I was interested in this restaurant because of its good reviews. but I was a bit disappointed. The service was wonderful, the girl who helped did her best to make us feel comfortable and happy with everything. The food was OK, but no more than average. We ordered wraps and baked camembert with cranberry sauce. The wraps were good (specially... More

Popped in myself as i was down for work and could only manage to get a seat at the bar as it was pretty packed - didn't mind as the staff made me feel welcome and comfortable with a bit of friendly chat. Food was amazing, presentation was spot on too. Would definitely go back!

It pains me to give three stars, but it's a fair assessment. Firstly, the staff are excellent, really friendly and lovely. My issue lies with the menu. The blackboard was basically impossible to read, it needs a good clean and to be set out in a much clearer way. The place bills tapas as a feature but had only three... More

Foodies who spend their time trying new and recommended restaurants in London every week we asked friends for a recommendation when visiting Norwich over Christmas. 42 King St came out tops and the TripAdvisor reviews were great so we decided to give it a go. Fairly busy for a week night there was a lovely atmosphere but it was quiet... More

Booked here on a Monday night with a party of 11 and was extremely impressed. Personally I can take or leave the cocktails but the choice of other drinks was good. All the food was excellent but the 5 bird platter was one of the nicest things I have ever eaten. My only regret is that I shared it with... More

We ate here for the first time this weekend after reading the great reviews and we weren't disappointed. There were 7 of us eating so rather than chose from the menu we asked the staff to pick a range of dishes for us, they were all excellent. the highlights for me were the prawns in a sherry-baad sauce and the...

If you like an experience rather then just a meal, this is the place to go. Everything about this place appeals greatly to me - it's independently owned, has a unique and cosy feel about it, the staff are polite and most of all, GREAT food and drink. Perfect for couples or small groups, a good way to try unusual... More
