3.70 for two spoons of rice. I cant say I'll be back!

I have been here twice now and whilst the food is lovely, it is very expensive for what it is. There are by far better places for much less money. The service was very slow - took 20 minutes to be asked if we would like a drink on arrival. Food was lovely as always but eye wateringly expensive - 1 starter, 2 mains, 1 rice, a glass of wine and a beer for £95 is a lot!

Perhaps you should fix that cooler. It was too hot for a summer day and we were so sweaty.
The food and the hospitality was perfect. Enjoyed a lot.

Pretty expensive for what we had. Starters were Luke warm, and my vegan main was particularly uninspiring. A pity as we had high hopes of this places having read the reviews. Had planned to visit again with friends but going elsewhere now.

I booked because of the reviews on Open Table and thought it might struggle to live up to the hype - it didn't! Six of us enjoyed a variety of starters and mains. The last time I had beef rendang this good was in Singapore. Highly recommend.

Good food, good ambiance but it's too bad the service was not good. No smile, grumpy face. I booked the place two weeks before and they've reserved our table closed to the toilet, while the rest of the table was still empty. Finally we managed to move to another table. It would be appreciated if the people who work there smiled more and welcome more.

Not your typical Thai. Food was interesting and good. Read the menu carefully and ask questions if in doubt.
If you want a beer they are incredibly small and expensive.

Overall we enjoyed.

This was our first visit as it was our anniversary. When we arrived we were seated very quickly and the staff were very courteous and efficient. Once ordered the food arrived hot and delicious, the staff were ever vigilant without being overbearing and as soon as we had finished, the plates were removed and our Mains were delivered. The ambiance of the restaurant was great - there were quite a few people for a Saturday night, but not so that it got rowdy. I would definitely recommend the Massaman Chicken - it was cooked to perfection and the sauce was lovely and thick, the variety of wines also suited all pockets. I would definitely recommend Champor Champor, but ensure you book ahead as it can get quite busy.

Tucked away and not one you’d find unless you went looking for it, but food was excellent! Absolutely everything was delicious from the complimentary starter to the 3 starters we ordered to share and 3 mains. The halloumi side, prawn starter and beef rendang were our favourites!
And very good value for money too! I’d definitely go back!

It’s always great for a restaurant to make an impression on friends who have not been before. Although I had visited many times, we were sat downstairs in a room which I didn’t know existed! This cosy room had two tables and was decorated like a garden area with a swing. It took a while for the food menu to arrive but as usual, the food in both presentation and taste impressed. My learned friends commented on the quality of the wine list and were happy with the range which went well with the food. Service was prompt but was non existent at the end. We had to go upstairs to ask for the bill which we also duly paid upstairs as there was no reception downstairs. Not a big deal and it was in the way out. Overall, this is my usual place to introduce friends to a little hidden corner of London with consistent quality of food.

I have been to champor champor a few times and have always enjoyed the food. However I am vegan these days and order the vegetarian dishes which were not great. The fried okra was terrible and the banana curry was just ok. My friend ordered a chicken dish which was delicious according to her.

Excellent service, very helpful and friendly. Food was delicious, especially the lamb shank massuman curry. The prawn dishes coming out the kitchen looked great so will try that out next time. Complimentary toasted banana bread was a nice touch. Will definitely return.
