It can often be difficult to decide between Asian cuisines. You’re hankering for Thai; but your partner is set on Japanese. Chinese is a safe bet, but you really want some Malaysian flavours. Pak Choi must know about this problem, because their smart-casual restaurant on Loughton High Road accounts for different cravings. Pak Choi is a pan-Asian eatery where you can pick and choose between a staggering spread of delicious dishes. Start off with some Thai fish cakes, dabble in an authentic Malaysian curry, treat yourself to some crispy Chinese aromatic duck, try out some sizzling Szechuan beef or sample a real Singapore chow mein. You don’t have to make drastic decisions at Pak Choi – it’s all good, and it’s all here. Given the diversity, Pak Choi is perfect for group events in Loughton, but it’s wise to book well ahead of time.
Lovely meal. We chose the Emporium menu so could choose and eat anything. Starter portion sizes of each choice are now a lot smaller than previous, so we ended ordering more. Restaurant was smart and clean looking but very quiet for a Saturday night which was a shame. There didnt seem to be enough waitresses around, so we werent rushed and did relax. Shame people dont try this more as the competitor's food has dropped in standard and the place needs a refub badly.
The food was excellent - fresh and well prepared. The cost of the buffet has shot up and we had 3 children aged 12 and under but were charged adult prices for them. Also drinks are really expensive too. If they just reduced their prices to make them more affordable we would visit more frequently.
