Mandalay Golden Myanmar in Kilburn certainly knows how to cook up a storm. Burmese food has as long and storied a history as the country itself, and it reflects the Asian fusion influences that have been brought to bear on the South East Asian country over the years. Indian, Chinese, Thai and British influences appear, and are applied to local tastes and cooked with local ingredients. Rangoon might be a long way from London, but at Mandalay Golden Myanmar on the Kilburn High Road in Kilburn – close to Brondesbury tube station – will transport you to this exotic spot in more way than one. Bookings are essential.
