slurpSlurp is located on Streatham High Road in-between Streatham Hill Station and the Odeon Cinema. Slurp is a fully licensed 'eatery' that opened in 2003 and serves of a good selection of Japanese, Thai and Chinese cuisine.

Atmosphere

On the outside, Slurp's silver coloured exterior stands out on the high street while the windows seemed to be tinted, which cleverly helps to protect the privacy of those inside. A nice touch.

Inside, Slurp is split into two halves, with a choice of non-smoking near the entrance and smoking near the bar. The venue is well lit and has ample seating. The decor is minimal with tables and benches, similar to what you might expect from a noodle bar such as Wagamama. What struck me was the vibrant use of colours throughout the venue and its ample artwork on display. 

Upon further discussion I found out that Slurp actively helps promote local artists. As well as being active in this years Yellow Bowl Festival, Slurp is a great venue to view local artists work. Apparently, a few artists who have displayed their work, have had their paintings purchased. Even though the restaurant does not benefit financially, it certainly is a treat for its customers, depending on your taste.

Service

We had pre-booked out table and when we arrived we were warmly received and quickly seated. This independent restaurant has a very friendly and relaxed service, and is certainly not rushed. 

Food / Drink / Menu

Slurp is fully licensed and caters for both lunch and dinner. They currently have a lunchtime deal where you can can choose a drink and any dish for £5.45 from a choice of over 38 dishes.

Slurp is different from other noodle bars in that it serves a clear choice of either Thai, Japanese or Chinese dishes. This includes Beef, Chicken, Fish and Vegetarian dishes. 

We ordered the following:

Starter: (Good portions)

Thai Fish Cakes - £4.00
Deep fried fish patties containing cod, squid, green beans and lime leaves served with a sweet chilli sauce.

Ebi Catsu - £4.90
Freshly cooked Butterfly Prawn's fried in a Bread-crumb's served with a sour chilli sauce.

Main:

Ebi Chilli Men - £7.30
Sreamed noodles served with a generous serving of King Prawns, carrots and mushrooms, topped with a home made chilli sauce. 

Chilli Beef Ramen - £7.30
Char-grilled steak served with seasonal greens, spring onions and bean-sprouts served with noodles in a chilli chicken stock.

Drinks

Slurp has a well stocked bar full of spirits, beers, soft drinks, fresh juices, Japanese rice wine and sake. We ordered:

Diet Coke - £1.20
Lemonade - £1.20 
Sappora (650ml) - £4.00

Summary

Slurp is an impressive venue that offers excellent value for money 7 days a week. It is the first time that I have seen a clear choice of either Thai, Japanese and Chinese cuisine on the menu. The menu is also well designed and this makes it easy to pick and choose your dish. 

Also of note is the stylish decor and its support for local artists. All these factors help to make eating at Slurp an unique experience. Slurp also cater for takeaways. Recommended.
