Chinese, Thai, and Malaysian takeaway/delivery place on Lordship Lane in East Dulwich. It is near Dulwich Library in an area known as Dulwich Plough. They used to offer online ordering but as of late 2013 they don't seem to be on any of the usual online ordering services any more.

secretlondon ordered online on a weekday evening in September 2009. My order took the promised 45 minutes to arrive. I had two starters — siu mai dim sum (£3 for 6) and vegetarian mixed hors d'oeuvres (£6 for two people). The vegetarian hors d'ouevres were interesting, and included tofu and mock chicken. They only came with one spring roll, though, no good for those who like to share equally.

My main was chicken mee goreng (£4.50). This contained tofu as well as chicken and I cannot say whether it was authentic or not.

secretlondon's verdict: The food is generally more interesting than the standard Chinese takeaway selection. I think I'll go back to try some of their other dishes.
