We dined here on the 1st November. We turned up without a booking looking for a meal before heading off to watch Miss Saigon. The staff found us a table and were attentive, friendly and accommodating. The food was simple but tasty and at £12 for a two-course fixed price excellent value for money in this part of town. If...

I went there for dinner. The portion of the food was huge. It's really value for money. The staff there are quite friendly as well.

We had the pre-theatre three-course dinner and were not disappointed. The food was really very good--all six of us enjoyed all three courses. Not particularly fancy, but well-prepared and nicely presented. The service was actually the most attentive we had in London.

From the outside this looked lovely: old-fashioned bistro look, menu that covered plenty of choices, lots of stickers on the window saying it was recommended (including Trip Advisor!) so a friend and I thought we'd give it a go. The fact that the tables were small in order to squeeze as many in as possible seemed acceptable as it was... More

Lovely intimate restaurant with good Mediterranean type food. The decor is beautiful and there is a downstairs with more tables and small booths. Good value pre theatre meals just round the corner for the Prince Edward Theatre. Service of main course was a it slow and the desserts were disappointing but overall a very good meal for the money and... More

Excellent fixed price menu and very fast service. You are almost harrassed to finish, but when you are going to see a show you need to know the food will be served promptly. Turkish theme but plenty of choice for everyone. Reasonably priced wine, hugely expensive Stella!! (£6) but good service and a bustling atmosphere. Highly recommended.

Stumbled upon this little Mediterranean restaurant by chance; looked busy so gave it s try. Service and friendliness of staff was great. Good was lovely and very reasonably priced. 2 courses for £12! Crispy bacon and potato starter and lamb shish kebab for main. Both beautifully cooked. Would go back!

I'd been here before and it was great so I went back but it was not so great this time. Staff were inattentive and borderline rude. One waitress didn't speak English very well which she explained and we appreciated and were patient with her but she was still inattentive and rude. The food wasn't up to scratch at all. Practically... More
