Little Tiger (小虎面)

Posted by: Wen Ching In: Chinese Food|United Kingdom

One day while shopping in town, we came across Little Tiger, which was previously an Asian buffet restaurant known as Ivory Tiger. Their menu intrigued us and we decided to try this new place out.

Little Tiger (小虎面)
The restaurant was newly opened on 15th of June last month. It is located next to Jessops on Churchill Way.

Interior, Little Tiger
Similar to Ivory Tiger, this restaurant offers oriental buffet lunch and dinner. Other than that, they also have an extensive range of a la carte Chinese food. Interestingly, they also serve Japanese, Thai, Malaysian, Vietnamese and Korean food.

Malaysian roti with curry (马来西亚薄饼), Little Tiger
We started out with Malaysian roti with curry (马来西亚薄饼). Priced at £2.00, the starter exceeded our expectations. Both roti and curry were authentic and delicious. I liked the roti so much that I can eat it on its own!

Custard bun (奶黄包), Little Tiger
Since Little Tiger offers a variety of dim sum, we had custard bun (奶黄包) for £2.40. The custard bun was sweet, creamy and fluffy. We enjoyed every bite of it!

Cantonese roast mix with rice (粤式三烧饭), Little Tiger
For our mains, we had Cantonese roast mix with rice (粤式三烧饭). Priced at £4.80, crispy roast pork, roast duck and char siu were served with steamed white rice. Their roast duck was our favourite. The roast pork was good too, tender and flavourful. However, the char siu was slightly hard to our liking.

Korean fried udon with kimchi (韩国辣白菜炒乌冬), Little Tiger
We also tried a main dish from their Korean selection. Priced at £3.99, the Korean fried udon with kimchi (韩国辣白菜炒乌冬) was something new to us. The dish was rather sour as it was cooked with a generous amount of kimchi. It was nice but different.

Watermelon Bubble Tea, Little Tiger
The watermelon bubble tea was quite good. The bubbles were chewy and the watermelon juice was refreshing. Our only complain was that the watermelon seeds were blended into the juice and it could be a bit annoying to keep spitting out seeds while drinking. However, we were told that they would get seedless watermelons next time.

Overall it was a pleasant dining experience for us in Little Tiger. The staff were friendly and polite too. It would be nice to drop by for an oriental meal when you are in town as the restaurant does not close for lunch break. We would definitely revisit this place!

I’ve tried their fresh make bubble tea many time, and I think it is the best bubble tea in the town. Also I notice that they have the authentic Chinese menu, which are realy tasty as well as their BBQ Lamb skewer and the Spicy Quail. They do the Vietnamese Pho as shown in the menu.

Matt McCabe: As Lily said, they do do Vietnamese noodles. Unfortunately, we have not tried it and we won’t get the opportunity to since we’re no longer based in Cardiff. If you try it out, do let us know! =P

Lily: We have to agree, their bubble teas are some of the best in Cardiff! Definitely cant go too wrong with the food from Little Tiger!
