A Pan-Asian noodle chain, there are 60 branches across the country. with the main London branch situated on Oxford St, near Tottenham Court Rad tube station. (A quick FYI this Chopstix has recently undergone a major refurb and now boasts some pretty cool artwork.)
The menu is a mix of noodles, chicken, beef and prawns with fresh vegetables and sauces. Customers order boxes of food. A small box is just £6 and includes a base and one topping. Add on a drink and a side for just £1.95 and we’re talking well below a tenner.
