Just a few quick steps from High Barnet tube: come and experience finest Malaysian food at Emchai. The friendly restaurant on High Street in Barnet will make you feel welcome at all times and spoil you with an embarrassment of riches, food wise. And Emchai is deeply loved by the local crowd: Many find Emchai to offer the best Chinese and Malay food in the area. Try their great starters and special weekend deals, indulge in some expertly prepared prawns, stay for the tender beef, and enjoy a wonderful experience right in the heart of Barnet.
In the 15 years we've lived in High Barnet, many family celebrations and meals out with friends have happened here. It's always a fantastic experience! We've NEVER had a bad meal here and the restaurant is nicer than any we've tried in Soho's "Chinatown".
This is one of my favourite places to dine out: despite shy exterior, the service is always great, they even remember you after the first time you visit, so it feels pleasant to be recognised. My friends and I have different tastes but we can all find something delightful each time we visit.

We cannot recommend Emchai highly enough. The friendly restaurant is an absolute favourite among locals in Barnet and also warrants a drive to High Street to see for yourself. The dark and stylish interior corresponds perfectly with the overall atmosphere of an authentic eatery dedicated to Malaysian and Chinese cuisine. Try Singapore Laksa noodles, tofu with chilli and salt, pork ribs with assorted spices. Go for wonderful soft shell crab and black bean soup, sweet and sour chicken and mixed seafood. It’s as close as you can get to the real thing at the other end of the world.
