Went to Mint Leaf for lunch today. We were the only reservation at lunch! (This is not surprising once you read the rest of my review). The dark room was empty and entirely devoid of any atmosphere. Kitchen also felt completely empty. Only the uncomfortable gaze of the wanting staff as we sat down. Menu's were tattered and old. Worst... More

Had a late dinner here and had a selection of starters, rice and mains to share with all. The food and flavours were delicious and fresh, service good considering we were a late booking 10.40pm, i just felt the price was a little steep, i guess due to the location.

The issue I have with a restaurant with a fancy name, in a high end location in the middle of Picadilly combined with the fancy decor and high prices is that unless they are going to pull out all the stops on the food they are only setting themselves higher and higher for a pretty big fall when the food...

Went here for pre-theatre food and drinks. The drinks were terrific and 2 for 1 on cocktails. Couldn't fault the food. All the staff were very friendly and genuine apart from one. Lovely welcome and shown to a table by the bar as we were early for our reservation. Sat down and got given drinks menus by a black girl... More

We were stuck on somewhere to go on a Friday night in London - we were there for the weekend and had arrived rather earlier than planned, so had time for a meal. It was, after all, Friday night so we asked our hotel (Amba Hotel - very nice) concierge where the best, nearest curry house was and he suggested... More

This is a very good Indian restaurant. The food is high quality and you will be given very clear advice on the menu and on the spiceness of the dishes. The only downside is the music which is too loud But very nice place for a diner. Good wines and cocktails, especially the Singapore Sling.

This is a great place for after dinner or after theater. Ask for Grace. She makes the experience even better.
