I went to Nivens Fine Foods with a work colleague ahead of a meeting this afternoon. We each had sweet potato curry lunch with two small side salads, mine a caprese and the other a potato salad. This is an extraordinarily good meal with excellent...More

Thank you for the music, english breakfast and the porridge. Bummed I didn't get to experience lunch or dinner but I look forward to coming back to King's Cross for a fine meal with Niven's. Try the jams with your toast, it's amazing.

Nivens is fantastic. 5 mins from office I salivate whenever I walk past the window. Always a good selection of hot food with various salads to either take away or eat in. Getting space is a bit of pot luck but everyone makes room if...More
