This was the AK City Indo-Chinese takeaway (short for Angkor Wat), run by Steven and Lin Chung. In 2007 the couple were interviewed by the Guardian about their experiences in 1970s Cambodia. Said Steven:

"My father was a chef in Cambodia - he cooked for weddings and receptions for friends and neighbours. My training was as a cobbler, but when I came over here in 1980, shoe factories were closing down; it was the wrong moment to be a shoe-maker. That's why I ended up cooking."

The mural outside depicts Angkor Wat, painted by the East Oxford Action group to prevent graffiti. In 2017 it was still visible, though faded, but has now been painted over with a mural celebrating local funky brass band Horns of Plenty.
