Located on Sloane Avenue, Chelsea, this splendid Malaysian-influenced restaurant does indeed serve happy meals, but the smiles come from satisfaction at good food, well-cooked and served in an extremely elegant setting.
Wrapped in teak and bound in leather, the dining area of Awana is as plush as you can imagine, attracting a wide cross section of society who come to enjoy the decadence, the laid-back ambience, the warmth and the tangible calmness of the waiting staff and diners.
Perhaps the finest Malaysian restaurant in London, Awana aims to awaken the senses and deliver the best Malaysian cuisine to old-school London, serving rich, aromatic dishes that have been cooked to perfection and draw on Malaysia's rich culinary history. The Satay Bar specialises in typical Malaysian street dining, with rapid service, high bar stools and an assortment of delicious skewered chickens, scallops and vegetables, as well as fresh roti, murtabak bread and lovely dessert breads.
For main meals - whether lunch or dinner - the Awana menu is simply bursting with flavour. Head chef Lee Chin Soon has a wealth of experience, and ensures that all dishes are prepared with only the freshest meats, vegetables and spices. There are incredible a la carte options to enjoy, while the set Awana menus take you on a journey through Malaysia's rich culinary heritage, where one can sample tiger prawn and crab skewers, rojak buah, baked lamb ribs, prawn chicken wonton soup, beef and coconut curry, tofu with shitake mushrooms, lemongrass sorbets and beautifully selected wines and spirits.
