Totally loved this restaurant. Dined here while staying at the langham. I loved the whole experience of having my food cooked in front of me, and with so much variety and options you can try so many different foods.

We have eaten here several times and the food is always really good. The menu seems to change slightly every time but still keeps its similar style. I have scored them average on the service only because they sometimes are a bit forgetful and distracted...More

Always impressed by the food and the welcome at Number 8. The setting is a little underwhelming but the maitre'd always takes the time to welcome and go through the menu. Portions are well sized and allow your average diner a shot of getting in...More
