Fortunately for me this is my local, just walking distance from my home, the food here is excellent, in fact it is better than excellent, it never disappoints, service is top drawer too, the soft shell crab and the deep fried oysters are to die for. The location of the restaurant is in the middle of the Isle of Dogs,... More

This was our last meal in the UK before returning home and it was definitely the best. The food was great and we struggled to finish our dishes. The staff were friendly, very efficient and quick although we did not feel rushed at all.Wished we could have gone here first so we could have returned
