- “Brimful of Asia offers a fascinating guide to Asian cool…. successfully illustrating the wealth of intelligence, energy and influence being exhibited by young British Asians.. what we get is a lot of thought provoking stuff. ……Much more than just another yoof style programme, what Brimful ultimately delivers is a resounding death knell for white patronisation.” – Timeout
